Hanging Out in Garmish - Home of the 1936 Winter Olympics
We made the mistake of picking a holiday to visit one of Munich's favorite day-trip cities, which meant everything was closed - with the exception of the local beer garden. This was lucky for us as it was just sunny enough to sit outside. The historic town of Garmish was beautiful, and we stopped by one of mad King Ludwig's castles on the way back - one of his smallest, yet most visited by the King. We're convinced that it is because it was so remote, and it was one of the few places his enemies could not reach him. Something to be said for a peaceful night sleep, when you are King - I suppose.
