Did you know that...

...Mozart played a Mittenwald violin? The vacation destination became world-famous for its "Bavarian Stradivaris". The music in Alpenwelt Karwendel is more diverse than anywhere else in Bavaria: The repertoire ranges from true folk music to church concerts to performances by world-famous stars at Castle Elmau.

Mittenwald, Krün and Wallgau are just as famous for their historical outdoor frescoes. The magnificent "picture books" on houses are typical of the Werdenfels region and Upper Bavaria. The annual traditions are also wonderfully colorful in Bavaria. Experience them at a traditional social evening, May pole festivals, bringing in the cattle or church celebrations! The hustle and bustle of the "Maschkera" is unique to Bavaria, with quaint "Faschingsgesellen" (Carnival revelers in amusing costumes) wear hand-carved wooden masks and parade through the towns and villages.
