Embedded between Wetterstein, Kranzberg and Karwendel lies the picturesque violin making and climatic spa Mittenwald in Upper Bavaria. North of the Isar source, Bavaria meets Tirol and, besides much culture, offers the ideal starting point for an active holiday in the mountains.
The landscape diversity ranges from crocus meadows to jagged rocks
Leisurely tours start around the Kranzberg chairlift – to higher mountains you will need the Karwendel cableway
Culture experts will treasure the Geigenbaumuseum and the genuine folk music
Thanks to ideal transport connections, it can also quite comfortably be reached without a car.
Centuries ago, Mittenwald was the trade gate to the South and later reached fame through its violin making. The historic centre still testifies today to its cultural flowering and old traditions which have been preserved to the present day. Not only the place itself, but the surroundings too are also inviting. Embedded in the Bavarian Alps, you find here the perfect conditions for a holiday in Bavaria as it should be.
