Holiday rentals in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
In the shadow of Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain, and on the border of Austria, lies the picturesque town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, a mountain resort in Bavaria.
Garmisch and and Partenkirchen were, until the 1930s, seperate towns. Partenkirchen originated 2 millennia ago as the Roman town of Partanum, and Garmisch is the 800 year younger sibling. Both towns have seen their fair share of history, the remnants of which are etched into the buildings and surrounding land masses. In more recent times, the town had the spotlight thrown on it when it held the first Winter Olympics to feature Alpine Skiing - a highlight of all holiday rentals Germisch-Partenkirchen.
Alpine Winter Sports
A Garmisch-Partenkirchen holiday rental is perfect for those with a penchant for Winter Sports.

The town is regarded by connoisseurs as having some of the the best skiing areas in the country, and thus is popular for those seeking to ski, snowboard and hike.
Away from the slopes
There are other sights of interest for those staying in a Garmisch-Partenkirchen holiday rental, like the impressive Partnach Gorge, where the river Partnach winds its way through a mile long gap in the cliffs of limestone. The mountains also house The King's House, a castle which boasts the Alpengarten auf dem Schachen, a botanical garden. Holiday rentals Germisch-Partenkirchen offers a superb, isolated, but easily accessible getaway. In the summer one can also go hiking, jogging, cycling, climbing, swimming, and much more.
