"I noticed that some of the buildings have beautiful pictures painted on them, what is the reason , do all the houses have these beautiful paintings? Thank you." (posted 08/17/2015)

This is a tradition of beautifying the houses. Out of respect for the painted churches the paintings are mounted externally. They call this kind of painting Lüftlmalerei and is mainly practiced in Upper Bavaria still today.

"My wife and I are coming to Mittenwald by train this June for 4 - 5 days. My question is whether I want to spend the money on a rental car if we want to spend one day going to the castles near Fussen or are there tour buses we could take (saving us the rental fee)?" (posted 03/23/2014)

Rental cars are available in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, but not worth it for just one day. There are buses from Mittenwald doing tours to the castles. Booking at the local travel agency, see below. Imperial Castles On the Tracks of King Ludwig II Price: €21 Thursdays No ID required Country: Germany Departure: Seefeld: 08:40 Mittenwald: 09:00 Krün / Wallgau: 09:15 Return: around 6:00 pm Trip around the Ammergebirge mountains. Via Ettal monastery to the most beautiful rokoko church of Germany, the Wieskirche, and to the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Built under Ludwig II, the castles rise majestically above the lake landscape with a magnificent view of the mountains (guided tour). Return through the Lechtal valley past the Zugspitze.

In our area, it's better to get a rental car and avoid having to wait. From Mittenwald, there are also bus companies going to the castles. Always only on weekdays, and it could just as well be a Monday as a Friday, as it all depends on the company operating the bus and on the registrations to travel with them.

Of course it would be easier for the guest to rent a car, as there would be many attractions in the surrounding area, in addition to the royal palaces. But there is much that can be reached by the organized bus. Here is the link to the company: http://www.kriner.info/tagesfahrten.aspx . There is an office in the center of Mittenwald for bookings. You can also contact the company Kriner in advance, at any time. The bus service unfortunately only operates in season, from May to October. Garmisch, Innsbruck, Munich etc. can be reached by trains running several times a day.

Mittenwald is a small place. In town, you will hardly need a car. The trailheads are easily reached on foot. The name of the railway station is Bahnhof Mittenwald. There are hotels, such as Hotel Alpenrose, Hotel Post, just 5 minutes (walking) from the train station. These hotels are in the pedestrian zone right in the center of town. Hope that helps.

More about the History of Mittenwald

Its location as an important transit centre on a relatively low (and therefore predicable) transalpine route has been a defining feature of Mittenwald for at least two thousand years: during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries traffic was boosted by large treasure trains sent regularly from Spain to pay troops in the Netherlands, the more conventional sea route having been rendered unreliable by the (usually) discrete but effective sympathy with which the English Protestant establishment favoured the Spanish king's rebellious Dutch subjects.
