The town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in Bavaria’s deep south, is about one and a half hours from Munich. Its unwieldy name was the result of two towns amalgamating so Germany could qualify as host of the 1936 Winter Olympics (the same year of the infamous Nazi propaganda exercise that was the Summer Olympics in Berlin). The resulting town remains an important winter sports center as well as the gateway to Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze.
