Garmisch-Partenkirchen is best-known as Germany's number one winter resort - but the summer attractions in and around the Alpine town make it a year-round destination.
It can be reached by regional trains from the hubs of Munich to the north and Innsbruck over the border im Austria as well as having a scenic rail link through to Füssen.
Despite the connections with Richard Strauss and some of the typical Bavarian architecture, the main sights are the spectacular peaks of the Wetterstein range rising directly outside the town.
