Mittenwald is a popular summer and winter resort on the edge of the Karwendel Alpine Park and just north of the Austrian border.
It is on the main route south from Munich to Innsbruck and, importantly for those looking to visit the town, it also has direct rail connections between the town and the two cities.
As well as the stunning alpine scenery, Mittenwald has plenty of history to explore - from markets in the Middle Ages to glaciers to river commerce to violin-making.
As mentioned above the town has a fascinating past and we go into more detail about the town, the river Isar and the history
