The only reason I decided to visit Mittenwald Germany was it’s status as one of the most beautiful Bavarian villages.
As divulged in Magical Mittenwald – Bavaria at its Best I am a complete sucker for the quaint villages so often found deep in Bavaria near the Austrian border. So off I went to Mittenwald in search of “that” village.
This is what I found!
This peaceful alpine village is known for it’s painted buildings and they are everywhere! The frescoes depict both religious themes and details of the history of Mittenwald.
Surrounding Mittenwald are the mountains, which are right there!
As in most European villages, the church takes center stage. The lovely Sts. Peter and Paul church is at the center of Mittenwald. You can’t miss the lovely frescoed tower!
Even though this church is slightly more modest than other European churches, the inside of the church is very beautiful and full of tiny details.
I love these alpine Bavarian villages, what is your favorite type village to spend time in?
