Mittenwald is that quintessential Bavarian village we’ve all dreamt about visiting. This tiny town located in southern Germany at the Austrian border is full of charming people, quaint buildings festooned by traditional Lüftlmalerei, great food and history all ringed by majestic mountains.
Yes, Mittenwald is too charming for mere words. I was lucky enough to visit Mittenwald last summer and for Travel Photo Thursday I”m sharing some of my favorite photos that tell the story of why Mittenwald is known as one of the most beautiful and charming Bavarian villages.
Lüftlmalerei is defined as a tradition of painting the facade of a building and Bavaria is famous for it. These murals depict village life or carry a religious or hunting theme.
Between the mountains and the lovely canal running through the streets of Mittenwald, it is important you look up and down while visiting Mittenwald!
These photo’s are shared as part of Travel Photo Thursday.

Maybe I’ll see you there.
