Garmisch, Germany, "Glory" for Christmas!

There are so many places to celebrate and enjoy Christmas, but Bavaria is a wonderful area to treat your loved ones very special!

 

Start with the wonderful holiday reception at the Munich Airport,

There are many Christmas displays at the airport.  It gets you "In the mood"!

Nothing like having people pass you on the Autobahn and you are doing 150 MPH!

They are gone so quickly, when you see the headlights flash, get over!

No Marriott's, so this is a great place1

The Zugspitzer, is a special site

Great Christmas places to shop on Marionnplatz!  All is fun!

    Beautiful pictures Jerry.  I can see how you'd love it there, especially at Christmas time.

      tryt and razor,

       

      Thanks for the comments!

       

      Headed for Oberammergau (Passion Play town) today!  Thought you might enjoy a few more pictures of Garmisch.

      The calm river runs through town.

      A view of The Alps, with the frozen lake, it's behind the "Old Renaissance"!  (By the way, that hotel is nothing like it used to be as a Marriott property).  Would never stay at the "Former Renaissance", service was non-existant, and a sad departure from my former stays there!

        Jerry, I love the pictures.  This area just might be our Christmas destination in 2013.

          razorbackfan,

           

          This time of year is a great time to be in the area.  If you are not planning on skiing, the prices are down and will go much higher around December 15th!

           

          If you do decide to go, let me know, so I can share some more MRI with you!

      Thank-you for your comments!

        Jerry,

        Happy Belated Birthday!  Headed to San Diego this weekend for my mom's birthday.  To piggyback on your comment to RBF, it seems like this time of year is a GREAT time of year to go just about anywhere, in terms of prices.  There seem to be stellar deals everywhere.  (P.S.  Even though I'm not going to Garmisch for Christmas, my kids will still be going!  I will try to make it there in February or May/June when I go back.)

          pluto,

           

          That Amtrak idea is a wonderful one!  Always wanted to try it, and once staying in San Clemente, went down toward the Pacific just to watch the train go by!

           

          Your hands will be full on the week-end, but you bring back great memories of those Friday "Farmers Market" in downtown Long Beach. (Sorry, we are getting off the "AM" Track here! (I'll be on the "Abuse", list again!

           

          Miss the great meals at "Sir Winston's on the Queen Mary, and I think it was "5555" a wonderful steakhouse just down from the Renaissance.

           

          Pluto, thank-you for the Birthday wishes.  It was a wonderful day and highlighted by a great dinner at "La Vie", a fine newer French place in Garmisch!

           

          Will have some new information and photo's soon!

            They can put me on the abuse list right along with you.  The Surfliner is the Amtrak line that goes from San Diego to Los Angeles Union Station.  It's a great coastal ride from SD to about San Juan Capistrano, then it veers inland through Orange County and on to LA.  The Pacific Starlight is the line that runs from LA to Seattle, but you really only see the Pacific Ocean from about LA to San Luis Obispo, I think.  Then the rest of the track veers inland enough to miss the ocean, if I'm correct.  Nonetheless, I really want to go from Jack London Square up to Seattle on the Pacific Starlight someday (it's a 12 hour journey.)  It would be Seattle, Vacouver and Victoria sandwiched inbetween San Francisco stays.

             

            Thanks for posting the "La Vie" info!

              P.S.  We're flying to SD, only because we got a stellar deal on Alaska Airlines.  It will be nice to avoid the 7 hour drive through LA!

                You are a "Lucky Lady"!

                 

                There are NO easy drives thru LA!

            Sorry I missed this earlier.  Glad y'all are enjoying things there in Germany.  The pictures look beautiful and so does your wife.

              Thank-you!

               

              I am very fortunate to have a "Travel partner" like her!

               

              We have a wonderful time together, and the only time she get's upset, is when I spend too much time on the computer!

               

              Thank God, she is so busy, she doesn't know how much time I really spend, so keep it between us!

               

              Take care, and Merry Christmas to you!

        Happy Birthday!  Such a beautiful place to spend it too!!  I'm sure you are aging gracefully, like a fine wine

              You really know how to make a "Special moment"!

                More snow!

                IMG_2893.JPG

                This is the back of the hotel.  This is a great hotel, it was once rated one of the 50 best in the World!  Rendle's Partenkirchner Hof, is very relaxing and in a wonderful location, just a block from the train station and a block from The Visitor Center!

                IMG_2829.JPG

                If you are taking the train here, you can rent a car from AVIS, as it is right in the station.  Likewise, there is one of the two Burger Kings in town in the train station.  You can have a Whopper while you await your car!.  Again the hotel is less than a block away, just strait out these doors!

                 

                IMG_2827.JPG

                I am a big believer in "Visitor Centers" here just a block from the hotel, you can get valuable tourist information in English!

                By the way, there is a little market, between the hotel and the Visitor Center that sells you a nice bottle of wine for less than one glass at the hotel!  If you don't mind "Pouring your own"!

              La Vie, is a place you would enjoy!  They are family oriented and I will soon post a "Very special" place that was wonderful!  You won't imagine that in this wonderful place there was a "Dog-fight", no I am not kidding!  Will have more, but am going to dinner now.
