Whenever we travel I like to do a little bit of research on not only the best places to see and where to eat; but the history on what has happened in these beautiful towns. When we first found out we were headed to Garmisch I was engulfed in research because the 1936 Olympics where hosted here under Nazi-Regime and I have this crazy love of pictures from ‘then & now’ —> Check out this amazing side by side gallery. When we are these places I love to just imagine what it was like then & try to emerse myself in the culture as much as I can.
We toured a Concentration Camp Dachua while we were visiting Munich so seeing these pictures with Hitler is very sombering to look through. There is so much history in Garmisch that I could spend weeks reading all about it! But for now, pictures! Our group of Dental Wives rounded up all the kids and headed about 15 minutes away from the resort to get to the trail head to hike to this beautiful memorial.
At the trail head after the hike, I highly recommend enjoying some food at the restaurant. I had a potato soup followed by a sugar explosion that was TO DIE FOR. This hike was super easy and stroller friendly! A great family afternoon adventure!
