During our tour to Germanie's mountains we will visit the resort  Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Nestled at the base of a number of tall mountains, it's well known as a winter sports resort and is famous for hosting the 1936 Winter Olympics, along with the International Alpine Skiing Championships. The town's history can be traced back to AD 15, when Partanum was a major stopover on the Venice to Augsburg trade route. The wide valley of the Loisach is enclosed by mighty mountains: to the north, Kramer and the Wank; to the south, the towering Wetterstein group, with the Kreuzeck, the jagged Alpspitze, and the Dreitorspitze  and the Zugspitze  2,962 meters Germany's highest mountain. Next we will visit to the Partnach Gorge or Partnachklamm is one of the main highlights when visiting the Bavarian town of Garmisch Partenkirchen. Walking the pathway between the narrow gorge walls with the turquoise water down below is sure to be a highlight during your time in the region. Declared a natural monument in 1912, the Partnach gorge will cast its spell on you with its wild waterfalls, water rapids and tranquil water basins. Once upon a time, visitors trying to walk through the gorge risked their lives, but nowadays there are two safe paths available. Also a fascinating perspective view offers the iron bridge with its height of around 225 feet / 70 metres.Next you will can choose what do you want to visit . The tour offers three routes , the first which is recommended for not more sported tourists is visit to AlpspiX, which is possible by the cable car. The  AlpspiX is  a floating steel X in the jagged cliffs – this is the AlpspiX  viewing platform, which is located directly over the mountain station of the Alpspitzbahn cable car. The Höllental valley lies thousands of metres below, above is only white-blue sky. You can have an uninterrupted view of the Zugspitze mountain, the Waxenstein mountains, the north face of the Alpspitz mountain, and down into the valley from the glass bridges. Head on up from Garmisch on the Bavarian Zugspitzbahn railway and Alpspitzbahn cable car. The second rout offers to you litle bit difficulter way. You can visit to the highest mount of Germany which  is one of the biggest draws to this corner of Bavaria is the 2,962-meter-tall Zugspitze. There you can  visit the summit, as well as the Zugspitzplatt, a plateaued area well known for its caves and glaciers. The Bayerischen Zugspitzbahn, a cog railway, ascends the mountain. And third route is only for people  with well sport condition. This way is long approximately 10 km and two ways take  7 - 8 hours, but it's worth it. At the end of one way you will see not only the beautiful view to the nountains  but the very interesting King's House on Schachen. King Ludwig II started planning to build a house in the mountains in the Werdenfelser Land area in 1869. He chose the location as Schachen, at the foot of the Wetterstein massif, at an altitude of 1866 metres – unsurprisingly, as it offers one of the most magnificent vistas of the high mountains to be seen anywhere in the Bavarian Alps. In contrast to the buildings erected by his father Max II, the house was not intended as a lodge for hunting – a pastime that Ludwig II firmly rejected. The building was intended to enable him to enjoy the high mountains while still enjoying every comfort. The exterior of the King’s House is based on the wooden ‘Swiss chalet’ type, which was popular for holiday houses among the nobility and wealthy citizens in the 19th century. The division of rooms, with a central salon, is similar to that in French upper-class villas of the period. The five residential rooms on the ground floor – with panelling of cembra pine and comfortable furnishings – resemble an Alpine holiday home of the time. In contrast, oriental splendour predominates in the Turkish Hall on the upper floor. It is based on a historic hall in the Palace of Eyüp, erected by Sultan Selim III in the late 18th century. Ludwig II, who had a strong interest in Eastern cultures, had seen a depiction of the hall in an English publication in 1840. Gilded, richly decorated walls, a fountain in the centre, elaborately embroidered stools and divans, a costly carpet, luxuriantly decorated accessories such as incense burners and candelabra, with light from large glass windows featuring colourful ornamentation, perfectly match the image of an Oriental hall of state. Ludwig II celebrated his birthday and name day here every 25 August. To perfect the impression made by the room, servants in Oriental costume were positioned in the hall, where they had to smoke hookahs and drink tea. Contrived scenes of this sort were in the tradition of living pictures that was very popular in the 19th century. After we return to Munich.
