Mittenwald
Wonderfully Bavarian
Written By :
MUST SEES | Bavaria

In Mittenwald you feel as if you were walking through a beautifully detailed painted dollhouse. Small, brightly polished streets, a stream that runs through the pedestrian zone, along with a view of the Karwendel and elaborately painted houses.

Among them is the Neuner Haus at the upper market, where the twelve apostles have been painted on in 1746. Also in the Ballenhausgasse street, one of the oldest streets of Mittenwald, there are numerous decorated houses with ‘Lüftlmalerei’. In the Matthias Klotz street you will find the beautifully painted Hornsteiner house and house Seitz. Make sure to take a look at the parish church of St. Peter and Paul, a gem of Bavarian rococo. Particularly beautiful are the painted tower and the frescoes by Matthias Günther.

You can also enjoy worldly pleasures in Mittenwald. Especially at the cheese lam shop, which is located in the city on Dekan-Karl Square. Given the choice, it is hard to decide what to try first. The cheeses are all from the region, as well as the country bread, and a specialty is the fresh, pure and bursting with Omega -3 fatty acids hay milk from local cows spending their summer on nearby meadows and that are fed hay in winter.
