Wood carvings and frescoes

Oberammergau is an idyllic place in the Bavarian Alps. The village is famous for the ancient tradition of the “Passionsspiele”, which have taken place every ten years since 1634 illustrating the life of Jesus Christ. But it is also worth a visit due to the rich history in wood carvings and the unique frescoes featured on many houses.

The Pilatus House has frescoes by Franz Seraph Zwinck. The Kölblhaus has a flat saddle roof and a façade also painted by Zwinck. The Oberammergau Museum exhibits woodc arvings by artists from the region.

"Geigenbauer & Kraxentroger"

"Geigenbauer & Kraxentroger" means pretty much "Violin maker & historic backpacker"

Mittenwald, surrounded by alpine peaks, is known for its colourfully painted houses and its violin making history. The church of St. Peter and Paul, built in the 18th century, is characterised by colourful frescoes. To the west of the village, forest paths lead past Lautersee and the Laintal waterfall. To the northwest, the Hohe Kranzberg offers hiking trails with beautiful vistas.

The Bavarian capital

Our state capital is definitely worth a visit. Enjoy the historic buildings and numerous museums. The Bavarian state capital is famous for its annual Oktoberfest and its beer halls, including the Hofbräuhaus, which opened in 1589. In the old town center, the Marienplatz, you will find landmarks such as the neo-Gothic New Town Hall, whose popular glockenspiel plays melodies and depicts stories from the 16th century.
