Hi Dear....Planning a Winter trip to Germany and Austria with wife and two teenaged daughters. Will start in Munich. Considering a couple of days in Mittenwald in late December 2014 before we move on to Salzburg. We prefer to drive a rental car but coming from southern California and not used to driving in the snow nor ice. I have the following questions:
1) Are the roads cleared off and safe to drive in my way to Mittenwald?
2) We will be going to Fussen to see the castle on the third day, how far is the drive? Safe in terms of no ice on the roads?
3) If instead of driving, we take the train....Are we going to spend a lot of time waiting in train/bus terminals?
4) In Mittenwald is there a place where we can do horse sleigh riding on the snow? If so,how do we get there from town?
Thanks in advance for the answers
Middle of April weather? Shops and restaurants open?
If we stay in Mittenwald are there routes from town to other nearby villages that we could ride to for a day trip?
For example, last year we stayed in Toblach, south Tirol where we rented electric bikes for a week. Each day we rode another route ( usually on traffic free bike paths ) to ther ares, like Cortina then got on a train with our bike and came back to our hotel in Toblach .
I have asked this question to both bike rental company near your barnhof and the Tourist office but no one answers. So question is, are there bike routes from Mittenwald that are OK for seniors, not mountain bikers ?
What is your opinion?

Is there a train from Mittenwald to the Munich Airport (MUC). Our flight leaves MUC at 12:20 p.m. Can we make that flight? What time should we leave Mittenwald? Thank you.
Hi all! Arriving Munich and wish to take a train to Mittenwald. Will buy a Bayern ticket for the 2 of us. Just wondering what the Mittenwald trainstation is known as cos when I tried the debahn website, there was a list of Mittenwald places and I wasn't sure which one to choose as i didnt see a hbf there.
2) Also does anybody know if the visitor card is for free? If not, how much is it?I should be staying for a week or so.
3)Does anyone know of any special events taking place during the month of october or November so I can reschedule my stay there just to attend a festival or cultural event?
4) Can I bus from Mittenwald to Seefeld or do I need to take a train?
Ok, so here's the deal... next fall, please God, I'm planning to visit Mittenwald for 2 weeks, then follow this up with a 2 week stay in my beloved West Cork, Ireland. I'll be out of the US for about a month, all told, so I suspect that I'll have to pack heavily!!Anyway, I'm wondering a couple of things:1. A relatively inexpensive place to stay that is convenient by foot to the town center in Mittenwald, 2. I know little, if any, German, so do the locals speak any English @ all?,and 3.Getting back to Munich...is there a railroad station in MIttenwald to get me to the airport, and if so, does Aer Lingus fly out of there? Thanks, "Rex"
Hi, We will be in Mittenwald on April 11th. I have been checking the weather and looks like they are still getting snow. Am I corroct on this? Is this unusual this time of the year? What do you think I shoud expect arounn the time I will be there? Thanks so much!
HI AGAIN:) JUST WANT YOUR OPINION...I KNOW IT'S A MONTH AWAY, WHAT DO YOU THINK THE WEATHER WILL BE LIKE EASTER WEEK. I KNOWS IT'S HARD TO PREDICT, BUT WONDERING IF WE WILL BE ABLE TO STILL SEE "SNOW" ON THE GROUND...I KNOW WE WILL SEE IT ON THE MOUNTAIN TOPS...
ALSO...THINKING OF HAVING AN EASTER EGG HUNT FOR OUR 9 YO DAUGHTER & MAYBE A PICNIC, EASTER SUNDAY AFTERNOON. IS THERE SUCH A PLACE WE COULD GO IN MITTENWALD & HAVE THIS? IS THERE A PARK OR A VALLEY WE COULD WALK TO?
How do we get from Munich Airport to Mittenwald Train station? What are the steps we need to take? And how long will it take? I'm trying to figure out what time we will arrive at Mittenwald Trainstation. Our flight arrives in Munich on Saturday, Apr 11th at 7:50 AM. Thank-you for any advise.
Hi, We will be in Mittenwald over Easter week and wanted to attend Easter Sunday Service. Is there a church in Mittenwald that we would be able to attend Easter Sunday service? Also will it be german or English spoken?
How can we find out information on this church as far as time of service & so forth.
Thanks so much
Can anyone give me a link to a street map of the town. Are the lakes within walking distance of the train station. Going on a day visit - are there any must sees.Any help will be appreciated.
