City at the Mountain

  12 votes
Garmisch is the most famous and popular resort in the German Alps, because it is positioned at the foot of the Zugspitze, and it's hosting of the fourth Winter Olympics in 1936.


A great picture I took of the Zugspitze from behind Garmisch.
A great picture I took of the Zugspitze from behind Garmisch.
After the hosting of the Winter Olympics, Garmisch was really put on the map. Soon, towns began neighboring Garmisch, also attracting tourists with their (historic) shops.

Favourite spots:
The Zugspitze is a great mountain for hiking. It's about 2.964 km (1.841 mi.) high, peak still growing like any other mountain.

What's really great:
The core of the town is very historic and beautiful, it's architecture and paintings of the buildings and houses are worth seeing.

Sights:
The Sight from both Garmisch towards the Zugspitze, and from the Zugspitze to Garmisch and it's neighboring cities; that is, the air is clear and not foggy.

Accommodations:
The Hotel on the american base is a great accomodation, but I don't exactly know how accomodations are outside of base.

Mike the photograph attached to your report is really excellent. I think that you could write lots more though and if you do you will get some really good ratings.

When rating reports we seem to award points for the number of sections completed and photographs inserted and then assess their quality. See the forum http://www.globosapiens.net/topic-rating-reports_48_1279_0000.html - it tells you all about how other members rate reports. In turn that informs you what is needed to write a top report.
Of course you need to do your research, think about it and, put it in your own words. Obviously, you will have had to visit the place yourself and hopefully will have taken some pictures to illustrate your report too.

I am sure that all Globo's will help, advise and assist you, should you need it. Never be frightened to ask any of us - we are here to help each other.

Finally, great to see you contributing......keep up the good work. Remember - "practice makes perfect".
