Mittenwald

This little village nestled below the German alps is nicknamed the "living picture book." Every building is beautifully painted and tells its own story.

Down the main street a little trough of water flows and at night the babbling sound of this stream is all that can be heard in this sleepy town.

Our hotel had main street on one side and the the German Alps on the other.

Look closely at this picture. This cafe had individual wooden shade structures for your beer! Underneath those wooden houses on the table were beer glasses. While traveling you see some weird things that are very unique to a certain area, this is one of those things. We walked by and almost everybody looked very local and borderline sunburned. Eyes closed and faces to the sky trying to gather the last of the summer sunshine. These little "beer shades" were pretty awesome.
