Chocolate in Garmisch

dsc_9476

Surrounded by beautiful views of the highest mountain in Germany, called Zugspitze I was wandering around the streets of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, a  little adorable town at the foot of the Zugspitze. It’s buildings are adorned with paintings, called Lueftlmalerei, meaning that they are applied in the fresh air right on the walls. Most often  they refer to scenes from the bible or historical events of the town.

It’s been a very frosty and sunny day.

But who would have guessed that my city stroll would lead me to a very fine chocolaterie, named Amelie. I spotted the sign from far.

Amelie’s speciality is their broken pieces of chocolate

There are little plates of samples all over the place and each piece just melts softly in your mouth.

Some older business are adorned with handmade metal signs hanging above their store, like this bakery.

A beautiful walk through Garmisch on the day before Christmas. The star is just pointing at the top of the mountain, Zugspitze.

    As always loved your images of Garmisch. I was so fortunate to spend several days there a few years ago during December. It is such a beautiful magical town. Going to the Zugspitze was amazing like being on the top of the world! You have captured it all! Of course, a taste of chocolate is always a treat for the eyes, tongue and soul! xxx

    Amelie! One of my favorite movies. A love story with a chocolate background. Thank you for the photographs.

    • Oh I never thought about the movie, you are right such a lovely movie. I didn’t think about the connection between the movie and the chocolaterie I visited. Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention.

  6. Oh, it’s so good to see Garmisch again. I lived not far from there years ago and always enjoyed visiting this little town. Thanks for sharing, Cornelia.
