Passport to Adventure Bavarian Life in Garmisch-Partenkirchen Germany
The snowcapped Bavarian Alps are the highest mountains in Germany, a perfect backdrop for skiing adventures and cultural discoveries. In the Olympic village of Garmisch, Julie Conover &Mark Jennings visit with Gerhardt Ester, a local character who’s murals adorn the town’s historic buildings. Nearby, in Mittenwald, some of the world’s most famous violins were crafted 3 centuries ago. Today, the narrow streets of this quaint village are home to workshops where intricately carved instruments are still produced. On the slopes of the Zugspitze, Mark &Julie meet the competitors on the European Carving Tour, a exciting new type of ski racing .
