Maddy's Trip to Germany
Posted: Oct 18 2013
There’s no better time to visit Germany than the Fall. Yes, it is true that Munich celebrates its famous Oktoberfest for 16 days starting in September and ending the first weekend in October. Liters of delicious German beer, soft pretzels, blondes in Dimdl’s and live music are hard to resist. But, it’s also true that there is more to Germany than Oktoberfest in Fall.
Maddy, our co-founder got to experience both the world-renowned Bavarian festival and the crisp air and orange leaves at the foot of the German Alps in a small ski town called Garmisch-Partenkirchen at the Eibsee Hotel. Here are some pictures from her special trip, where she reconnected with her German roots (Jocelyn and Maddy’s grandma is German and their Dad lived in Garmisch for 4 years).
Maddy and Paul stayed at an all-wooden hotel at the foot of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain and a few miles from Garmisch-Partenkirchen where the 1936 Winter Olympics were held.
This famous castle was built as an ode to the composer Richard Wagner’s work and served as inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty castle.
A view of King Ludwig II's palace and gorgeous gardens.
Munich! Oktoberfest with Toby, Maddy’s brother, and his buddies who met up with Maddy after running the Berlin Marathon the week prior and rewarded themselves in the Spatenbrau tent.
Farewell to Germany and a big Thank You to Maddy’s family friends who showed her the German way to an authentic Oktoberfest experience. PROST!
When she wasn't in her dirndl, Maddy was showing off some of our favorite fall items.
