Visited this incredibly beautiful German village last weekend- called Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Didn't realize at the time it was a hotbed of insurrection against the 2011 Olympics. http://www.thelocal.de/sport/20101214-31795.html Mostly it comes across as another amazingly beautiful German village-this one at the edge of the Alps. The road outside the Hotel was first paved by the Romans and the museum next door had the oldest bed in Bavaria-1400's or so-plus lots of other incredibly ancient and interesting stuff-5 floors full in the only building that survived the "great fire" of 1886 that leveled the town. This museum building dated from at least the 1500's and the attic, where a lot of tools are stored, was just amazing-huge post and beam, very few nails, solid as could probably ever be built.
