Garmisch – Your German Alps Getaway


Have you ever visited skiing destinations in Germany? You might not have heard of many and one of the tucked away treasures of this country, high up on the Alps is Garmisch. I was told about the Alps by a friend who owns Maid Clan in Denver.  She told me I should read about it and I did.  Then I decided to make it one of my destinations as I traveled through Germany.

Did you know that Garmisch is home to the highest peak in this country, part of the European Alps, known as Zugspitze. If you thought that the Alps only means France, Switzerland or Austria, think again. German skiing is the best to experience in the town of Garmisch with spell bounding views of the Alps.

I came here by train from Munich which is a one and half hour ride. You might find the journey to this ski town slightly long and tedious but the destination is worth the travel.

I also discovered Gothic churches here that are historic landmarks as well as a statue of Michael-Ende Kurpark, a famous author of the country.

To get away from the daily hustle-bustle of the city, I took a weekend trip to Oakville. This place has a small town feel to it and is a great option when it comes to the holiday destination. Only 30 kilometers drive from Toronto took me to this pristine city. However, it is often neglected by tourists. If you are ever in Toronto, I would ask you to spend a day or two in Oakville. Take a look at what you can do when you are in the city.

Top Five Places to Visit in Prague


Do you know the nickname of Prague? It is “the city of a hundred spires” Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic. Prague is known worldwide for its beer, Czech food, and architecture. Make sure you enjoy each of this. Being the largest and most populous city in the Czech Republic, you will find several attractions. Below are four places you should visit to make your Prague tour memorable.

The Prague Castle

You will like The Prague Castle. It is the largest castle in the world and occupies an area of 18 acres. If you thought it was just a building, your imagination is deceiving. Many people travel from all corners of the world to see this medieval monument.  It has survived both world wars despite being at the center of the conflict. Lying at the heart of Europe, it is one of the continent’s iconic monuments.

The Charles’s Bridge

Apart from the castle, make sure you cross the famous Charles’s Bridge. It was named after Emperor Charles V, and it is as elegant as him. This bridge has some statistical significance. The king who oversaw its construction is said to be a maniac in numbers. He believed constructing it using symmetry will bring good luck. Well, it did- according to him. The bridge is 516 meters long, and by the standard of its time, this was a very long bridge. You will love crossing it especially when you learn that it was part of the royal route. It might be the most beautiful bridge in Europe.

A 50 Centimeters Street?

This fact is hilarious but true. Prague has a 50cm street! It exists, but you can not walk on it- it is so small even for a cat! The road has deserved the right to have its traffic rights. You may ask what the traffic lights are used for since no vehicle would use a 50 cm street but the lights are not meant for the cars. The lights are used by pedestrians to prevent them from meeting at the middle and wondering how to walk past each other. This street can be found near the Charles Bridge. Do not visit it; you will not walk in it.

The Zizkov Tower

Do not leave Prague without visiting the Zizkov Tower. It hovers over the Charle’s Bridge and has a small restaurant where you can have a great view of the entire city of Prague. It stands high above a hill in the district of Zizkov, and that is where it got its name. The tower is an excellent illustration of high-tech architecture. It’s a unique transmitter tower that was built between 1985 and 1992. The tower is also famous for the great work of art by David Cerny. The artwork consists of black crawling babies sculptured using bronze.

Final Short

If you are planning to visit Prague, get ready to walk for long distances. Leave your high heels at home and get something comfortable to walk in because you may end up walking the whole day. And I don’t think you want to look stupid trying to negotiate the cobbled streets in stilettos. One thing for sure is you would like to keep some memories after visiting Prague so don’t forget to carry your camera because there is so much to capture.
