After spending the last 13 months living in the Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, it's safe to say this place is a hiker's paradise. Germany is full of beautiful mountain lakes, wildflower meadows, and breathtaking peaks to climb.

When people ask why I want to make Germany a permanent home, these 23 photos right here sum up why. The alps. They're simply magical. Enjoy some of our backyard explorations.

I know it's not, but it looks like a storybook miniature, especially if I exclude the clouds!

Zugspitze from an awesome awesome hike. Amazing "Klamm" (gorge) below, beautiful valley in the middle and breathtaking via ferrata above. It's one of the mist popular bigger via ferrata rputs of the alps, for good reasons!

My son is being deployed to Germany (for 3 years) next year and I'm going with them. I'm German/Austrian but haven't been back since I was ~11, so it's been ~39 years since I've been home. I want to move back there, but I don't do well with cold weather (I live in Florida now), but I'm going to see how I hold up. If all goes well, I might not come back at all. 🤞
