Garmisch: What to do in August?
I, my wife and children aged 6 and 8 will be in Garmisch for a week in early August. What do you recommend we do for entertainment?

Ash, the web site of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen Tourist Office lists all current events till July 19. I suppose they will update regularly. Check in later, before you leave.<BR><BR>Next to hiking, you'll will find a lot of useful information there. Click English flag and then "Events". However, that part is in German, but you will be able to see that there is a lot on. Don't worry. Summer entertainment is guaranteed.<BR>Have fun!<BR><BR>

Bob has made very good suggestions. Let me add two places to visit near Wieskirche. There is an outstanding rococo church at Rottenbuch not far from the intersection of the road from Wieskirche and the one to Oberammergau. There is another pretty church at Steingaden near the intersection of the road from Fussen and the road to Wieskirche.
