Germany Garmisch Partenkirchen Schnitzel

5 June 2016

Shut

The quiet streets of Garmisch-Partenkirchen

I warned this would be a small update.
All I wanted to do was find dinner, but this is rural Germany, church bells are ringing and almost everything is shut.
Presumably the few places that are open are Heathens who might get burnt at the stake as a witch.
Anyway, the Chinese buffet was open, that might have been a better choice, it was full of brightly colored food in huge tubs, and the place was full of the tour group I saw on top of the mountain earlier.
There were a couple of shops selling ice cream made with alcohol, that might have been a better choice.
Mcdonalds was open - that would have actually been a good choice!
Finally I found an Italian place that was open to serve meals (a few pubs WERE open, but no food on offer).
I wanted a risotto, sorry no rice. Then I tried pasta, sorry no pasta left...So I asked what do you have? Schnitzel, Pork knuckle. Bugger. Schnitzel please.

I then returned home to my small hotel, the front door was locked, I tried it twice to make sure.
An old man comes storming over and opens it, 'DIDNT THE GIRL TELL YOU TO USE YOUR KEY?' To which I responded probably, but I must have forgotten, sorry.
He then literally told me, do not forget again! And stormed off.

Germany-Garmisch Partenkirchen-Schnitzel - Nothing happening in town. The few people out are all doing what I am doing, wondering why everything is shut.

Germany-Garmisch Partenkirchen-Schnitzel - My hotel features angry old Germans and strangely, a segway to take you into town. Tomorrow I go to Innsbruck, in Austria. Maybe I will go by segway?
