Day 3 - Garmisch-Partenkirken

We woke up this morning just in time for breakfast at 10am. After we ate we hopped in the car and headed for the ski jumps. It was such a great surprise to find out that we could actually walk right up on the jumps. It was particularly special for me because my grandfather had stood on the same spot when he was stationed here in WWII.

After sledding on our bums down the ski jump we drove about 10 miles to Oberammergau, which is known for it's wood carving. We visited quite a few shops before heading back to Garmisch-Partenkirken.

We had an amazing German dinner (including 1L of Hefeweizen!) and then returned to our hotel for a quick swim before bed. What a great birthday!
