We are going to be travelling to the Bavarian Alps in August as part of our honeymoon. We're planning to stay in Mittenwald for 6-7 nights, rent a car and explore the area. We'd like to see the regular spots (castles, etc) but we're interested in seeing what else is available in the area.
We enjoy the outdoors, and hike from time to time. I wouldn't characterize us as avid hikers, but we're good for a few hours in the mountains. A main focus for us is photography, and we'd love to photograph neat Bavarian towns, beautiful mountain ranges, and whatever else catches our fancy.
We're happy to travel a ways from our home base of Mittenwald, but would prefer to keep it to 3 or so hours of travel time each way, if there was something extra special to see.
Thank you in advance for your help!
