I have looked at Mittenwald on line and it sounds wonderful but gather it is not recommended as a base for a 9/10 day stay if other intertesting places are on the visiting itinerary.I would like to be within reach of Mittenwald and the Bavarian Alps but perhaps a base elsewhere that permits travel by train bus to other places such as Innsbruck,Saltzburg etc. I like old places, not too overdone with tourists and prefer not too large - Munich is too big. I love Austria and Switzerland so probably the Austrian/Germany border in a not too much touristy town but with good comminications - wife loves water (lakes etc ) but perhaps not possible on this trip. Seefield is probably too big and didn't they have the Olympics there? I prefer the unspoilt if possible - suggestions welcome, please.
