We are going to be in the Garmisch area over Xmas this year (planning 12/21-12/26 or 27). We put in to stay at the military resort (Edelweiss) but didn't get a room in the lottery so now I am looking for an apartment. Of course, it's a bit late in the game for this for the Xmas holiday!
Anyhow, I have a few options for my group. It will be my family (2 adults, 2 young children under 5) and my in-laws (very early 60's, lots of energy!). We have some options in G-P and some in Grainau. They both seem to be very close to each other and we will have a car. At that time of the year would it be better to be IN G-P? Or will it not matter if we stay in Grainau? We plan to do plenty of sightseeing, maybe a day of skiing, but we also like to stroll the streets. Any info you can give me would be great! The setup of the places I've found in G-P are not as ideal for our group as in Grainau, but if it is that much of an advantage I will take a place in G-P if it's closer to the action. Thanks so much!
