0173 Germany - The Werdenfelser Land

The Werdenfelser Land is a region of Upper Bavaria that extends from Mittenwald in the south to Farchant. It includes parts of the Bavarian Alps. The region derives its name from the medieval Werdenfels Castle north of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Today, only ruins remain of the once mighty Castle Werdenfels. The castle acted chiefly to secure the military and trade route that ran through the Loisach valley and linked trading posts in Italy and Upper Bavaria.
