One of 35 black and white Lantern Slides depicting images of places and people taken in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district in Bavaria, Germany, circa 1920s. This Lantern Slide depicts the town of Garmisch in winter as seen from the surrounding mountains.

Garmisch is a mountain resort town in Bavaria, southern Germany. In 1935 it was forced to combine with the neighbouring town of Partenkirchen to the east in anticipation of the 1936 Winter Olympic games. Today the joint town is the administrative centre of the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and the two areas within the town still retain quite separate identities.
