|Location of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen market in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district|
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a market and at the same time the main town of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district and the center of the Werdenfelser Land . Although Garmisch-Partenkirchen has a population of over 27,000, it is not a city , but one of 13 so-called efficient municipalities belonging to the district and a regional center in Bavaria. It is the only municipality in Germany that is the administrative seat of a district without being a city itself.
The place is also a climatic health resort .
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is located in the middle of a wide basin at the confluence of the Loisach, coming from Tyrol, and the Partnach , which rises in the Wetterstein Mountains , between the Ammer Mountains in the northwest, Ester Mountains in the east and the Wetterstein Mountains - with Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze, in the southwest. Garmisch was during the last ice age - the Würme Ice Age - with an ice cover of approx. covered.

The original parish village of Partenkirchen is east of the Partnach, while the center of Garmisch is west of the river. Even today, the river is still the border between the Garmisch and Partenkirchen districts in the northern part (from around Obermühle) . In the southern part, the district boundary runs 600 to 1700 meters west of the river.
Until the 18th century
Partenkirchen goes back to the Roman travel station "Partanum". This was on a pre-Roman trade route, a side branch of the Via Claudia running along the Lech , which was built after Drusus and Tiberius had conquered the northern Alpine and foothills of the Alps in 15 BC. Was expanded. The Romans called the new street “ Via Raetia ”, it was built in 200 AD and led over the Brenner Pass and Seefelder Sattel to Augsburg . The oldest surviving document that mentions Garmisch as a settlement bears the date 802.
The Freising Bishop Konrad I. von Tölz and Hohenburg acquired Garmisch in 1249 and Bishop Emicho in 1294 Partenkirchen. From 1294 the county of Werdenfels belongs to the Hochstift Freising and remained in spiritual possession until the secularization in 1802/03.
In the High Middle Ages , Partenkirchen was an important stop on the way to Italy for the Fuggers and Welsers . This resulted in an economic upswing; the place flourished as a travel and trading station between Augsburg and Venice . For Garmisch, rafting on the Loisach was the main source of income. The region became impoverished with the Thirty Years' War .
19th and 20th centuries
In 1802 the County of Werdenfels became part of Bavaria. Garmisch and Partenkirchen received their self-administration rights again with the Bavarian municipal edict in 1818 and remained two competing market communities until the 20th century . After the completion of the railway connection to Munich in 1889, tourism began. The Bavarian Zugspitzbahn was built in three sections between 1928 and 1930. On January 1, 1935, the market towns of Garmisch and Partenkirchen merged to form the Garmisch-Partenkirchen market under massive pressure from the NSDAP due to the IV Winter Olympics (1936) taking place in the following year . With participants from 28 countries, the 1936 Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen set a new record. After the cancellation of Sapporo and St. Moritz , the 5th Winter Olympic Games (1940) were also supposed to take place in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, but were canceled because of the Second World War.
On September 25, 1935, the time as a garrison of the Wehrmacht began with the groundbreaking for the Jäger barracks and later the artillery barracks . From 1960 to 1994 the 1st Mountain Division (Bundeswehr) was led from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In 1963 the Garmisch-Partenkirchen Mountain Music Corps was stationed here.
After 1945, the recreational facilities of the US Army (later Armed Forces Recreation Center ) were used by numerous units on site. It was u. a. in autumn 1948 the increase in the number of female spa guests was reduced by an estimated 2,500. In 1954 Garmisch-Partenkirchen became the venue for the traditional Arlberg-Kandahar races .
In 1978 the first Alpine World Ski Championships took place in Bavaria; The venue was Garmisch-Partenkirchen from January 28 to February 5, 1978. The place also hosted the 2011 Alpine World Ski Championships . Together with Munich and Schönau am Königssee , Garmisch-Partenkirchen applied unsuccessfully for the 2018 Winter Olympics .
Eleven people died in an explosion caused by a defective liquefied gas line on December 27, 1986 in the Sporthotel Rießersee.

Between 1988 and 2018 the market grew from 25,908 to 27,194 by 1,286 inhabitants or 5%.
|Number of inhabitants||2,870||3,038||4,792||10,326||18.308||25,435||25,261||26,885||25,742||27.094||26,946||26,364||26,261||26,068||26,821|
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is one of the traditional strongholds of the CSU. This is particularly evident in state and federal elections, in which it sometimes achieved over 70% of the vote. In local politics, the distribution of political power in the first post-war decades was significantly more even. The SPD provided Georg Schütte and Philipp Schumpp as the first mayor for a total of 20 years until 1978. The Bavarian party was initially strongly represented in the Garmisch-Partenkirchner municipal council and was able to provide the 2nd mayor at times. After the fall of the Bavarian party, the CSU was able to assert itself as the most important party at the local level. Since 1972 it has had an absolute majority in the municipal council and has been the first mayor since 1978.
In the local elections on March 2, 2008 , the absolute majority of the CSU was broken for the first time in 36 years. The Christian Social Alliance (CSB), which split from the CSU in 2007, became the strongest political force. In the term of office from 2008 to 2014, the CSB provided the majority in the municipal council with the free voters and the 2nd and 3rd mayors with Daniela Bittner (CSB) and Hannes Krätz (FW).
In the local elections on March 16, 2014 , the CSB and the Free Voters together only achieved ten out of 30 seats and thus lost the majority in the municipal council. 2nd Mayor was Wolfgang Bauer (CSU); he holds the office full-time and held it from 2002 to 2008. The office of the 3rd mayor was not filled for 2014-2020.

coat of arms
|Blazon : “Split by silver and red; at the front of the gap a half, red armed black eagle, behind a silver bar. "|
When the municipalities were amalgamated in 1935, the municipality gave itself a coat of arms that did not follow either of the two coats of arms of the previous municipalities. It was decided to quote the coat of arms of the Counts of Eschenlohe, which is also used by the communities of Eschenlohe and Telfs . This followed the refuted assumption that the Counts of Eschenlohe were lords of the county of Werdenfels , which contained today's municipality. In fact, the county of Werdenfels is historically younger than it was then, so that the Eschenloher were never its owners. On December 3, 1935, the coat of arms was approved with the following description: The coat of arms consists of a split shield, on the right a half black double-headed eagle reinforced in red, on the left a silver crossbar in a red field.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen has three twin cities :

- France : Since 1973 there has been a partnership with Chamonix in France and
- Finland : since 1987 with the Finnish city of Lahti .

Economy and Infrastructure
The economic structure of the municipality is mainly shaped by tourism. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is also a popular retirement home, which on the one hand brings purchasing power to the city, but is also associated with problems such as above-average demand for care services.
From the inheritance of the couple Günther and Ingeborg Leifheit , the city received 50 million euros as endowment assets with the condition that they be used for old residents and residents in need of care. The municipality plans to set up an academy for nursing professions with a link to a university. Caritas and the Rummelsberger Diakonie are under discussion as sponsors .
The George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies is located in the Sheridan Barracks and the Artillery Barracks.
From the north Garmisch-Partenkirchen can be reached from Landsberg am Lech and Oberammergau via the B 23 and from Munich via the B 2 . The B 2 also takes on the A 95 traffic from Munich about 15 km north of Eschenlohe . To the west, the B 23 continues through the Loisach valley to Austria , turns into Ehrwalder Strasse and meets the Fernpassstrasse at Lermoos , which connects the Oberinntal with Reutte and Füssen via the Fernpass . The B 2 continues east towards Mittenwald , Seefeld and Innsbruck .
The location on these important road connections results in considerable traffic loads for the market. On nice days, through traffic and excursion traffic often lead to long traffic jams in the town center. That a trip z. B. takes up to an hour from the Farchanter Tunnel to the Kreuzeck / Alpspitze ski area , is not uncommon. That is why there were repeated calls to advance the planning for the Kramer Tunnel and the Wanktunnel . On July 27, 2010, Prime Minister Horst Seehofer and the Parliamentary State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Transport, Andreas Scheuer, took part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the Garmisch-Partenkirchen bypass with the Kramer tunnel. The new federal highway 23 with the 3.6 kilometer long Kramer tunnel should reduce the traffic load of Garmisch by at least half. The planned bypass is one of the most expensive road construction measures in Bavaria and, according to forecasts from 2010, should cost more than 133 million euros. To date (2013), however, the calculated costs have risen to 176 million euros.
After further delays and a supplementary planning approval procedure, the renewed construction approval was granted on September 19, 2017. The contract for the further construction of the tunnel was awarded on July 29, 2019. Tunneling began in early 2020. The costs calculated to date have risen to 263.6 million euros.
The Garmisch-Partenkirchen Station is located on the Munich-Garmisch-Partenkirchen railway and the Mittenwaldbahn (Garmisch-Mittenwald-Innsbruck). It is also the starting point of the Ausserfernbahn to Reutte in Tyrol and Kempten (Allgäu) and the Bavarian Zugspitzbahn . Regional trains run every hour to Munich and Mittenwald and every two hours to Innsbruck and Reutte with connections to Kempten. In addition, there are also individual long-distance trains specially tailored to holidaymakers, for example ICEs to Berlin , Hamburg , Dortmund , Bremen and Innsbruck.
The Garmisch-Partenkirchen municipal works operate a local bus network with lines 1 to 5, the “green bus”. In addition, a numberless regional bus line operated by the Eibsee Transport Company (EVG) runs from Partenkirchen via Garmisch to the Eibsee, known as the “white-blue bus”. Within the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district, there is a tariff cooperation between local and regional buses within the framework of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen transport association .
