Ehrwald Mountain Rescue

We decided to change our base to the other side of the Zugspitze and on the Austrian side of the Alps. This was mainly because torrential rain was beginning to flood our tent-pitch at Garmisch-Partenkirschen and we needed somewhere with four solid walls to dry out.

We found a small apartment in the town of Ehrwald, which had some spectacular views from the balcony. We were rather surprised though when the Police and ambulance services started taking over the field next to us, and even more so when a rescue helicopter flew in two people who had clearly been plucked from difficulties in the mountains and brought to safety.

We were off up the Zugspitze itself tomorrow, so we were hoping this wouldn't be a rescue that we needed!
