Located in a narrow mountain valley of the Western Alpine foothills, Ettal is very easy to reach by car.
On the way from Innsbruck (Austria) to Munchen (Germany), after the stop in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, we took the beautiful local road and finished in Ettal, just a few km away from the beautiful Olympic City that will host the Alpine Ski World Championship in 2009.

I had been there several times. Avoid to go there during peak season, especially when there are vacation in Germany and during times around 11 am to 3 pm. Bus loads of tourists, especially batallions of camera loaded and flag waving Japanese groups are lining up. Ideal time to go there I personally find best early in the morning before 9 or late in the afternoon to join the first or the last guided tours

Ettal is a nice alpine village with some nice houses. Everything looks so well-cared and all the houses in a very good condition. The landmark of the village is the monastery with its great church and dome, which can be seen for far already.
If you are interested in the church, please have a look on my "must-see activity"-tips ...
It seems that tourism plays the main role in the economy. There are a lot of hotels and restaurants here.
