Deutsch: Garmisch-Partenkirchen ist ein Markt und zugleich Kreishauptort des Landkreises Garmisch-Partenkirchen, sowie Zentrum des Werdenfelser Landes. Trotz seiner Einwohnerzahl von mehr als 26.000 Einwohnern ist Garmisch-Partenkirchen keine Stadt.
English: Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a market town, and the administrative centre of the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It is located at , in the Oberbayern region of Bavaria, Germany, near the border with Austria. The 1100-year-old towns themselves (Partenkirchen's roots go back to Roman times) were separate communities until the mayors of Garmisch and Partenkirchen were forced by Adolf Hitler to combine the two in 1935 in anticipation of the 1936 Winter Olympic games. The towns remain united and are casually known as "Garmisch" much to the dismay of the residents of Partenkirchen. Most visitors will notice the slightly more modern feel of Garmisch while the fresco-filled, cobblestoned streets of Partenkirchen offer a glimpse into times past.
