Bring a couple of souvenirs or presents for the family and friends from your holiday. New places let you discover shops and boutiques you had never been to, or buy regional products in local markets.
A shopping day is a good alternative in bad weather, you can combine it with sightseeing as well.

The pedestrian area in Garmisch offers a choice to any liking. Clothes, outdoor, jewelry, photography - here is the right address if your suitcase still has place for a couple of souvenirs. Many shops belong to international labels, like H&M, Jack Wolfskin, Gerry Weber, Rituals, Depot, etc.
The pedestrian area in Murnau is perfect for strolling. This small but extremely lovely shopping mile allures you with its tiny boutiques, but also a couple of bigger fashion stores of international labels as well.
The Bavarian capital has a lot to offer, so it makes sense to spend your whole day here, as you would definitely want to visit different quarters and do some shopping in the city centre. You can reach Munich by train as well.
Kempten is still a well-kept secret for shopping lovers. This lovely Bavarian town is only an hour drive from Grainau. It offers a nice shopping mile and a shopping mall in the historic quarter. The advantage: unlike Munich or Innsbruck, here you can still do your shopping without hustle and bustle.
The Austrian metropolis is only one hour drive from Grainau and can be reached by train as well. The pretty downtown with its world famous Golden Roof invites you to a shopping round along with the numerous shopping malls.
