We arrived in Garmisch-Partenkirchen around 5 in the afternoon, only being
rerouted on our GPS a couple of times.
The Gasthof Fraundorfer is halfway up a quaint cobblestone
lane and overlooks the majestic Tyrolean alps. And by majestic, I mean the sort
of landscape that causes …
Our next train journey took us to the town of Garmisch Partenkirchen. Well, it's now officially one town, but originally it was two separate ones, Garmisch and Partenkirchen. However, when Hitler made his bid to get the Olympic games in 1936 he needed a larger city than Garmisch in order to win over officials due to the lack of accommodation. What …
... the animals it features are all mountain dwellers, the walk from one exhibit to the next was fairly steep. By way of comparison, imagine the slope being approximately the same as walking up Stone Mountain (for you Georgians). We then took the rail back to the gondola. The gondola to the top is broken into two separate gondolas. The mountain is slightly more than 10 times Stone Mountain. As you can see from the pictures, the ...
After the castle we drove to Innsbruck. Innsbruck is in Austria, so we are on our second country. Really beautiful area with great views. Our hotel is in the historic part of town. It has been a hotel since 1390 and folks such as Mozart and Sartre stayed here. We are directly across a pedestrian street from the Goldener Dachl, which is basically a fancy golden roof that some rich merchant created to impress a ...
... between two spectacular mountain ranges. It has a very quaint old town (Alstadt). We took the funicular up the mountain for an amazing view. The funicular was designed by an Iraqi architect (Zaha Hadrd) – extremely futuristic and very funky. The Olympic ski jump on the otherside side of town also designed by her is equally ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsGasthof Fraundorfer Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Barbara, the hostess of the Gasthof Fraundorfer, is delightful, funny, and an amazing breakfast cook.
We were very well taken care of at the Gasthof. The bed was comfortable, the accommodation private and clean, and the location spectacular.

Historical Traveler Reviews Gasthof Fraundorfer Garmisch-Partenkirchen
The Ultimate Vacation Getaway
The Fraundorfer is the perfect Gasthof for a Bavarian Alpine getaway. The location is perfect for walking in the city or hiking in the Alps. The accomodatons are relaxing and well maintained. The food and entertainment are second to none. And the view of the Zugspitze from my room's window was magnificent.
If you are looking for an inviting, friendly, and relaxing getaway......Fraundorfers' in Partenkirchen is the PLACE!
An abundance of flowers on the windows, paintings on the buildings, great Bavarian food, a fun atmostphere and great location. Our room in the Barbara House was nice, nothing over the top, but very clean and very quaint. The slap dancing and accordian player were fun to watch and the food was yummy! The staff was very nice and helpful with directions, suggestions for things to do, etc. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
My second home!
I visit the Fraundorfer at least once a year. It really is my second home. The hospitality and freindliness of everybody there is astonoshing. The food is excellent and the accomodation is 'rustic' but wonderfuly authentic and comfortable. The evenings are etraordinary, with authentic entertainment. I can't recommend the place enough.
We stayed at Gasthof Frauendorfer in December and found the accommodations very comfortable. As noted by some of the previous reports, it is not brand new or five star, but it is clean, attractive, and comfortable. The food is excellent and the hosts are exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is not the cheapest place in town, but we would stay here again.
Bavarian Kitsch - and we loved it!
We stayed three nights in October, on the top floor. No sign of an elevator! After we schlepped our bags upstairs, we found a lovely room with a newly renovated bathroom/shower. The furniture featured toll paintings, and we had a lovely view through our tiny window.
The restaraunt is outstanding, food and service very authentic and good. We would stay here again.
Restaurant fabulous, hotel needs some TLC
The restaurant is so good and so much fun, I feel as if I'm carping when I say we were disappointed with our accommodations, but the truth is that the hotel needs some TLC. Carpet going up to the rooms was worn and stained and paint on the stair railings chipped and thick. I'd stay there again, but this time I'd lower my expectations.
This hotel is the best hotel in Garmisch. Even if you just go and eat, you will get the real feel of being in the Bavarian Alps. We loved it and plan to make it a regular stop for us. The food is out of this world. Definitely plan to go hungry. The cheese spatzle and the Chicken Cordon Bleu was my favorite.
Fun restaurant with good food
Great food for a reasonable price. Staff is efficient and friendly. Patronized by both tourists and locals. Accordian player serves up German/Bavarian tunes. Fun place.
Fun and Friendly
A family of 4 we found the "Fraundorfer" to be a very nice clean place to stay. We had a 2 room suite for a very reasonable price. Dinner at the restaurant was thoroughly enjoyable with good and ample food and fun entertainment. We were only there for 2 nights but would go back anytime. There is no lobby or check-in desk. You just present yourself to the people in the restaurant and they will take care of you.
This is a wonderful place to stay. Every room is unique and charming. I recommend a room with a balcony, the views are wonderful. They have a great restaurant with accordion music and slap-dancing on some nights.
It's a good place to mingle with the locals. I would definitely stay here again.
