Travel Blogs from Füssen
Today, Charly, Paul, Mirium, Rocio and I went to the one and only Neuschwanstein.
Mirium and Rocio are Charlys friends from Spain who accompanied us to Oktoberfest yesterday. They are very lovely and funny.
Charly took the day off work which was nice, she had heaps of overtime and drove us to Hohenschwangau which is by the mountains and close to the Austrian border.
We then bought tickets to explore ...
I've spent the last couple of days walking around Kaufbueren. Alex and his cousin Yula and myself have been going to the city center most everyday. Not to sound arrogant but I'm a little surprised at how few people here speak English. I was under the impression it was pretty common but it must be more centered around bigger cities. Most people here are pretty patient and I've gotten by pretty well so far. Traffic actually stops ...
Rained all day but wandered around old city constructed abutting a huge cliff into which has been dug the massive car park. The beautiful quadrangles spoilt by stalls being erected for impending market? Introduced to Salzburger Nockerl, beaten egg whites/meringue over hot ...
Leaving Austria behind and heading for Bavarian Germany, we got to the town of Fussen. This is where the cheesily named 'Romantic Road' or Romantische Strasse starts, A pretty trip through typical German countryside and pretty villages and towns. We gawped at the massive Schloss (castles) along the route and stopped for the night in Harburg, a pretty village where we got to walk around ...
... When we got to Füssen, which is the town that is closest to the castle, we decided that it would really make the experience awesome to take a horse drawn carriage up to the castle instead of walking. This idea was really more awesome in theory than in actual execution... The carriage was pretty big and had a lot of people squished into it and the poor horses were struggling on the uphill path the whole way with the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Christine Füssen
Come For The Meticulous Breakfast
This is a decent option in Fussen. I decided to book here based on the strong review on Frommers[--]. I would advise those who are traveling to Fussen by train to stay near the train station as the Hotel Christine is not within walking distance. I drove down from Munich for a night and the hotel was very easy to find (there are street signs directing you from the main street). My room was clean with a nice balcony. The bathroom was a bit small although still acceptable. Breakfast in the morning was really the highlight of my stay here. As I entered the dining room the friendly owner of the hotel lead me to a table that was meticulously laid out with breads, juices, coffee, meats and cheese. It truly was a thing of beauty and quite delicious.
While visiting Oktoberfest my wife and I planned to visit Fussen in order to get away from the crowds. Fortunatly, we had read many great reviews on the Hotel Christine. If you plan on visiting Fussen this hotel is a "must". Upon arrival, the host greeted us with a toast and helped us to our room. We stayed in the suite on the top floor, which had a good view of the Neuschwanstein castle. The room was very large with a nice bathroom and french doors (2 sets) leading to a private deck overlooking the castle. The suite is worth the extra euros. The room and the hotel were clean and updated. The host was wonderful and breakfast was worthy of a picture. This was the best room during our stay in Germany.
A Wonderful Place and Genial Host
This wonderful place sits in a quiet residential district with beautiful views of the mountains, wonderful breakfasts and the excellent host, Herr Ruppert. Upon our arrival to his hotel during the afternoon, he asked us if we had yet eaten and then proceeded to drive down to the store to pick up food and prepared us a delicious lunch of sandwiches. The breakfasts were always freshly prepared and delicious.
The rooms and bathrooms are spacious with a full size bathtub that I could stretch out in and I am 6 foot long! Everything was clean and immaculate. Definitely we will stay here again!
We found Christine's quite by accident as we arrived in Fussen after the tourist office had closed. It is a lovely hotel - very clean with nice furniture and a great view of the mountains.
Unparalleled Comfort and Accomodations
We almost missed this one. On our trip down the Romantic Road in October 2004 we scheduled a stop in Fussen at the last minute. We are so thankful we did. We read abouth Hotel Christine in Frommer's and debated staying at the hotel considering the short distance from the central part of the city. If we would have missed this hotel, it would have been a mistake.
The rooms were beautiful and clean. However, the staff was exceptional. They were so helpful and even provided us a wine cork and glasses to toast the evening. The breakfast was superb and beautifully presented! This was the most memorable stay on our 2 week trip throughout Germany. Thank you.
We stayed in the Hotel Christine in Fall 2004 and had a wonderful experience. I can echo the other reviews in this site...the hotel is comfortable with modern conveniences (this is NOT a rustic alpine lodge but rather open and airy), the breakfasts are one-of-a-kind experiences (I only wish we had taken a photograph of the breakfast setting!), the location is close to the action but far enough away for peace and quiet, and Christine and her brother are excellent hosts.
i have been going to this place since i was 12, and everytime i look forward to it. the hotel christine is small, but don't count it out for because of its size. the rooms are actually large and quite accomidating. i would recommend that anyone staying at the hotel christine request one of the rooms with a balcony facing the castle neushcwanstein.
If you are searching for a beautiful place to spend a wonderful week in Fussen...this hotel must be your choice. The atmosphere is friendly and the chef is a superstar making his wonderful breakfasts.
Prices are cheap, rooms are clean and english spoken by Christine is good.

Nice place to stay!
We checked in on 9/11/2001 -- a day all Americans will never forget. It was 4 p.m. there and the nice lady at the desk informed us of the tragedy that was unfolding in New York. She promptly told us the channel (#5) for CNN in English. Nice, clean and wonderful breakfast the next day.
Having been to this Hotel 2 times...the first when it newly opened in May of 1974 and the second time in July 2,000, I can say that the charm is still present. Christine runs the hotel and her brother is the chef and what a cook! The breakfast was wonderful. The inn is quiet as it's on a neighborhood street not too far from the Schloss (Castle) but far enough to enjoy the view and quiet of this precious town. There's a newly remodled suite on the third floor. You might ask to see this if staying here. It's beautiful. Christine sat down with our family upon arriving and served us refreshment and local town talk. You will find that the charm of the place rests in this lady whose english is good and will lend an ear to her guests any time. We plan on visiting Fussen in 2003 with a church choir and hope to stay at this fine hotel.
