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.
Wonderful Hotel in Fussen
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.
The hotel location was not in city center, so there were not many shops or restaraunts within walking distance. However, the area was quiet and downtown was just a short drive.
I was unable to find pictures of the hotel/rooms on-line, so we were hoping the reviews were accurate. For this reason, I've attached photos (sorry I did not take pictures of the inside).
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!
Visit Herr Rupert
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.
Kurt Rupert is the owner. Some of the other reviews made mention of Christine but she died recently so Kurt is on his own. He is the chef so the breakfasts are still wonderful. Really, you couldn't get a much more elaborate presentation anywhere. It was so special and Kurt was such a wonderful host, sharing maps, brochures and tips.
We loved it so much that we changed our entire itinerary in order to stay an extra day. This made it necessary for us to leave very early in the morning in order to meet the drop-off time for our rental car. Kurt woke up early with us and prepared another wonderful breakfast.
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.
Comfortable and convenient with great hosts
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.
While there I began to have a sinus infection and needed to see a doctor to avoid a major problem. Christine swung into action, first understanding my problem and what I wanted, then calling her personal doctor and setting up the appointment (even giving me the option for a house call!!!), then her brother escorted us to the doctor's office and made sure we were able to see the doctor promptly even though we weren't regular patients. Even the experience with German health care was fantastic...being able to see a doctor with only 30 minutes notice, having a good examination and diagnosis and treatment plan in another 15 minutes, then getting the prescription filled in another 10 minutes. Instead of having a minor vacation crisis it turned out to only be a minor inconvenience of an hour or so.
I can't say enough good things about these folks and their hotel. Everything was first class! Even without the medical assistance I still would give them an excellent review and would love to stay there again.
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.
A Must for a Good Night's Sleep!
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.

... were incredibly lavish and luxurious, with grandeur on a scale I've never seen before. We then properly surveyed the castle from the outside. It had stopped snowing and the sky had turned a blotchy pink/purple/grey colour with patches of blue trying to fight through. The walking trail to the closest lookout had been closed and gated shut due to the heavy snowfall, but we like scores of other tourists skirted the ...
... I made it for our first leg of about 20mins before crisis struck and I had to get off to venture above ground immediately. There was still nearly an hour to go to get to Heathrow. Thankfully the stop I chose, South Kensington, was a very familiar one and I knew once I got to street level exactly where the public amenities were along with Starbucks and Pret. Adriana, Maria, and Isil stayed on the train and continued ...
Garmisch Few train trips now and that is main reason for such little posting. Today we are in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Southern Alps. It is not too far from Munich and we can do an about trip in a day. This year the snow is light compared to previous visits. Yesterday I got to do my long awaited visit to the German Museum in Munich, last trip I was hamstrung by females who do not see the merit ...
... started. We were starting to regret not getting snow chains, but most of the roads were ploughed anyway.
So once we arrived and parked and paid for parking we walked and found the ticket booth. The next tour of the castle was in almost 2 hours and so we decided to just go up and see the castle and then continue our drive. There are usually busses taking people most of the way up the mountain to see the ...
... it was morning tea time and handed out the muffins from this mornings breakfast buffet- a brawl erupted over which one belonged to who.
Not so 'Romantic' with 5 kids in tow!
We saw snow on the ground for the first time this holiday & were surrounded by snow capped alps.
We were very aware that this was our last full day in Germany. We have loved our time here. Dan said it is his favourite (I think it gets bonus points for the food).
We stop by ...
