... the train station. Train 1 took us from Venice to Venora about 1hr. Train 2 took us from Venora (Italy) to Innsbruck (Austria) about 2 1/2 hrs. Arrived at beautiful hotel and Cameron is watching kids cartoons in German. It doesn't appear to matter that he can't understand what they are saying. We are having a quick rest before heading up the mountain on a ski lift. I'll tell you later what it was ...

Picked up the hire car in Munich. Drove in the rain to Neuschwanstein castle. We arrived at 3pm and next available tour was at 5pm. So had a walk around in the rain and decided to give the tour a miss. Drove to our hotel in Klause near Reutte in ...

... tacky Austrian yodelling and dancing nights where they pack as many people they can into a hall, give you two drinks and show some traditional tyrolian dancing, music and singing. They finished by singing some song for each of the countries represented there. I reckon you would need more than two drinks to enjoy the show. Tomorrow we head to St Mortitz through the Engadine Valley. Shops aren't usually open on Sundays but hopefully that won't be the ...

... so smooth and I had an absolute blast!! We landed smoothly and instantly high fived and took a picture! Now my dad said not to believe this, BUT, Jaime said I was a natural because he didn't have to explain in depth how to control the chute or how to fly. Normally, I wouldn't believe it either but he gave me a reference to a paragliding school in the USA. Paragliding is amazing. Granted, it is dangerous but life is short and might as well see what the ...

... that’s why he was declared insane and unfit to rule.

The castle made its way into the recent spotlight with the movie The Monuments Men, which tells the true story of the Nazis using the castle to hide all of the stolen art. At the end of the war, the Americans recovered the art and redistributed it.

    Very friendly staff. Nicely appointed in a quiet location atop a hill near the Riessersee (Riesser Lake). It has a spa and indoor pool, a nice bar with a beautiful fireplace which is always going in winter. The pool is glassed in and heated with a jacuzzi and lovely paintings on the war. The bedrooms all have bathrobes, slippers and all the other amenities you would expect to find in a resort.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riessersee Hotel Resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    Great hotel with ski lodge theme, breathtaking views

    from

    We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. A very warm interior design (light wood log cabin feel), friendly staff, and excellent food/rooms. The hotel offers many spa services, which we didn't take advantage of. The pool is very nice - warm with grand murals painted on the walls that rival some of the castles in the area. We found it very odd how much smoking occurs at this hotel, especially with its emphasis on healthy spa activites. There are cigarette dispensers prominently displayed in the lobby, and there were ashtrays in our non-smoking room.

    Nice

    from

    This hotel is nice. The rooms are spacious. The lobby has a warm, log cabin type feel. The staff were all very friendly. The food, although pricey, was good. It is up on the hillside overlooking Garmisch. We had a car so it was easy for us but without one, I don't know if it would be that convenient. We used it as a base for exploring the area. It has spa facilities too. It's only about 15 minutes from the Zugspitze railway station. I imagine that if you were in the area for skiing, this would be the place to be.

    Service is superb, location is off the beaten path.

    from

    Awesome service from the moment we walked in the door. Even though it was July, we had a cold day and there was nothing like walking in the lobby to see a real fire in the fireplace. We enjoyed the hotel restaurant at breakfast and for dinner. We also enjoyed eating at the Cafe Riessersee (located next to the hotel) very much with it's fantastic view of the mountains and the lake. The restaurant actually catches the trout right there in the lake so my husband tried the trout for lunch and was in heaven.

    Nice stay

    from

    I was pleased with my stay here. Room was nice, clean, spacious, and well-kept. We had a junior suite, which has a sleeping loft over a sitting area, with a balcony. Granite-trimmed bathroom and fluffy bathrobes. Breakfast was a good but fairly standard buffet, served in a glassed-in sunroom that is comfortable and inviting even on a cold morning. Pool is better than average. I didn't avail of the spa services, though.

    A real gem in a superb location

    from

    We used Trip Advisor to find this hotel, and we were not disappointed. We stayed in early December before the ski season proper, as we were interested in walking and sightseeing. The hotel was quiet and perfect for a get-away weekend break. They are re-decorating at the moment but the pool was open, the log fire was roaring and the loft rooms are a delight. Me, my Wife and my 13 year old Daughter stayed for EUR96.00 per night inc. breakfast. We could walk in the mountains direct from the hotel. The serenity around its own private lake (Riessersee) has to be sampled to be believed. My Daughter loved the Playstations & X-boxes in the area attached to the bar. I bet that large screen TV is a crowd puller on ski competion days.

    Let's keep it a secret!

    from

    Stayed a week at this hotel and loved every minute. Great view from our room - overlooking the "lake" and with the alps in view. Staff was very nice and service was lovely. The little restaurant across the way at the lake is terrific - try the smoked trout! Would stay here again.

    Good-bye, jet lag!

    from

    This hotel, a real gem just outside Garmisch proper, is our jet lag recovery site. The rooms are great, the food and service perfect and the breakfast ample. However, the location is the real selling point. Part way up a mountain, it is quiet for the extra hours of sleep needed to recover from the flight from LAX to MUC, and scenery to die for when the urge to stroll returns. The Riessersee is a small, idyllic Alpine lake, with a walking path all around, and the gasthaus at the end of the lake is a perfect place for lunch, dinner or coffee during the day. From the front of the hotel, enjoy the view towards Garmisch from on high, with the sound of a mountain stream rushing by. Like it? Love it!

    One of Garmisch's best kept secrets!!!!

    from

    The Renaissance Hotel Riessersee has a subtle elegance and charm that go beyond what most tourist hotels claim to have. For total comfort, excellent service, outstanding meals and incredible alpine atmosphere, I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Garmisch. The staff and management are to be commended for providing top quality care. This is a fabulous hotel.

    Now by sharing 'the best kept secret' it's not so secret anymore. Pass it on!
