This was our 2nd stop of our Bavarian side trip from Munich, and by now we had learned to leave the ginormous key at the front desk!
The hotel is centrally located, about a 10 minute walk from the train station, and close to the river. We were greeted in English and escorted to our room which was quite large with a lovely balcony & view. Our double room was actually 2 twins shoved together, which seems to be very common for Europe. It was clean and comfortable and we had an excellent sleep. The bathroom was also very nice and clean.
Breakfast was assorted breads, fruits and pastries, and you could add a cooked breakfast if you desired. Our hostess was quite friendly, as was the rest of the staff. They were very helpful with any questions we had about sight seeing.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Garmisch.

When we finished gorging ourselves, we made our ...
... and focus on the arts. What Ludwig could do very well was dream of castles fashioned in the Medieval style, decide to build them and then spent A LOT of Bavaria's money building them. He dreamt of building three castles during his 22 year reign, and managed to get Linderhof build (did not visit), Neushwanstein built but not finished and one other not even started!
We took the second earliest time and started with Hohenschwangau, which was King ...
... Catholic. It houses the largest copper mine in the world. There is enough salt in the mountains surrounding Innsbruck to last 200 years but is too expensive to do so. Enough said & onto our morning tour. On arrival to the winter ski run we were taken up a funicular cable car & then a lift up to the highest point for a demanding view of the city. And the sun decided to make an appearance which stayed ...
... the castle. From Neuschwanstein, you could also see King's Ludwig's fathers castle on the opposite hill. In an effort to outdo his father, King Ludwig built a larger castle on a larger hill with the view of a larger lake, and that castle become Neuschwanstein Castle. However, King Ludwig did not stop there. Instead of one castle, he wanted 5. Before King Ludwig's death, only 3 of the 5 castles were built and even ...
... since they are so massive and gorgeous so we had a very scenic train ride in from Budapest as well as on our way out to Zurich and we hired a guide to drive us over the Alps into Fussen, Germany to check out some castles. (See the next entry for castle ...
