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.

The effect of this white, fairy-tale castle with its beautiful location is simply amazing. Unfortunately, the man who dedicated his life and a fortune on the project, Ludwig II, never got the see the castle completed, as he died in 188 So, who was this man, who had such a masterpiece of a castle constructed and what were his motives? The story behind Ludwig II is
almost as intriguing and romanticized as the castle itself.
... had thought that a horse fly or wasp had landed on Chris back. Sarah and Leanne tried to get it off and Chris reached around to swat it off. Well it wasn't a wasp or fly but a bee and Chris took a stinger right in the arm. He is such a trooper just looked down, pulled the stinger out and carried on. His arm puffed up a bit but luckily he is not allergic so no issues. Then it was on to the tour. We had a great tour guide and she was really nice pointing out ...
... is something special. Once back down, we caught our train to the base of the Zugspitze at Eibsee. We made our way from the train to the Eibsee-Seilbahn cable car station. It quickly became apparent why this was such an in demand attraction. The cable rises almost vertically for near 3km up a cliff face! Very impressive and you could barely make out the car on the cable with the naked eye. The only issue being that there were only two cables and ...
... did want to get some photos of the castle from the nearby suspension bridge that offers the best views. This castle is famous as it was the inspiration form Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty's castle. The castle receives 1.3 million visitors a year and in peak summer days, over 6000 visitors, and were they all here today or what? The walk up the steep climb took around 20 minutes, and in the midday sun and 33 degrees, some of us were a bit grumpy, not to mention ...
