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.

(Though note that the town doesn't hesitate to separate you from your money at any opportunity, offering a 5 euro horse and carriage ride up the hill. This is fine for the riders, but rather nasty for us walkers left in the horse's ****-wake) Visiting the castle interiors is is a bit of a forced march, however- visitors are ...
... a lot about society and people, especially the fact that people are more self-absorbed than ever before and go out of their way to avoid connecting with others. What’s wrong with asking someone to take your photo anyway, and you can return the favor? Unfortunately from what I’ve seen here this trend will likely only continue to spread.
Once inside the castle walls it is set up to take tour groups in every 5 minutes according ...
... nevertheless the chagrined doubters reluctantly decided to leave the sign-reading to the German reader/speakers in our group.
Yesterday was devoted to a visit to the smallest of Ludwig's castles, Linderhof near Fussen, where he actually lived about half of the time he was in power, the rest being at the Wittlesbach family palace in Munich, which we described in an earlier entry. Though small in size, Linderhof still managed to consume ...
... thought of ways to spend them in Europe. I decided to find cheap plane tickets to Venice, Italy, before flying to Switzerland for our three week house sit.
The hugs were long and tears were many as we said our goodbyes to Alex, Sabine and the amazing country of Germany, but not without the promise that they would visit us when we were in Costa Rica. Auf Wiedersehen Mein Deutschland!
