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.

We have 5 different trains between 0700 and 1500, a few have 4 minutes between switching trains (ie finding the train, platform number etc). Wish us luck that we don't miss any ...
We are in the hills of the Alps and enduring the last of the heat wave. Today's high of 97 feels like 107. Good news, a storm comes in tonight dropping tomorrow's high to 68, a 29 degree drop, with some rain showers. So we found our hostel, the third floor of a cute Swiss chalet, but no AC. What is with these people? Of course tomorrow we won't need ...
... across the lane from the famous Golden Roof. Thanks again to Wikipedia:
“The Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) is a landmark structure located in the Old Town section of Innsbruck, Austria. It is considered the city's most famous symbol. Completed in 1500, the roof was decorated with 2,738 fire-gilded copper tiles for Emperor Maximilian I to mark his wedding to Bianca Maria Sforza. The Emperor and his wife ...
... being to ascend the mountain overlooking Innsbruck via cable car. 6540 feet later and we were presented with another unbelievable view not only of the city but in every direction. We even walked a little further up to a small monument about 500 odd metres from where we had alighted the cable car. The Hill was steep and the air thinner than normal so we were a bit breathless upon arrival at the monument. A multitude of photos were taken as well as some ...

We left Italy on Friday and travelled across the Brenner Pass in to Austria. Leutasch is just north of Innsbruck and not far from the German border. Leutasch is beautiful. It is a valley at about 1000 metres altitude with pretty little villages dotted between meadows. Towering ...
