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 took a cable car one third of the way to the top of surrounding mountains. Tried to catch the gondola to the top but ...
... sweet tooth, of course we all kept him company. On our return to Oberstaufen we detoured to the Wieskirche (white church) which is a UNESCO world heritage site. It was built in 1730 ten years after a farmer witnessed a statue oh Christ weeping. Millions of people each year make a pilgrimage to this beautiful and highly decorated Catholic Church. The dome ceiling is painted in pastel tones with murals of Christ's resurrection, the walls are white but with plenty of gilded ...
... going to climb down and come back up again so had to find a cool spot to sit and wait the two hours.
Inside the tour no pics were allowed again. This was another castle not completed by Ludwig. Only the 3rd and 4th floors are complete. The castle is built in a Medieval Byzantine style so has a much different feel from ...
... south towards Linderhof which was our first stop. We arrived 9.30 but as soon as I got off the bus I had sharp pains in my rear knee muscle and could hardly walk. Ouch! I tried massaging as a I had a long day of walking and this was just the start of a two week trip.
Our group had a tour time of ...
