We stayed at Ginterhof for 2 nights and used it for a home base to see the surrounding castles in Germany, Linderhof (35min drive), Neuschwanstein/Hohenschwangau (25 min drive) as well as Lake Plansee (20 min drive) and the surrounding Tyrol area. Annelies and her family were such gracious hosts and we loved staying there! It was our favorite B&B/hotel for the entire trip! We wish we could have stayed longer! We will for sure stay here next time we are in the area! Highly Recommended!!

More about the B&B and Rooms….
We stayed in the room on the 2nd floor to the left of the stairs at the end of the hall. We had a view of the surrounding mountains and Ehrenburg castle ruins. The room was spotless and everything looked brand new. (The house itself is around 800 years old!) The comforters and pillows were arranged in heart shapes and they had a hand written personal note wishing us a nice stay. They also had a small bottle of local liqueur in the room you could try for free.
The breakfast was the best one we had on the entire trip. They had meats, cheese, 8 different breads, 6 different kinds of yogurt, eggs, tea, coffee, juice, etc. They also had sandwich bags for us to use to make sandwiches for picnic lunches each day! Was so nice!
The house is a working Austrian farm which means that they keep the animals in their basement on the other side of the house (barn side) unless they are out in the pasture. During our stay they had 2 cows, 2 calves, 2 cats and 1 pig, most of which lived in their basement. It was awesome to arrive back at the end of the day and play with the kittens as well as see a cow poke their head out the basement window.
Thanks Annelies for the amazing memories!
