Great resort hotel in Garmisch, just by the beautiful Riessersee lake.The Maisonette room is just nice. Great food with great view. Very helpful and and friendly staff. Nice pool and spa. May be a bit difficult to find coffee in the afternoon. Other than that, a perfect place to visit the top of Germany!

I enjoyed this hotel, the facilities are wonderful and the location is beautiful, above Garmisch on the small lake, the Riessersee (hence the name.) The location is actually at the end of the bobsled run from the 1936 Winter Olympics, a historic bobsled track that has a great deal of history. It was very interesting to trace the track and...

This Hotel has an amazing location as you can see from the photo. Dining outside overlooks the Riessersee and often there are 'activities' also going on on the See. A walk round the See before or after a meal is really fantastic - I haven't swum in it as yet but have been going to Garmisch-Partenkirchen for the past 22...
