We have been to the Hotel Forsthaus in Oberau twice in the past two years and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. It is a lovely place with very nice rooms. The last time we stayed in a family suite and it was really a nice little apartment for a very reasonable price. Breakfast was nice and appreciated every morning. The...

If you are single and have to pay extra for your room, you better not stay here If you are even a little less mobile, don't stay here: No lift and a lot of stairs and no help with your suitcase If you like a quite room, make sure you don't get a room on the road side Positieve things...

We chose this hotel due to its presentation at their own website. There you can see wonderful pictures of the hotel building with snowy mountains in the background! Our impression was that the hotel was situated in a calm area. But unfortunately the pictures don't give a correct description. My enclosed picture, taken by me, shows that the hotel is...

Stayed one night after visiting Neuescwainstein and before going to see Linderhof next day. Convenient location and large family suite with 2 separate bedrooms. Breakfast is simple but ok. A restaurant nearby.

We were pleasantly surprised with Hotel Forsthaus. We stayed in one of the apartments- 2 king sized beds and a pull out sofa with kitchenette. Worked great. Friendly and helpful staff. Only downsides are parking and the walls were a little thin.

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Forsthaus Oberau. The hotel is ideally located, with parking and right next to a bus stop which is very convenient for going out and not having to worry about driving. My room had a balcony, it was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. There is a hot tub which is...

I keep raving about this place where we've stayed at least a dozen times. 15 minutes from Garmisch, without Garmisch prices, but comfortable well appointed rooms with nice balconies and views. A super restaurant is 2 blocks away. The best? Lisa and Bruce are super accommodating and friendly, and can advise on everything about the region. Why go anywhere else?

Very comfortable hotel with great view on the valley and mountains. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are excellent. This hotel is not located in Garmisch but railroad station and bus station just in few steps from the hotel so you can get to Garmisch in 10m by train or in 10-15m by bus. However there are many...

We arrived at the hotel and there appeared to be very little parking but we were fortunate enough to find a place in the 4 or 5 right on the front. My friend and I decided on single rooms as the expense was virtually the same as a double room. Each room was a little different and mine had a...

This hotel is not in Garmisch, but just outside of it which is great for commuting to and from for various activities. The owners and staff are super friendly and even let us borrow a baby carrier so that we could hike the gorge with my daughter who has a broken leg. They also came and spoke to us both...
