Had a thoroughly enjoyable meal here, good selection on the menu, food was well-cooked and plentiful and the waitress went out of her way to track down a particular wine in the hotel bar. Uncrowded, correct ambient temperature and everything was spotlessly clean. Couldn't fault it.

We had a dinner with our professors at this restaurant. Everybody seemed happy with the service, meals, the view, the atmosphere. Even though it's a bit pricey place, it's definitely a go-to place when in Garmisch-Partenkirhcen. The relaxing calamity of the lake, beautiful Zugspitze, everything! Bravo, Seehaus Riessersee!

You can hike around the Riessersee and follow it up with some coffee and AMAZING apple strudel. You have a view of the Zugspitz and lake from the outside patio. Lunch menu is limited to bratwurst and some soup options.

We didn't actually overnight here but only because we didn't know about it. Our cab driver suggested the buffet at the restaurant and he was right. It was so delicious. Fresh squeezed OJ from a juicer machine right in front of you. So yummy. Lots of choices and good service. We went there twice from our hotel just to eat... More

Although the restaurant was empty. Waiter does not allow us to sit on the window side to lake. Simply pushed us to a corner. When we leave the restaurant, was only one table occupied in the whole restaurant. Therefore, not hotel-visitors are not wellcome. Although it is a nice restaurant, you get tea even in a simple glas not in... More

A pleasant but quite strenuous walk (I'm in my 70s) so probably a stroll for someone fitter and younger, but well worth the walk ( take the route through the wooded pathway, well signposted. then I would suggest a walk around the lake first, watching the fish as you stroll around. then a drink and some wonderful cake on the...

I didn't stay here but we came with friends for food and coffee. Excellent!!! The chef was cooking the pancakes in front of us and the selection of stuff on the buffet was incredible, likely a five (or even six) star venue!

My family went to stay at this hotel on November the 27th to December the 1st. It is just a little bit out of the town up on a hill with fantastic views of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. We've requested a bigger room with a bedroom upstairs and bathroom, this had a balcony with a fantastic view of the town. Downstairs we had... More

Make a reservation with the front desk for about 6 PM, depending upon the time of year. And ask for a table along the front windows, or if it's warm outside, on the patio. Just simply gorgeous!
