The Fraundorfer is a great place to soak in the spirit of Bavaria! It has a B&B feel in the main building (only eight rooms and a large common area), but there's a more private building in the back of the property called Gasthous Barbara. I stayed on the third floor, in a comfortable room with incredible views of the historic district of Partenkirchen and the Alps in the background. Many of the sites and hikes are within walking distance, and for activities further abroad, mass transit is just a few blocks away.
You'll find the Fraundorfer family to be genuine, warm, and comfortable English speakers (particularly Barbara). Don't miss the great (and free) breakfast and Bavarian accordion/yodeling in the evening---a bit over the top maybe, but its all part of the fun!
Unique Quality: Views, hospitality, and accessibility to attractions are all uber-pluses...
Directions: Historic Ludwigstrasse District
Unique Quality: Good Bavarian experience! Very friendly owners. Both Mr. and Mrs. Faundorfer speak excellent English, so as their daughters.
Details see my travelogue.
Directions: See their website for map and detailed direction.
The Fraundorfer has a cozy, rustic atmosphere and excellent food. It is a hot spot for locals and tourists. Come here hungry because you will be stuffed with the generous, hearty portions. The walls are covered in photographs, hunting trophies, and all sorts of Bavarian items. Usually there is an accordion player who sings, plays, and yodels during your meal and every half an hour, or so, the Bavarian slap-dancers come out and do a performance. Reservations are recommended. Jagerschnitzel--The sauce is rich and wonderful.
Make reservations any night of the week for this place! There is a reason it is a packed house! Wonderful food and great entertainment!
Wish we would have stayed in their Guesthouse upstairs!
The Acordian music, singing, yodels, were wonderful! The slap dancers were just neat!
Don't be alarmed if you are seated with others---a chance to meet new people and enjoy great food! Literally EVERYTHING we saw the staff bring out looked very good!
Yippeee! My friend and I have just bought our tickets for the New Year's Day Ski Jumping competition in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Now we just need a nice place to stay.
Does any of you have any advise where we should try to find one? Has anyone ever stayed in a nice B&B there? Any idea what to do on New Year's eve?
How about joining Janne Ahonen & co?
I will send you privately their hotel name :)
I definitely wouldn't mind ;-)))))
Sabs, Gasthof Fraundorfer in Partenkirchen. See their website for details (you can read their German version) and photos in my Garmisch-Partenkirchen for photos (in a travelogue).
We loved it.
Have a great time!
Oh, thank you. I will check it out now!
The Zimmer Frei office in the train station can help find you a room also. I have been to Garmish several times over the x-mas/New Year week and never made reservations and always found a room through the train station accomodations office. The greatest thing on New Years was the fire works. Buy lots of rockets and set your off as everyone else sets theirs off. Try to have a little elevation at mid-night to see the full display. Bar hop until 2300 and then start making your way up to some place with a good view of the valley.
That's wonderful news Sabs!!!
I wish you more luck with accomodation than we had - we weren't able to find anything and we looked for a place 2 months ago! We'll be based in Innsbruck and come to GP just for the competition. See you there :-))
Hehehe Nykaenen, you didn't think that we will really do it, did ya? Well, we did :-) But we'll only go to the Garmisch competition.
See ya :-)
heya sabsi..wenn alle stricke reissen sollten....pension hanna steht euch zur verfuegung und garmisch ist ja net die welt von muc entfernt..
btw...ahhhh will auch sehen....
Oh, danke schön Hanna :-) Das ist natürlich ein klasse Angebot. Aber keine Angst, wir finden schon was....
If there's a competition on you might find it easier to get accomodation in the numerous 'Gasthauses' in the surrounding villages such as Ettal and Oberammergau. It takes about 10 mins to drive to Garmisch (if you have a car of your own)
I found accommodation for $160 a night, out of town. What I need help with is how/where can I get ski-jumping tickets? Please help, I don't read German!
For tickets check:
But there will be enoguh tickets for standing at the day of the competition.
