We did not go this year but got talking to someone who mentioned visiting the museum there, so it may be fairly different from our last visit.The Klause and Erhenberg host a mediaeval festival each July. There is...

  • The Plansee and Heiterwangersee

    You can walk to these lakes from Reutte by continuing on past the waterfalls. It is around another 30/40 minutes from the waterfalls to the Plansee lake. I love the walk along the lakes' edges from the Plansee to the Heiterwangersee with their steep mountains and clear blue waters. At the Plansee there is a kiosk for snacks and drinks, a gasthaus...

    Walk to Hofen via Wangle or take the bus from Reutte and you can take the cable car up to the Alpine garden. The views from the top are lovely. I'll have to scan photos later as we did not do it this time.

This has not been the...

  • Swim in the Urisee

    The Urisee is a lovely lake that can be reached on foot from the centre of Reutte in around 30 minutes. Head in the direction of Muhl. This lovely lake is wonderful for a cold swim. Or if you are not brave enough, you can walk around and enjoy the scenery. The Urisee Gasthaus next to the lake is available for food and drink. It's very pleasant.

Reutte Restaurants

  • An old friend

    This restaurant is a firm favourite of ours. It has remained unchanged over the years, We were even served by the same waitress as always. Daily specials on the board. Note they stop serving food around 8pm and will turn you away if you come too close to this time. I had a great nature schnitzel here.

  • Great place for a meal or a drink.

    This was the first restaurant I ever went to in Reutte. There are indoor and outdoor seating areas. It is a local rather than touristy place. The food and drink are good and the staff are pleasant.I had a great champignon schnitzel with rice and peas, my husband had weiner schnitzel. Very good.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you intend to travel by train between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Füssen along the scenic "Außenfern" railway, you will most like have to change trains in Reutte. The complete run takes about 2 hours each way (longer and breathtaking in winter). An interesting sidenote: although a majority of this rail line runs through Austria, it is operated by the German Bundesbahn.

    Food, housewares, clothing...it´s all here..at mark-it-down-and-move-it-out prices!

    What to buy: Carbonated beverages...these are only sold in return/deposit bottles in Germany. In Austria, the PET bottles are disposable/recyclable.

    What to pay: ...as little or as much as you want! Last time I was there we went WAY over the number of products the cash register will list on one receipt!
