Thanks to TripAdvisor we stayed at Baeckeralm, a wonderful small, quiet inn located on a hill with an incredible view of the Alps. It is located about 2 miles outside the hustle and bustle of Mittenwald, a thriving winter-summer resort town. Hiking, biking, snow skiing, mountain climbing, shopping, and sightseeing are all nearby. Baeckeralm’s owners, Heidi and Jngolf are very... More

That was the best of the best staying in Bavaria land. It has past almost a year from our staying there, but I still have the warmest memories about it. The amazing view on Karwendel mountain from the window and the best owners of the house speaking to whom enlightened us about local people and traditions and attractions of Bavaria... More

We recently had a very pleasant stay at Bäckeralm Guesthouse - our time there was short but it was sweet :-) We were heartily greeted upon arrival by the owner Ingolf who was very helpful giving us local advice on things to see and do in area. When we were leaving he helped us plan our itinerary and generously made... More

We spent a relaxing and comfortable 4 day holiday in this beautiful part of Bavarian Alps. The house is cozy and and well furnished. The hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to help you feel at home. The house is conveniently located within a 35 minute walk to Mittenwald through the forest, and there's also a...

I will remember Backeralm forever because my fiance proposed to me there one morning, after breakfast, as we looked out our back deck at the Alps. A beautiful sunny day on May 1st. The hosts are very friendly and talkative, and really want you to have a great visit (they will give you maps and pamphlets to help you). The... More

I felt so lucky to stumble upon this charming guest house for a three-day ski weekend with two friends. The prices beat Garmisch accommodations by far, with a fantastic view and cozy-homey-romantic feel that surely beat out most Garmisch options. I had an injury and a dog, and Ingolf and Heidi could not have been any more helpful and accommodating... More

I have spent a week at Backeralm with my family in December. The place is located near Mittenwald and 15km from Garmisch. We were skiing in Garmish, and the travel takes around 20 min. by car, which was no problem. The Backeralm is located on a small hill with a breath taking view. We received the rooms exactly the ones... More

I absolutely loved staying here. Ingoff was so accomodating and even upgraded our room since we were the only guest. He gave us an itinerary to see all the BEAUTIFUL sights around the area which worked out perfectly for our plans. The breakfast was great and so fresh. The view from the lovely, comfy room was to die for and... More

We stayed at the Baeckeralm for one night in early October and it was exactly what we had hoped for and what many of the contributors here have described. The views from all the rooms are stunning, the breakfasts are very good, and the owners are extremely helpful. They spent time with each of the guests at breakfast, helping with... More

We arrived at the Backeralm less than a week after the previous posters negative review and can't help to wonder if we were staying at the same place. We had a very enjoyable two night stay and cannot say enough about Ingolf and Heidi. They were very gracious hosts like so many others have said. We were close to the... More
