I stayed at this place for six nights. The owners, Evelyn and Gary, were outstanding. They treated me extremely well and the room was clean and the views fantastic. I was close to many wonderful motorcycling experiences. I couldn't ask for anything more; an outstanding value!

Haus Karl's Ruh - This b&b/hotel is very aptly named - loosely translated from German to English - a peaceful and restful place. It is also a beautiful place - nestled in a valley surrounded by the Austrian alps. We stayed for three nights near the end of June and discovered this location is a great gateway to some amazing...

I spent 2 nights here while travelling on my motorbike. Haus Karl's Ruh is spotlessly clean and has everything you need to be comfortable. Evelyn is a great host and looks after her guests well, and Heidi certainly enjoys some petting while lying in the sun. Breakfast is simple but filling, and cooked eggs are offered if wanted. The view... More

On a recent 5 week trip to Europe Haus Karl's Rue was on our agenda for a 2 day stay in October. Oh how we both wish it could have been longer.

We loved staying at Haus Karl's Ruh. Gary and Evelyn were the most inviting hostesses. The bed and breakfast is adorable! Breakfast was great as well.

Recently returned from 5 nights in Ehrwald staying with Gary and Evelyn (and Heidi). Very welcoming. Lovely room. Very clean. Lots of snow so fantastic powder skiing too. Most of the other guests were returning for umpteenth time and we could understand why as there is nothing even vaguely negative to say about the place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Haus Karl's Ruh is a small family run guest house in Ehrwald in the Austrian Tirol.We are located in the heart of the village, 5 minutes walk from the village centre & ski lifts, with the panoramic Wetterstein Range as our backdrop. The house was handed down to us by my Uncle & so we have an in depth knowledge of the village & the surrounding areas. Due to our location within the Zugspitz Arena we are an excellent base for walkers & climbers during in the summer months & ski/snowboard enthusiasts in the winter. The Bavarian castles of King Ludwig, Schloss Neuschwanstein & Schloss Linderhof, are 40 minutes drive away. Munich is within easy reach either by train or car & we are ideally placed for beer enthusiasts wanting to visit the 'Oktober Fest'. Innsbruck is a 50 minute drive away & Italy & Switzerland are also within driving distance. ... more   less
