Had a lovely 3 days in Bavaria with Hotel Forsthaus being our base of operations. Located on the edge of town with gorgeous views of the Alps, we had a family room (2-room suite). Rooms were good size, one with balcony that had table and chairs. Comfortable beds. The staff was wonderful. Owners are American and very friendly. At breakfast,... More

We met my daughter's family in Germany during their military stay. She located Hotel Forsthaus on Trip Advisor, providing an excellent start to our vacation. Very clean, reasonably priced apartment with breathtaking view, outstanding service and staff, and an excellent concierge who steered us to all the right places during a lovely breakfast. Thank-you so much for sending the souvenir... More

One of the best places we've stayed in Europe. The room was extremely clean and the staff and owners were a pleasure to deal with. Their English was excellent, they accept VAT forms, the price was very reasonable and the wifi was fast and free. Very happy with this place.

We have stayed here before in the regular rooms, and this week rented the apartments. The owners are very friendly and attentive, very welcoming to families and pets and speak perfect English. My parents stayed here frequently when they were living in Germany, we will continue to stay here and recommend to our friends (who have also enjoyed their stay... More

We were so glad to have read online about this hotel. We were confident in booking because of the great reviews, and because of the quick and helpful responses we received via email when booking the hotel. The owners Bruce and Lisa were gracious and welcoming. The room was quaint, and the view beautiful. The location was perfect, a quick... More

Outstanding local hotel with the friendliest and most accommodating staff. The rooms are large, clean and cozy. This is our fourth stay here and we will definitely stay here every time we come to the Garmisch area. You can't get a better deal in one of the most beautiful areas of Germany. Their restaurant was closed on Saturday night but... More

Our family visited the Hotel Forsthaus and absolutely loved it! It is a love,y hotel run by a lovely family. The apartment we reserved is just the perfect size for sleeping 5. Don't miss the breakfast, especially if you like a traditional German type buffet. We will be back!

After a rather warm and unsettling day on the road, we were so glad we had reservations at Forsthaus for the night before the next leg of our drive. We were welcomed and settled in, and after dinner enjoyed sitting on our balcony and looking at the mountains. The place is peppered with antiques in the halls and common areas,... More

We stayed in an apartment for just over a week. The apartment slept five comfortably and was very clean. Breakfast was included. Hotel owners were very friendly and welcoming. Location: ten minutes to Garmisch, ten minutes to Oberamergau, five minutes to Autobahn A95 towards Munich (less than an hour to downtown). No restaurant in the hotel but an excellent local... More

Amazing little hotel right out side of town. Super friendly staff. The hotel is very cozy and you feel welcomed right when you walk in. We took our large dog with us and there was no additional cost for him to stay and thats unheard of. Nice breakfast every morning that included in the price per night. They have a... More
