“Good Value, Friendly Reception”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2005

Rooms were decorated in a 1950's style, but were very clean. The hotel is perfect for the budget traveller. Location is good, but I would have preferred to stay somewhere off the main road in Oberammagau. The hosts at breakfast were the friendliest we had on our 2 week German family. Breakfast was excellent for this budget hotel.

A Fairy Tale Journey

Just south of Munich, Germany one enters the majestic Alps where the magical
village of Oberammergau lies in the Ammer River valley. In the heart of this famous
Village, acclaimed for its Passion Play and intricate woodcarvings , is the
Schilcherhof Hotel-Cafe.
A stay in the Schilcherhof and Oberammergau is to embark on a fairy tale odyssey.
By entering this story book kingdom you stroll among the captivating fresco
painted houses, encountering the “Little Red Riding Hood” house, then gazing across
the street to view the “Hanzel and Gretal”House, as they vanquish the “Wicked
Witch”. These are just the beginning of the enchanting discoveries near this family
owned hotel. The friendly welcome by the Schilcher-Thilo family will entice you to
return to this bewitching place.
This is the ideal location to visit the “Fairy Tale King” Ludwig II’s exotic castle,
Linderhof, his smallest and most beautiful castle. It is just a short distance from this
enchanting Village. Linderhof, with the magnificent gardens, is the only Castle that
was completed in King Ludwig’s life time. The spectacular Neuschanstein and
Hohenschwangau Castles, his boyhood home, are also within an hour’s drive.
Just three kilometers away, on the route to Garmisch, a world renown resort , is the
beautiful Baroque Monastery, Ettal. This Benedictine Abbey is adorned by some the
most inspiring religious fresco paintings north of Florence and Rome. The Altar
center- piece, Madonna and Child, a priceless Icon, was stolen from the High Altar of
this Abbey in 1990, creating a major tumult throughout Christendom.
The family Schilcher-Thilo, the proprietors of the Schilcherhof Hotel , were hailed
as heroes when this miraculous statue was recovered , buried in their garden,
remaining there for five months before its safe return to Ettal. It is a fascinating and
intriguing experience to hear this wondrous story.
Any traveler will recognize the lure of being a guest in such a perfect location for
restful reflection, a touch of history and the stunning beauty of the mountains in this
part of southern Germany. Located off the nearby Romantic Road, the ancient route
from Rome to the northern outposts of Augsburg, Rothenburg and Wurtzburg, it is an
ideal place to explore a glorious part of Europe. The Schilcherhof Hotel-Cafe
welcomes you !

Hello Fellow Travelers, Looking for a cozy place to rest your head and feed your soul.Well we found that place;it's Der Schilcherhof Hotel & Cafe in Oberammergau.Our stay at this wonderful Inn and village was unforgettable. The adjectives to describe the Pension are pristine,spacious,full of Bavarian charm, and their pastries are to die for. The Innkeepers, Schilcher-Thilo Family did a fantastic job tending to a traveler's needs and making each room feel cozy and safe. The location is ideal, it's walking distance to quaint shops, restaurants, Passion Play Theater, ski slopes,cross country trails, and many more attractions and activities.This is a place you can visit any time of the year. Our visit was a winter wonderland and we look forward to returning in the splendor of the springtime when the countryside and window boxes are filled with floral delights. We left a piece of our hearts there, and we will return. Happy trails. The Dyers
