“WOW! Unbelievable hotel and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This Bavarian Inn is located outside the village of Fussen, directly across the meadows from Neuschwanstein Castle. While this place can be difficult to find, be persistent, because once you are there you will be glad you made it.

The Inn is very quaint, and houses fantastic rooms, a great spa and wonderful restaurant. Our particular room was a "double" and it shared a very large balcony with two other rooms, to my recollection. The balcony looked directly across the open meadow to Neuschwanstein Castle and it was a spectacular view to wake up to each morning. The beds were comfortable and because I'm a bigger guy, I actually wondered if it would hold me for the night. No problem there. The beds had on them a very light Decke (down filled duvet in English) and the bathroom was of good size as well.

The morning breakfast buffet was spectacular and once again, the views were over the meadow toward the Schloss (castle). Also in the morning, directly in front of the entrance of the Inn, the road was taken over by the local farmer as he meandered his cattle from the barn down into his fenced in field. He had a bike, a stick and knew how to maneuver both to get the cattle into the right place. For a city boy from the States, this was great to see.

Truly, I've been to Fussen on three different occasions but this was the first stay at Hotel Ruebezahl. It will not be my last, I hope. :) Do yourselves a favor and book here. You will not be sorry. Unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy the on-site spa.

Although not as close to the two castles as other hotels, from our balcony room the benefit was clear: you can see across the farm to the mountains & Schloss. Food was excellent as was the quality of the accommodation in one of their luxury suites.

Room Tip: A view of the mountains is the best way to make the most of this property - although the view can be...

Arrived one night from Munich. Here to see Ludwig's castles. Beautiful new or totally renovated B&B style. Great bike trails. Five star dinner & breakfast. All inclusive with a castle tour for less than a 5 star hotel in Munich. We paid 270 euro for the package. We'd come back anytime!!

Room Tip: Facing the castles

Wonderful stay, for the third time. Food, facilities, service, staff , all first rate. Happily recommend to travellers.
Access to walking and bike trails, Fussen, castles, Schwangau, ideal.
We have found this hotel to be a place to return to when we are near Schwangau. Consistency and looking for improvements is apparent in their service delivery.

We booked Hotel Ruebezahl after reading reviews and were not disappointed. The owners and staff are very hospitable and provide everything you need. The half board dinner started with a self service buffet appetizer selection, then the rest of the meal (soup, main & dessert) was served. There was a choice of three mains and our two choices were excellent. Breakfast was an excellent buffet selection and I understand they will also make you a packed lunch if you ask. We stayed in a standard room and quite frankly we couldn't have wanted anything more - our own deck with chairs and table, view of the castles, sun, space, all amenities as well as a very comfortable bed. Peace and quiet. We were only there for one night, passing through really, but it would be an excellent base for day trips.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view of the castles, as you get the sun as well.

This our second visit to this hotel and it did not disappoint. The food is wonderful. Our dinner was one of the best we have had. Breakfast is just as good. The rooms are upscale with a spa shower...great for us Americans. We had a view of the castle and had a balcony to sit on our chairs and enjoy the view. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
We are talking about going back and spending more time. We can highly recommend this hotel.
