“Nice gameroom and unlimited tea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The hotel exudes an authentic old feel of Bavaria. The breakfast is good especially the cold cuts and sausages. What i like most is the game room where my son and I played foosball. Nearby, there was a tea making facility which offered a wide array of flavored teas.

Stayed there for 2 days. Excellent, welcoming staff. Even got a tshirt I had forgotten there returned home, what a surprise! Ideally located for hiking around without being much in the city neither! That was a pleasant stay in Tirol.

At just 2 miles from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, this hotel is perfectly set to accommodate all types of travellers. We arrived a couple of days after Boxing Day and even though we arrived at 11am, our room was still available. Rooms are very well decorated and furnished and the bathroom with shower & toilet was immaculate. Plenty of wardrobe space and our request for extra coathangers was dealt with immediately. Although it states that wi-fi is available in public areas, we were able to pick it up in our room (108) with ease.
The adjoining restaurant served a good selection of food and drink with some very tasty Bavarian dishes, although it is advisable to book a table in advance. We had a special New Years Eve menu and at midnight all went outside for fireworks and champagne (provided by hotelier)
The village of Farchant is very pleasant with some lovely buildings with wall art on the sides. There are plenty of well signed walks and a hike up to the waterfalls is recommended
Breakfast was included and there was a very good selection of breads, rolls, meat, cheese, cereals, fruit and salad. Fried or scrambled eggs were available if required.
Would we stay here again? Most definitely!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room if available

Located about 12 minutes from Oberammergau the hotel was our refuge from the passion play ad the steep prices of the larger town. It is a great location, and while the website makes it seem located in the country, it is definitely in town (a small one, but a town). Farchant is picturesque

Service could not have been more pleasant. The Breakfasts were very nice. Rooms were small but adequate. @ single rooms were just as cheap as a double.

The hotel is a good base for exploring Zugspitz, Oberammergau, Garmish, Mittenwald, Innsbruck and the environs

Farchant is about five minutes by car from Garmisch, the train station, restaurants and shopping. This gem of a hotel is ideally located somewhat off the beaten path, and an ideal "home base" for trips to Oberammergau, Fussen, and train trips to Innsbruck, Munich. The inn keeper and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating; food is wonderful. There is a bakery across the street and walking paths are close by. Very convenient parking. Staying here gave us a look at small town life in Bavaria in the most gorgeous setting imaginable. And....the cows are driven out to pasture and back home every day down the village streets...fun to watch!

A beautiful, practical hotel in a beautiful town, the Gasthof Alter Wirt is ideal for traveleres wanting to get away from the stress of city life. The rooms are practical and comfortable, nothing too fancy, but very cozy. The staff is very kind and extremely helpful. The food in the restaurant downstairs is absolutley delicious and their menu offers a wide variety of traditional Bavarian dishes, all made with fresh ingredients. Skiing in the alps is just a quick bus ride away and the center of Garmisch is only about a 10 minute bus ride. The town it's in, Farchant, is quite small but very friendly and relaxed. The town is nestled in the alps, so everywhere you look there are beautiful views of the mountains. Overall, if you're looking for real examples of Bavarian life, and not just another tourist trap, or you'd just like a quiet, relaxing vacation with great food and beautiful scenery, you can't go wrong with this hotel.

  • Liked — the friendly and helpful staff, proximity to mountains, food
  • Disliked — nothing really.
