Absolutely loved the location at the base of the castles. Loved the therms. Most of all, loved the staff. They will literally do anything to make you comfortable. I highly recommend a horse-drawn ride through the woods. Depending on the time of year or the amount of snow, you'll either ride in a sleigh or a carriage. Christmas card-worthy!

Hotel's Favorite
We booked this place due to its proximity to the 2 castles and were a bit hesitant at the price...but went ahead for 2 nights anyway. We are so glad we did as the staff bends over backwards to make your stay special. We went with a suite and added the 1/2 board and had them book us castle tickets. Everything was so well done for us...they booked our castle times at the perfect times that as we finished one and arrived at the next, we had almost no wait..just walked right in. They picked us up at the train station, arranged all our cabs, left little notes and refreshments in our room for our return from a day exploring. Every staff member smiles and greeted us and even took a few moments to ask about us, our days plans and offered tips on the area ect. The food was amazing! Each night they had a different dinner with wine or beer specifically for that meal. We had our own table assigned to us during our stay. We could’nt have hoped for anything more in a hotel!!

This hotel is perfectly located. It is a few minutes drive from town and directly across the street from the Neuschwanstein castle. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel at home from the moment you enter. The main floor feels like a luxurious lodge, it has a fire place lots of comfortable seating and gives the the impression that you are in a coffee house in the mountains. There is a coffee ☕️/ cocktail 🍹 bar and some booth seating to the the right of the guest check-in, and further down the hall is the entrance to the restaurant. The restaurant is well decorated and has one special room that is all natural wood, it is very chic! Room We entered the room to find a sweet note welcoming us, as it was our honeymoon, to the property! They also included a 1/2 bottle of cava, a fruit tray 🍎 🍌 🍉 🍇 and some little cakes. The room was spacious and even had a round bed! The decor was great, the bathroom had a large tub and an awesome steam shower! The view is a whole other story, there was a deck with two sun loungers that looked out at the castle! 🏰 👀 We felt like royalty!👸🏼🤴🏻 Restaurant Breakfast - breakfast was amazing! It consisted of a large buffet, and had everything from baked goods to eggs and bacon! 🍳 🥓 🥐 there was even 🍾 to make mimosas 🍊 🥂 and more liquor should one wish to have something a little stronger! 😉 Dinner - we sis not have dinner at the restaurant as we went to the sister lodge property, which was fantastic! Castle 🏰 The Neuschwanstein castle is right there! Many if not all of the rooms at the hotel overlook the castle! It is so cool. The castle itself is about a 5 minute drive to a point where it becomes more visa le in photos and you are welcome to buy tickets to take the inside tour. We did not have a chance to do this, as we only had one night and we doing a wedding shoot. An authentic German lodge atop a mountain 🏔 The hotel shuttle 🚌 drove us 15 minutes up a mountain of switchbacks to eat dinner and hang out at their mountain top lodge! This property was amazing. It gives you the most undisturbed taste of what Germany is like, in every way possible. The clientele are all locals, that walk🚶🏻🚶‍♀️ or ride up the mountain on bike! 🚲 The food is real traditional German cuisine. 🍴🥘 the menu is small but efficient, the potato soup 🥔 🥣 is out of this world! Of you walk uphill five minutes you have a stellar viewpoint 🌲🌲🌲 of the town of Schwangau. If you are lucky you will make it for sunset! 😉 There is also a huge deck with a gas fireplace where you can hang out. And off to the side of the building there is a real fire pit for those true outdoorsman! 🔥 *The staff is friendly and accommodating! We LOVED every minute and would highly recommend Hotel Das Ruebezahl!

Doesn’t look like much from the outside when you arrive, but it’s a great hotel. We stayed in a junior suite which was bright, very spacious and comfortable. The suite has a small entry hallway which opens onto the bathroom and then a large room with a couch and chair and good size desk and large bed. Excellent lighting. A good size balcony with a couple of chairs to enjoy the gorgeous view of the castles. Screened door so you can keep the door open for fresh air and not worry about bees and bugs. No sheets, just duvets, but not heavy, so we had a good night sleep as it was a cool evening, (no air conditioning, so a hot night wouldn’t be pleasant). Lots of closet space with shelving. Lots of hangars that detach but without the hook to hang elsewhere, so if you like to steam your clothes bring extra hangars. Lots of outlets in the room. Good wifi. Large bathroom has mural and soaking tub and separate shower and a window. Good lighting and a make-up mirror, but the mirror doesn’t light up and no lights overhead! Very nice toiletries, but no conditioner. Bath salt sachets for the tub. Nice towels. Waterproof tote with towels, robes and slippers supplied for the pool area. It’s a small but nice pool with the great view of the castles and there are lots of deck areas with chaise lounges. Didn’t have a chance to use the spa, but it looks very nice. Excellent breakfast buffet, one of the best I’ve seen, including many assorted loose teas and a large variety of honeys including a huge block of fresh honey comb. Great coffee options as well. Dinner was excellent. Unfortunately their gourmet restaurant hadn’t yet reopened after the summer. The hotel has the best restaurant in town, so you’ll want to make reservations ahead of time. Important tip - you are assigned a table for your stay for breakfast and dinner. The restaurant has 4 sections. The two areas we liked best are either side of the garden room with the view of the castles. The interior of the restaurant is a bit dark and the tables are much closer together. Make sure you request a table assignment when you book your room. We didn’t know about this and were originally assigned inside, which felt dreary on a sunny day. If you plan to see the castles, the hotel will reserve the tickets for you with the right language tour. You get a nice jar of jam when you check out!
