We were pleasantly surprised with Hotel Forsthaus. We stayed in one of the apartments- 2 king sized beds and a pull out sofa with kitchenette. Worked great. Friendly and helpful staff. Only downsides are parking and the walls were a little thin.

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Forsthaus Oberau. The hotel is ideally located, with parking and right next to a bus stop which is very convenient for going out and not having to worry about driving. My room had a balcony, it was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. There is a hot tub which is... More

I keep raving about this place where we've stayed at least a dozen times. 15 minutes from Garmisch, without Garmisch prices, but comfortable well appointed rooms with nice balconies and views. A super restaurant is 2 blocks away. The best? Lisa and Bruce are super accommodating and friendly, and can advise on everything about the region. Why go anywhere else?

Very comfortable hotel with great view on the valley and mountains. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are excellent. This hotel is not located in Garmisch but railroad station and bus station just in few steps from the hotel so you can get to Garmisch in 10m by train or in 10-15m by bus. However there are many...

We arrived at the hotel and there appeared to be very little parking but we were fortunate enough to find a place in the 4 or 5 right on the front. My friend and I decided on single rooms as the expense was virtually the same as a double room. Each room was a little different and mine had a... More

This hotel is not in Garmisch, but just outside of it which is great for commuting to and from for various activities. The owners and staff are super friendly and even let us borrow a baby carrier so that we could hike the gorge with my daughter who has a broken leg. They also came and spoke to us both... More

This place was wonderful. The staff were terrific. Every morning you were offered an small traditional breakfast and the owner who spoke fluent English and German would sit and talk with you and discuss things to do in the area. The hotel is pet friendly and located just outside Garmish but central to everything. Just up the road was Munich... More

It's been almost 10 years since our family stayed at Hotel Forsthaus. It was exactly how we remembered it! We needed a place to just unwind and use as a central location for points of interest. It was an absolutely perfect vacation. We have added new memories to cherish until we can visit again. I love this hotel that goes... More

First, the rooms were big, the furnishings very nice, and the bathrooms were modern. Wifi excellent in the rooms and breakfast was good and changed a little bit every day. Bruce was very helpful letting us know what we might do in the area and what might me crowded or closed. They couldn't have been nicer when we did not... More

Been coming here for over ten years, Bruce and Lisa have never disappointed us with their generous hospitality. The hotel is very close to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, a good hour and a half walk through amazing scenery, there are a lot of local walking trails too. Great location across from the train station, great buffet breakfast too, great hotel and great people.
