Hi bledwards,

Sorry, I haven't been in a hotel here in Garmisch, though I can give some information about where each one is located and how convenient it is for busses, trains, or the pedestrian street.

But it may be helpful if you could give us some figures for what you consider "reasonably priced," as that means different things to different people. That way, folks can know exactly what kind of room you are looking for.

In the meantime, you may want to hunt around the town's central web site at


There, you can search for a room by dates, the number of rooms, and number of occupants for each room. Then, you'll have a list of the hotels that are within your price range.

Good luck with your research!

I would look into an apartment instead of two rooms. Generally, owners in Germany like to rent their places for a week, but most will do so for 2-3 nights, often with a small surcharge added. But apartments tend to be very reasonable in the first place. This place in Garmisch, for example, has room for your family and runs 40 euros for 2 per night plus 8 euros per additional person. With resort tax on top (2/person) the 5 of you would pay 74 Euros/night. Even if they tacked on a 25-Euro surcharge for a short stay, I doubt you'd find a triple and a double for less elsewhere for less than 99 Euros/night.


Of course, a kitchen allows you to save on a meal here and there too. Pick up some coffee, some muesli, some bread and cheese, and you've got breakfast, or pack a light lunch for your outings.

The website swandav provides should be the most helpful one; don't be shy about contacting the tourist office for assistance in finding something that meets your needs - they know the area best.
