“Views views views!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Great location on top the hill. Views of the Alps! Place looks fab from the outside. Unfortunately only opens till 18.30 Mon-Fri in winter, so we didn't have a chance to eat there as visited in January. Hopefully we will next time round.

“Best Apfelstrudel ever - add the view and you have Christmas”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We used to visit Bayerischer Rigi at least once a month when living in Munich since we discovered it on a motorcycle tour (lovely road going up there).

Bayerischer Rigi is on top of Hohenpeißenberg which means it has an altitude of1000 m (mamsl). It is located in the "Voralpen" = before the Alps really start and when the weather is nice you have a fantastic view over the same. The windows in the restaurant are place facing south and pretty much any where you it here you can enjoy the same.

To the food - the menu (which Im not sure that they have in English) is quite extensive and everything we have had so far has been great, but the best of all is the Apfelstrudel. We sometimes went here and had three Apfelstrudels between the two of us. Since Bayerischer Rigi it hasn't been worth ordering them in other places...

On top of the hill there is also a small church you can visit and a weather station with some information.

“award-winning restaurant with the idyllic panorama view”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

This charming restaurant is the hidden gem tucked away between the gorgeous Linderhof Palace and Zugspitze that offers the grand panorama view of Bavaria, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Located on the hilltop of Hohenpeißenberg, this award-winning venue also provides the idyllic view overlooking the Bavarian villages in addition to the authentic Bavarian gourmet along with classy ambience. I had come on guard for what it had to offer after being bamboozled by a few restaurants/beer gardens in the nearby touristy places. Yet, dining here had become one of the highlights of this excursion. Hohenpeißenberg a wonderful get-away from the hustle and bustle and Bayerischer Rigi is where you should raise a mass of beer and Prost!

“Absolutely Stunning View”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

We were brought by a local to this restaurant, church & Overview of the stunning Alps to the south...and to the north, the Ammersee & town of Diessen. We took the opportunity to get refreshments, and Ice Cream, and to soak in the glorious view!! The church was beautiful, but the View is the star...especially on a clear day. Outdoor Panoramic Diagram of each mountain peak, with Mt. names, adds to the grandeur!!

This trip to this 'high place', could be combined with a trip to Oberammergau.
