“Superb stay in Southern Germany”
Reviewed February 18, 2010

To date, my trip to Bad Reichenhall was the best vacation I’ve ever had. This town, is located in southern Germany (Bavaria), and not far from the Austrian border.

The guest house/hotel is located about 2 kms from the train/ bus station, but it's a lovely scenic walk. The actual location of the hotel/guest house is away from the hustle and bustle. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful; you are surrounded by mountain views, river, spring, and much greenery. Breathe deeply and enjoy the fresh air!

The hosts/owners of Hotel Quellenhof, Familie Pete, were super nice. They were more than happy to provide excellent information on local attractions.

The guest house is well kept. The hosts/owners also run a Cafe where you can enjoy delightful pastries.

The breakfast kept me full the entire day - for vegetarians, there is fresh rye bread, pastry, muesli, soya milk! But there is also milk, eggs, cheese, butter, fresh cream, and fresh yogurt, as well as a range of sausages.

There isn't much I can say I didn't like about the hotel. I really don't spend time critiquing the decor. I found the ambiance to be homey. Personally, as long as the place is clean and comfortable, I'm fine. I spent most of my time outdoors... drinking in the scenery...

The hotel/guest house is located in a quiet area, so my sleep was peaceful. If you are looking for a scenic, quiet place that is off the beaten track, then, this may be the place for you - whether you are a solo traveler, or traveling with a companion.

Bad Reichenhall is very scenic, and with a map in hand, you can get to everywhere by walking. I've included some pictures of landmarks for your viewing pleasure. You will not see the large sky scrapers characteristic of a bustling metropolis. Instead, most of the buildings are low rise; there are lots of trees, parks, and everywhere you look, you will see mountains....

From Bad Reichenhall, you can get to Salzburg, Austria by coach - return fare is about 11 or 12 Euros - in about 30 to 40 minutes. If you take the bus, it's about 1 hr and a half, but it's a scenic trip, and would cost about 4 Euros one way. The bus or coach will take you to the main area, which is by Schloss Mirabell and Andra Kirche. There is a tourist booth near Andra Kirche where you can purchase tours to the major attractions.

When in Salzburg you may take the Sound of Music tour which is about 4 and 1/2 hrs.. I opted for the city and boat tour, as this was about 2 and /12 hrs, and spent time walking around and enjoying the sights and sounds of the city.

From the train station in Bad Reichenhall, you may also take a day trip to Munich - it's about 2 hrs and 45 mins ride through the scenic country side. Marienplatz in Munich is an architectural wonder....

The hotel/guest house is located in a quite country area not far from a the Saalach River. There is path that allows you to take a stroll along the river. The guesthouse is also near Predigtstuhl mountain. The mountain is accessible by a gondola, which was built circa 1929. The panoramic view of the town below is a must see.

Overall, my stay at the guest house and my vacation was a most wonderful experience.
