“Nice Rooms - Beautiful View of the Valley”
Reviewed August 21, 2009

This is a pretty nice B&B for the price. It's location is top notch with views looking out on a beautiful alpine valley. It has a quaint and rural feel. The common areas felt a little tired and could have done for some updating. The room was quite nice and clean and the balcony was a bonus. The owners were welcoming, but not overly friendly (this was possibly due to language barriers, but I'm not sure). The breakfast was a self-serve continental, which was good - nothing special, but it did the trick. We ate supper at the restaurant one evening and it had good food but it was a little pricey. The beer with supper was fantastic, though!

We stayed at the Gasthaus Maria Gern on May 31, 2008. We had been there before on three occassions during the past ten years. This site (trip advisor) shows the rates as being about 57 euros, but we were charged 100 Euros, $166.00 at the exchange rate we purchased our Euros. Unfortuately you can not make reservations through this site so be prepared to pay much more.

The beds were not comfortable nor was the room and balcony as clean as on previous visit. The Gasthaus was/is closed on Saturday, although they did give guests a choice of three menue items for dinner that day.

The place has new owners and has lost some of its previous charm, however the scenery is out of this world.

Our next trip will not start at this hotel.

We spent 3 nights at the Hotel & Gasthaus Maria Gern and truly enjoyed the experience. Maria Gern is a little hard to find but if you follow the posted signs you'll be fine.

The Hotel/Gasthaus is located right next to a beautiful chapel and there are cows and sheep grazing in the adjoining fields. It is a very quiet and peaceful setting and the surrounding mountains are just beautiful. The Hotel/Gasthaus is not fancy or luxurious by any means, but it is very clean and the staff is very friendly. We truly enjoyed sitting on our room's balcony at night drinking a glass of wine or beer and looking at the billions of stars visible in the clear, clean mountain air.

If you're looking to get out-of-town to enjoy some magnificent alpine scenery, do some walking, or just enjoy some quiet time, Maria Gern is the place.

Stay here -not in town! Great location a couple of miles outside of Berchtesgaden, but with easy access to the town along a beautiful winding road. Picture-perfect setting surrounded by mountains and woods, all taken in from your own private balcony. Don't miss the shady hiking trail across the road that follows a crystal-clear running stream. Nice, comfortable hotel with friendly staff, at a bargain price. Excellent breakfast buffet included, and a relaxing outdoor dining patio with beautiful views.

Our room was lovely -- comfortable, clean and up to date, with a spectacular view of mountains, the church, and lush green hillsides. It's worth paying extra for a balcony. The place is only minutes from Berchtesgaden, but it seems set in a private world. The photos posted by an earlier reviewer are excellent, yet no photos really do justice to the setting.

The innkeeper, also the chef, is quite helpful, and he does speak English. The restaurant serves good traditional food.

We had a wonderful stay at the Maria Gern for three nights. The location of the hotel is outside the town of Berchtesgaden but well worth the beautiful scenery. The breakfast was very good. On Sunday night, they had a Bavarian ensemble that played in the hotel restaurant and it was great entertainment. There is a church located on the property that is very lovely. The hotel was very clean. I would recommend this hotel!

This hotel is located on the side of a mountain behind a quaint (and old) chapel. The view from the balcony outside our room was breathtaking.

The rooms are modern, spacious, and comfortable - there is no elevator, so we only carried what we needed for the night and the next day's clothing.

The owners and staff are friendly and fun, the food was outstanding, and on Thursdays, the only night we were there, they have a Bavarian band that plays (and jokes) during the dinner hours.

We saw several people with walking sticks and backpacks passing by, so it appears to be a popular area for hiking and bicycling.

I highly recommend this Hotel to any travelers to the Berchtesgaden area.
