“Great views of mountains and town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Our room had the most wonderful view of the mountains and Mittenwald town. The room was clean, comfortable and warm. The breakfast was delicious and also had great views. Unfortunately we felt out of place here. We were never given directions or pamphlets of the surrounding attraction (I did my own research but it is helpful to have the host give advice etc). We were anxious to rent bikes and hike as advertised on their website, but no one was around to offer them or help us rent/use them on the trails. The host misunderstand my email about the amount of nights we needed to stay, and as we were leaving for the day she ran in the streets after us telling us we needed to get out now as her next guests were coming. She did not have another room for us nor did she offer to help us find or recommend another accommodation. It was very stressful and disappointing.

This was a great B&B choice in a town full of self-serve vacation rentals. Uphill from town square in a quiet area with beautiful views of mountains and town. We rented one of the apartments and had everything we needed for our five night stay (see photos). It was nice to have a small kitchen to store some food items and we even had a picnic on our balcony one evening with the roasted chicken and sides from a town shop. As it was B&B, the breakfast was bountiful and delicious, in typical German style, along with a different hot dish each day. Our hostess could not have been more helpful and we highly recommend this spot. I think they were getting ready to do a little off-season upgrades. Mittenwald is a hidden gem, the Germans go here for vacation, so don't tell anyone else! And the local beer is outstanding!

Having never been to the Alps before, we were in awe ! But not only by the breathtaking view of the towering Karwendel. Bergzauber is superbly located within walking distance to the charming town centre, each room has a private balcony to enjoy lovely sundowners from or simply listen to the concert from the "Kurpark" below. And awakening to the smell of coffee in the morning is simply unforgettable - as is the sumptious breakfast buffet, which was one of the many higlights. Storage for our mountain bikes was provided for at no extra cost. And hosts like the Bäumlers are very hard to find - they will make you feel at home in an instant. Most of the other guests had already spent many holidays at Bergzauber - proof of the outstanding hospitality. We will certainly return and will not stay at any other place than Bergzauber.

Hotel Bergzauber (mountain magic) has unbeatable views of Mittenwald. We could look out on the Karwendel Mountains and see the gondolas ascending and descending.

The place is conveniently located - about a five minute walk (uphill from, downhill to) the town center. It's family run, and I imagine sports enthusiasts will appreciate the fact that the husband-and-wife team who run the place are avid sportspeople.

The rooms we had was spacious, all decked out with hard wood furnishings. Like the hotel's common areas, our room had plenty of odds and ends from all over the world - tokens from the travels of the current owner's ancient aunt, who still lives on the property and helps out. The room had no bathroom, but it had a sink and we had our own private bath directly across the hall. No one else used it, so it was fine.

The breakfasts are really well-done, but be warned about two things.

First, If you're not used to small European hotels, you may find it unpleasant to share tables with strangers. Forget your stereotypes of jolly, fat Bavarians eager to get to know you. Mittenwald doesn't get much international traffic, so the people visiting aren't that used to hobnobbing with foreigners. I speak German and still found it rather awkward - plus you can be sure if you're speaking English, everyone in the room will stop talking to listen to what you're saying.

Second, the proprietress assigns seats for breakfast. So your first morning there, she'll show you to your seat, and unless you raise a fuss, that will be your seat for every morning thereafter. We didn't know this, so on our second morning, we arrived as soon as the breakfast room doors opened, and sat by the window. We were told (albeit nicely, which can be rare in Germany) that the seats were assigned. We were moved back to our interior table (with no views), and watched as our coveted seats were taken by "regulars", who read their paper and never once looked out the window.

The assigned seating thing rubbed me the wrong way, but it's less of a criticism of the Bergzauber than it is of Germany in general. (If you're misanthropic, book at a larger hotel where seating isn't a problem).
