“We felt we were closer to Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Absolutely loved the resort and amenities. We enjoyed the day trips, blue sky, fresh air, and beautiful flowers! We visited after my son returned from Iraq and had a lovely time as a family. We are looking forward to returning to Edelweiss!!!

Room Tip: Request a view of Zugspiz!!

We absolutely love that you "absolutely loved the Resort". What a great place to get together with your son after returning from Iraq. That must have been a really special time for the family.

Recently stayed at this resort for 3 days with my family. We stayed in one of the suites. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. All appliances and equipment in the room functioned properly. Room had a safe for locking valuables. Internet was not working initially because a converter in the room was missing. Staff for the most part was very polite and helpful. Nice pool and outdoor hot tub. Adequate fitness facility. Did not eat in the restaurant, so cannot comment on the food quality. Underground parking garage - nice when pouring down rain. Overall very satisfied with the quality for the price paid. Would definitely go back for another stay at this resort hotel.

We stayed at this resort for the weekend with our friends who are a military family based in Germany. The resort was neat, but apparently, there were no rooms at the actual resort due to a military ball that weekend. (there were probably many more couples in that weekend but this is a family resort with kids everywhere - if you want a quiet romantic night away from kids I would suggest a hotel in town)
So we were able to book deluxe cabins for the weekend. We rented two separate cabins - they are a family of six and we are a family of three. The cabins were nice - they have wi fi in the cabin so we could always stay in touch. The bed was a bit odd - as it seems to be a single and double bed put together to make a queen - but that is fairly typical in Europe - I just wasn't expecting it at an "American" hotel/cabin. They have a nice playground at the cabin for the children.
We ate at Pullmans one night - the food was ok. The wait was extremely disappointing. It was 8:00 pm when we arrived at the hotel and they did not look busy at all. Yet, we had to wait for 1/2 hour to be seated at two separate tables -which was ok. But we also had a sleeping baby with us which they saw when they said they could split us in two tables if we waited a half hour. When we arrived at the table, they said we could not have the stroller next to/adjacent/behind or in between our seats - so we had to take the sleeping baby out of the stroller and attempt to eat with her while she slept on our lap. Food was ok, but we were not compelled to go back a second time.
We did make reservations for Ziggy's the following night. However, we tried to call and change the reservations and we could not get through to the hotel or the restaurant no matter how many times we pressed "0" for the operator we were kept in a continual loop of automated prompts with no one picking up the phone!!! So, we missed our reservation and ate elsewhere that evening.
The hotel has great proximity to all the major attractions in the area. We used the pool before we left and the locker room facilities were nice, despite running out of towels.
you should know that the towns in the area are basically closed on Sundays - so if you want to do sight seeing and shopping its best to go on Saturday otherwise you'll be out of luck. Restaurants in the tourist areas are open and we had a delightful lunch in Garmisch.

Thanks for reviewing our cabins. It was a great gesture by the VFW to help provide WIFI free of charge in the cabins. We now also allow dogs so you can really enjoy a neat vacation in the Alps. Sorry for not meeting your expectations at our restaurants. We now have a new Food and Beverage Director and Executive Chef and our guests are saying good things.

The only thing I don't like about this place is that prices are based on paygrade; however, they do offer a lot of opportunities to save money with "special" deals throughout the year. The location and views, and staff are AMAZING! My family and I initially began coming here as part of our unit activities, but that eventually changed because of the amount of activities available we realized we were going to start having to pay out of pocket in order to do everything we wanted (being with your unit can severely restrict your timeline). Ensure to take advantage of the Alpine Adventures Vacation Planning options, and get the steak at the Pullman Place atleast once! My kids love this place and my wife and I love this place, It is truly a magical place seated at the base of the Greatest Mountain in Germany!

Room Tip: Schedule your vacation activities when you reserve your room.

This experience was our second at Edelweiss and was better than the first. We enjoyed a nice room with a wonderful view. The staff was very helpful with providing a crib, sheets, 2 blankets for the baby and a diaper pail. Swimming pool was nice with wonderful locker room too, laundry facility on site, a few restaurants to choose from at the resort if you choose not to venture out one night.

My second stay at this lovely hotel, very pleased with reception and room. Weather turned out good with highlights how beautiful this place is. Ideal location with a short stroll to town that itself is very friendly. Breakfast is extremely good and cater for all international customers. We also travelled with a small dog and this was not a problem.
The staff are very warm and attend to everything you need. Will be staying again.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms open up to the well maintained garden.

I spent two lovely weeks here and plan to return again sometime soon. I felt really comfortable and at home in this friendly resort in the Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The rooms were spotlessly clean and a very good size. Once the door was shut it was very quiet, despite what other reviewers said. After 10 pm. hardly anyone was making alot of noise. Around that time they ordered people out of the pool area so it became even quieter. Breakfasts at the buffet were very good and superior to what is served at the Marriott and most other good hotels'. The trips on offer gave a wonderful in depth view of Bavaria and it's surrounding countryside and towns'. I would highly recommend this for anyone with military affiliation who plans a trip to the area. Next year I am thinking of trying out the Shades of Green Resort in Florida at Walt Disney World when I go to visit EPCOT center.

You really must have gotten a taste for the area staying here two weeks. And how wonderful that even after staying here two weeks you want to "return again sometime soon." Thanks for your review, when you come back your room will be ready!
