We arrived and were immediately greeted by the owners in a manner resembling those incredible visits to my grandmother's large house in my youth. Upon entry in the late afternoon, we were surrounded by the redolence of a sumptuous feast, which we later learned was the usual evening fare, which to us was unusual in the number of rich offerings of the German hunt.
Our room was terrific, with a balcony, which gave us personal access to the Bavarian Alps. We were informed by the staff that our spacious lodgings were usually reserved for a regular visitor, who had given up his lodgings, without our knowledge, so we could occupy them. Such is the incredible generosity of the Bavarians in general and Herr Bernd S. in particular.
Be sure to ask the owners about enjoying a special taste of the spirit of the mountains and ask for a tiny glass to enable you to do so.
Following dinner, over dessert and an aperitif of your choice (I have learned through bitter experience to avoid Grappa), ask one of the owners to speak about the history and activities of the mythical Wolpertingers, who are said to inhabit the deepest of the Alpine forests and are occasionally seen in the Schlossanger Alp environs, according to locals.
In closing, the Berghotel Schlossanger Alp is a real gem, nestled in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, with views galore, fantastic service, an amazing choice of the finest Bavarian cuisine, with sufficient offerings for the children.
