Bräuwastl Gasthof Garmisch Partenkirchen Reviews
Wonderful Gasthof in Garmisch Dec 12, 2008
This is a wonderful little Gasthof in the town of Garmisch. The gasthof is right on the main street in Garmisch, Zugspitzstraße.
It was only €68 a night for a double room, with a German Breakfast included.
This gasthof is in a nice central location, not too far from the main town center and only a short drive to the Eibsee and Austrian border.
The furnishings in the room are basic, nothing too fancy. They only have a heater for winter time, no air conditioner. Rooms 1 and 2 have access to the balcony that overlooks the front of the gasthof and Zugspitzstraße. They have a small TV with cable, but all the channels are in German. Note, just like other gasthofs in Germany, they do not provide shampoo, or soap in the bathroom. We visited in the winter time and when we entered the room (room 2) the heater was off, so it took a little while for the room to warm up. Also you should know that when they clean your room during the day, they usually turn off the heater, so you'll have to turn it on again when you get back.
Every place in Germany has a day they are closed called "Ruhetag", the Bräuwastl's Ruhetag is on Mondays.
Breakfast includes: rolls, meat slices, cheese slices, scrambled eggs, orange juice, and coffee or tea.
They have parking out in front, and they do not charge anything to park your car. They do not have an elevator, only stairs.
On the ground floor, they have a nice little restaurant that serves AMAZING German food. They are only open for evening meals. They also have a happy hour special: 2 for 1 beers. Average menu prices are from €6 to €10 a person. For 2 people our meals, beer and desert came to a little over €22.
The Alpspitzebahn and Kreuzeckbahn gondolas are not too far of a walk from the Gasthof maybe a 15 minute walk. It's €20 round trip per person. You can even ride on up, and hike to the other one and take that one back down. If you go to http://www.zugspitze.de/main_en.php it will give you information on all the gondolas in the area. If you want to walk to the downtown area, it's only a 15 minute walk from the gasthof. For the Americans who want a taste of home, they have a Pizza Hut and McDonald's in downtown Garmisch.
The only draw back was that when we were there, they only accept cash as payment.
Overall, I recommend this gasthof, and think that it's a nice location with out a lot of tourist traffic.
