Hi Bees. My husband and I are planning to spend a couple of nights in the Bavarian Alps during our honeymoon. We’re thinking of staying in Garmisch-Partenkirchen because it has a lot of hotel options, and it’s close to Zugspitze (I want to ride the train/cable car to the top!). Anyway, have any of you ever been? Do you have any hotel recommendations or any recommendations at all? GH and I have been reading a bunch of reviews on tripadvisor, but we still haven’t decided on a hotel. We’re looking to spend between $100 and $150 a night (check in on Wed, check out on Fri).
We’re also willing to stay in another town, even in Austria, as long as it’s 1) easy to get to by train from Munich 2) close to the mountain

Have you checked tripadvisor.com? I swear by their hotel reviews. Good luck!

@texasmeredith: We’ve been scouring tripadvisor. That’s where we’ve found most of our hotels so far. I was just wondering if anyone on the Bee had any recommendations.

I honeymooned in Germany & Czech Republic. While we didn’t go to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, we did stay in Hohenschwangau for a couple of nights (where “Mad” King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein castle is located). For that portion of the trip we rented a car (husband loved driving on the AutoBahn!), so that we were able to explore the area a bit before returning to Munich. Depending on your time & budget, you might want to consider a car rental.
