The Romantik Alpenhotel Waxenstein is committed to ever detail of hospitality! It shows in every aspect from the beautiful dining rooms, to the lovely rooms and the relaxing spa.

We spent four days half-board at this hotel. It is tucked away near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It is very clean, family run hotel. Staff are friendly and accommodating. South view rooms have views of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. I do not think that the hotel have too many English speaking guests. Menus need to be deciphered for dinner. The food is...

The reservation process went very smoothly and the hotel even called back to clarify an open point in the reservation. Getting there was easy, the staff was very welcoming and charming. The room was equipped as described and we loved the little angels over the beds. It was a nice romantic decoration. The weather was, unfortunately, awful and we had... More

Highly recommended! The hotel is located in Grainau which is about a 5 minute drive from the Garmisch-Partenkirchen town center and another 5 minute drive in the opposite direction to Lake Eisbee and the transportation area to the Zugspitze peak. So the hotel is in the middle of these two points of interest. To get to the peak you have... More

Excellent food (half pension formula), good breakfast choice. Nice rooms, but traditional style. Very friendly staff. One minor remark: the music in the dining and breakfast room was nice but always the same during our 2 days stay (4 meals). Furthermore, it is not very pleasant to start your day with music like 'boulevard of broken dreams' and 'cry me... More
