We stayed here for 2 nights and had a fantastic time. The hosts were great; we were picked up from the station on the evening we arrived, were given tips about the best places to go walking and were allowed to leave our bags there on the day we left. The house was great too, the bedroom was cosy and...

We enjoyed our stay (3 nights) at Haus Karl's Ruh. Breakfast was good, the room was very clean and service was good. Gary and Evelyn are very kind and flexible. There's a special room for the ski equipment. The shower was good :) It is easy to walk to the restaurants (Holzerstub'n is a very good one).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Haus Karl's Ruh is a small family run guest house in Ehrwald in the Austrian Tirol.We are located in the heart of the village, 5 minutes walk from the village centre & ski lifts, with the panoramic Wetterstein Range as our backdrop. The house was handed down to us by my Uncle & so we have an in depth knowledge of the village & the surrounding areas. Due to our location within the Zugspitz Arena we are an excellent base for walkers & climbers during in the summer months & ski/snowboard enthusiasts in the winter. The Bavarian castles of King Ludwig, Schloss Neuschwanstein & Schloss Linderhof, are 40 minutes drive away. Munich is within easy reach either by train or car & we are ideally placed for beer enthusiasts wanting to visit the 'Oktober Fest'. Innsbruck is a 50 minute drive away & Italy & Switzerland are also within driving distance. ... more   less
