Hotel Waldesruhe in Oberstdorf

Jump to last reply

Just wanted to let people know of a lovely first-class hotel in the Bavarian Alpine town of Oberstdorf. Hotel Waldesruhe is on a hill overlooking the town and a walking path leads from the hotel to town and the forest and mountains. There is also a bus stop nearby.
The hotel rooms have balconies, color cable TV, boom box with CD player and a small selection of CD's in each room. An honor bar on each floor for drinks, (you write your name and what you took from the frig and it is added to your bill) There is a bar with fireplace and entertainment several times a week. One night was alpine horns and folk music. The restaurant is top-notch with gourmet treats and a buffet evening and multi-course dinner on Saturdays. It cost 25DM or about $12.50USD currently more for half board. Rooms were about $95.USD per night for a double with full buffet breakfast, taxes and service charge. There is a bakery on premises and afternoon coffee and cakes to tempt you. An indoor pool and sauna and small exercise room rounds out the amenities. When we arrived we were greeted with glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice and chocolate truffles and welcome letter was delivered to our room. There is a small elevator so you don't have to struggle with luggage. I would highly recommend this hotel and hope for a return visit soon.
telephone is 8322-6010 from outside Germany, add 0 if calling from within the country, FAX is 8322-601100, same applies to this number also. URL is: http://www.oberallgaeu.de/waldesruhe/
It is located at Alte Walsterstr. 20 and the postal code is 87561.
The town in in southwestern Germany and is the end stop for the Rail line in that direction. Direct trains run several times daily from/to Munich and Intercity trains from northern Germany through Frankfurt also. Oberstdorf is similar to Garmisch but less touristy. The middle of the town is car-free and small electric buses shuttle people around. Downhill skiing at the Nebelhorn as well as ski areas in the Walsertal Valley in Austria just a few miles down the road There is also extensive cross-country, indoor skating complex and indoor pool complex and plenty of walking paths, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, etc.
