Fodor's Review

It's worth the 7-km (4½-mi) drive eastward to Grainau just to spend a night or a few at the delightful Waxenstein. The rooms are generous in size, with luxurious bathrooms. Furnishings combine Bavarian rustic with flights of fancy. The restaurant ($$) provides a breathtaking view of the Zugspitze, but the excellent food will keep you occupied, from the crispy bread to dishes such as gnocchi in ginger-pumpkin sauce, or veal fillet with foie gras.
