I guess I'll be the first to post here!
Another trip to the Christmas Markets and another wonderful stay at the Guesthouse Friedwiese in Schonau am Konigssee, which is just a few minutes from Berchtesgaden. We stayed here in late Nov. 2010 and had such a wonderful visit we decided to stay again in late Nov. 2013. The rooms are large, comfortable and spotless. The Friedwiese is set pretty far from the main road (very quiet here) and has gorgeous views of the snow capped peaks. The breakfast is very good and incl. in the room price. What really makes the Friedwiese a special place to stay is Helga Eder, the owner and host. While she can always suggest something to see or do in the area, she is someone who makes you feel at home immediately. Nothing is too much trouble to make your stay more comfortable. While the Friedwiese is an excellent value located in a beautiful, central area for visits to the Berchtesgaden area, Salzburg and even the Salzkammergut, it's Helga that will keep us coming back.
