I am going to take my family to Germany over Christmas. Myself, wife, and 2 children 4 & 7. I have decided that Garmisch would be a good place to stay since most of Germany will be shutdown from mid-day on the 24th through the 26th. Garmisch offers a good chance for snow, ski slopes will be open, as well as the lifts to the Zugspitze. I believe that ice skating and tobogganing will be open as well. What I am interested in finding is a place to stay, and would love for it to offer a package that includes a Christmas Eve dinner and some sort of festivities or something special for the kids. I would also like to have a nice meal on Christmas day, and anything else in a package to make this Christmas a memorable experience, sleigh ride, Christmas singing, music, social activity etc. If anyone has gone or lives in the area that knows of a place that does something like this can you make a recommendation? If there are no recommendations on a package I can search around and find a place to stay maybe some good recommendations on good places that will offer Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners.
Try the above hotel. Not sure what they do for Christmas but they would be worth emailing to check.
Have you stayed at this property?
Yes, but not at Christmas. If you want a broader feel for the property look at the reviews on booking.com
I an not sure what your budget is either as that may be a factor.
This review was posted on the Germany site earlier this year. It sounds interesting. You could contact the original poster for more info.
mph, thanks for the suggestion. This place looks nice. t does have some pretty stark reviews. It seems people really loved it or hated it. I will keep it in mind though. I should call and ask them about dinners.
Carol, This place looks really nice but it has a 6 night min stay so it looks to be unavaliable to me. It also has 2 of the nights I need booked already :(
Just be aware... many lodgings in ski resort towns have minimum stay obligations over the Christmas break.
I can only suggest you call here for local recommendations.
That last hotel recommendation, Edelweiss, is for active duty service members only.
Take a look on Trip Advisor for Garmisch. You are sure to find some hotels with Christmas offers.
I suggested Edelweiss as a place for recommendations, not a place to stay for non-military, There are english speaking Local Nationals and of course US that live in Garmisch-Partenkirchen that work there. Just a suggestion and I do not want to burden them or cause confusion.
