“Perfect accomodation for our family of 4, very comfortable!”

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday in Schwangau. We stayed 5 nights in apartment 2 on first level as a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children 7 & 11). Cornelia was delightful, very friendly, greeted us in English, and gave us plenty of local knowledge. The beds were great and the kitchen well equipped. The lounge room was a bit small, but didn't bother us as we were out most of the time, the bedrooms were a good size. There is a shared laundry with washing machine, dryer, and iron. The views of the castles from the bedroom windows were beautiful. This accommodation is a short distance from town, we enjoyed that it wasn't right in town, it was peaceful. There are 2 supermarkets in town, the closest is about a 10 - 15 minute walk, the larger supermarket about 20-25 minute walk. We caught a train from Munich, then taxi to apartment. Then we hired bikes from Todos in the main street and got around that way (not sure how bikes would go in snow, you will need to check, we returned them before it snowed). Hotel Steiger is a great place to eat, and walking distance from accommodation. We took a taxi to the castle ticket office from the apartment for 12 Euros. It's worth learning a few German phrases, however we found local people to be very friendly and understanding if we explained our German was not good. You will mostly need to pay for things in cash too. There is a bank with ATM in the main street (near supermarket). Great holiday, loved it!

“Birkeneck 2”

Hard to fault the accommodation Apartment 2 is on the first floor with a balcony down the whole side of the house with access from the lounge, kitchen and master bedroom. plenty of furniture for all who stay to take in the Bavarian air and views of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles (even though they are several kilometres away) never the less an good pair of binos does the trick. Two bathrooms neither are en-suite but who cares, one with bath and shower and the other just a shower. Master bedroom is large with four poster bed, don't get your hopes up... it does have four posts though.

The kitchen is well equipped and we certainly did not require more.... trouble is there are so many great eating places on the doorstep... I can recommend Hotel Steiger (150 metres away).

The Froggensee is minutes away easily accessible along the most magnificent networks of paths and cycle ways... take a bike or hire, they can be safely stored in the garage attached to the property which is a shared facility with the other two apartments.

We were contacted several time by the owners agent Cornelia who also met us on arrival, and took great care to explain everything, and also an introduction to other attractions nearby, well with listening to and taking notes.

No negatives for us perhaps a couple of niggles, one of which is there are multiple signs around the apartment designed to protect the owners property and other guests, only written in English, I can't believe the Brits are the only ones likely to flush undesirables down the loo!!!!

Overall this is an exceptional property in an ideal place to enjoy Allgau at any time of the year.

We loved our family stay at Birkeneck. We had the 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment. Living room is small, but comfortable. Bedrooms and bathrooms are good sized. Kitchen was well equipped. Cornelia was very easy to work with and punctual at check-in and check-out. After being in hotels, it was great to spread out and do laundry. Location can't be beat for visiting Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. (Found listing on VRBO)
