Overview: hotel description: Alpenhotel Wittelsbach description

Family-run for five generations, the Alpenhotel Wittelsbach has built up an impeccable reputation - not least due to the extremely welcoming ambience provided by the owners The Eismann Family (Marcus, Anya and their daughter Katharina), and their lovely staff. The hotel is continually renovating, never resting on its laurels, which has resulted in an elegant hotel with a touch of sophistication and a serious focus on customer service.

The Wittelsbach has probably the best location possible in Ruhpolding - right in the heart of town, so you're never far away from anything - and it hasn't lost even a smidgen of its charm. The design is all about traditional values and each bedroom is individually decorated with warm colours, wooden furniture and plush beds. The unique styling runs throughout and you'll find plenty of inviting spaces to relax - from the cosy Gillitzer's Chalet Lounge to the newly renovated bar "BARsifal" with lovely views.

If you love a nice cuppa then the Wittelsbach should definitely be on your 'to stay' list. And we're not talking PG Tips - Marcus is one of only a handful of tea masters in the world. He trained on tea plantations in Sri Lanka and now offers over 60 different types of tea in the hotel, from classic English Breakfast to unique herbal infusions. Joining the regular tea ceremony is a must-try if you want to find out more, and you can also buy tins of your favourite blends to take home.

Mealtimes in general are also a treat. The breakfast buffet offers a tempting range of dishes, from fruit and cereal to eggs and pastries. The hard part will be choosing which jams and honeys to try first and, of course, which tea will accompany your meal. If you've got more of a sweet tooth, the creamy hot chocolate is a must. In the evenings, you can expect three courses of delicious Bavarian food, served with a smile.

Just in case you have any allergies, it's worth knowing that there are three resident cats and a brown lab called Benji. They're very friendly, so if you're missing your pets at home then you can still get a cuddle.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.

This village in the Chiemgau Alps is mighty proud of its Bavarian heritage – locals often wear traditional dress and huge amounts of effort are put into preserving older buildings and structures. It’s a beautiful part of the world, with sloping pastures and forested mountains. Churches and chapels are dotted around the valley floor, with St George’s parish church playing focal point and the village centre’s houses decorated with Upper Bavarian frescoes. In the skiing department, there are three sma...
The three small ski areas include the slopes of Unternberg, Westernberg and Maiergschwendt. There’s also the bigger Winklmoos-Steinplatte ski area a short drive or bus ride away. Unternberg has a red and blue run from the midstation, with a long red trailing down from Unterberg Alm at 1417m. The crystal piste is an FIS slalom slope, 628m long. Westernberg has a short beginner run, and Maiergschwendt has a kilometre-long blue. The nearest proper downhill ski area is Winklmoos-Steinplatte, which has 16 ...
The après ski is far tamer than the big alpine resorts – here it’s more about friendly, authentic watering holes. Raffner Alm hosts traditional Bavarian evenings with live music and Jeannette and Dirk are known for their band nights at the Holzstube. Don’t miss out on a Glühwein around the fire at Stachus Bar 57, which is right in the middle of the village. Restaurant-wise, Janos has a menu in English which is always handy – choose between pizzas and Hungarian dishes. Bellevue on the edge of the villa...
