I've been here twice now and the place is pretty good. Most of the military tourists stay to Garmisch base, so that's a definite plus in my book. The selection is very limited, but they have solid food and good beer. What more do you need?

If you want to have some fun in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, this is THE place to go. Arrive around 8:00, and plan to spend 3 hours here, about $20 on some amazing Bavarian food -- HUGONDOUS portions! -- and another $15 to $20 on beer. As with most Bavarian restaurants, the beer selection is limited -- they serve the two or three brands who subsidize them -- but all are, of course, outstanding: I think this place serves Paulaner and another brewery, although my memory is cloudy.

I agree with taez555 that you MUST try the "bierlikore:" fantastic taste, and 3 or 4 will kick your butt. The music, the "gemutlichkeit" and the atmosphere are simply the best there is in this part of Bavaria.

Relax with a couple of liters, sing some Bavarian songs, and enjoy. What a great place! It's a MUST if you're anywhere within 100 km!

Located in the picturesque town of Partenkirchen in Southern Bavaria along the German alps, the Gasthof Fraundorfer is a guest house owned and opperated by the same family for generations. Part bed and breakfast, part quaint restaurant. I'll be focusing mainly on the restaurant.

The decour is classic german, unchanged for nearly 100 years, it's as if you're stepping into a woodsmans cabin. Knotted pine walls and ceilings covered in pictures, steins, hunting memorabila, even wreaths made of hops. Tables are more of the same with stammtisch tables as well as long tables with chairs or benches where the person sitting next to you might be a stranger(not for long). It's very warm and inviting.

The food is excellent. Homemade classic bavarian dishes of pork, veal, fish, beef, wild game, often served with saurkraut, red cabbage or spatzel.

The beer selection isn't very large, but it doesn't matter. Focusing mostly on Paulaner beers. A half dozen on tap and even more in bottles. I tended to lean towards the half liters of extremely fresh Wiesbeir, mostly dunkel, served in their own glasses with a picture of the Fraundorfer on the glass. Not to mention the fact a half liter will run you less than 3 Euro each. It's cheaper than soda.

A must try is the Fraundorfer signature beirliquor. Order a round of this beer cordial and it'll be served hot on a long wooden ski, in a shot glass topped with whipped cream.

The atmosphere can change nightly depending on the crowd present and their level of involvment. Almost every night they have live accordian music, slapp dancing, yodeling and sing alongs. It's not uncommon to see people getting up on the tables dancing, while passing 3 liter steins around the room. Yet again, it all depends on the crowd and even your own level of involvment.

So get yourself a room for the night, then go downstairs, grab a seat, make friends with your neighbor, eat, drink and sing the night away. The Fraundorfer is a must visit the next time you're in Garmish-Partenkirchen.
