Haus Ludwig has a great location right in the heart of the charming Old Town of Partenkirchen in the historic Ludwigstrasse famous for its beautiful traditional houses decorated with alpine painted scenes or "Luftmalerei". This was originally part of a Roman Road which linked Munich with Innsbruck and then onto Italy over the Alps.
The long winding street is home to the best Bavarian bars, art shops and restaurants, many with traditional Bavarian music and dancing. There are also great Italian, Turkish and Indian restaurants for variety. Cafes, a butchers, cake shops-Konditorei-, several bakers, gelateria, a fishmongers, a greengrocers, a supermarket and an Irish Pub and apres ski clubs, just down the road. We have have a ti ny local cinema. Plus bike rental, ski and snowboard shops, two catholic churches.
There is a weekly farmers market on Thursday mornings and often local parades and processions will go by the house. A breakfast buffet can be enjoyed every morning from 7am over the road at a local hotel should you get in too late to go to the supermarket.
The apartments are however are located in a quiet part of the street next to banks and the large sun terraces are on the side of the building facing the mountains and are really peaceful. Though my friend does run a specialist Bavarian craft beer boutique, the Bieraterie, under the apartments it is only for off site consumption! Qualified Bavarian and German Beer Sommelier hosted tastings and evenings available in the apartments on request!
Lovingly renovated in 2017- 2018, with a modern nod to the eccentric last King of Bavaria, Ludwig the Second, the house is composed of three large family friendly holiday apartments. Apartment Murmeltier ( Marmotte) is on the ground floor and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as does Apartment Steinwild ( Alpine Ibex) on the first floor above. The largest Apartment Roter Hirsch ( Red Stag) has seven bedrooms and and is spread over the second and third floors. All have great south facing terraces with panoramic views over the rooftops of Partenkirchen and the Karwendel and Wetterstein and Zugspitze ranges. The ski slopes can be viewed from the house.
The apartments can be rented separately or all together subject to availability to contain large groups of up to 42 guests. Do email me through clicking on the Booking button on the website with your personal requirements, so we can decide which option would suit your group best..Wheelchair access is only possible in the ground floor apartment. Children, babies and dogs are very welcome.
Haus Ludwig is fantastically central and yet also quiet in the evenings. The covered terraces with ample seating are situated at the back, south facing side of the house. All have great views over the rooftops of the Old Town with the whole mountain range of the Zugpitze in the background and as they are covered, can be enjoyed whatever the weather.
We do provide off street parking at the rear of the building. A car is not always necessary however, as the Deutsche Bahn main train station and the Zugspitzbahn are just a 10 minute walk and there are bus stops within 30 metres at St Sebastian"s Church. There are free local bus passes for all guests.
Great hiking, biking and snowshoeing trails start just along the Ludwigstrasse and it is only a 10 minute walk to the Wank Cable car and a 5 minute drive or bus to the Eckbauer and Hausberg lifts and the ski jumping stadium.
There is a heated ski cellar and boot room, as well as a free laundry facility with washer and drier for guests use.
Of course bed linens and towels are supplied at no extra cost. We do all our own laundry and use only 100% cotton sheets. Pillows and duvets are all hypoallergenic. The bathrooms are all new in 2018 and rather luxurious..
GaPa guest passes are part of the city taxes included in the price. With these every guest receives a free local bus pass- including a new bus route to Reutte in the Austrian tyrol, a free entrance to the local wave pool open in summer and winter and discounts on entrance to local sites such as the Partnach Gorge and local museums- one of which, the Werdenfelser local history museum is located just along the street.
