Next to the cable car to Winklmoosalm/Steinplatte ski area and with the cross country trails in front of the house.

Our hotel is situated in the middle of Chiemgau, in Seegatterl, just on the border of the Luftkurort Reit im Winkl. In this nature paradise our Bed and Breakfast lies just at the foot of Winklmoosalm, 100 meter from the cable car connecting to the family friendly skiing area Steinplatte/Winklmoosalm. Both summer and winter our location offers an unique combination of "just-outside-the-door" accessible activities in this beautiful landscape. Our rooms and apartments are well maintained and of high quality standards. You can have a beer or a warm "Glögg" either in our cosy "Bauernstube" or outside on our sunny veranda alongside the stream. We speak German, English and Swedish and we are glad to help out with any arrangement, e.g. green fees, tickets or anything to make the most of your stay with us.
Our location:
  • The Winklmoos/Steinplatte cable car is just beside us
  • Direct access to the best cross country area in Chiemgau
  • Starting point for plenty of touring ski and snowshoe trails

Have a beer, a cup of coffee and try one of our waffles, the best in Chiemgau!

Between 12:00 and 17:00 our waffle house, our Biergarten and café is open. At least when the weather permits and often also when not. We serve waffles made from an old genuine family recipe originating from the German waffle nest, Bergisches Land. The beer we get from Hofbräuhaus Traunstein or from Camba Bavaria. The coffee we make either French or Italian style and it tastes delicious!
  • Hearty: Either with smoked salmon, fried bacon or fried onion/champions, or as pizza waffle. Served with a tasty dip sauce, lingonberries or crème fraîche.
  • Sweet: With icing sugar, warm sour cherries, warm berries or canned pears. Top with ice and/or whipped cream.
  • Beer: Light and dark lager, pilsner, light and dark weizen and different ales and stouts.
  • We also have the bar full of stuff like whiskey, cognacs, snaps, liqueurs etcetera. Soda and different non-alcoholic beverages of course. With some effort we might even be able to mix you a drink.

Endless cross country and winter walking along valleys and up on the mountains

We are perfectly situated just between Ruhpolding and Reit Im Winkl with Winklmoosalm connecting us with Austria. The cross country adventure starts outside the door and will take you as far as your plans goes. Either you go through the valley via the lakes Weitsee, Mittersee and Lödensee and the Chiemgau arena to Ruhpolding, via Winklmoosalm to Unken and Heutal in Austria, via Nattersbergalm to Hemmersuppenalm or along the stream to Reit im Winkl. Not far away the possibilities continues in Kaiserwinkl and Pillerssetal, but to here you need to take the car or the bus. The many cross country and winter hiking trails are beautifully laid out and always properly prepared and groomed for both classic and skating.

Fantastic routes for ski touring and snowshoe hiking

For us who prefer walking uphill and ski/walk more peacefully, there are many alternatives available for ski touring and snowshoe hiking. Directly outside our house four popular tours start; the one to Dürrnbachhorn, the one to Straubinger Haus/Fellhorn, the one to Steinplatte and the somewhat longer to Sonntagshorn.

We are located in the centre of the Bavarian alps in a region called Chiemgau. The nature is overwhelming and has a lot to offer to all outdoor active people.

The winter is among the snow richest there is and the alps here are known for combining affordable family friendly alpine skiing with well prepared cross country for both classic and skating technique.

During the snow free months are hiking, bicycling (MTB) and golf the big attractions. The number of golf courses, trekking- and bicycling trails is tremendous. The mountains around us reaches around 2000 meters and are all accessible with reasonable effort. Together with the lakes, the meadows and pastures, the richness of flowers, these mountains leave no one unmoved.

At walking distance from our house you will find the closest lake, a tiny gorgeous alp lake squeezed in between the mountains. After it follows even more and together they give cross country skiers, bicyclist and trekkers a marvellous experience of the nature around. Further away, about 30 minutes with car, is Chiemsee. This big lake is a tourist magnet summertime and a given destination to visit with all its water attractions. If lakes are your passion you will find beautiful Walchsee at the same distance but in Austria, and then there is the Salzkammergut area near Salzburg with lots of small lakes.

The area is full of castles and châteaus, many of which you can visit. Not far away is e.g. the fortress city Kufstein, on the island in Chiemsee Herrenchiemsee, Hohensalzburg of course, Scloss Hellbrunn and many more. Salzburg is situated b.t.w. not more than 50 minutes away. Mozart-museum and old town - the barock town holding the Salzburgs cathedral and the Mirabelle garden, are obvious must-see-places here, also Hitlers eagles nest in Berchtesgaden is impressing.

Then there are a lot of other activities to be found close by, like spa/bath, adventure parks, skating arenas etc. enjoyable for the whole family.
