Skigebiet Winklmoos-Alm/Steinplatte

Reviewed By jacw2000 - Bristol, UK

We skied down into Germany from Waidring, and way down across the border, at the end of the long green run, is the Würstl Alm - the Little Sausage Croft. We sat out in the sun and ate our little sausage. Quite a big sausage actually - I went for the Käsekrainer. The what? Well, it was either that or the Debreziner. The Käsekrainer turned out to be a spicy sausage with cheese. Not hugely spicy, but nice; you could taste the cheese in it.
The place itself is set back slightly from the run. It's an old wooden farmhouse with a window. The troll inside takes your order and it magically appears. There is no attempt here to cater for the usual anglophone ignorance of the German language, but since the menu is limited, you can get by with Wurst and Bier. You might struggle with "Mitgebrachte Speisen und Getränke dürfen hier nicht verzehet werden". It means "No Picnics "
Apparently you can ski on down from here to Reit im Winkl, but it's a long slow road and the snow was already slushy.

Tourist Info Reit im Winkl

Berühmt geworden ist die Winklmoosalm als Heimat der Ski-Olympiasiegern von 1976 Gold- Rosi Mittermaier. Das bei aktiven Wintersportlern weithin bekannte und beliebte Skigebiet hat auch in den drei anderen Jahreszeiten seine besonderen Reize.Die sehenswerte Hochalm, mitten in den Chiemgauer Bergen, liegt auf 1200 m Höhe und ist nur 10 km von Reit im Winkl entfernt. Ein Besuch lohnt sich vor allem wegen der traumhaften Landschaft und wegen des großartigen Panoramas mit Blick auf die Loferer Steinberge (2503 m).Das Almgebiet ist ein Hochplateau zwischen Dürrnbachhorn (1776 m) und der Kammerköhrplatte (1870 m) und somit ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für ausgedehnte Wanderungen, Mountainbike- und Fahrradtouren, aber auch für erholsame Spaziergänge durch ruhige Bergwälder und über sonnige Almwiesen.

Easy to park ( €5 per day ) and easy access to ski hire and beginners slopes. Free buses take you up to slightly more advanced runs. Allow plenty of time to get kitted up in the hire shop. Excellent staff in the Intersport hire shop. Staff good at the kids ski school. Cafe at bottom of slope too. Not a great range of food , but enough to refuel.

Unfortunately we have had quite a few clerical errors, which could have ruined our trip.
Problem 1)
After emailing the company and confirming our date of our lesson, we had a call a week early asking where we were. Rather confused, at home in our pjs, we forwarded the email we sent with the original date and lessons were booked for the day we wanted.
Problem 2)
The email told us to turn up at their town offices at 9 am ( which we did ). We arrived, paid for parking, then were told we were at the wrong location. But hired our equipment here.
Problem 3)
Arrived at car park at 9:45 ( 15 mins before lesson was due). Went to one office. Another wrong Hausberg office, laden with equipment.
Problem 4)
Went to next office. 10:07. We were told we just missed the instructor and he had gone up to the slopes to wait for us.
Problem 5).
Arrive on mountain, approx 10:20. Leave my husband standing by hausberg sign, whilst I walked from place to place asking for help. Eventually found a kind hausberg instructor (time 10:35) who called back to office. No one knew where our instructor was. We had no phone signal, so at 11 we went back down the mountain.
Resolution- the lady (Immie) in the office was kind and really tried her best to resolve the situation. After waiting another 1.5 hours they found another instructor who started our lesson at 13:00.
We were beginners, so if no one turned up, we would have been down €225 and couldn't use our equipment or ski pass- we couldn't ski.
When we went back to return the equipment. I kindly said I was disappointed to which the lady said our instructor waited until 11! LIES! and we had proof - the other instructor. Afternoon lessons are cheaper. We had no refund. No compensation. But more than anything we had apologies from the wrong people. The people that were sorry were not the people that should have been sorry.
Our instructor (Leonie) was lovely and a credit to the company.
Please sort out your organisation. It was quite distressing and tiring.
Glad to be home.

We were staying in the hotel across the street and had read that this was a "must visit place" in town. We went into the place and saw that they had a "display" to explain the distillation process but the primary focus of the place is retail. No one offered to explain the history of the place or the manufacturing process despite speaking German. The only time the staff spoke was to help us select something to purchase. While they did have lovely gift packages, etc., we would have been more inclined to buy something had someone engaged with us to explain anything about the brand and the process. They have to work on their skills in that area.

Alpenfein Genussmanufaktur

Reviewed By Mekkes

Das Alpenfein sieht auf dem ersten Blick wie ein kleiner edler Einkaufsladen aus. Viele Schmankerl aus Tirol und dem Chiemgau. Pestos, Weine, Pasta, und viele Sachen handverlesen und sehr schön präsentiert. Viele schöne Filzprodukte für Handys, Filz-Clipboards oder auch handgefertigte Handtäschchen findet man hier.
Es gibt des Weiteren schmackhaften Kaffee, Espresso, Sekt, Wein und Bier auch im Ausschank.
Doch das richtige Highlight sind Gundis Kochkünste, die sie schon als Gewinnerin beim Perfekten Dinner zeigen konnte. Auf Wunsch kann man mit ca 3 Tagen Vorlauf ein tolle Dinner für sich bestellen. Man kann aus vielen verschiedenen Möglichkeiten aus der Karte wählen. Lassen sie sich überraschen. Kleinigkeiten wie Crustinis gibt es immer :-)
Die Herzlichkeit wird auch sie überwältigen.
PS. Probeiren sie die vielleicht beste heiße Schokolade, oder Glühwein in Reit im Wink.

Wir waren überrascht in Reit im Winkl ein Rock Cafe zu finden, aber es hat sich gelohnt. Man wurde nett aufgenommen; man konnte einfach einen gemütlichen Abend mit lieben Leuten geniessen und Musikwünsche konnte man auch abgeben! Toll!
