We didn't know what to expect but the apartment was perfect. Super clean, friendly host, comfy bed and the kitchen stocked perfectly. We would defiantly stay here again! Thanks Manuela

The three very spacious bedrooms were more than adequate for our family of six and served to make our holiday very comfortable, particularly as our children are now between 17 and 22 years so needed the privacy of their own rooms and good sized beds. The kitchen and shower room were clean and had good facilities. The living/dining room was comfortable and large enough for the six of us. We visited the Neuschwanstein Castle, it is spectacular and well worth the trip. We also visited Oberjoch and Nesselwang ski slopes, the views are stunning. We had two meals in a very traditional German restaurant called Zum Hirsch, the service was first class, the people very friendly and the food of a very high standard. I would highly recommend this accommodation and the location.

It is a large apartment with plenty of room for 4 people. There's nice furniture and big comfy beds and everything is very clean. The view is amazing with the 2 castles and mountains in the distance. The apartment is in a quiet area, away from the busy tourist area around the castles. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. There are loads of things to see and do. We hired bikes and rode around the lake (bikes can be kept in the garage if you hire them for a few days), visited the castles, took the cable car to the top of Mount Tegelberg (amazing view from the top), rode the Tegelbergbahn toboggan run (great fun for us and the kids), visited Munich and Augsburg (approximately 2 hours by car) and visited Fussen and walked across the Austrian border. My only suggestion to the owner would be to supply 2 fans that could be used in the bedrooms at night. With 2 bedrooms and 1 fan it was hard to cool down. It gets very hot in the summer! Cornelia, who met us when we arrived, was very helpful and gave us some ideas of things to do and places to eat. She was also just a phone call away if we had any problems. We loved our time staying in Birkeneck 2. It is a lovely apartment in a wonderful place and we'll definitely be back.
