A fantastic apartment - comfortable, well equipped, peaceful.

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Josefstal, Neuhaus. The apartment is really comfortable and beautifully clean. It's lovely to sit on the balcony and look at the fabulous view. We did some amazing hikes from the apartment, enjoyed cycling around and swimming in the lake and had great fun getting the chair lift up to the local ski resort and mountain karting down. There are some good restaurants near the apartment and a lovely playground. We got the train from the local station (2km from the apartment) into Munich - very easy and a good day out. Thanks for a super holiday!
