Welcome at Alpenhof Murnau, Bavaria. Here directly at the Staffelsee, where they also say “blue country”, nature has a grandiose appearance, because in the sky, the lakes as well as the chain of the Alps on the horizon the colour blue dominates. But also, the moors, meadows and forests between Murnau and Kochel show themselves in picturesque tones. It is therefore not surprising that famous artists like Franz Marc or Wassily Kandinsky were magically attracted by this idyll. So, Marc (whose favourite colour was blue) invented the name “The blue country" for his adopted country, which is still known for its natural beauty even beyond the borders of Bavaria.
In a total of 104 rooms, guests will find oases of peace and quietness furnished in the form of double rooms, junior suites, suites and family rooms made of high-quality materials and stylish accessories. The greatest pleasure of our hosts Christian and Elke Bär is to make your stay a 5-star experience and to make you feel home far away from home. As a native of Murnau, the hotel manager knows the secrets and special features of the area and is happy to share these with his interested hotel guests.
Our guests can also expect a lot on the culinary side. Our Chef Claus Gromotka loves to combine regional specialities with international products. Local, refined – and made for gourmet lovers with a sense for something special. With his creativity and his sense of quality he was also able to convince Gault Millau. The newly invented, fine but down-to-earth cuisine of our Chef was awarded two toques and 15 points. He has perfectioned the “new Bavarian cuisine” which is being appreciated by more and more foodies who prefer the local products from the region.
We would also like to mention another highlight at Alpenhof Murnau. For special moments the two chalets "Alpenhof Alm" and "die alte Blockhütte" can be rented exclusively. There is room for celebrations, which can be arranged individually with a special Alpine flair.
Active holidaymakers get their money's worth around the Alpenhof Murnau: Depending on the season and requirements, there are a lot of sporting adventures waiting for them in the blue country and the Zugspitze region, which are so varied that it will not be boring at any fitness level. Whether hiking in the Alps, a bike tour around the Staffelsee, a visit to the Franz Marc Museum or feasting in the chocolate factory - Murnau and its cultivated landscape in the middle of the Upper Bavarian Pre-Alps is an ideal starting point for all activities. In addition, we are happy to recommend one of the 10 challenging golf courses within a radius of 50 km in the beautiful foothills of the Alps.
And because an active holiday without a wellness area would only be half as nice, the feeling of well-being at Alpenhof Murnau has its own name: Yavanna - that's the name of the 1000qm wellness and spa area, where body and soul can come to rest. The natural powers of fire and water unfold their full effect here and round off the day in an optimal way.
