Sonnenalp Resort
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Ofterschwang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 September 2009

The Sonnenalp is an absolutely fabulous place to stay. The location is beautiful, with Alpine views all around. However, because the area is rural and there are many farms, there may be an odor of manure at times.

The hotel and its rooms are designed and decorated in the Bavarian-Tyrolean style (frankly, I cannot tell the difference) and are well appointed and equipped. The pools are fabulous. The indoor pool is free form and leads to another free form outdoor pool (heated water, of course), and there is an additional large lap pool for the more athletically inclined. The hotel amenities are first-rate, and the staff are uniformly cordial and helpful. The restaurant is superb. We had half-pension and ate so heartily at breakfast that we never bothered with lunch.

This was our second visit to the Sonnenalp and it exceeded all of our already high expectations.

Of course, the Sonnenalp is pricey but in my opinion is well worth the cost.

One tip for golfers: if you choose the Oberallgau course, be sure to reserve a cart. This course is the prototypical mountain course, with huge ups and downs to the terrain. Normally I like to walk a golf course, but the Oberallgau is hard on the legs. When we arrived and saw the terrain, we asked for a golf cart but found that there are not enough carts available for all the golfers and we had not made a reservation. I won’t make that mistake again!
