Just got back from 2nd trip to Alpenrose and found it great. Knowing the hotel and area a bit better we got more out of the trip this time with our 6 year old daughter.
We took the local Z- ticket which gives you 7 day access to buses, a variety of attractions, cable cars (including 1x Zugspitze trip), swimming pools, cycle rides and much more. We love the Bibervier with its chair lift, luge run and monster rollers. My daughter loves the "Monster rollers" which are like enormous oversized scooters designed for going downhill. Great fun. The luge is about 1 Km long and good fun for children - we did it 6 or more times! note, the luge does not run due to safety when wet. The hotel pool is perfect for young children but older children may want a bit more. Another tip, the open air pool at Lermoos is free with a Z ticket, 5 mins walk away and has stunning views and good water slides for the kids.
I found the staff in Alpenrose hugely friendly - be it our daily chat with the cleaner or the restaurant staff. The mini club staff are the highlight though and they go out of their way to have fun with the kids. I appreciate the specific things they do for individual childrens. I also appreciate that they try to add variety to the programme which during our stay included a theatre group performing a pirate show, a magician and a treasure hunt in the local park.
We used the bikes more this time which are free in the Hotel and you just take as and when you need. They have a variety of bikes, trailers and tandems to suit different family needs. It is really easy to bob out of the hotel to the variety of dedicated cycle paths to the likes Ehrwald or Bibervier. We particularly like cycling to the mini golf in Ehrwald. For young families the paths are great.
We flew into Munich and hired a car. The car rental at MUC airport is easy and it then takes c. 2 hours to get to Lermoos. A pretty easy trip but there can be heavy traffic at peak times. We find having a car useful in the area although last time managed without and simply used the buses which run daily and frequently. Alpenrose is a 5 min walk from the Lermoos station although trains from garmisch are not very frequent.
We find the food very good and enjoy it. As others have commented the childrens buffet means they can help themselves while you eat. We also try to eat outside when we can but you need to remember to request this at breakfast if you want it!
