It was our first time in Oberstaufen and did not know what to expect. We were very positively surprised. The village center is just a 10 min walk from the hotel and is very cute, with nice shops of all kinds, nice restaurants. The hotel itself was perfect for our purpose. Nice big family room were we stayed with our 2 sons of 8 and 11. The extra double bed could be easily hidden away, under the main bed, which made the room very spacious during the day. All facilities available in the room. The kids liked a lot the DVD player to watch a nice movie after a cold day on the ski slopes. Nice swimming pool with sauna which is all kept very clean and is open pratically all day until late in the evening. The personal in the hotel was very helpful and you can really feel the "family run" mentality. Breakfast is served in the morning as of 08.00 in a nice spacious room with lot's of choice. It's a 20 min drive to the Steibis skislopes. The skiing area was a bit dissappointing, when you are used to the "Dolomites", however it was still a nice experience as second skiing holiday. Especially budgetwise as the skipass is included for the full family in the hotelprice. During Carnaval holiday there were lot's of people, so very long queues on the skilifts, several old anchor lifts which with kids are not always easy to take. However the Hoghgratbahn is really worth a visit with it's super long and beautiful skislope. Oberstaufen is nice alternative for people coming from Belgium who want to ski and do not feel like driving 1000 km, from Brussels it just took us a 7 hours drive to get to destination. Almost forget to tell about the lovely Aquaria experience (entrance for free with skipass): a big complex with swimming pools, sauna's, and all that goes with it in the center of Oberstaufen. Lovely for old and young. Our kids loved it.
