Hotel Kleiner Konig
Ranked #9 of 16 Hotels in Schwangau
Reviewed 23 August 2017

Excellent service! The rooms were clean, wonderfully decorated. There was a kettle and coffee in the rooms, small fridge + shower gel and soup.
The staff is VERY friendly! Breakfast is awesome!
Not far away from the castles. Nature is wonderful out there. I liked it a lot.

Our room (12) was large, comfy and airy. It was something like being in your own home but in Bavaria. The family members that run the Kleiner Konig are friendly, basically conversant in English, and helpful with restaurant suggestions, walks, and things to do in the area (besides the obvious castle exploring). Breakfast is very good and substantial enough to sustain one for the first half of the day with eggs and fresh breads and pastries and yogurts and fruits and cheeses and meats. As you would expect in rural Germany, Kleiner Konig is impeccably clean and kept up. The hotel, really more bed and breakfast, is about 5 minutes drive from Fussen and about the same from Neuschwanstein castle. Without the castles this area would probably only receive very light and mostly domestic tourism, but with the castles it can seem suffocating during the day as planet earth descends from the buses. Fortunately there are actually plenty of other reasons to give the area a couple of days including hiking, biking, walking, the lakes, the countryside, and Fussen itself. My daughter and I took a lovely jog along the bike/walk path that is just outside the hotel and ended up beside one of those lakes. It was a beautiful way to start the morning before the onslaught of the tour buses. Because of Neuschwanstein the checklist tourism is on full display here during the day. Do yourself a favor, whether you come in on train or car, stay the evening and catch the sights with fewer people. The castle is best either first thing in the morning when it all opens up or late afternoon when the residual of the invasion is still around, but is rapidly diminishing and racing for the tour busses. By seeing it at those times (and you can get your tickets online if you want to go inside the castles... but honestly it is the outside and the dramatic setting that is the draw and unless you have never seen the inside of a castle I would skip it in favor of hiking the trails or wandering the countryside) you might get to have some time where your primary activity is not trying to get a photo without a bunch of other people in it, or tripping over the ice cream licking hordes. If you give this area an overnighter rather than a quick hit-and-run from Munchen you will get to feel the calmer, softer, slower character of southern Germany with the awesome beauty of the Alpine foothills, grassy fields and farmlands, and rich blue lakes that wiser German tourists come here to enjoy. Away from the castles this is terrific location to slow down a little. (On the way to get gas in the early morning "traffic," three cars, I was stopped as a herd of cattle crossed the road in town and strolled out to pasture.)

Room Tip: No elevator so book in advance if yo need a bottom floor room

This is a lively hotel on the outskirts of Schwangau in a place called Horn.
When we booked in we were greeted by two delightful young ladies that treated us like V.I.P's! They were fun and welcoming and after a chat about the reason for our holiday (joint anniversaries) they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine.
The rooms were large with great balconies affording the best views across the mountains and to the nearby castles.
We enjoyed a few drinks on our balcony, from the honesty bar, while listening to the sounds of the cow bells in the fields opposite. It was so peaceful.
The decor is basic but the room and large well appointed bathroom was absolutely spotless! With some lovely quirky little touches you will have to find if you visit :)
We were a bit surprised by the very large mirror on the ceiling above the bed!! :)
It was only a short walk to our chosen restaurant for the night so worked out well.
Breakfast was continental buffet style and had all you could want.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely use again!

We stayed at fhe Kleiner Konig during our visit to Schwangau to see the Castles. Daniella and staff were so wonderful and friendly, and the food choices for the buffet breakfast were so plentiful and fresh! She kept coming out with more and more good food! The dining room was so cute. Our room had a terrace and large bay window that overlooked the mountains and fields of cows. It was quaint to hear them lowing and the cowbells. It also appeared to have a banquet/bar area but it was not open while we were there. From the front yard you could see the castles on the mountain in the distance and it was a 5 minute drive to Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. It was a 25 minutes drive to the Hopfansee and Daniella recommmended places for us to go to eat. The Crystal Therme was the next street over. With such a convenient location, great people, comfy affordable room we highly recommend and hope to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the corner terrace.

Stayed here one night while seeing the castles. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom large and a great shower. The mirror on the ceiling in the bedroom an interesting touch. Staff was helpful when we needed to rush over to the castle ticket booth. Breakfast was good, typical German but good. Quirky building, a dentist office in the hotel. Good parking, no wifi, front desk closes ar 6:00 pm.
