Special Mittenwald Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft
Why I like Mittenwald: The typical Bavarian, picturesque climatic spa town Mittenwald is located in the alpine world of the Karvendel Mountain range near the Austrian border. West of the town are the two mountain lakes Lautersee and Ferchensee and the Wettersteingebirge range. The Isar River flows through the Mittenwald town center with its beautiful fresco decorated houses, elegant shops and cafes. For more than 300 years Mittenwald has been famous for the manufacturing of string instruments, and music lovers should be sure to visit the Geigenbaumuseum (Museum of Violin-Making). During the warmer months, walking and hiking opportunities abound in and around Mittenwald, and when the snow falls, indulge in the many winter sport activities such as alpine and cross-country skiing, snow boarding, tobogganing, ice sports, and horse sleigh rides. The Karwendel cable car and the Kranzberg-chair lift bring you to the lofty heights of the mountains. A special adventure not to be missed in any season is the hike in the famous Leutasch Gorge.
These Mittenwald travel tips are compiled by Bettina Kraft. Bettina likes to help visitors from all over the world to experience Germany in a different, more personal way, and make it easy for them to do so by providing detailed travel tips and advise.
Verified & Approved - Quality Mittenwald Vacation Rentals you can Trust!
There is unfortunately a lot of scam and fraud on the Internet today and we read sad stories about families who booked a cheap apartment on a rental site only to find out later when they arrived that this apartment did not even exist! Therefore when you see our LLAG quality seal next to an apartment listing that means that we have verified and approved this particular apartment and you can be assured that this is a good choice when booking this one.
Of course, given our large selection of vacation rentals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland we cannot personally inspect every one of them. However, here is what we do to to ensure overall high quality and minimze the risk of fraud:
First, we are very selective and don't accept apartments of poor quality based on submitted description and photos.
We verify the owner's address, require a web site, and a valid phone number. With many of our property owners we talk with them over the phone on a daily basis and we have built up with them a strong business relationship over the years.
If we experience communication issues with a property owner, e.g. they respond too slowly to inquiries or customer requests, we investigate and possibly cancel our business relationship with that owner. Reason is if we are not able to successfully communicate with an owner, how can we expect that it should work out with a potential tenant?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate (please read our customer testimonials.) However, if a customer reports issues we also immediately investigate. In case of incidents where we believe the quality and overall service of an apartment is no longer up to our standards we also remove that one from our site quickly.
Those quality measures helped us in the past to successfully protect our customers when booking a rental through us. Look for the LLAG quality seal that indicates that we have approved and verified that apartment.
