Special Seehausen am Staffelsee Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft
Why I like Seehausen am Staffelsee: Located on the eastern shore of Staffelsee Lake, Seehausen am Staffelsee is situated in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district in southern Bavaria. According to the anti-Nazi, Austrian-Hungarian writer Ödön von Horváth, Seehausen am Staffelsee "is the loveliest place on the northern edge of the Bavarian Alps." Praise indeed for such a beautiful part of the world! This old fishing village is known for its historic farmhouses with painted scenes on their facades. Popular activities in and around Seehausen am Staffelsee include hiking, swimming, fishing, and water sports. Between April and October, boat trips can be taken on the MS Seehausen between the piers at Seehausen, Uffing, and Achele. Water lovers are sure to enjoy the 300-meter long beach area. Water slides, recreational islands, and mini-golf courses provide entertaining variety for the young and young-at-heart. Visitors to Seehausen am Staffelsee also make ample use of the opportunities to rent sail boats, surf boards, row boats, pedal boats, and motor boats. If you need a break from the water, take advantage of the 14 miles of hiking paths around the town. In the winter, ice skating, hockey, skiing, and snow boarding are popular pastimes around here. In terms of cultural activities, there is a local history museum in town, and neighboring Murnau offers beautifully restored historic houses, restaurants, boutiques, a castle museum, and a museum featuring the art of Wassily Kandinsky. If you are interested in a day trip to a larger city, avail yourself of the good rail connections to both Munich (45 miles north) and Innsbruck (55 miles south).

Verified & Approved - Quality Seehausen am Staffelsee 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.
