Here is Bernadette's Feedback:

Beautiful spacious apartment in super convenient location

Christine Biersach was a friendly, helpful source of information to us, and her apartment house was lovely. Our two-bedroom apartment was spacious, clean, and renovated. The view of the Alps -- and hanggliders -- from our terrace was spectacular. The location was terrific -- a five minute walk to the best part of Garmisch, and a five minute walk in the other direction to the train station. It was easy to get groceries, coffee to go, pastries, and Pizza Hut/McDonalds for our young kids.

The only downside to the location was the noise from the street traffic.

What I liked best: The bathroom and the location

What I liked least: Faint smell of cat in one bedroom, and noisy traffic
