  • Karen Brown's Recommendation:

The Hotel Alte Post, which dates back to 1612, holds a prime position on the main square of Oberammergau, just up from the Heimat Museum. It is a charming three-story white-stucco building with a colorful painted façade and paned windows framed by green shutters. Just outside its entry gingham cloths deck tables set under pale-blue umbrellas. We visited on a gorgeous summer afternoon when all the outside tables were full but it wouldn’t take much of a drop in temperature to tempt one inside into one of the many cozy restaurants and dining nooks where beautiful pewter accents are set against the backdrop of old paneled walls under heavy beamed ceilings—all with that wonderful patina of age. Incredibly, the inn is managed by the fifth generation of the Preisinger family, who extend a warm welcome and set a wonderful example to their gracious, helpful employees. The inn has 38 guestrooms, most of which are found in the original hotel. I especially liked number 44, a very pretty room overlooking the square with a sitting area whose sofa could convert to a third bed. There are six rooms located in a back annex off the hotel parking area that are termed family rooms (a few with kitchenettes) but, aside from the comfort of space, I found these not as charming as the reasonably priced standard rooms in the original house (Hauptgebaude).
