Architecture & design

The architectural design of our establishment is inspired by the interplay of tradition and modernity. Our love of nature and the mountains is reflected in our choice of natural materials. The simple lodges are characterised by their open-plan design, stretching from North to South. The high ceilings refresh the soul, while the Wetterstein mountains are reflected in the generously-sized windows. Our architecture simply invites you to sit back and relax in the midst of nature.


The construction of the Villa Friedheim appears in the first historical mention of the dual town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Despite the challenge posed by creating a symbiosis of tradition and modernity, the historical heart of the villa has been preserved to this day.

The front of the villa has been deliberately left in its original state. Instead, our hotel’s wooden façade echoes the old building’s carved balconies. The country house was extended with solid building components, a process which was completed in 2015. Despite the many changes, the flair of the old villa is still in evidence.


Nature has been very generous to the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It inspires us, nourishes us and forms the keystone of our establishment’s value system. The selection of natural woods, our regional cuisine and the use of ecological detergents all serve as the basic tenets of our hotel quartier.
