Clean & well equipped apartment with great views
Everybody in the family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Schwangau; it was a lovely, clean apartment and we found it an excellent base for all our trips out.
The view from the balcony is fantastic!
Everyone in our family agrees we'd love to come back to the Birkeneck! It is the perfect place from which to base your Bavarian adventure- excellent location, immaculate and comfortable apartment plus Cornelia's detailed knowledge of the area to assist you.
The garden was great for our kids to run around in when we weren't out cycling around the beautiful green lanes. Everything in the kitchen was in perfect working order and the bathroom was spotless. Laundry facilities in the basement meant we could travel light.
We couldn't have asked for a better week of weather in which to be out exploring the villages, castle, lakes and nature trails. Kids loved running around listening to the neighbouring cows' bells ringing and the tree walk.
We're hoping to come back to experience Birkeneck in the snow!
Thank you Silke, you've created a perfect haven in which to relax!
Birkeneck in Schwangau - a very good vacation
The appartment at Birkeneck house in Schwangau was a very good choice for us to spend our vacation in Bavaria. A very nice, clean, peacefull and well connected (for those with car, bicycle or on foot) area with planty of options for rest and activities, direct view at mountains and the famous castles, clean, confortable, fully equiped appartment itself, discreet and nice hospitality from the host with a very good information on what is there at the very start - nothing more is needed if we just want to relax and share our joy with our family. We thank you for the opportunity to experience the two weeks visit at Birkeneck house as a base for our vacation.
Just as Advertised
Birkeneck Haus is a great place to stay in Schwangau! The location of the apartment is wonderful. Views of castle and mountains amazing! Plus it is very quiet to sleep and very well equipped for living for a few days. Clean. Well maintained. We stayed a week. The place delivers the experience promised in the ad very well.
Cornelia is an excellent host and very responsive to our questions.
I will recommend this place to friends. The area is worth staying a while in.

Beautiful Holiday Apartment
We really enjoyed our stay at Birkeneck Luxury Apartment. It was a nice drive from Frankfurt and once we got there it was a fabulous getaway from the city life. You can arrive without knowing anything about the area and Silke and Kalim will give you all of the information you need. They had made dinner reservations for us for our first night and the restaurant was really great and just a short walk from the hotel. We weren’t really sure what we wanted to do on our trip, but we let our hosts know what types of things we enjoyed and they provided us with so many options and detailed information about the area. The apartment itself was really beautiful; modern and open, and cozy at the same time. The small town of Schwangau is charming and we actually found it easier to communicate in English there than almost any other city we have visited in Germany so far. Everyone seems like they really want you to have a great stay. We got to experience so much in our 4 nights there, but we were also left wanting more. We will definitely be coming back.
