Welcome to the Chiemgau, one of the most beautiful areas in Bavaria! Pure natural wonder wherever you look - mountains, valleys, lakes, sloping hills. These are what will make your holiday in southern Chiemgau a special experience no matter the seasons.
The village of Reit im Winkl is located in a valley 700 m above sea level and is surrounded by sheltering mountains in the south, east and north leaving it only open to the west. This geographic situation leads and the resulting cloud mass lead to frequent snowfall in the winter, leading this area to being known as a snow magnet.
Geologically, Reit im Winkl belongs to the northern Limestone Alps, the mountains around the village are part of the Chiemgau Alps. The highest mountain in the municipality is the Dürrnbachhorn at 1776 m above sea level.
Embedded in this beautiful Alpine panorama is our Hotel Oberschmied, which is a pleasant combination of Bavarian tradition and modern ambience.
Our hotel is centrally located but quiet. Shops, restaurants and tourist facilities, such as swimming pools and Kneipp pools, cross-country ski trails and hiking trails are within walking distance. Hiking and cycling trails start just behind our hotel and the premium rock climbing route next to the waterfall is just minutes away. For a more intense adrenaline rush you could also book a jump at the paragliding center nearby. Or just relax and enjoy the silence and the natural environment, take a deep breath of mountain fresh air and enjoy a Bavarian beer.
In the evening try our steak house ‘Grillhaus Alte Schmiede’ with Bavarian beef, Bavarian beer and international wines.
We have brought the 600-year-old building to life by remodeling it with great taste and attention to detail. You can watch our chefs prepare your meal in the open kitchen, which is located in the former blacksmith working space. We use only fresh products and local meats to create juicy steaks, crispy salads and a variety of appetizers.
