'Tis the Season for Relaxing
The holidays are a cherished season in Bavaria. Each town or village has beautiful Christmas markets, each with its own unique atmosphere. Aromas of mulled wine and grilled sausage fill the air. A meander through the decorated stalls is the perfect way to celebrate the season. Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate all the service member families who would like to spend the holiday’s at Edelweiss Resort.
To best accommodate guests during the holidays, we will open room availability on our online reservation system for dates 20 December - 3 January on April 15th at 1700 hours CET on a first come, first reserve basis with promotion code HOLIDAYS15. This will no longer be a lottery system. There are two periods to reserve, either 20 - 27 December or 27 December - 3 January (it is possible to extend past 3 January). A maximum of three rooms can be reserved per sponsor. The holiday package is restricted to a 7 night stay with a package price which depends on your rank category. There is a one time, per room entertainment fee on New Year's Eve to cover entry to all the special events, entertainment, kids activities and fireworks we have planned.
We have our famous ski and snowboard week instruction available starting on Monday 21 December and 28 December. The sports week package includes lessons, rental, lift tickets and transportation for the week, and is the most affordable way to ski and have fun. It is recommended once you receive a confirmed hotel reservation that you contact our Vacation Planning Center to reserve your ski and snowboard week to ensure availability.
We will have many daily complimentary holiday events, such as Santa visits, ornament decorating, family movie nights, karoake and more. We also have special daily tours at additional costs to Christmas markets, night sledding, and sporting events. There is no shortage of things to do while spending your holiday in beautiful Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Our goal is to ensure we provide the best service possible during this cherished holiday season while giving service members the opportunity for a vacation of a lifetime in beautiful Bavaria.
