A Cherished Time of Year
We are currently sold out for dates December 19, 2021 - January 2, 2022. If you want to be added to our waitlist, please click here. When a guest cancels and the room becomes available, we will contact those on the waitlist.
The holidays are a cherished season in Bavaria. With snow on the mountains and Christmas lights strung up through town, there is a special atmosphere unique to this area. Unfortunately, COVID had different plans last year and Edelweiss Lodge and Resort had to stay closed in compliance with host nation rules. We are extremely hopeful that won't be the case again this year. Let's hope we can get back to perusing Christmas markets and drinking mulled wine. Reserve now and have a great vacation that you will cherish forever.
There is a minimum 5-night stay during the holiday period - December 19, 2021 - January 2, 2022. Guests can of course stay longer than 5 nights if they would like. There is no limit to the number of rooms an eligible sponsor can reserve. If you are reserving more than ten rooms please contact our group sales department. There is no check-in or check-out on January 1st.
Nobody knows how things will develop this year with COVID. However, given the right conditions we will offer our famous ski and snowboard week during the holidays. Ski and snowboard instruction weeks include lessons, rental, lift tickets, and transportation for the week, and is the most affordable way to ski and have fun. There is a complimentary ski shuttle leaving Edelweiss Lodge and Resort to our Hausberg Lodge in the morning and afternoon. It is recommended once you receive a confirmed hotel reservation for your holiday dates that you fill out the online request forms to reserve your ski week. Capacity will likely be limited.
With all the changes going on regarding virus mitigation efforts, we are planning the holiday events in November and will send out an email with the program of events to all confirmed reservations to help with your planning.
Our goal is to ensure we provide the best service possible while maintaining safety during this treasured holiday season while giving service members the opportunity for a vacation of a lifetime in beautiful Bavaria.

We suggest you sign up in advance so you don't miss the chance to join. We have a limited number of instructors and therefore it is not guaranteed that you can get into a class without prior reservations. You should check in the day before the class starts. Registration is at the Hausberg and you can pick up your skis, snowboards, and equipment ahead of time. This saves time in the morning. There are lockers at the lodge so you don't need to carry your equipment back and forth to the Hausberg. To sign up please fill out the SnowSports Instruction form and include your confirmation number so we can attach your snowsports instruction to your reservation. The four-day package is the most affordable option and gives you adequate time to actually improve on the slopes. The ski instruction programs start on select dates. If you are participating, please check in the day prior to the program start date so you can register.
