Edelweiss Lodge and Resort is a beautiful getaway tucked into the Bavarian Alps in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. They often offer deals for active military, and in 2019, they started offering European Escapes vacation packages for retired military as well!
From the time you land to the moment you say Auf Wiedersehen, the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort Europe Escapes retiree package will take care of your entire itinerary.
The European Escapes Package
Throughout the 10 day trip, guests will visit sites in Germany, Italy, and Austria. Well-known sites include Dachau, Munich, Linderhof Palace, and Eagles Nest. But guests also visit lesser-known attractions, such as the Oetzi Museum of Archeology in the Italian city of Bolzano.
But there will also be a couple “free days” for visitors to relax or explore on their own. While the Lodge and Resort offers dinner, guests may also explore the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and enjoy an evening at a local restaurant!
Reviews of Edelweiss Lodge and Resort Retiree Package
Overall, guests had a great experience throughout their trip with Edelweiss.
Once you land at the airport, a team from Edelweiss will welcome you and organize your transportation to the Lodge and Resort. A daily breakfast buffet is also included with the package.
“This is our first trip to Europe and they have made it seamless,” Debbie says. The Europe Escape vacation package orchestrates the tours and private transportation, which means guests just need to show up and enjoy the ride!
Richard enjoyed the tour guides, who were kind and knowledgeable. “The tours themselves are nicely spaced,” he says, which is always important on long vacations.
Barb, who has previously visited some of the destinations, says she “learned so much more” on this adventure. She also praised the guides for their knowledge, but also appreciated how well they spoke English.
“This has just been perfect.”
The Lodge and Resort
Many hotels throughout Europe are old or simply don’t have the amenities many Americans enjoy, such as air conditioning or elevators. And after a long day of tours and bus rides, you want a comfortable hotel to end your evening.
Edelweiss Lodge and Resort has it all! “Rooms are nice, service is great, and you’ve got that to go back to every night,” Richard says.
And it’s not just a comfortable facility. “The natural beauty is just breathtaking,” Debbie says.
The Lodge and Resort has an incredible view of the countryside and mountains.
