Marlenes Bistro Schliersee

Situated smack dab in the middle of Neuhaus, right between Spitzingsee and Schliersee adjacent to a beautifully gardened park is a little oasis filled with flowers and the incredible aroma of beef grilling on a lava grill.  If you have ever been to Neuhaus I am sure you know I am talking about Marlene’s.

To sit on a sunny Summer afternoon sipping on of her fresh and delicious cocktails while sitting with friends in her bright and cheery flower festooned biergarten and indulging in one of her many delicious salads is the nearest thing to heaven after a  long day of hiking.  During the winter months her cozy interior atmosphere, warm service, and ample supply of local schnapps will chase away any chill.

If you love fresh fish like I do.  Make sure to try one of her potato encrusted fish.  Many of my vegetarian friends love to visit me so I take them to Marlene’s.  They said her salads are one of the best they’ve ever had.  And there are so many other options for the meat lover too.  My family was visiting from the US this year during Thanksgiving and we were treated to a great holiday by Marlene and her wonderful serving staff.  Even our littlest family member found something delicious on the menu.  Which as any parent knows always ensures a great meal.

Don’t miss out. Make a reservation today for your next special event or even just a romantic dinner for two.  Also make sure to say hello to Marlene when she peeks out of the kitchen.  Tell her Schliersee Magazin sent you.

A little Nip of Courage – Schnapserei Spitzingsee

I love Schnapps, there I’ve said it.  I am not sure if it is my Irish ancestry but my Grandmother and my mother were both known to have made various alcoholic concoctions.  Their favorite being a simple mixture of honey, lemon and whisky to fight a cold.  These magical, herbal mixtures have been handed down through time.

So on a chilly dark day while hiking on Spitzingsee my girlfriend mentioned she discovered a new locally produced Schnapserei we had to make a slight detour and try a few out.

The shop is located near the church directly in the village of Spitzingsee.  Its rather hard to miss with the life size plastic cow reproduction out front.  Insidetypically historic Bavarian interior, you might almost miss the shop owner behind the counter through all the copious beautifully hand decorated bottles.

A former restauranteur, he now plays with his hobby of Schnapps and liquor manufacturing.   The shop offers you such creative combinations like Lemon-Pepper, Chili-honey and Bauernbrot Schnapps.  I personally am going back for a bottle of his homemade Gin.  Which he makes very traditionally with Juniper berries and “none of those fancy boutique things.”  This is really Gin made as it should be.

So, next time you up on Spitzingsee and are looking for just the right nip of courage to help you get to the Rotwand Gipfel.  Stop by and tuck a bottle or two in your backpack.  One for encouragement and the other for recovery.
