The Matheisl family offer four rental units, each named after a local mountain peak or range. We were most impressed by the two top floor apartments (the Wank and the Kramer) on opposite ends of this neat-as-a-pin chalet-style building. Both have marvelous views from their large balconies and each has a high, blond wood beamed ceiling that arches over the sitting room. These units' wood and tile kitchens and baths are snuggled under the sloping beamed ceiling and brightened by skylights.

Since the Wank and Kramer have only a kitchen, a bath and a living room with beds that fold out of the wall, they are best suited to two persons. But at prices beginning at 95 DM ($63) per day (one week minimum) what bargains! The larger apartments on the ground floor start at 120 DM ($80) for two; add 30 DM ($20) for each additional person. The decor of all four units emphasizes light wood, white walls and carpeting, drapes, couches and overstuffed chairs in various pastel shades. Each has cable TV with CNN, a radio and direct-dial phone.

The Regina is on the Garmisch side of town in a residential neighborhood, about a 10-minute walk from the Bahnhof. These are easily the best of the apartments we saw in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
