Welcome to Arabella Alpenhotel am Spitzingsee, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

My dear Spitzingsee

A mountain village at the end of all roads at an altitude of 1,100 metres in the middle of the Bavarian mountains. An enchanting, extraordinary place that you will always want to return to. The mountains are beautifully reflected in the crystal-clear Spitzingsee, while soothing silence and tranquility surround the town and the hotel, which is located directly on the Spitzingsee. The peaks are almost close enough to touch here! Our guests have been enjoying genuine Bavarian hospitality with us since 1972. The Spitzingsee mountains make their mark on the 120 rooms and suites. You can discover Alpine cuisine in our two restaurants and the Spitzing Alm am See, and relax in the AlpenSpa after a great day in the fresh mountain air. Enjoy the luxury of time with us. Your time. Experience, celebrate, relax. Time for exciting experiences, time with family and friends. And you will definitely take these memories home with you.

Genuine Hospitality Since 1972

Spitzingsee, a Historic Mountain Village

Spitzingsee's rich history unfolds at Arabella Alpenhotel. Established in 1720, the Alte Wurzhütte distilled Gentian schnapps and became a local icon. In 1890, skiing began here, while 1919 saw the Bockerlbahn built to clear storm-damaged trees. The iconic St. Bernard Church was inaugurated in 1937, and plans for a 1942 energy-generating dam were never realized. In 1950, the first chairlift and cable car opened, marking a new era. The 1970s brought significant expansion, including the Spitzingsee Hotel. Today, Spitzingsee boasts a modernized ski resort and a fascinating history, inviting you to be part of its legacy at Arabella Alpenhotel.
