Arrive and breathe a sigh of relief

Your hosts

Everyone has a vocation. We have found ours. We are hosts body and soul, and happy to dedicate ourselves to the well-being of our guests. Amidst the Alpenkönig’s architectural harmony and charming atmosphere, we have created the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday in Oberstaufen.

Gastgeber Thomas und Stephanie Bentele

Our precious jewel of comfort and well-being was built in 1994 by Katharina and Berthold Bentele and managed with passion and enthusiasm – qualities which we have undeniably inherited as the “younger” generation. Thomas Bentele has been running the business since 2004. And during that time, lots of new ideas and careful attention to detail have been lavished upon this superior four-star hotel.


Whether you’re planning a relaxing holiday or really prefer to be active, whether you want to be pampered over a wellness weekend or just want to take advantage of Oberstaufen’s wonderful leisure facilities during your stay: the Bentele family and all our staff look forward to spoiling you at every possible opportunity.


Enjoy our warm-hearted service, make yourself at home, and while you are with us you may often forget you are actually staying in a hotel.


We wish you a wonderful stay!
Thomas Bentele, Family and Team


Arrive as our guest and leave as a friend

It is the charming details that will make your stay in our wellness hotel in Oberstaufen especially pleasant: for example, the hand-written name on your breakfast table, which expresses sincerely: “It will be a pleasure to serve you here.”
The warm ambiance is only partly due to the colours, fabrics and materials we have used. It mostly comes from the hearts of the people who care about your welfare at the Alpenkönig.


We always add new, charming accents with sensitivity towards our guests and respect for the interior. And we are always keen to keep our premises and our facilities up-to-date. Just fall back, relax and let yourself go – we will be there to catch and support you!


Quiet, sunny and central – a wellness hotel in a perfect setting. The Alpenkönig superior four-star hotel is situated on the outskirts of Oberstaufen, set in a charming residential area.

The pleasant tranquility allows you to sleep with an open window. And thanks to our sunny location you can also enjoy lots of sunbathing and cosy evenings on the terrace.


Our sparkling jewel of comfort and well-being sits between the Bodensee and the fairy-tale castle of Neuschwanstein at an altitude of around 800 metres. Amidst forests, meadows, rolling landscapes, lone farmsteads and small hamlets, and the picturesque alpine foothills of the Allgäu region.
