Three people have been found dead in a Bavarian hotel room with crossbow bolts in their bodies.

The couple found in bed were a man aged 53 and a woman aged 33, both from the western state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Three people have been found dead, impaled with crossbow bolts, at a picturesque riverside hotel in Germany.

"Further details and identities of the two women are still unknown - possible connections to the dead found in Passau are now the subject of investigations", added police in a statement. According to local newspaper Passaauer Neue Presse, a police spokesperson said the women were not the man's daughters.

A maid discovered the bodies and two crossbows in a triple room shortly before midday on Saturday.

They said it was not clear what their relationship was, what happened inside the hotel room or how exactly the three died.

Early on Saturday morning, the maid found a dead man and women holding hands on the bed, while the third lay dead on the floor.

The hotel manager said the three victims had not ordered breakfast, but planned to stay for three nights. They later announced an unexpected discovery: the corpses of two other women were found in her apartment.

The group left an impression on other guests, with the man wearing a formal suit and sporting a long white beard and his female companions dressed entirely in black.

Police said they didn't immediately have details of the identity of the women found in a search of the apartment in Wittingen, in northern Germany, and what happened to them.

According to a spokesman for the German Shooting Federation in Wiesbaden, anyone over the age of 18 can purchase a crossbow in Germany, the news agency DPA reported.
