The room in which the bodies were found remains sealed.

They were met with a freakish and horrifying scene - a 54-year-old man and two women, aged 30 and 33, dead with crossbow bolts through their mid-sections and two crossbows lying on the floor.

The other woman was lying on the floor with a bolt in her chest.

According to local media two crossbows were found in the room by police when officers searched the scene in the remote riverside hotel near the Austrian border.

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

He said officials might be anxious companies may shift operations out of China in response to "aggressive retaliatory actions". Trump chose to increase the tariffs following what the US called China's decision to renege on key parts of a developing deal.

By Saturday evening police announced that there was no further evidence at the guesthouse and it reopened for business.

The man, who was dressed in a suit had a long, white beard, while the two women were dressed in black, witnesses told German daily Bild.

The women were found dead in an apartment belonging to one of the women found dead in a hotel several hundred kilometres away. They had booked a room with a double bed and single bed for three nights, checking in on Friday, without ordering breakfast.

Local press reports that none of the other guests heard any odd noises overnight, though the storm and the fast-flowing river beside the guesthouse might have muffled any noise.

The 30-year-old deceased woman had an apartment in the town of Wittingen in north Germany, police said Monday.

Initial results from the post-mortem investigations were expected by Tuesday morning, police said.

Crossbows can be purchased legally in Germany by anyone over 18.
