The Hotel Hirschen and town of Staufen were definitely one of the highlights of our two week trip to Germany. We stayed two nights along with Rebecca C and her family who had the upstairs apartment. Our room was quaint and comfortable with two large windows and sleeping for three. The bathroom, though small, was immaculate as was the rest of the room. They were closed when we arrived but the lockbox worked perfectly and the key to one room led to the key for the apartment (2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms). The next morning, breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the owner was very friendly and helpful as we tried to decided what sights to see. We took the gondola up Baldchen mountain and hiked fairly easily to the top, then traveled through gorgeous Black Forest mountain drives to Schweinwassen Amusement/Animal park. Great time for the kids to get out see some fabulous animals, run around and play on a great playground. After returning that evening walked around the town of Staufen - although it is small, their was a nice crowd at the wine co-op and we stopped for a drink at a restaurant on the marktplatz. The hotel is in an ideal location - quiet yet central with free parking in the back. Spent the next morning shopping and walking the town again (next time we will eat at the Cafe Decker on the river!) and left for Triberg and Wiesbaden feeling we had had a true taste of small town local culture. Loved it!
