It is our favorite place to stay when in Switzerland's Northeast. A few km from the ancient Konstanz and on the Rhine river connecting the Lake of Constance's 'upper lake' and 'lower lake' you find this small agglomeration of Hotels, restaurants and, across a moat, a privately owned mysterious chateau. The Hotel is a classic, quiet and comfortable. Excellent traditional cuisine and wines from the region. Get a room overlooking the Rhine and watch the Swans or the skiff rowers glide through the waters early morning. A hundert meters across, in Germany, an extended riedy marsh adds to the sense of timeless tranquility.
Do not miss to visit the small castle Arenenberg on the hill above Ermatingen, the place of Hortense de Beauharnais and her son who was to become Napoleon III.
