It was only on looking for a hotel in another part of germany today that I remembered how much I had enjoyed two nights here last September. I had booked one night but rang up to extend to two and was told that was fine. The journey was terrible, pounding rain all the way from Rothenburg and the mists were so low that it was inpossible to tell what the village was like even. We booked in and went up to the room, which had a balcony. I stood on the balcony and wondered why on earth I had booked one because all I could see was mist! A drink in the (comfortable) bar later the mist was lifting and to our delight it became clear that this was an exceptional village, deep in a valley, indeed as the mist rose I was amazed to see more and more trees going further and further up. A walk around the village later (which is well worth a few hours walking round the hills) we had a really good dinner with plenty of beer, obst and home made chocolate liqueur. The food was great, I remember having very good mushroom sauces in particular, it was clear that everything is home made, which is great and Michael is a much better chef than you would expect to find in a small inn, which makes it all the better. Lisa as well was very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed a good chat with them both and far too much schnapps. The second day was bright and clear, the breakfast good and on return to the Inn the food was, again, excellent. The last morning we were directed to a great bakery after a (moderate) bill. Really very good, I look forward to coming again.
