The town centre of Schirmeck seems to be completely devoid of accommodation which was why we finished up 3 km out of town in the southern suburb of La Claquette. The hotel is a large old-fashioned building that has clearly seen better days and has a slightly run-down feeling but is clean and neat.
Our room was of medium size, comfortable and with a nice view over the River Bruche, gardens and forest. The elderly receptionist misled us on the availability of nearby places for dinner but we eventually tracked down some basic choices in Rothau, a ten minute walk, over the railway line. Breakfast was a little limited but the breads were fresh ad good.
This stay was at the end of Day 11 of our 25 day trek through Les Vosges.
