Bodensee has never reached the top of the “must-sees” of European travel by most Americans and that’s too bad. A very popular location for Germans, it’s a well respected wine area, surrounded by miles of fruit orchards and beautiful old towns with many cultural treasures.
Returning for our second visit, Seehotel (lake hotel) Off – Off is the family name, is a small, traditional German hotel with some quirky notes, but much going for it. We requested a lake view double and got a clean, small room with an attached sun porch and a huge outdoor terrace overlooking the lake. Potted palms and flowering window boxes and hedges separated the space from the room next door. Large padded deck loungers and tables are a perfect place to enjoy a glass of local wine – stocked in the room mini bar. The weather was perfect in late September when we were there so the terrace was a huge attraction. (Look for the Zeppelin on its daily flights in good weather.)
The hotel dates back many years – photos of the evolution are displayed throughout the hotel. As business evolved rooms and additions and terraces were added so it looks like the whole thing my someday slide off the grape-vined back hill into the lake – buts that’s some of the charm of the place.
Located at the end of the street – just a yacht club is beyond it, the hotel faces the quiet lake promenade. A short walk towards town is the Meersburg Spa – a great swimming, relaxation, sauna, complex.
The restaurant – presided over by Mr. Off, features fresh Bodensee fish in a number of variations and many other traditional and new cooking styles using local ingredients. We tried an Asian styled dish with a little spice in the sauce – something rare in Germany, as well as a steak with chili-chocolate sauce (much better than it sounds) and both were excellent. Dining is never rushed, elegant without being stuffy. There is a large outdoor terrace as well as a lake-facing dining room. There was also a strong cake and coffee business in the afternoon, popular with many lakeside walkers.
If you are looking for something away from some of the touristy areas, with the focus on the lake and the land - this might be it.
