I was going to be in Europe for Christmas and had a definite idea of what I wanted. This fulfilled every wish that I had. On arrival the Walthers greet you and are present at all activities. As I do not speak German the Walthers speak excellent English and everyone went out of their way to find someone who spoke English. They provided the days activities in English and while the dinner menu was in German they sent someone to the table to explain. On Christmas Eve I rode in private horse drawn sled in a light snowfall. This was prearranged by the hotel they provided Christmas Eve activities that were magical with each person provided a torch and with St Nick we went through the forest to sing Christmas songs and have mulled wine or cider. The dinner, as all meals was fabulous. I had half board and had a breakfast, mid afternoon tea and five course dinner. I cannot stress what a wonderful establishment this was for Christmas and while it is primarily German they went out of the way to make the Americans feel included, even singing Jingle Bells in English in the forest.
