(They were also very patient with my attempts at speaking German!) The apartment was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The pretty garden and pool was also bonus. The view from the balcony was lovely. The town has a supermarket, wonderful bakery, butcher and farm shop a 5 min walk away. We were easily able to get to central Dresden, we rented a car so we could also travel to Prague, however, the public transport was excellent. We enjoyed staying in this beautiful location and will recommend to family and friends. Thank you to Gisela and Bernd.
