The refrigerator was small and lacked a freezer. This is a very small town with no shops or restaurants. The nearest passenger train is 3 km away. There is a freight train track running behind the building, however, the trains are relatively quiet. This is an area known for hiking and biking and the surroundings are quite beautiful.

There is plenty of parking and a lovely garden to use. We enjoyed walking out across the road to stroll down by the river. It is very peaceful here. Locally are pretty towns and great history and landscapes. I especially liked Weissenberg. A thoroughly wonderful place to unwind.
