The Old Custom House is situated in a remote and lovely spot in the peace of the forest but still accessible to many places of interest. Passau and Deggendorf should not be missed and it is only a short drive into Czechoslovakia. The nearby Gasthaus does excellent food and the area is perfect for walkers. The accommodation was comfortable (although there was no microwave although the description said there was) and we appreciated the fresh bread that was delivered each morning. We hope to return!
