On arriving in Bad Heilbrun my wife and I arranged to meet Chris at the village pub as Chris was away at the time. After settling down with a drink each Chris arrived and introduced himself and joined us for a drink. Chris spoke very good English which was a relief and made us feel relaxed, however the cold beer, sun and cow skin covered benches had already done some of that for him!
It transpired that that very evening was the local areas' Beer Festival which Chris invited us along to. What a night! Chris took us to a large marquee in a field down the road that was full of long tables and had a large stage at the front. It turned out that not only was this a beer festival but also a fashion/catwalk show of sorts where local traders and craftsmen showed off their designs all to the tune of a large brass band all attired in the same way. Queue dancing men and women in fine dress, loud laughter and chatter above the music of the band, and waitresses fighting through tables with several steins of beer in each hand, and some with large trays of food too. This beat any Oktoberfest that we could have gone to. We were introduced to several of Chris' friends which made us feel very welcome.
After watching the show for a few hours, several steins of 'Radler', multiple plates of food and bags of some of the best roasted nuts I've had, we called it a night and headed back to the apartment which had all we needed- a comfortable bed, hot shower for the morning and balcony looking over the fields which we spent several hours on throughout our stay, watching sunrises and sunsets, reading and talking over wine and dubious 'smoked' cheese...
Chris gave us pretty much the best introduction to local life we could have had and it surpassed all of our expectations. He also gave us helpful pointers of where to visit and go and where to get shopping supplies.
Bottom line- I would highly recommend Chris' apartment for any holiday, it met our every requirement and we would definitely stay again.
