There is everything you could want in the kitchen. Comfortable living area. The terrace is beautiful. Wonderful spot to sit at anytime of day and enjoy the sun. Deggendorf is a lovely town and perfectly located for a range of activities. We went to the Bavarian forest, took trips on the Danube, visited historical sites and spent time at the local water park. There is no shortage of things you can do. We will definitely come back to this area again.
