Modern apartment

5 of 5
Very nice modern apartment, just out of town,so nice and quiet but only a short walk into the town. Everything you needs is provided. I wouldn't think twice about returning.

Superb apartment

5 of 5
Modern, well equipped and very comfortable. Great reception by the host. Couldn't have been happier. Very close to city, shops and many great restaurants. Book it now or you'll regret it! 20 metre walk to the City Wall and on up to beautiful gardens and the Mediaeval Castle. Excellent transport links to the Nazi sites if you're interested in modern history. Loads of ice cream shops, sausages and beer close by. What more do you want? Wonderful.
