Beautifully decorated and well appointed with a contemporary modern approach. Every detail had been carefully thought through and we appreciated that - from the very comfortable box spring bed to subdued ambience lighting in the bathroom and the large screen TV with Sky Access and easy to clean kitchen/dinette. Two separate apartments are located above a restaurant which closes at 7pm. The shared balcony overlooks the lake and is hidden from view. An idyllic location off the beaten track. Perfect for rest and relaxation and one that we undoubtedly will be recommending to friends and family. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the area exploring walking tracks through mixed deciduous woodland and open vistas across meadows. Beautiful countryside. A former copper mine tour is also worth experiencing and within walking distance of the apartment. The Sangerhausen Rosarium was also worthy of note and must be superb in June, July and August when in flower.
