It is away slightly from the centre,but a very pleasant walk takes you there within 10 minutes.There is a bakers just round the corner too. I would be very happy to stay at this property again. ( sorry that this review is so late,but I could not find how to leave a review,as I find the Homeaway site very unclear.)

It sits in a cul-de-sac with very little passing traffic. The garden is private and the flowers beautiful. The apartment has been made to a very high standard with everything you will need. There are two top quality restaurant in walking distance and one two kilometres away all of which we recommend We thank Gerd very much or our stay and hope we will be able to enjoy a holiday again in Wienhausen
