Lovely touches like coffee in the cupboard, shower gel in the bathroom...home from home. Very central. One thing that would help would be a map of parking as it's not directly outside. Would recommend and definitely rent again.

They are wonderful welcoming hosts and the accommodation is excellent. We cycled, swam and drove to see Heidleberg, We would certainly like to return to this property. Dymphna (Dublin)

I am originally from Germany and visit once a year. The house is perfect for a couple or a small family to stay for a holiday. It's beautifully decorated, walking distance from the town centre and very comfortable to stay in. Both of us felt like home and would have loved to stay longer. The family that rents it out made us feel very welcome. Both my partner and I can highly recommend this lovely property! We would very much like to come back the next time we visit Germany.
