Andreas and Dorothee were fabulous hosts and very helpful. Leaving some groceries is a very nice touch and was much appreciated.It is an ideal base for visits to beautiful castles, palaces lakes and mountains . This is a fabulous rental that will be difficult to beat!

We enjoyed dinner on the balcony, and walked to the nearby bakery for breakfast. The apartment also had everything that we needed for cooking. I would highly recommend this rental :)
