All of the rooms were spacious and although there were six of us staying there was the ability to hide in corners. The two bathrooms were spot on and as both had showers meant that we could get organised for day trips quite easily.The town is lovely with very little street noise but the trains do run regularly but we quickly got used to them. The walk to the castle is beautiful and the castle certainly worth the effort. Awesome views from the battlements. The local supermarket is a short walk away and very well equipped with friendly staff able to cope with my very poor German. Basteibrucke in the evening sun was outstanding and the train to Dresden was out of this world and only five minutes from the flat. One small niggle was that the oven did not have any baking trays or a second shelf but to be honest that is me being pedantic. Biggest issue however was that I didn't get to go on a steam ship on the river and that we really should have stayed longer. Would thoroughly recommend a stay and will do our hardest to return in the near future.
