                                                      We had the most fantastic week at the Birkeneck Apartment , we booked the ground floor which had a huge decked area ideal for dining out & sunbathing , the views toward the mountains & the castle are just stunning & for us was in the ideal location for everything around us , Fussen is just a 10 minute walk away & the lake just a 5 minute stroll , every morning at 7 we went swimming in the deserted lake , what a way to start the day! , the apartment was very well equipped with a great hotel serving fantastic food & great cold German beer just 50 yards away with stunning views from the sun terrace , Cornelia booked us a table first night which was great as it does get booked up. The whole area is just great if you like the outdoors , stunning walks , cycle rides & swimming & when that is enough there is a fantastic spa & swimming pool complex just 5 minutes away , my only complaint was the plastic sheeting on the bed , we had a hot week of weather , what I would have done foe some cool cotton sheets! , this was our first visit to the area & we motor all over Europe , we will certainly be back.

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      The location and apartment were perfect. Everything was provided. Great wifi reception. Many thanks to Cornelia who was really friendly and informative regarding local amenities and places of interest to visit. Her recommendation to visit the Hotel Steiger restaurant was great. The food there was very good. The weather was perfect which made the holiday complete. We even enjoyed the evening where we had a six hour electric storm which lit up the sky and mountains - very dramatic. We would definitely recommend it to others.
