Dagmar provided us with all the train timetables which made it very easy to navigate, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Has everything you will need inna home, all you need to take with you is your clothes. There's toys for families with younger children and games for the whole family. The Gungor's were very friendly couple and made our stay in Schwaebisch Gmund worthwhile. Located in a quiet residential neighbourhood with close by amenities like supermarkets, banks, pharmacy..

Very clean and the owners were pleasant and helpful . Very central for day trips in the area and some good restaurants in the nearby town . Would recommend !
