Why we love it...

Truly charming bed and breakfast hotel

The Place

The enthusiasm we expressed for the Alpenrose in the first edition of this book has not diminished. If anything, it has increased. This is just the sort of hotel we always hope to find in a pretty old town but seldom do. Located in the pedestrian zone, at the end of a tiny cobbled passageway, roses climb along the front of the building which has been in the same family for generations. The current owner, Mrs. Gutwinski, is always making improvements and in 1994, she gave the entire hotel a facelift. What?s more, she changed the room numbers, so regulars requesting a favourite room should double-check when booking.
In what is now number 30, yellow makes the room seem bright despite small windows while soft grey-blue gives it warmth. Number 21 has dainty ribbon-patterned wallpaper while number 9 has a tiny balcony. Bathrooms are on the small side but well thought-out, with large mirrors and adequate shelf space. Even the corridors are pleasant, with 19thC portraits and furniture. Reservations must be made well in advance of the June Schubertiade festival, when many rooms are taken by artists, and you may even hear singers and musicians practising.
