Why we love it...

Peaceful, comfortable

The Place

Many people would be happy to pay to walk round this village whose history dates back to the 12thC.The narrow lanes and half-timbered houses, dominated by the monastery, stand right on the bank of the River Rhine, between the Bodensee and the smaller Untersee. However, it’s not been over-visited and still feels like a living town, not a tourist attraction.
This 300-year-old inn, on the tranquil shore of Lake Rhein between Upper and Lower Lake Constance, is only a short distance from the tourist spots in the area. Bedrooms are a mix of old and new, sophisticated and plain. Some have white- washed walls and monochrome furniture, so have extravagant light fittings, heavy classical furniture and fabric-covered walls. The best is luxurious and worth the extra expense for a romantic weekend.
Our reporter enjoyed the restaurant, ‘like a gentle-men’s club, all polished dark wood’ and the exquisite breakfast room. After dinner, guests can retire to the smoker’s room for a cigar and glass of whiskey.
The cinema (free for guests) is a small, elegantly decorated room where you can watch classics, blockbusters and family movies. Movies can be requested if you book in advance.
