The room was spacious and warm. We had a great view of the street below. The huge bath was a real treat.

We ventured to Lake Konstanz on the boarders of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. We grabbed more supplies and purchased a 4 day First Class Swiss Pass (seeings as we’re such a classy family and all - he he he!!)

Coffee, beer and something to eat was a welcome treat on our arrival back in town.
