Altstadthotel Zum Hechten
Travel Blogs from Füssen
Today was a royal day. In the morning we went to Schwangau to visit King Maximillian II's castle, Hohenschwangau, and King Ludwig II's castle, Neuschwanstein. HOLY COW. (hint, that is the English translation of earlier German...). It was raining like crazy - typical Bavaria but felt just like home. We had to buy umbrellas! Hohenschwangau made me …
The theme of the day was rain, rain, and more rain. Colder too.
We went to bed with it raining and woke up to more rain. The clouds were low making for poor mountain views. After breakfast, we pulled on our jackets and rain pants (yes, we all own rain pants. Its pretty much a backpacking requirement) and headed for Schloss Linderhof (one …
... we visited. Neuschwanstein Castle is exactly how you would imagine a fairy tale castle. It’s what Disney Land castle was actually based on. It was jaw dropping seeing it high up in the mountains surrounded by the grand alps. We could have walked up the mountain but, ya know, who wouldn’t want to ride up in a horse and cart! There were only 2 horses pulling 14 people up a mountain! Man, I felt so sorry for the poor things. ...
After a very pleasant dinner by the lake last night, we had an early night. Was a good idea as it meant we got an early start.
Brekky at 745am courtesy of our host at the Romantic Pension Albrecht...bit like a B&B.
Off to buy the tickets and it was quieter than yesterday afternoon. Castle 1 at 9:20am and Castle 2 at 11:55am.... I haven't used their right names as they are way too long and hard to spell.
Lesson 1 ...get here early, ...
The 'factory' is really a gallery and a shop. I find it hard to say this, but the shop was the highlight. The gallery part only had a loose connection to crystals and some exhibits were mad. The good news is the financial damage was low and we were off again
The road to Hohenschwangau was a fabulous winding road through and up and down the mountains. It would have been better if it was not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Altstadthotel Zum Hechten Füssen
Such a cute place!
We stayed here for one night prior to our trip to see King Ludwig's castles. It is in a great location right in the middle of town and close to lots of restaurants and shops. The lady who checked us in was so friendly and nice! The room was really cute, with a nice little balcony facing the Fussen castle. Breakfast was good too. We would definitely stay here again!
We have just returned from three nights in Fussen, Bavaria, satying at the Hotel Zum Hechten in the Aldstat of the town, about 5 minutes walk from the station.
We stayed here for 2 nights in mid-July. The rooms were spacious, recently renovated, and spotless. We found the breakfast to be ample and delicious with a wide variety of breads, meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, etc. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the food and service in the restaurant were very good. We found it a little tricky to find by car, but once we figured it out, it is easy to get to. We had free parking while there. The location is terriffic - within easy walking distance of the shopping and restaurants in Fussen, several beautiful parks and biking/hiking trails, and the old Fussen castle. Neuschwanstein is about a 5-10 minute drive. Would love to stay here again.
Great location - middle of town. We had a triple which contained 3 single beds. The room was long but narrow. Definitely nothing fancy - but it was clean and reasonably priced. The breakfast was nice - nothing special. The woman who checked us in was very friendly.
Good place, good price
This was a nice, clean hotel in a good location in Fussen - right underneath the Fussen Castle (not Neuschewanstein or Hohenschwangau). The breakfast was excellent and the room was clean and spacious.
Perfect room, view and service!!
Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Room was very comfortable with beautiful views of courtyard, Schloss and streets of Fussen. Highly Recommended!!
Highly reccomend the Zum Hecht Hotel
Stayed there in June 2003Management very friendly and helpful.Hotel centrally located. Good dining.Good German atmosphere!
Stayed there in October - very nice
We arrived at the hotel just as it started to snow in October 2003 and were very pleased with our reception, our room and the dining room. The room was truly non-smoking and newly remodeled. It was very large and nicely done. The restaurant had a non-smoking section (rare) and both the food and service were very good. We had a car and there was plenty of parking and good directions from the hotel staff.
Rented 2 rooms for family. One was very small for 2 people. The other was average size but no telephone and a broken TV. Family run hotel.
Romantic Inn centrally situated
This hotel sits in the town centre below the Schloss, perfect for exploring the small narrow streets. The hotel has room in ther main hotel building and across the courtyard in a second building. rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated. extremely clean and the family are friendly that run the hotel. Hotel has its own restaurant. Highly recommended for making a bse for this lovely part of Bavaria. For Film buffs, the famous Steve Mcqueen motorbike sequences in The Great Escape were filmed in the fields just outside the town. Scloss Neuwanstein is 8 mins drive away.
