Altstadthotel Zum Hechten
Travel Blogs from Füssen
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 …
Today, Charly, Paul, Mirium, Rocio and I went to the one and only Neuschwanstein.
Mirium and Rocio are Charlys friends from Spain who accompanied us to Oktoberfest yesterday. They are very lovely and funny.
Charly took the day off work which was nice, she had heaps of overtime and drove us to Hohenschwangau which is by the mountains and close to the Austrian border.
We then bought tickets to explore ...
... crossing. No, seriously. You don't have to fear for your life crossing with a green walk sign while cars are turning. Traffic signs don't have any words on them which is pretty much like the government saying "Hey you're not stupid you know what this sign means by its shape and color". Lots of smokers and cigarette vending machines at random places. Really, really like how people dress here. Definitely going to be taking ...
Rained all day but wandered around old city constructed abutting a huge cliff into which has been dug the massive car park. The beautiful quadrangles spoilt by stalls being erected for impending market? Introduced to Salzburger Nockerl, beaten egg whites/meringue over hot ...
... Austria, to Schwangau. This is the start of the romantic road, a 340km stretch of road that was nicknamed the romantic road (Romantiche strasse) for tourism purposes since the 1950s. Here lies castle Schloss Neuschwanstein, a castle built in the 1800s by King Ludwig. King Ludwig was obsessed with his friend, Richard Wagner's operas, and most rooms in the castle are dedicated to one of his operas. ...

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.
