        This place is obviously several building that have been merged into one hotel which makes for odd dog legs in the hallway and so on. But no matter. That's part of what adds to it's old world charm. The staff are very plesant. We'd booked for a two night stay, then decided to extend our visit by a day and they were more than happy to accomidate that. There breakfast buffet was what I would term typical. One odd thing: when my daughter tried to get more hot water for her small pot of tea, they could not understand why she wouldn't be asking for a new tea bag as well. If your intention is to be frugal or if you ascribe to the school of thought that the second cup of tea is actually the better one, be prepared!

        The desk is not manned at night. We were given a key to a side door and told that if we were coming in late we would need to let ourselves in that way. This is really my only negative comment: the first evening we struggled with that door for so long, I was envisioning having to get a room somewhere else and return to get our stuff the next day! There seems to be a trick to opening the side door, I can't describe the solution, but if you have trouble with it just keep trying! It does open with just a gentle turn of the key. It still offered a challenge the following evening but once we figured out that it can be finessed it did become easier to do it.

        ... it was a beautiful day, especially for this time of year. We went through the town square and went off a side street and found a little restaurant, the waiter said all the restaurants would have good German food. And this place was no exception. I was hungry but couldn't eat a lot, still a little queasy?? ugh. We still had time to walk around some, the shopping was very upscale in the ...

        Today we are in Kitzingen on the Maine River. It's a town of 130,000 people dating back to the 8th century. Early inhabitants included a Benedictine monastery. The region is famous for its wines. We did not participate in the town tour and wine tasting group but opted instead for a self-guided tour through the old town and across the bridge over the Maine River to the "new" town residential area, probably dating back to the 1500s. After an early ...

        The sun has snuck out which is wonderful. Enjoying the passing autumnal scenery. Had a glass blowing demonstration from an entertaining salesman. Then a visit to a home of a local for sponge and strudel. Lovely people and great village. House heated hydronically in the ...

        ... and pork fillet. Tonight we joined the Night Watchman's Walk which is held every night at 8pm. Looking around we couldn't imagine how so many people could be catered for but it was well done. He has a good loud voice and it is a very quiet town so he is easily heard. When he stops he stands up on something high so everyone can see him. It was fun walking the dark streets and listening to the history of Rothenburg......very ...
