... to see them. Staying in a little town is definitely a 'must do'. The locals are generally nicer and they seem to just enjoy life in general. Try to avoid popular 'tourist' areas because all the shops in town have horrendously inflated prices for us fools who don't know any better. Oh and another thing, make sure you hire a 'city' bike. It's the best way to see the town and give your legs a break from all the walking, that is, if you don't mind looking like a douche ( on those wanky ...
So enjoyed our time with Andrew, Sara and Emerson but all good things come to an end. Up early as they were all setting off for the mountains so Andrew could go mountain biking with a friend and "the girls" could go shopping. Said goodbye to them and to Ursula, and to Gerhard and family next door, then set off for Austria. Lunch on the shore of Bodensee at Rorschach, watching ...
The lady that told us about the Monastery, also told us about Füssen and the Castle which is apparently Walt Disney's inspiration for Cinderella's Castle, we thought we would go have a look....
We arrived at around 1pm, the place was packed, car parks were full etc. etc.
We got in the queue for tickets, and from our point there was a 40minute queue, and at that time the next available slots ...
... Glenn was doing big panic about missing tour. Finally we got on a very cramped bus and made our way up to the castle. Hooray, they let us go on a later tour. It was lovely inside, although very dark. The castle was actually unfinished, a whole floor not fitted out, but what was there was magnificent. We ended up walking back down the mountain. Thankfully the rain seemed to have have stopped, and the views had ...

A block from the train station & the best breakfast buffet we've ever had in our lives. Chocolate fountain, champagne, crepes, pastries straight from their delicious bakery shop. Yummy

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Schlosskrone Füssen
I expected a room that was larger then the one I received. The bathroom was so small that you could not shave if you were left handed and the shower was a very tight fit. We were told that there was a hot buffet breakfast, but all that was hot was a hard boiled egg. I also like more then 2 choices of meat, cheese, bread and cereal.
The room was very clean and the reception personal helpful and nice. We did find that the resturant connected to the hotel served great food. I only wish they were open for breakfast as well as dinner.
Many of the hotels listed are so close in proximity in Fussen that the location between them is irrelevant. Given the fact that Hotel Kurcafe was the most expensive of the four hotels near each other; on a future stay, I would prefer to try one of the others which had a similar location and seemed to be of equal quality. Hotel Kurcafe did have an amazing breakfast with outstanding bread and cakes. The room was comfortable and a good size. The shower had little water pressure though. The staff were friendly. There was a 5 euro fee for parking. Hotel Kurcafe was a pleasant but not outstanding hotel.
My family and I stayed in the Bavarian Suite. The room was clean, HUGE and had a great view of the city and moutains. This suite has a full kitchen, dining area, livnig room and bedroom with tons of closet space. You could easily live here for a month!
The front desk was helpful and friendly. The resturant so-so. We were only there for a very short time so it's hard to say much more. We would definely stay there again.
Loved Fussen and the people and the hotel
I stayed here 1 night March 28th 2004 when we arrived too late to make a run for the castle. Our room for 3 overlooked the statue out front in the square. The room was one of the best we had during our month long tour. The staff was very friendly. 105 Euro got us 2 glasses of wine, the room and breakfast in the morning. The buffet was great the service was good and the dinner was terrific. Try the escargot. It was my frist time and a traveling companion with me has had it many times and said it was the best. I must say I enjoyed it. As for service. It is like most Euro service. Do not expect it to be like the states. They take thier time getting to you so you get more time to enjoy your meal and conversation. Plus they are paid far better so service does not have to be speedy. But it was good. Stop by the candy shop. The village is quite remarkable nestled in by the Alps on all sides. A stop that I will one day have to return too. Also explore the Fussen at night for some nice window shopping and drinks. This little hide-away closes up early. But it is remarkable. Skiing and sledding is close by. The Castle is 5 minutes by car.
I stayed at Kurcafe only 1 night on my honeymoon in 2001 and the staff was EXTREMELY helpful and friendly. They also left a bottle of wine in our room upon arrival and the room was immaculate and had a great view of the village.
After the 9/11 bombings, we received a touching e-mail from "our family in Fuessen" sending their prayers and condolences!!
I cannot say enough about Kurcafe and I can't wait to visit Brigitte and Norbert again!
Small average room, high price
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a Mon-Wed.
The standard room cost us about 140 euros/night. The room was really small, but clean. The bathroom was tiny as well, with just a shower stall, toilet and sink. Only 2 hand towels and bath towels and a liquid soap dispenser for the shower and sink. There was a hair dryer, but we didn't use it. The breakfast was good, but there was only 1 server for about 30 people, so things would run out in the breakfast buffet like silverware, napkins, and food. We were required to pre-pay, and the staff was nice when we checked in and out, but after 8pm the front door was locked and you didn't see them anymore. A key to a side entrance lets you come and go as you please, and you take in your own luggage. The parking lot cost 5 euro/day, and is tucked behind and to the right side of the hotel. When you check in though you have to illegally park on the left side of the hotel. The hotel is OK, just not worth the price we paid.
My husband and I traveled to Fussen with some friends of ours and stayed one night at this hotel. We were blown away with how beautiful Fussen was. Our room had a terrific view of the amazing city. The hotel staff was SOOO friendly and accomodating. We couldn't resist the sweets shop that the building shares! If you're not counting calories, indulge! Overall, the hotel is a terrific place to stay if you're traveling to Fussen. The rooms were clean and decent sized, even though we were choosing one of the smaller rooms. One thing to note is that the door locks are very tricky when entering the room. If you have difficulty, just ask the concierge.
Great place to stay in a nice quiet town in the Alps. The staff are friendly, and do their best to help/accomodate you. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Fussen.
This was an outstanding hotel! The staff were exceptionally helpful when we called to tell them we would be arriving after the reception desk closed. They made special accommodations for our late arrival. The free champagne breakfast was scrumptious, and it kept us full until dinner. The room was clean, modern, and well appointed. I would definitely stay here again when I go back to Fussen! (And I don't speak a lick of German!)
Rude, rude, rude
Don't even bother looking into this place unless you are German. They were the only guests who were treated with any sort of decency. The staff in this hotel (which has large excellent rooms and divine bathrooms) might be interested in learning some people skills. They spoke English but treated any non-German guest tersely. The facial expressions and tone of voice completely changed when the desk staff dealt with Germans - it would have been amusing if it hadn't been so annoying (don't get me wrong - one of my dearest friends is a German citizen).
The restaurant could use a decent manager, too. We waited 20 minutes for coffee and when we finally chased it down, the waitress tried to ignore my request (I addressed her nicely 3 times before she reluctantly looked up). Both the waitresses were run off their feet in this large restaurant and both were in tears at some point during breakfast.
The room was fabulous but not worth staying there ever again.
