So we left Lucerne in the morning for a 4 hour train ride. The first leg to Zurich was uneventful. We had quite a walk to get to the next train taking us from Zurich to Buchloe, Germany. We boarded the first class car and Mom went to get settled into our assigned seats while I strapped our luggage in the storage area. This discourages people from …
It was a relaxing morning in Vienna to start - our train wasn't until 10 so we had time to pack at our leisure, and enjoy some coffee and Lebkuchen in our hotel room before catching a cab to the Hauptbahnhof for our hour-long trip to Salzburg. We hadn't thought that we'd get there with our original itinerary, and unfortunately we wouldn't have time …
Left the site at 7:30 this morning, leaving the 3 Amigos to finish tidying up the mobile home for the Thomson passing out parade at 10am. Phill & Caroline then taking them to Verona to catch flight home this afternoon.
Our route took us north from Salo up the complete length of Lake Garda to …

I've spent the last couple of days walking around Kaufbueren. Alex and his cousin Yula and myself have been going to the city center most everyday. Not to sound arrogant but I'm a little surprised at how few people here speak English. I was under the impression it was pretty common but it must be more centered around bigger cities. Most people here are pretty patient and I've gotten by pretty well so far. Traffic actually stops ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Sonne Füssen
We had a great time at this hotel. We were there when a festival was taking place and the hotel had music outside both nights. The breakfast in the mornings was real good. The rooms were adequate and clean. Frank, the manager, was the most helpful person at any hotel we have stayed at. He went out of his way to make our stay the best of our 2 week trip.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Sonne Füssen
Hotel Sonne is great and so is Fussen.
One of the best hotels in which I have stayed. The decor is modern and stylish. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic - very central and only a 2 minute walk to the Hauptbahnhof (where the buses leave for the castles).
We had a 'Schloss' room, for which we paid an additional €10 per night but the view wasn't really worth it. The castle in question is not one of the famous 'Ludwig' castles.
Fussen is a great place to visit and we wish we could stay longer than the 2 days we had. I suspect we'll be back at some point as the whole area looks good and is only about 45 minutes by car to Zugspitze via Ehrwald in Austria (probably in the summer next time).
Breakfast is part of the tariff and it was adequate.
Overall, a very happy experience.
We arrived in Fussen in the early evening and after trying one run down looking private hotel, we ended up at hotel Sonne. The reception was great, they had just the triple room we were looking for, 124 euros with breakfast for 3. The room was excellent and the ensuite absolutely great. We had dinner at the hotel bar/cafe and that to was excellent and well priced at 40 euros for 3 of us to eat with drinks. Breakfast the next day was great too, plenty to choose from. The hotel is quite close to the railway station but central to the town. We thoroughly enjoyed our unfortunately rather short stay in Fussen it is such a beautiful area with the lake and the castles. We would like to go back for a bit longer next time. But the hotel being so nice greatly added to our enjoyment. There is nothing better than getting to a nice hotel after a long day travelling.
A good spot for Neuschwanstein castle
Fussen is a lovely town and a great place to stay when visiting Neuschwanstein castle. Hotel is on the main road so easy to find. Despite being on the main road, the hotel was great with a lovely room: this place is not exactly as busy as London! The room did back on to the main shopping street but this was not a major problem. Staff friendly and helpful. Has underground car park as well as smaller car park out front. The whole setting is fantastic so you want to be out rather than staying in anyway...
Modern yet friendly hotel
Hotel Sonne is a modern hotel right in the center of Fussen. We stayed in one of the "Schloss" rooms, located on the 4th floor with a view of a nearby castle. There was a small balcony, comfortable beds, modern bathroom. Everything was clean. One downside was that the walls were not soundproof (but certainly not thin either). The staff was extremely friendly and all of them spoke very good English.
There are a couple food options in the neighborhood, all of them touristy (but, well, what do you expect?). The bar in the hotel had a good selection of beer, wine, and ice cream, but was a little pricey. The hotel breakfast was good and went well beyond a standard continental breakfast (they had eggs and meat).
This is a terrific little hotel located in the heart of Fussen and near the Neuschwanstein Castle. The room (for 3 adults) was nicely appointed and clean. It overlooked the main pedestrian cafe/shopping mall in Fussen, within easy walking of lovely gardens, a castle and other sites. The restaurant was very good and, of course, you could dine outside or have a beer in comfort. I particularly liked the parking: there's a choice of a garage below ground, or for only a few euros, you could park on a grassy strip literally 20 feet from the front door, right by the outside cafe. It was comforting in a strange place to have your car nearby while sipping a beer at your hotel. This was also one of only 2 hotels on an extensive European tour that offered free internet access in the lobby. A terrific find and I wanted to stay longer than one night. Next time, I will.
Central Friendly Hotel - Fussen a MUST!!
We stayed in Fussen in the winter, and fell in love with the place! Dream-like snowy alpine scenery, not far from the famous castles (you can take a short bus ride there), and fabulous little city with lovely little cafes and restaurants.
Hotel Sonne was an excellent central place (though not hard to be central as Fussen is a small place anyway). We found the staff to be very friendly, and the rooms, while not luxurious, were bright, clean and comfortable - we had no problems, and it wasn't a bad price overall. The included breakfast was very enjoyable with a fantastic amount of variety.
We would stay at this hotel again, and definitely in Fussen!
