Fodor's Review

This very pleasant hotel and restaurant is set in historic Hirschhorn Castle, perched high over the medieval village. The terrace offers splendid views (ask for Table 30 in the corner). The rooms have a combination of antiques and more contemporary furnishings. Eight are in the castle and 17 in the old stables, and the hotel is often fully booked on weekends for weddings. Wildschwein (wild boar), Hirsch (venison), and fresh fish are the house specialties, or choose a 3-, 4- or 5-course prix-fixe dinner. The friendly proprietors, the Oberrauners, bake a delicious, warm Apfelstrudel based on a recipe from their home in Vienna.
