Most of the original features, including 16th-century beams and brickwork, are preserved at this historic house in the center of Calw, next to Hesse's birthplace. Rooms are small but half-timber like the exterior. The restaurant ($) serves a selection of sturdy German and Greek dishes. A salad buffet will take care of smaller appetites, and lunchtime always has several good-value dishes of the day. There's also an asparagus (Spargel) menu in season.
