Zum Roten Bären Review

Like several other hotels, the "Red Bear" claims to be the "oldest in Germany," but this one has authenticated documentation going back 700 years to prove its heritage. The inn dates from 1311 and retains its individual character, with very comfortable lodgings and excellent dining choices. Book at least two weeks in advance for great discounts. On request, you may tour the two-story wine cellar dating from the 12th century.
