Fodor's Review

Previously a 16th-century customs house, sitting on 1,000-year old foundations and a secret tunnel that runs to the nearby Schloss and church, this friendly travelers' inn is the type of place made for history buffs. The inn's half-timbered rooms have been restored to resemble what life might have been like in the time of the Brothers Grimm, but with modern comforts like proper bathrooms and beds, and Wi-Fi. Weary travelers can rest their feet beneath the 100-year-old chestnut tree in the inn's beer garden in summer or around a table in the "fire room" in winter.
