The riverside rooms of this friendly, family-owned and run hotel on the banks of the Weser river come with the best view in town. Its restaurant ($), which has the same pleasing outlook, serves seasonal varieties of regional cuisine, with plenty of fish and red meat on offer. If the weather's good, the best place to be is in the hotel's beer garden. Flanked by a couple of leafy birch trees, it's popular with cyclists who fuel their travels through the valley with a cold
drink and some Flammkuchen (tart flambé).
