Fodor's Review

The Markusturm began as a 13th-century customs house, an integral part of the city defense wall, and has since developed over the centuries into an inn and staging post and finally into a luxurious small hotel. Some rooms have beams, others have Laura Ashley decor or brightly painted bedsteads, and some have valuable antiques from the Middle Ages. Try to book a reservation for dinner when you arrive, since the beamed, elegant restaurant ($–$$) does fill up. The fish is excellent. Along with well-selected wines, you can also enjoy your dinner with three kinds of home-brewed beer. In summer head for the patio.
