One hundred years of family tradition embrace guests of this superb hotel, which combines the surroundings of a grand alpine hotel with the intimacy of a bed-and-breakfast. Located in a small valley below the peak of the ruins of Falkenstein Castle, it's romantic and first class but also good for families, with a playground and open fields where kids can frolic with the owners' two dogs. The comfortable rooms are individually decorated, and most come with a kitchenette, but don't miss the generous breakfast buffet and soup and snacks served throughout the day. This is a spot to spend a few days if time allows, relaxing in the spa and heated pools looking out to the Alps, cozying up to the fire, and enjoying refined food served by the head chef, Barbara Schlachter-Ebert, who was raised here and who now owns and operates the hotel with her husband. The wine cellar is opened for tastings every Thursday; reserve ahead for a night in the treehouse in the woods.
