Fodor's Review

On the Rhine between the Bodensee and the Zellersee, these two half-timbered apparitions of onion domes, shutters, and gargoyles were first built in 1702 and retain their historic air despite modern expansions. The interiors are just as ornate, though the Drachenburg is the most atmospheric. It has gleaming old staircases, four-poster beds, brocade, and crystal sconces scattered throughout. Rhine-view rooms are furnished like honeymoon suites. Its restaurants vary in ambience; the most sophisticated is the one in the original house.
