Thanks, Tom. We aren't really into the nightlife scene these days. Since we like to start our day early, we may take a stroll after dinner and then head back to our room to read up on the next day's activities or wash out a few undies.

I'll check out Beilstein and Haus Lipmann.

Hi. If you get a chance while in Meersburg you may want to take the ferry to visit Mainau Island, it's filled with the most beautiful flowers, trees, etc. A great way to spend part of a day. In Meersburg we stayed at the Zum Post, a nice historic hotel in town.

We also rented a great apartment on the Mosel River on the Kues side of the river from Bernkastle. It was such a welcome change from staying in a hotel or guest house as it gave us more room to relax in, a full kitchen and a balcony with a view of the river and of nearby castle ruins up among the vineyards. I think the apartment was in the 48 Euro range. Also, we stayed at a zimmer outside of Berchtesgaden in Konigsee where it was possible to walk 10 minutes or so into the town. They have a nice boat ride and the town, tho touristy is very nice, many restaurants, etc.

If you have any questions please let me know. Enjoy your trip!

Thanks, Susan for the hotel recommendation in Meersburg. Do you happen to remember the name of the place you stayed in Berchtesgaden?
