Stayed for a weekend break that turned into 4 days of touring and activities and the Hotel Witnerberg made for a perfect base. The staff all speak English, very well and tolerated my German with grace. Danke. The decoration is typical for the area and made me feel very at home.
The rooms are well appointed and clean to white glove inspection standards. The bed was uber comfortable so much so that I found it very difficult to get up in the mornings. It must be the combination of great food, beer and the mountain air because I slept like a baby every night for four nights.
The breakfasts were lovely with fresh rolls, meats and cheese. There were other options but with fresh bread and excellent coffee I was in heaven.
There's so much to do here that I could easily have spent the week here. I know the area well and yet each time I go back I find something new or something that I've missed before now. The area is great for cycling, fishing, walking. Skiing, bob-sleigh an dog sledge rides in the Winter. If you intend on staying here for skiing then the nearest lift is less than three minutes walk, in boots, with equipment. Great.
The staff looked after our bikes and made sure that they were safe and sound. A Dutch visitor staying near by had his expensive mountain bikes stolen from the roof rack while checking in. Lucky for him there was CCTV and German police were able to stop the van and recover the bikes undamaged. The thieves couldn't explain why the front wheels of "their" bikes were missing but the Dutch guy had the wheels in the boot of his car and the Police were very happy with that. Keep you bikes locked and secured. I heard so many tales of bikes going missing this summer.
All this is a great hotel and I look forward to staying here again at Christmas.
