With meadows on one side and the Salzach River on the other, this wonderfully friendly and welcoming monastery-inn offers some of Bavaria’s most unique accommodations. Its superb location just over the border from Austria makes it the perfect base from which to explore the area.
With no formal reception area, come on into the restaurant to meet your hosts, who will show you upstairs (no elevator) to your room. The atmosphere throughout leans on the rustic side with antique furnishings here and there.
Guest rooms, on the other hand, are quite modern with large, comfortable beds. Décor is stylish with an interesting flair. All of them are located above the restaurant, but the nature of the old construction makes for natural soundproofing. Bathrooms equipped with showers are modern as well.
The restaurant, which specializes in Bavarian cuisine, features a charming, hand-painted, vaulted ceiling. If you can’t make it for a meal, then a romantic beer garden is a fun and friendly place to plan the next day’s adventures.
