The staff was wonderful from beginning to end. The hotel is in the middle of a nature preserve so completely quiet (except the cow bells). The views are amazing and one night it was incredibly clear and we went out and saw more stars than I've ever seen outside of a planetarium (there is no light in the area). Our room was quite large and the balcony was wonderful. As an American, I missed the air conditioning at night, as I really don't like the bugs from the open windows, but that's just a personal thing. Also we had an assigned table for breakfast (the food was fabulous) so we couldn't really mix with other guests as we had hoped. The hotel is about 15 minutes south of the village of Oberstdorf, so if you're looking to have shops and restaurants nearby, plan ahead. But there is plenty to do in the area and it's an easy drive back into the village. Also no refrigerator in the room, which we missed, so plan ahead for that.
