We stayed at Der Sonnberg for a couple of days this month. It was a lovely hotel with a terrific view of the valley and lake below. Nicole was extremely charming and made us feel right at home. The only negative is that the hotel is high on the surrounding hills around the town and can be difficult to go... More

Nicole and Thomas are hard working, friendly and conscientious hosts of a clean, modern and up market Hotel. We stayed for a week in December and enjoyed their hospitality.
