Hophen am See
Hopfen am See
At the Füssen tourism office, we discovered Hopfen am See, a cute lakeside town about 5 miles outside of Füssen, with regular public bus connections.
The agent at the
tourism office directed us to Frau Keller's Gasthaus (guest house),
a few blocks up the hill. We had a large bedroom suite, a kitchen,
living room, and veranda with a large picturesque window overlooking
the lake. The rate was quite reasonable, $45 a night (in 1993). At
first, we had no idea what rate we had agreed to pay. Frau Keller
spoke no English. Bob could only recall snatches of German words and
phrases from his high school days. Frau resorted to sign language
to ask us a question, which we, after several sign gestures, figured
out to be, "How many nights do you wish to stay?"
Disclaimer: Some people have asked for more information about Frau Keller's Gasthaus. We're sorry, but we don't have this info. Please check with the Hopfen am See tourism office.
