Formed of four 16th century mansions, the Hotel Eisenhut stands proudly in the heart of Rothenburg.

A short walk from Marienplatz Square lays Hotel Torbräu, one of Munich’s oldest hotels.

Schloss Fuschl, Salzburg

Standard Room | Including Breakfast | 3 Nights

A fairy-tale chateau located on a peninsula in Lake Fuschl, the Schloss Fuschl promises a peaceful and tranquil stay.
