Dubbelt så många gäster än va de lovat vid bokning. Inte så bra planering av sällskapen i de olika rummen. Dålig uppmärksamhet vid servering av dricka.

Amazing hotel and restaurant in a genuine castle. Some of the rooms makes you think you moved back in time to the 18th century. Superb menu in the restaurant. Cosy common areas with antiquities and fine view over the Vättern lake.

It is a very nice castle, but there is not very much to see. They don't really serve people coming by as it is more of a hotel.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
