Subject: Re: Germany, Austria, Czech Republic

I can recommend from my experience on a Rick Steves tour last year in June:

Bacharach (We caught the Rhine cruise from St Goar down to Bacharach) Hotel Kranenturm But it is *right* on the train line - it didn't bother me but it might bother you! The rooms were lovely as was the food.

Reutte (Austria) (We walked through the forest across the Austria/Germany border to Mad King Ludwig's Neuschwanstein) It's not a B&B but it is a small hotel. Great if you have a car. Nice country setting.

Hope this helps :) Megan Brisbane, Australia
