Lonely Planet review

Not only does the 'Holy Spirit Foundation' have a succession of walnut-panelled rooms, a candlelit cellar (open from 6pm) and a vine-draped garden, but the food is equally inspired. Specialities include Spiessbraten (marinated meat licked by a beechwood fire) and fish plucked live from the concrete trough. The garden's apricot tree produces the handmade jam incorporated in the Marillenpalatschinke (a rolled-up pancake) and fruit for the Marillenknödel (filled yeast dumplings); the schnapps are also homemade.
