This dazzling boutique hotel is hived out of an old burgher's house at the northern end of the citadel. The restoration left period details like wood-beamed ceilings, while adding tasteful modern bathrooms and plush-linened beds. The Krauss Room, number 2, has original paintings, including a medieval coat of arms, plus a four-poster bed.

Other rooms are a little smaller, though all have quality hardwood furnishings and unique touches such as a fireplace in number 1 and a sunken bed in the attic room, number 9.

Staff are friendly and accommodating and there's a quality restaurant with a fabulous wine list. Rooms are priced by size and some have air-conditioning.
