reutte

when visiting fussen germany and the neuschwanstein castle an alternative place to stay is reutte austria. reutte is a short drive over the austrian border from fussen. a couple of years ago i visited fussen over the weekend and all the hotels were booked so i drove to reutte in austria and found this wonderful inn (pictured) in central reutte. the gasthof schwarger adler is over 500 years old but with modern facilities. the family that owned the inn were very friendly and spoke perfect english. but the real surprise was the inn was very inexpensive and served a great breakfast. it was one of those pleasant surprises when you get off the beaten track. reutte is a tiny town and you can see all the sights in an hour. there are a couple of restraurants and a bar downtown. near by is the ruins of ehrenberg castle.

an interesting historical tidbit about reutte, in 1945 the americans captured the nazi rocket scientist wernher von braun here. later, von braun became the "father" of the american space program.
