We stayed for 5 nights, and left with the feeling that we had seen the REAL Germany this time around. This was our third time in Germany, and we had done the major sites like museums, castles, etc. What we never did was get the feeling that we were anything other than tourists. At 1556 Haus, we met locals, saw local sites, ate in non-toursit restaurants, laughed and drank wine with the locals in this charming wine region. It was a little more expensive than some other properties, but came with so many extras that it was well worth the money. If you want to get a feel for what Germany is really like, this is THE PLACE!
