Bermatingen Building land

Zander House B & B is actually in Ahausen, c.2K south of Bermatingen. Mrs. Zander speaks no English but she smiles a lot and we managed to get along fine. The house is on a very short cul de sac surrounded by farmland and is absolutely quiet. We had a large, clean room w / an American style bathroom across the hall.

The house is quite nice but the real attraction was the town. We went to Ahausen by accident (everything closer to the Lake was full.) It is the friendliest town I have ever visited in Europe. The proprietor of the only (quite good) restaurant in town came to the door to tell us he was closed but provided us w / beer & sausage. Anytime we sat down locals came up and started a conversation. Usually with the opening, "You're Americans right? What the heck are you doing in Ahausen? Nobody comes here." We ended up spending two evenings playing "bochi" ball w / 4 guys who Introduced themselves at the Village Beer garden - Which also has good food. House Zander is a good place to stay but the town was the highlight of our trip.
