I had a great time at Hitgeheim. The tranquillity combined with the stylishly appointed chalets at the invited me to relax and unwind.

I really had a great dining experience as well with fine dining by candlelight with award-winning wines from the walk-in wine cellar provided me with an unforgettable dining experience.
