I took my plane from Tokyo to Vienna and then to Stuttgart by Austrian Airways. Food was good but long flight of 11 hrs from to Austria and then 1 hr around to Stuttgart and 1hr to Alfdorf by taxi. Taxi in night cost around 100 Euros , but expensive though.
|History of Hotel Hirsch|
I stayed in Hotel Gasthof Hirsch , small but nice. According to its history , it was build in 1907 and seen many reforms. Food was nice , 5 Euro breakfast , around 10 Euro Dinner and per day charge around 69 Euros.This hotel is an excellent place to stay and feels like home. Hotel is run by a very warm and polite family who take very good care of you. All rooms are nice and traditional. Food is excellent and feels home made. Breakfast also has a good spread and filling. You can also cook your own food if you wish and may ask for a room with attached kitchen. Internet is free in the room and the speed is not bad. I would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone.

There is one small mall also nearby but nothing much in there except grocery.Sunday is closed everywhere in Germany and as my hotel dinner too. Friday, Saturday and Sunday there was no dinner , but luckly I left on Saturday morning so it was OK. I think its hard to spend time on weekend here if one is on official trip and cant spend much , though good German steak and food, loved the beer.
