Hallo!  

Yours truly

Here's an establishement built in 1912 as one of the last of many great hotels in this area of the Harz mountains. During its life the resort has had almost as many different names as number of guests. Despite the very scenic location with view over the mountains and deep forests the resort was closed in 1990 after years and years of poor maintenance.
