I got back from the airport today from a training in Germany. While there I stayed at Ochsen Post Hotel in the village of Tiefenbronn not too far from Hausen, where I had my training. The hotel is right in the middle of town, where dozens of dummies are placed on trees, walls, lamposts and roofs, which heralds the oncoming Carnival. One thing the hotel has an abundance of is atmosphere. You have to be there to experience it.

Here's the lobby area, with its green walls and old decoration. According to the person at the front desk the building was constructed in 1630.

An upright piano in a corner of the lobby, close to the front desk.

The door and hallway into my hotel room (14), at the third floor of the building. The mirror on the left there kind of said I need to lose some weight.


On the right of the hallway from the above viewpoint, is the bathroom. There is a hairdryer if anyone's interested. I never had to use it. Come to think of it, I don't think I even combed my hair.


A view from the hallway, showing the two beds, and the window. Very comfortable. This camera angle is basically the qiblat direction.


What's the view like outside the window? Take a look.


I think that's a bank. And by the following day the meager remains of the snow had all but melted.


Meanwhile, there exists a fantastic restaurant at the ground floor, which you can access from the lobby. It's like a garden restaurant within a greenhouse enclosure.


The breakfast selection we had every morning. I usually go for the orange juice, the yoghurt, the cereal, the omelette, the croissant and the coffee. See comment above about the mirror.


Jerry and Simon, two of my coursemates from Ireland, one military and the other not, demostrating what you can do with the breakfast laid out for us.


One of these days I have got to go back there with Ain and Irfan. I'm sure they'd love it there.
