Our hotel, Osnabruck, Germany

Our hotel in Osnabruck, the first city we stayed in. Old, rustic, beautiful.... everything you might imagine from a German hotel.
This is the street front side of it. The lower portion is actually a restaurant, we ate there with the company one night. Of course the food was incredible! They served us a pumpkin soup that was out of this world, and I don't like that kind of thing. Notice what looks like a narrow alley to the right of the hotel. That is the street you drove down to get to the front/lobby of the hotel.

Sign on the hotel saying it was built in 1690 and I really don't know what else.

Also part of the hotel.

This is the narrow street we entered and left the hotel from. I am amazed at how narrow some of the streets were. When the bus came to pick us up for excursions, we had to walk quite a way to it because it could not fit down the streets. By the way, it was a double decker bus. I have always wanted to ride on the top level of one of those. It was so cool!

Our beautiful room, I loved the decor. It was so comfy and homey, these apples were left for us when we checked in.
OK, call me crazy, but I had to take a picture of the toilet. It flushes by pressing the rectangle thingy on the wall. All of the toilets work that way in Germany.

The lion that stood outside our room. You can also see the courtyard and small restaurant behind it. The hotel had the big restaurant by the street, then this small one by the courtyard, and it was mighty tasty. I had a sandwich, and I don't know if I was just thrilled out of my gourd or what, but the food just seemed to taste so much better there in Germany.

A shot from the courtyard. Wish I had taken more pictures because of course it was beautiful.

I am even enthralled by the windows there. You can crack them open at the top, or turn the handle the other way, and open it completely.
The window of our room, plus you can see more of the courtyard.
Our window cracked from the outside.

Silly me, while waiting to go eat dinner at the castle I told hubby " back up, now to your right". Ha ha, I'm so funny.
