It is said that buildings in the Baroque style can always be identified by their steep, layered roofs. If that is so, the Hotel Brudermühle is a classic. The lower layer of its roof is so steep as to be almost vertical. Projecting from it are several dormer windows. Another arresting exterior feature is the elaborate religious sculpture attached to the corner of the building beneath the eaves.

Inside, the 14-room Brudermühle is rustic and simple. One guest room stands out. Number one, a bright, twin-bedded corner room which rents for 150 DM ($88), is perched above a place where the river falls several feet creating roaring rapids, a favorite spot for kayakers. The room has three windows, one looks over the rapids and the other two provide a good close-up look at the Altes Rathaus. There is no elevator.
