In the center of Bodenmais, the Hotel Adam, on busy Bahnhofstrasse across from the tourist office, has grown from a small café to a 32-room hotel with its own brewery. It offers the same wood-dominated rusticity as the Riederin but is newer.

The comfortable guest rooms are all alike and contain a sofa, two soft chairs, television, phone, minibar and twin washbasins in the bathroom. Most have a balcony. Room Number 128 is on the quiet side of the hotel.

The Adam's small, but very up-to-date brewery, which guests can arrange to tour, sparkles with gleaming tile, stainless steel and highly burnished copper. Braumeister Thomas Klaus is right out of central casting. A huge man with a massive stomach and ruddy, round face, he makes outstanding Export and Pilsner beer twice a week. The latter, he says, has less hops and is good for schlaufend (sleeping). Export has more malt and makes for big bellies.

Be sure to stop for a beer at the Adam, even if you don’t stay there. If you plan to be in Bodenmais for just a day or two, the Adam is our choice. The Riederin is better suited to longer visits.
