Recently remodeled rooms make the centrally-located Traube another good value. One rather bizarre feature, however, is that all bathrooms are glassed-in, though a curtain can be drawn over the glass for privacy.

Number 17, the "wedding room" has a canopied bed, mirrored ceiling, whirlpool tub and a balcony with a view of the mountains. Depending on the season, it rents for 180 to 240 DM ($117-$156). In summer, the beer garden under chestnut trees is most pleasant. The Traube's ebullient and friendly owner, Reinhard Scheuerl, is an avid golfer.
