We arrived to find that breakfast would not be available due to ‘staffing problems’, and were offered free cancelation if we chose. We decided to look at the room first, and it was great, almost an apartment, so we stayed. The town of Friedrichshall has a medieval centre well worth a walking tour, and although the major hotel at the castle has a restaurant, we decided to order instead from the all-purpose pizza place across the road, which turns out to offer a huge range of meals - and especially good Indian cuisine. Am Eck was just a convenient location on our drive across Europe, but ended up being very enjoyable. Parking is free very near to the hotel, but there’s no elevator. We’d stay again and next time maybe we’d get breakfast!
