Gästehaus Gerti

This time we booked only one night at Gästehaus Gerti on our way back to Stuttgart, arrived to Nassereith in the afternoon and actually planned and did have some time to visit a few things around. But the place was so nice and welcoming (reminded me about my stays at grandma's when I was a little kid), the town was so quiet and gorgeous, that we decided not to see any more gorges today and simply have a little rest, walk around and have some fun.

My offline map in Pocket Earth showed that there is a restaurant nearby, right behind a small lake (Nassereithsee), and we decided to go there for an early dinner which we were going to polish later at the balcony with a couple of beers we had left in the trunk.

The walk from the gastehaus to Seebua restaurant takes about 20 minutes, goes through a small downtown with a church, and a short trail around the lake at the end. The lake is very nice, has a couple of artificial swans peacefully swimming in it and apparently lots of real fish; we've seen a family who actually just caught something looking like a trout, mom and little sister where holding the fish on the ground by fins and tail, and a 10-12 y.o. boy was trying to kill it hitting its head with a stick. Dad was standing right next to them with a fishing rod trying to catch more. Apparently the restaurant was still closed, maybe that's why.

More pictures of the lake, the swans, surrounding mountains, the church and the restaurant are here.

Funny that the lady at the restaurant pretended that she did not speak English at first, but after the drink when I asked "so you are open at six, right?", she answered loud and clear "No-no. The kitchen opens at half past five". So we had a nice Weissbier and a coffee outside, then walked around the lake a little bit, and returned back at 17:30, this time took a table inside because outside felt breezy. It's nice, quiet and cozy there, and the food is very good. We were lucky that it was not neither Monday nor Tuesday because apparently the restaurant is closed on those days, and we did not see a lot of other go out options around.

Well, it seems that winter season in Nassereith is much more active because of all nearby ski resorts, 

but that works pretty much for everything in Alps. Anyway, Gästehaus Gerti I would recommend to everyone any time of year.
