Comments:

I should state that other as a paying guest I have no connection with any of the accommodation I used on this trip, however I am happy to reply to any e-mail enquiries one might have about the routes, accommodation, tours etc.

Suffice it to say I have used the Enzian Hotel as my main base on two occasion and hope to return to use this as my tour base during 2007.  It is a wonderful hotel with first class staff, accommodation, food, facilities for the bikes and a friendly atmosphere.  If you look at the Enzian website you will find a lot of good information and pictures.  The information is accurate and the pictures are genuine.
