Beuron and its Benedectine Abbey of St Martin were at one time, very important pilgrimage sites in Germany.
We arrived in Beuron around dusk with no hotel reservation and so we stopped and asked the three older ladies we saw walking on the street. They were not local, and so they told us that they were staying at the only proper hotel in the "downtown", the Pelikan Hotel.
The hotel it is housed in a nice building on the main street and one can easily see that in the heydays of pilgrimage it was a very busy place. The facilities are somewhat under used but still retain some of the nostalgia of good old times.
It is a very nice hotel although, at least nowadays, very simple and spartan. Rooms are clean, good size - but no TV or internet. Very clean and functional washroom.
The hotel was probably built in the 60s or early 70s and so nothing is quite new and modern, but even so it was very pleasant and comfortable. The lady who checked us in was very nice and helpful.
Parking was free and the breakfast was included. Typical German breakfast - traditional semmeln (bread roll) with all the trimmings - from good smoked bacon to equally good cold cuts, butter...etc....etc. Everything very good and tasty!More
