Back in Karlsruhe again and this time I have another lady from Texas visiting with her daughter to wander around with me during the day while everyone was at work. Her name is Cheryl and her daughter Lee works for Siemens in Houston. If you have followed our travels you will remember Lee from our December trip when it was so darn cold. Snowy cold then but much better now.

We are staying at a quirky place called the Hotelwelt Kubler. The u has an umlaut but I can’t figure out how to do it this computer. Hotel Kubler is very different from our other hotel we stay at while here in Karlsruhe. The website is http://4a-hotelwelt.de/?page_id=125 and if you are interested, check it out. Meanwhile I will post some pics to give you an idea how unusual it is.

Most of the rooms have some sort of theme. This is our room which is right over the Badisch Brauhaus on the fifth floor.

Big bathroom with bathtub I can almost swim in. This is good for when one walks too much and the feet hurt.

Cool funky balcony overlooking the restaurant.

The view to our left

The view to our left. If you look down you will see the glass roof that opens every morning and closes every night. Can get quite loud in the evening when a soccer game is on the big screen T.V.’s in the bar.

And the view across from our room.

Cheryl and I explore when the housekeepers are cleaning the rooms that people have checked out of. More strange theme stuff.

Wooden buildings like this are all around the hotel property.

There are many buildings with hotel rooms, apartments for longer term, and special themed rooms all around the property.

At night it sort of locks like a fun house in places.

One of the special rooms looks like a giant boulder from the outside and on the inside- like this.

Apparently this crane is a permanent fixture so they can lift more little cabins in onto the property when they wish.

There are even funny little barrel places to sit and have dinner if you choose inside the brauhaus.

If I am correct there are 4 levels to the Badisch Brauhaus. A bar on the 4th level, the main restaurant on the 3rd, a special medieval dining room on the 2nd with the original copper kettles for beer brewing, and a basement. Each level has many little crooks and nannies- oops, I mean (that expression is for Sheila) nooks and crannies around every corner you explore.

There is a slide that winds down three levels to the basement floor. And yes after one good German beer most adults will be more daring. We all did and it was Fun!

The view with the slide in the main restaurant. The slide is right there on the right hand side by the bar. Get ready, set, go...

The Hotel Kubler is an experience and you must appreciate odd little touches of eccentricities to stay here. We love it. Hope you enjoy the pictures. I will be back tomorrow to tell you about my lovely experience in Bad Dürkheim with an Airedale Terrier named Ina and her person, Ursula.

Be back soon,

Karen
