eating an old meal

Last night Karl and I ate dinner at our town's oldest continually running restaurant and inn, Zum Schwanen. (In this photo the restaurant is in the white building with the green shutters to the left.)



Since 1618, Zum Schwanen has been serving traditional German food and offering a bed for the night in the old city center of Bühl.



This is the first time we had been there. I loved the comfy interior...this kind of coziness is very typical of Germany.





The walls were covered with old images of Bühl. And the dinner was just as cozy and yummy! I had a very typical German meal of roast beef with gravy, sweet red cabbage, and potato dumplings...a meal that has probably been on the menu at Zum Schwanen for the entire 390 years it's been serving the citizens of Bühl!

Looks so cozy! I love how quaint the street looks... must be amazing to be able to be there where there is so much history.
