Kid's Corner and Baby Room

Kid's Corner and Baby Room

The Kid's Corner (Picture Book Corner) is a place where guests spending the evening at the inn can interact and relax. From the conversations of small children playing together, a warm feeling develops that often results in their parents getting acquainted as well.
Parents can also rest at ease knowing that the baby room is available through the night and is equipped with a water tap that supplies water usually set to 60, a disinfecting set for baby bottles, and a microwave oven for warming baby food to make it easy for nursing babies in the middle of the night. So, relax and enjoy a family excursion with small children.
