    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We lived in the hotel „Zur Muehle“ on conditions of a half-board and consequently had supper at the restaurant every evening. Unfortunately I did not remember names of dishes. A variety and high quality of dishes made upon us very good impression.

    Chief-cook Peter Schneider perfectly prepares for various firm dishes from the Nieder Rhine.

    When I found out, that the SV-2006 championship would take place in Oberhausen, I was upset a little. The city conglomerate of industrial Ruhr did not promise good arrangement. However I managed to find a hotel in 30 kilometers from Oberhausen in rural green district of Gahlen which was so necessary for walks with dogs.

    We overcame distance of 30 kilometers usually for a half of an hour all over on local small roads, then on a highway 223 which joined the autobahn 516 which conducted to the center of Oberhausen and to the stadium.
