the lockdown means for our business that only necessary accommodation is allowed. Food and drinks (also breakfast) are possible for necessary accommodation. Therefore, we do not have regular opening hours as usual. Breakfast is usually included unless otherwise agreed. For the month of January (or as long as the lockdown lasts at the beginning of 2021), we ask for your understanding that this will probably only be possible to the room. At check-in you are welcome to discuss your breakfast preferences (especially the time). The standard breakfast during this time consists of juice, coffee, cold cuts, cheese, jam, bread rolls and croissants. For dinner, generally only a small menu is possible at this time. Here, too, a time is then arranged with the guest. What is necessary accommodation? As far as we have understood from the Bavarian Ministry of Health, it means that it must not serve tourist purposes and it must be credibly necessary. Irrespective of this, the contact restrictions that are currently in force and, of course, the general infection control measures also apply to our business. Thank you for your understanding, your Opel family.

Our explanation of the service flat rate on the bill
According to a published ruling by the Federal Finance Court (BFH, file no. XI R 11/14), the provision of hotel parking spaces is subject to the general VAT rate of 19 percent. This applies even if no agreement has been reached between the hotel and the guest on the use of the car park and no separate fee is payable by the guest, the court stated.
A DEHOGA statement states that "free use" of hotel car parks is not permitted under the BFH. However, the use of parking spaces could be part of a flat-rate price for ancillary services, such as a business package. This also applies to business travellers. Since the use of a hotel parking space for business travellers is for business purposes, these costs could be reimbursed by the employer tax-free as incidental travel expenses. (For example, also concerns the use of communication networks)
We and our company are not responsible for the tax law conditions, only for their application. Many thanks for your understanding.
FEDERAL FINANCIAL COURT Judgement of 1.3.2016, XI R 11/14
Brand new: from today we have not only a digital possibility of registration for restaurant visitors, but also a digital menu per App. 06.10.2020
We change the opening hours of the restaurant. It was a very nice, but also a very busy autumn with many nice guests from near and far. We had a lot of fun, but a little bit of relaxation is also necessary. From this week on we have not opened the restaurant on Friday and Sunday evening. We will announce changes on the website again. Monday to Thursday from 17:30 and Saturday from 17:30. This has no influence on the operation of the hotel. Breakfast will continue to be served daily for house guests, if you wish. All the best and stay healthy.
