  • Hallo? May I ask about a service that I can leave my luggage at the guest house before check-in. For instance, if my check-in were 24th, could I leave it in the morning of 24th? I'm just curious.

    Due to coronavirus pandemic and limited opening hours, it is not possible to leave your luggage before check-in or after check-out. Sorry for the inconveniences. Lockers are available at the train station; or feel free to stay in our common room. :-)
