It’s not unknown for hoteliers to have strange ideas. In recent years, we have seen hotels open in sewage pipes, hotels shaped like dogs, and even a hotel designed to resemble a human colon. But a new sausage hotel in Germany could well be the wurst of the lot.
The BB&BB (Boebel Bratwurst Bed and Breakfast) in Rittersbach, a village near Heidelberg, is a temple to all things sausage: sausage-patterned wallpaper, sausage-shaped pillows and soap bars, and, perhaps most unusually, hunks of dried sausage hanging from the walls.
It’s owned by a fourth-generation local butcher called Claus Boebal, who opened the b&b in order to share his passion for the meaty product with the wider world.
