Good ice cream. The historic value adds to the uniqueness of this. Parking can be a pain but they move you through quickly.

Yes they do take cards & AMEX
I'm planning a trip to the Dorlinbach/Schuttertal area by myself. I don't speak German. Is the Gasthaus Adler staff multi-lingual? Is there a restaurant on-site? Is there a taxi service available to get back and forth from Dorlinbach?
