The tour of the glassworks was fascinating and informative. The lunch venue and food were delightful. And last, but not least, the castle was impressive.

Goulash makes a stomach ache

Unfortunately the driver didn't speak a word of German and very little English. In addition, he did not make a well-groomed impression; was still not unsympathetic. The German-speaking tour on the Karlsburg then fell into the water. After all, our travel guide has electron. Organized guides (tape). The goulash from lunch in a restaurant in the immediate vicinity of Karlsburg gave me severe stomach ache for 1 week. The tour of the glass factory (in German) was very interesting and instructive.
