Special Kenzingen Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft
Why I like Kenzingen: Kenzingen has a long history reaching back into the 13th century, but it is a very modern-day attraction that may bring you to this town. Europapark Rust, Germany's largest amusement park, is located only 8 miles from Kenzingen. With over 100 attractions and performances, 11 roller coasters, and 13 European-themed areas, this park draws thousands of tourists to the region every summer. Located in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Kenzingen has its own charms though. The entire medieval city center lies under preservation protection. When strolling through this picturesque town, make sure to check out the Rathaus, St. Laurentius Church (the oldest preserved building in the town, founded in 1275), and the Kirnburg Castle ruins. There are plenty of outdoor activities to entertain young and old alike. The Waldklettergarten (high ropes course) is great for older children, and it offers 8 courses with 90 bridges, passages, and climbing nets. Numerous biking routes and hiking routes (look for the brochures showing their locations) extend into the nearby area. You can also rent canoes in Kenzingen to explore the Elz River. If your interests are more culinary than athletic, you will be glad to learn that this area is known for its acclaimed wineries. Also, if possible, schedule your trip to coincide with Kenzingen's medieval-themed city festival in July. You will love the large medieval market complete with old-fashioned goods, artisans demonstrating their skills, street musicians, and knights in full regalia. In terms of day trips, Strasbourg is only about 30 miles away and Freiburg is less than 15 miles away.

Verified & Approved - Quality Kenzingen Vacation Rentals you can Trust!
There is unfortunately a lot of scam and fraud on the Internet today and we read sad stories about families who booked a cheap apartment on a rental site only to find out later when they arrived that this apartment did not even exist! Therefore when you see our LLAG quality seal next to an apartment listing that means that we have verified and approved this particular apartment and you can be assured that this is a good choice when booking this one.
Of course, given our large selection of vacation rentals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland we cannot personally inspect every one of them. However, here is what we do to to ensure overall high quality and minimze the risk of fraud:
First, we are very selective and don't accept apartments of poor quality based on submitted description and photos.
We verify the owner's address, require a web site, and a valid phone number. With many of our property owners we talk with them over the phone on a daily basis and we have built up with them a strong business relationship over the years.
If we experience communication issues with a property owner, e.g. they respond too slowly to inquiries or customer requests, we investigate and possibly cancel our business relationship with that owner. Reason is if we are not able to successfully communicate with an owner, how can we expect that it should work out with a potential tenant?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate (please read our customer testimonials.) However, if a customer reports issues we also immediately investigate. In case of incidents where we believe the quality and overall service of an apartment is no longer up to our standards we also remove that one from our site quickly.
Those quality measures helped us in the past to successfully protect our customers when booking a rental through us. Look for the LLAG quality seal that indicates that we have approved and verified that apartment.
