About 3 years ago, I hiked through this village in Austria near its borders with Switzerland and Germany. Unfortunately, neither my friend or I can remember the name of the village. We also ate at a restaurant (had schnitzel) that had been converted from a monastery that overlooked the village. Can anyone help me remember the name of the village or the monastery/restaurant?

    You don't happen to have any picture of the place? How about a faint memory of its approximate geographical location? Just trying to narrow this down. – JoErNanO Nov 24 '15 at 12:54
  • Is it the Burgrestaurant Gebhardsberg in Bregenz? greber.cc/fileadmin/dam/_LAYOUT/banner_ghbg_home.png – RoflcoptrException Nov 24 '15 at 12:54
  • Could be. Attached is a pic of the view – Kaleb Nov 24 '15 at 13:12
  • @Kaleb that looks like Feldkirch. Could't say what the monastery/restaurant was though, so I'll leave this as a comment instead of an answer. – Lukas Graf Nov 24 '15 at 13:19

    Ah ok, then I know what it is. Schattenburg! – RoflcoptrException Nov 24 '15 at 13:25

Google reverse image search says that it might be Feldkirch, Vorarlberg. Indeed the church and the first house in the foreground (the one with the two windows underneath the straight part of the roof) seem to be the ones in the picture below from Wikipedia:

Google maps places it here.

By precise triangulation, arcane magic and top-secred heuristics I'd say that the place you ate was the Schlosswirtschaft Shattenburg:

    yes that must be it meaning the restaurant was a castle not a monastery - tripadvisor.co.uk/… – Kaleb Nov 24 '15 at 13:26

    Yes, and it's not close to the German border. It's close to the Liechtenstein border. – RoflcoptrException Nov 24 '15 at 13:27
  • Memory was a bit hazy on that but yes near the Liechtenstein border – Kaleb Nov 24 '15 at 13:28

It's feldkirch. I live near there.

(It's the view from the schattenburg, the blue "hypo" sign in both pictures is the same sign)
