      I would like to change that to; Pingyao Ancient City, a well-preserved, centuries-old settlement in north China's Shanxi Province:

        Well done ombugge!

        You got the right answer, Ping Yao is the correct place!

        Next puzzle is yours!

          Will someone wake Ombugge up? He's overdue with the next puzzle.

            OMG I forgot that I was the proud winner of the last puzzle.
            After some frantic searching for another obscure beach, or island nobody have heard of somewhere in S.E.Asia, I had settle for a very fresh picture of an obscure cafe somewhere along the Trans Euro Trail.
            I do not expect the name, exact location/position of this particular cafe. Name of a nearby town and the country will do:

                Not at all. That promises to be a good one... We have just to check 38.000km to find a certain house... Easy peasy!

              Is it in the eastern part of Europe? Poland? Or Serbia?

                Not in Poland or Serbia. Eastern Europe? Depends on your definition, geographical or political.
                Kind of straddle the geographical boarder between East and West Europe.I presume. (That should narrow it down to a few thousand km of the TET)
                As I said, I do NOT expect you to name or position of this particular cafe/lodge. Which country and name of district, or nearest city/town of any size will do.

              The landscape and the trees remind me on my own surroundings in the Black Forest. So i think it is somewhere in the same level.
              We have such landscapes also in Poland, (the TET does not touch Czech Republik), Slovakia and Romania.
              Because of the modern renovation with the high class chimney and the solar panel preparation i go for the richer land, Slovakia.
              Right path?

              To make it complete, i widened my search to Hungary and Romania. There are some famous mountain areas like Matrá and Bükk, as well as the Carpathians or Transylvania.
              But there is not a single clue in the picture, where it could be. The house seems very fresh renovated and obviously not yet in use. So it could be everything. A small café as you mentioned, a pension, a vacation house, a self service accomodation for hikers or a small restaurant. After checking various touristic sites in both countries and areas i was not able to find it. Since we have no clue, i am not able to find out, in which area or near which city it could be.
              So i (we) will just need some more additional help and advice...

                TET has many different routes and you are obviously following one through Slovakia, Hungary and into Roumania.
                Try a more southerly trail that also take in areas you know well, at least from the sea. This is in the mountains along that trail.
                I don't know the exact usage of the building, but I know that they serve food and drinks there, since our oldest son stopped there for coffee and a bite a few days ago and took this picture. (He is riding his bike along the TET at the moment)

              Well in this area i know well just Croatia. Will i find it there?

                Not in Croatia, but along the trail in a homely direction.

              I am frustrated. I searched very detailed in Slovenia, but could not find this house. Wrong country again?

                Right country. Somewhere along the TET on the way to Croatia.

              Another and larger establishment further along TRT. Not too far away from the one in the puzzle pix, but this one on the Croatian side of the border:
