This was an excellent hotel which seemed to be a place where people returned year after year. The staff were extremely friendly, but still formal in a rather old fashioned way. My wife and I were referred to as Herr and Frau Williams. The bedroom was clean, spacious and well furnished and had a balcony overlooking the countryside. The dining room and reception area were immaculate. The location was perfect; in the middle of forested hills but a few minutes drive to the town which was within day trip distance of Baden Baden, Calw, and most of the Black Forest. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a quiet holiday at a reasonable price in the Black Forest.
This comfortable hotel in a forest setting on the edge of the village of Schriesheim was a real find. Staff were efficient and friendly. There was a group of long distance cyclists staying there one of the nights we were there, as well as a number of other guests and the staff coped well. The rooms were well presented and we had a quite spectacular view of the surrounding forest from our room, especially the balcony. A good choice if you want to stay in the area; it is only 15 km to Heidelberg and about 70 km to the northern edge of the Black Forest.
It is a family-run hotel with good value for the money. They offer ample rooms, all with balcony and view into the mountains. Single rate was 45 EUROS (Apr. 2010) incl. good breakfast. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Kitchen offers local dishes - good portions - at reasonable prices. Located a little outside the city of Baiersbronn it is a good starting point to explore the Black Forest.
Value for the money
I spent some time in Dobel (both business and pleasure) and the "Linde" (this is how the locals call it) has always been my preferred home away from home. The owners - the Ruff family - are very welcoming and nice. The owner apparently is also the chef in the enclosed restaurant. After all meals have been served he makes his round from table to table, sits down with the guests, chats, and makes everyone feel welcome.
The rooms are very clean and basic, but offer everything you need: Shower & Toilet, TV, Closet, etc.
During my last stay I have been told that they are implementing wireless internet in all rooms as well.
What I like most about the Linde is the view from the rooms. On sunny days you can overlook the Black Forest and Karlsruhe. Very romantic! :)
Oh and the food is very yummy too! The guesthouse is popular with locals, too! Every night people gather up at the "Stammtisch", drink beers and chat with tourists. Quite an insider access! :)

This campsite is situated just off the main road through the Black Forest although I did not notice the sound of the cars. We stayed here in early June 2008 so i presume the digger going past our tents for a few hours in the afternoon was for works in preparation for the summer season. I wouldn't have minded so much had my dear friend Suet not been driving all day & just wanted some rest. That aside this campsite was in a great position although it tended to cater more for mobile caravans rather than tents - to say that the pitches we were given was on rocky ground would have been an understatement!!
The facilities were excellent, the reception area consisted of tourist information and a cafe selling food & drink aswell as a small range of camping items. The shower and toilet blocks were very clean indeed although beware of the cleaning woman - woe betide you if you want to go into the shower/toilet block when she's cleaning them!!
The countryside surrounding the campsite is stunning and there are numourous waymarked walking trails to follow.
When we hiked on Feldberg, we saw that hotel. Seems to be a sport hotel. They offer a lot of fun things there. If you go there in winter, don't forget your ski. You can do skiing just in front of the door!
I wanted to book there a room, but we have been too late. It was complete. But I am sure I will go there one day.
Seems that they have also a wellness offer there. And for skiing and hiking it seems to be an excellent place.
Wiedener Eck is a hotel where we stayed in november. So we wanted to have pool and also a sauna for the bad weather (which we didn't have).
It is on the top of the mountains, just between the Muenstertal and the Wiesenthal. From there, you can hike to Belchen in about 2,5 h or even to the Feldberg.
The owner is an excellent cook. . He creates fantastic local food.
This family has a beutiful 2 bedroom apartment for rent on the top floor of their family house. Bathroom, full kitchen, and TV. Starting at $33 per night and a requested three night stay. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SPEAK GERMAN. Great views. This is a very central location to the Black Forest area. Easy drive to Straussberg, Freiburg, Triberg, and the scenic routes throught the forest.
The family operates an orchard and schnapps distillery. The family is very friendly and offers tasting of thier excellent distilled products (schnapps and likour). Stag deer on the farm.
Nice site, with lots of semi permanant pitches. Internet access @ the reception & lovely, clean facilities.Views over the Rhien & in to France
