More about Best Western Hotel Hofgut Sternen

a place of history & a great modern hotel

by globetrott about Hofgut Sternen

Maybe you like to stay in a great hotel far away from traficnoises or In case that the hotels in the city of Freiburg are fully booked, why dont you go a bit outside and book in an old, historic hotel : Goethe stayed there in 1779, princess Marie Antoinette in 1770 ,composer Mendelson Bartholdy in 1837 (& in 2004 even globetrott) were staying there and enjoyed their stay in the remote and quiet place close to Ravenna-Schlucht. The building, where Goethe spent the night, is part of the hotel as well, see my 2nd picture ! Hofgut Sternen combines the traditional style of the black-forest-architecture with all of the comfort,that you will expect from a modern hotel.
There are 44 rooms in the hotel and large conference-facilitities. See more details on my link below !

Best Western Hotel Hofgut Sternen. It is located in a quiet park area by a running river, surrounded by trees and mountains. Very nice breakfast included.

The Goethe-haus in Hofgut Sternen

by globetrott

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was not only a famous author and poet, but also a lawyer and working in the governement in Weimar .
In 1779 he got the title "Geheimrat" and in that same year he stayed some days in Hofgut Sternen and he also was drawing the unique landscape of the "Höllental"
" Fels im Höllental " is one of the famous drawings of Geheimrat Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Goethe was living in the small house, close to Hofgut Sternen, that you may see on my picture.

Marie Antoinette came to Hofgut Sternen in 1770

by globetrott

Marie Antoinette - the austrian princess and youngest daughter of empress Maria Theresia came to Hofgut Sternen in 1770, when she was just 14 years old and was on the way to Paris, where she was supposed to meet her future husband, the 15 years old Ludwig - the later king Ludwig XVI.
Above the entrance to the hotel you may still see a painting commemorizing that special event and you may imagine, what such a royal carriage looked like.
You may as well see,that the hotel did not change since that time and on the left of the picture you may also see the small church of St.Oswald.

Best buy for Cuckoo Clock

by moorerc51

I will be visiting Germany and Austria at the end of June and through 19th July. Be at Oberramergau for Passion Play and on through Austria and Switzerland returning through the Black Forest to Frankfurt. Which location is best to buy a black forest clock? What should I expect to pay for a good 8 day non electronic clock?

Re: Best buy for Cuckoo Clock

Oberramergau is probably your best bet unless you wish to search for a less touristy place to purchase one on your return trip through the Black Forest. Keep in mind however that German retail stores do not keep US hours, and will be closed on most Saturdays, every Sunday and probably by 6pm on weekdays.

Your chances for "last minute" shopping will be slim.

When we traveled through the Black Forest many years ago we came across the Hofgut Sternen, a complex with a hotel and a store where they sell those clocks. Check out their website below. The prices of their 8-day clocks start at 199 euros, and you could order online. I'm not sure if they're the cheapest but at least you have some figures to guide you. Hope this helps.

I had not noticed that German retail stores mostly close on Saturdays: quite the opposite, in fact.

Re: Best buy for Cuckoo Clock

by Kakapo2

Leics is correct, retail stores are not closed on Saturdays. However, in less busy areas of cities and in small villages they are only open in the morning or until 1 or 2pm.

Having said this, the shops are open the whole day and many also on Sundays in tourist towns.

Of course, you have the biggest choice of Black Forest clocks in the Black Forest. There you can also see the biggest coockoo clock in the world, in the town of Triberg. The streets are lined with souvenir and clock shops, and you should find a nice one, not just kitsch.

Prices vary dramatically, depending on what you want, with or without music, and how much you are willing to pay. I would say the price for nice small clocks start at 100 to 150 Euro. If you look at the following website you get prices in US$, ranging from 250 to unlimited...
