From The Sunny Side of Germany

The Black Forest has a rich culinary and hotel tradition – you can learn how to make a Black Forest Cake or to cure ham at many modest pensions – but you can also visit the charming town of Baiersbronn, which is home to three of Germany‘s top restaurants which have seven Michelin stars between them.

The tables at Traube Tonbach, the Bareiss, and the Hotel Sackmann are in constant demand and a real source of local pride.

Baiersbronn’s fame and desirability is not just based on Michelin stars however. There are several nearby restaurants, such as Restaurant Meierei and the Andreasstube where the local specialities are a destination for travelers.

Also in the Black Forest — but not in Baiersbronn — the Hotel Dollenberg in Bad Peterstal has an exquisite one Michelin starred restaurant, hundreds of walking and hiking trails as well as incredible spa services.

The Brenners Park Hotel in Baden-Baden is probably Germany’s most famous spa hotel but not so well known is the hotel’s two star Michelin restaurant: the eponymous Brenners Park Restaurant.

At the other end of the Black Forest, Freiburg is home to not only the world-famous university but also the Hotel Colombi, an elegant hotel in the old town steps from the cathedral, with its own baking and pastry making on the premises as well as the Hans Thoma Stube Restaurant that serves local specialities.

In SouthWest Germany, many restaurants are certified members of the Schmeck den Süden, “Taste of the South” movement. This guarantees that only local produce is used in the preparation of meals. In fact, more than 75 hoteliers and restaurateurs have banded together to serve produce that is only grown in the Black Forest – they buy their main ingredients locally and support the local economy.
