Welcome to the Schwarzwald region in Baden-Württemberg, the Black Forest mountain range.
We stayed at the Elztalhotel – it’s a place with a good and balanced blend of German folklore, modern acommodations and excellent food. They also offer a good range of wellness options you can choose from – from peelings to massages.
Their kitchen is great and regional. But we’d like to let you know that they will do everything to fullfill your wish if you if you’d like to eat something which is not part of the days offer. Unfortunately this time we were not able to take pictures – dinner was a bit late and there were too many people around for our gusto.
There is also a path around the hotel, in case you want to explore the direct surrounding, with benches to rest.
At the end of our way around we did not expect to find this gems, a little fountain and a rose garden:
One day we took a walk down into the valley, from the Elztalhotel to Oberwinden, continued our way to Winden and then Niederwinden and back to the Hotel – the distance in total we made was 6.5 km and the total height difference was about 235 m.
Some images from Oberwinden:
Freiburg is about half an hour away from Oberwinden. You can get there for free with the KONUS Guest Card which is offered by the hotel. Freiburg is best known for its old town which is only about 5 minutes by foot from the railway station.
There we took a little walk and a hot drink at Sam’s.
Last but not least, after a long day the beatiful sunset from our balcony:
