Local Specialties

If you don’t care about mountains and lakes, mountain-biking or skiing, the Black Forest is still a destination worth visiting simply because of its culinary excellence. There are plenty of high-end restaurants serving regional specialties. One town is even known as ‘Germany’s Secret Gourmet Capital’ with its restaurants having been awarded Seven Michelin Stars. But there is no need to visit well-known expensive restaurants to taste the local specialties. Each Black Forest town usually has one or more guest houses serving culinary treats. And if you happen to visit Germany in the summer months the famous Straussen- and Besenwirtschaften are open and for sure something you will write home about!
