Food and drinks

Here it’s true: the way to the heart really is through the stomach. If nothing else, a holiday in the Black Forest is worth it simply for the food on offer. And to experience the culinary excellence of the Black Forest does not necessarily mean a trip to one of the renowned top restaurants of the region with their many crests, stars, and cooking spoons.

A quick glance on the menu of the village guest houses will often reveal a surprising selection of culinary treats. Traditional Baden or Swabian dishes such as goose liver, Gugelhupf (a type of ring cake), Venison Baden-Baden, a vanilla and poppy seed cake, or Black Forest gateau (Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte), turn a regular holiday into an epicurean delight.

The Black Forest for wine enthusiasts

Anyone who hears the word Black Forest thinks firstly of mountains and forests. But the low mountain range only forms about two thirds of the holiday region, to which it gives its name.
