The hotel stands in an elevated position overlooking a beautiful village of around 1500 inhabitants and surrounded by the hills and forests of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest). It is in a quiet location but still close to the village centre. It was purpose built as a hotel around 40 years ago and is ideally located for exploring both the Black Forest and the Alsace area of France – the French border is about 30 minutes drive. The B500 Schwarzwaldhochstraße (Black Forest High Road) is just 5 minutes away, this is a popular and very scenic tourist route through the area. The village is also a popular destination for walking holidays.

It is easily accessible to guests from around the world – around 7 hours drive from Calais for guests from the UK and within easy driving distance of several airports, the nearest being just 35 minutes away.

Living and working in the Black Forest is idyllic. The pace of life is a little slower and the people are genuinely warm, friendly, helpful and completely honest. The seasons are defined – snow in the winter, sunshine in the summer and lovely warm, fresh days in spring and autumn. Every town and village has its own Bürgermeister (Mayor) and there is a sense of pride and tradition which is refreshing in this day and age.

Current Owners

We are an English couple. We are selling the business so we can semi-retire.

Running The Hotel

We run the hotel ourselves, just the two of us. A traditional German continental breakfast is included in our prices and we have a small self-service bar for drinks and nibbles. We don't offer evening meals. The turnover could be increased considerably if evening meals were offered. Our main season runs from Easter to the end of October and winter business is also available although we choose to take our holidays between November and February and so only have occasional guests in during these months. When we bought the hotel we only had a very limited knowledge of the German language and we are still far from fluent. However this doesn't pose a problem – professionals such as Doctor's, Dentists, Bank Managers etc always have a good knowledge of English.

The Property

The owners' accommodation covers the entire top floor of the hotel and consists of 3 bedrooms (1 en-suite), an office, a bathroom and spacious open plan living room/dining room/kitchen.

The guest bedrooms are all on the first and second floors. We have 4 double rooms, 4 triple rooms, 2 twin rooms and 1 single room. Therefore, at present, at full capacity the maximum number of guest beds is 25.

All of our double and triple rooms have a private, south facing, balcony with wonderful views of the valley.

The ground floor consists of a reception area, kitchen, dining room, ironing room, self-service bar, additional guest toilets and two storage rooms.

In addition there is an indoor swimming pool on the ground floor which is currently not used, this could probably be re-opened but would almost certainly require some equipment replacing beforehand. As the swimming pool covers a large area it would also be possible to convert this to an alternative use – perhaps a leisure area/larger dining room, a holiday apartment or owners accommodation thus enabling the current owners flat to be used as a holiday apartment.

The Sale

In the initial stages of selling an ongoing business it is important to protect the identity of the property. Therefore we are including some photographs of the inside of the hotel and views of the area on this website but no photographs of the outside of the building. We will be happy to provide full details, including precise location, name and trading figures to genuinely interested prospective buyers.
