Culinary Highlights

Traditional restaurants with regional products and award-winning gastronomy mean that the Black Forest Highlands offer an excellent dining experience.

Natural slow food instead of fast food – The Black Forest now hosts one of Germany’s finest dining experiences. Influenced by nearby Switzerland and France’s nouvelle cuisine today chefs have primarily fresh local products on the menu. The cheese from cows, sheep and goats is produced locally; the wine comes from the nearby Upper Rhine Valley, the sunniest and warmest parts of Germany where also superb asparagus grows. Why not let your customers savor slow food that’s fresh and absolutely sustainable. Plus as an after-dinner drink they’ll enjoy one of the many original shots from the numerous small Black Forest distilleries, often made of rare wild fruits. The famous Black Forest Cake, however, has a good shot of liquor already added to it! If guests have any food intolerance or allergy problems, most hotels have adapted to them as well as serving vegetarian fare.

A holiday in the Black Forest Highlands guarantees authenticity when it comes to the cuisine: whether it is a cosy café or a first class restaurant, the gastronomy of the region offers visitors the chance to savour local specialities. In particular, the certified restaurants of the Nature Park are delighted to serve high-quality, regional products.
