hotel and restaurant with three Michelin stars, Traube Tonbach is located at the heart of the Black Forest hunting region of Germany, not far from the Baden Baden, and only an hour’s drive from Strasbourg. One of Europe’s most comfortable and beautiful hotels with one of the finest restaurants, Traube Tonbach is a rare place of true luxury, kind service and good manners.
The history of the Traube Tonbach can be traced back to 1789, when Tobias Finkbeiner opened an inn for forest workers in the Baiersbronn village. Since then, the Finkbeiner family has been providing courteous service and warm hospitality to guests. Today, the establishment includes 175 rooms and employs over 200 people to welcome and care for guests, overseen by the current patron of the hotel, Heiner Finkbeiner.
The hotel has three restaurants including the famous Schwarzwaldstube, which earned three Michelin stars, for its gastronomic French cuisine and Mediterranean inspired dishes. Chef Harald Wohlfahrt serves some of the most sought after gastronomic dishes in the region including Medallion of roebuck with red cabbage and cepes mushrooms, Grilled spiny lobster with saffron risotto and pistou sauce, Wild salmon and scallops carpaccio with ginger-lime sauce, Saddle of venison with red currant, juniper berry, and pear, Garlic spaghettini with grilled vegetables and thyme sauce, and a traditional specialty of the restaurant, Calf’s head.
The spacious bedrooms and apartments at Traube Tonbach are spotlessly clean and flooded with lights. Many have terraces and huge picture windows looking out to a grand view of the garden, valley, pine trees, and forest. Vibrant fabrics and wooden furniture brighten up the room and make it a joy to wake up in the morning.
The hotel has its own daily paper, which announces the latest news and the activities of the day including cooking demonstrations, walks, wine tasting, restaurant specialties, music, spa offerings, and other events. There are three swimming pools and a little chapel in the premises.
