To only consider Baiersbronn just another medieval city would do it considerable injustice. Baiersbronn is not only a crown jewel within the Black Forest, but a crown jewel within the country of Germany itself.
Of course, there are the more traditional sites to see here, since the town was “born” in 1292.
And to only visit the Klosterreichenbach, a 15th century monastery, and its medieval church would be a travesty since there’s so much more to explore within the heart of the Black Forest, where mountain peaks meet billowy white clouds against an azure sky that seems to go on for eternity.
One of the best features of Baiersbronn is how family friendly it is. For instance, the town gives the little tykes the chance to enjoy a “farm holiday.” There are quite a few bed & breakfasts located near some of the prettiest working farms — where kids can feed chickens, see cows, rabbits, and goats.
The kids may even get a kick at the Fairy Tale Museum here in town or even dancing at the Black Forest Music Festival. And, not to break the budget there are plenty of family restaurants around for great food at a decent price.
For something a bit more upscale for you gourmands, Baiersbronn boasts six (yes, six!) coveted Michelin-star restaurants — including one at the Kneipp Health Resort along with some great spa treatments.
All that great food will certainly energize you to hike up any one of the many hiking trails since there are over 500 km of them around. It may not be for you nature lovers only — those crystal lakes, bright flowers, and rolling meadows are heaven on Earth, aren’t they?
Don’t think for one second that this incredible town rolls up the sidewalks when the first winter snow falls. There are many enjoyable winter activities here too, including cross country skiing, ice skating, and regular skiing that we all know from TV.
With all that Baiersbronn has to offer you’ll realize that it’s a very magical place. Most if not all who come here remember it for a lifetime and want to return again and again.
