So, it’s not a shock that Gundelfingen has a castle. Well, it did at one time. Burg Zähringen now lies in ruins and is one of the town’s most popular tourist attractions.
Since Gundelfingen is also in the Black Forest, the best place for you to be is outside.
The town has many old framework style buildings while you’re out wandering around town. Wood carving and cuckoo clocks are quite famous for and lovingly made in the Black Forest area, so check out any and all specialty shops.
There are also lots of walking and cycling paths that will take you through heavily forested areas or wide open tree lined lanes. Choice is yours, but either way you can’t go wrong.
Keep a look out for the Black Forest cattle, foxes, eagles, owls, and a giant earthworm that’s only indigenous to this area.
Being indoors is only a good idea if you’re spending the day at the Obermattenbad, an indoor pool with its own little cafe.
With so much to do around Gundelfingen a day visit isn’t long enough; good thing there are a few inns around town. Gasthaus Grüner Baum is a charming place with flowerbox lined porches and its restaurant serves delicious regional specialties.
Black forest regional specialties include Black Forest cake and ham, but try another regional dish known as Flammkuchen; a dough dish made with ham, cheese, and cream.
And while you’re still outside, the town also throws one great Fastnacht festival right before Lent.
Gundelfingen’s Hotel Laube will surprise you. It’s a quaint timber framed building on the outside and you’ll find ultra modern sleek and chic rooms on the inside. Laube’s restaurant also serves scrumptious regional dishes; so there’s no way anyone will go hungry in this town!
