A holiday to enjoy -
at any time of the year
The village of Hinterzarten is located at 850 m to 1,200 m in the High Black Forest and is a state recognised mountain and health resort and also a well known winter sports centre. Hinterzarten is at almost the highest point of the Black Forest – with Mt. Feldberg at 1,493 m. Alpersbach forms Hinterzarten’s western part and is an ideal starting point for beautiful hikes with breathtaking views.
Our countryside is magnificent – at any time of year. We are just the right place for guests seeking peace and quiet. To enjoy the clear high mountain air for a few days in beautiful unspoilt nature is enough to recharge anyone’s batteries. We do everything we can to help you make the most of your stay in every possible way.
A summer's dream -
for your whole being
Sweet smelling meadows, shady forests, pleasant temperatures: summer at the Engel has its own, special appeal. Hikers and mountain bikers can get to know the Black Forest in their own way on its many trails.
However, if you just want to laze in the sun, enjoy the countryside from the balcony of your own room, have a piece of cake and coffee on the terrace with its panoramic view, or find a quiet little spot in the idyllic surroundings.
For golf lovers, the “Golfplatz Hochschwarzwald” 9-hole course is only a few minutes away.
A winter's tale -
for young and old
You can be sure there will always be snow in our region. But not only skiers find what they want here in winter. The range of winter activities on offer is very varied: ski-runs or cross-country skiing, skiing tours, snowshoeing, even walks through the white countryside. There is something to suit every taste.
A cleared hiking trail passes right behind the inn. And anyone who feels like it can take advantage of the floodlight skiing facility in Hinterzarten, 5 km away.
Outings in the area -
culture and nature
All year, Hinterzarten is an attractive holiday destination for everybody. Numerous museums on the most diverse themes and especially, of course, on life in the Black Forest, themed hikes, theatrical performances … mean you will never get bored.
A ride on Hasenhorn mountain roller coaster in Todtnau is beautiful, fast and spectacular. Uphill by modern double chair lift, then straight downhill for the sheer thrill of it, in summer and winter. You will love the sharp bends, three great loops and merrily rolling railed tracks of Germany’s longest (2.9 km) roller coaster in operation throughout the year.
Various thermal swimming pool complexes in the area offer bathing in hot spring water. For families with children, “Badeparadies Schwarzwald” (Black Forest bathing paradise) in the town of Titisee makes a marvellous change with its high-tech water slides and genuine palm trees.
Crossroads of three countries - Germany, France and Switzerland
all just a stone’s throw away
You could hardly be more centrally located than here in the Black Forest, only 25 km from Freiburg im Breisgau and the sun-drenched Markgräflerland, and the point where the three countries of Germany, France and Switzerland meet. This of itself means a large number of attractive possibilities for outings.
Basel in Switzerland, the renowned Rhine falls in Schaffhausen, Colmar with its “Little Venice”, Mulhouse or Strasburg in Alsace … and, virtually right on your doorstep Lake Titisee for bathing, boat trips, or just for strolling along its promenade. We have loads of useful information to assist you in planning your individual leisure activities.
