I discovered this great Gasthaus and restaurant while staying at a farm in the Oberprech valley. We spent an afternoon just relaxing and wandering around the little village nearby. We walked down a narrow country lane and found a wonderful restaurant - the Landgasthaus Rössle where we had an excellent meal of Goulash soup, salad, Schnitzel, Cordon Bleu mit Bier for very reasonable prices.

Nice little Cafe and Pension located in the Oberprech valley. Cafe stocked with excellent assortment of Kuchen, Torte and Eis selections. I enjoyed a nice strawberry concoction with a Likör sauce and then a large banana split covered with some kind fo liqueur that made me glad I wasn't driving that day. Hat geschmeckt gute!...

(Ben) ...My favorite restaurant in the Schutter valley is the wonderful little Gasthaus-Pension Schutterblick, owned and operated by the very friendly family Schwendemann. I have since visited the Schutterblick on several occasions but I will never forget my first visit -

...As with so many European restaurants there were plenty of outside or terrace tables and we seated ourselves where we could enjoy the cool wind and sunshine. Our attentive waitress, Marion (Schwendemann), quickly recognized us as wayward Americans and she spoke excellent English. We were not our usual hungry selves so she recommended Seniorteller selections and the food turned out to be the perfect portions and perfectly delicious. The salads at the Shutterblick were the best of our vacation and you could easily make a meal of just the salads. My wife Dee Dee had the Schweineschnitzel mit Bratkartoffeln und Salat, I had a delicious Rahmschnitzel mit hausgemachten Spätzle und Salat and our daughter Amy tried the scrambled eggs and bread (Rühreier mit Schinken, Brot, und Salat). Alles schmeckt sehr gut! We spent the rest of the day digesting that meal and driving the back roads of the Schwarzwald...

The next day we tried the Gulasch mit Butternudeln und Salat, a Halbhähnchen mit Pommes und Salat, and a Schweine Schnitzel mit Pommes und Kopfsalat, the Bier was a very smooth Wagner.

(
Larry) ...During my trip in September 2002 I also stopped at the Shutterblick for dinner. Just off the main road with a nice outdoor patio. Very nice ambiance. Lots of old wood charm, beamed ceilings, shaped chairs. I was starving after a long day on the road. In a few minutes out came the grub and I was staring at the largest Schweinschnitzel I had ever seen. There was a large salad, and a huge side order of Bratkartoffel. Without a doubt this was the best meal of the trip. I even had to push away and leave some behind, unheard of for me. I also had a nice visit with Marion...

This little Gasthaus and restaurant is well worth visiting if you are anywhere near the Shuttertal when you visit the Schwarzwald. Just tell Marion that Ben and Larry sent you...

Ben) ...For a final dinner in the Black Forest we backtracked to Haslach to try another recommendation from a Stammtisch member. Erskine and Peg (HHAV) have personal ties and a special relationship with the family that own the Hotel-Gasthaus zur Blume. This turned out to be a classy restaurant and hotel that Larry and I would have probably never discovered on our own as it is off the beaten path that we normally travel thru Haslach. The folks that Erskine know so well were not around while we were there but we did have a nice conversation with one of the ladies who knew him. Thanks for the suggestion Erskine! We had a good time and a very nice meal.

(Tennessee Bill) ...As the sun began to retreat behind the mountains, we rejoined the main-road traffic and headed into Haslach, a small town northeast of Freiburg. Our hotel is the Zur Blume, a large, mustard colored hotel that Erskine has visited many times. He knows the proprietor and the ladies who manage the place. The chief hostess speaks good English, so one of our difficulties is relieved. Supper tonight was in the Zur Blume. It is a beautiful, typically German dining room decorated in rich, golden wood from this area. It was well lit, and felt very comfortable, with linen tablecloths, wine glasses, and heavy beer mugs. We met Frau Moser, the owner, whom Erskine knows from many trips here. We ate Jägerschnitzel and champignons (mushrooms), in a sauce of Rahmschnitzel, and noodles, and served by a professional, elegant waiter. The meal was outstanding and cost Euro 10.50 plus a half liter of beer.

They have a nice restaurant with reasonably priced meals and I noticed a lot of the locals eating dinner there each night. You can also eat meals outside (great on a cool fall day!) at a nice patio nestled among lots of shade trees, which offers a great view of the Schwarzwald Bahn as the trains come through the valley. Clean... comfortable... and the price is right. My last meal here was a nice sized Putenschnitzel with Pommes, accompanied by a self made salad from the nearby buffet. The final tab was only E12.

When we reviewed the menu for the first time, it looked a bit expensive. However, the food was extremely good and presented well, so we ended up eating there several times. We had the best meal ever on our last night -- Whitney had breaded, baked trout with shrimp and I had sliced veal in a cream sauce that was superb!

Eighteen of our Stammtischers and friends had dinner here a few years ago. The weather was excellent for September in the Schwarzwald and the gathering of friends was extra special. Some of us had met before but there were also some new faces that evening. A designated area was set aside for our group and the Ochsen staff were very nice and accommodating. Our waitresses were very friendly and pleasant and I'm sure most of our folks enjoyed their meals as much as I did. I know my dinner was excellent as was Larry's Kalbschnitzel mit Spätzle. The Landgasthof Ochsen is about ten minutes from Urach.

...Arrived in Gengenbach and found the hotel - sort of on the outskirts of town and up the hill a bit overlooking the valley -- every bit as good as we hoped. When we checked in, we decided to eat at the very elegant hotel restaurant. The woman who checked us in took it upon herself to show us two tables for two. We chose one with the best view. That night we went down (the table had more utensils than I knew what to do with, and I've been around a bit). We had a spatula thing Susan said was for serving fish. We found a nice "reserved" sign on our table and realized it was ours for the duration. The meal was exquisite, once we (read I, actually) figured out what we ordered. Susan had a pork tenderloins meal that was large in spite of ordering (she thought) the "small" portion. I had a "Kalbsteak" which we figured out was veal steak, fixed according to "Hotel Benz Style." Well, it was special -- I was staring down at a half of a lobster head (empty) standing on end with its antenna sticking up, a couple of claw meat portions on the plate, a "lump" of stuff which I figured covered the veal (it did) that had asparagus, mushrooms and sauce, and -- ready for this -- shavings of smoked salmon! It was great, if not unusual -- I had figured out the veal, mushrooms, and the asparagus, but completely went by the lobster and smoked salmon. Needless to say, the meal was great -- and of course it had a pate course as well as a salad course, etc. Had some local beer (you knew that would be), Ketterer, something I'd have a lot of later -- turned out to be quite good (is there "bad" German beer?).

...The Holzwurm also has a restaurant, and Eugen is a great cook. I think my favorite of all (because it was so unique to me) was his "Feldsalat" yum!! Sehr gut! When I asked him what a Feldsalat was, he tried to explain "you know, what do you call it in America? The green lettuce that grows between the corn. Is it called corn salad?" Well, Ive never heard of corn salad, but after traveling around the area for the two days we were there, I noticed that many corn fields had a type of green lettuce growing between the rows of corn. Whatever this green is, the flavor is fantastic. And, what a great idea to keep down the weeds between the corn! The type of beer for this region was called "Hatz" and it had a very mellow taste.

...Titisee was packed, so we drove to Neustadt. We found a lovely hotel, the Gasthof zum Bären. We each had a single room - 39 Euro each. We had a wonderful dinner here then walked a bit. There was a band and a guy giving a speech in the town square. So we had cheap entertainment while some of us called home. We sleep in a bit, and have breakfast at 9:00. The buffet is beautiful. The zum Bären in Neustadt is one of our favorite stops on this trip. And we found it just by driving by! We really have had a lot of good luck so far.
