(Ben) ...Roomy zimmer in a little Pension located about ten minutes from the Altstadt "Städtle" and a train stop. Frau Müller is a perfect hostess, eager to please and runs a very clean Haus. She speaks a bit of English and is very engaging. I enjoyed an immaculate double room with shower, toilet, love seat and cable TV for a very reasonable price.


Excellent breakfast (soft boiled egg, fresh rolls, more wurst and cheese than I could eat, homemade jams and jellies) served in a large Frühstückzimmer. Hair dryer and small refrigerator available for guests.


Schiltach, in the heart of the Black Forest (approx 20 km SW of Freudenstadt), is situated at a point where the Kinzig and Schiltach valleys join. The Marktplatz has beautiful half-timbered buildings on all sides (unchanged since 1791). A road was developed thru the Kinzigtal as far back as Roman times, tying the Strasbourg area in the west to that of Rottweil on the eastern fringes of the Schwarzwald. With it's many Fachwerk (half-timbered) houses it is one of the most picturesque villages along the Deutsche Fachwerkstraße. There are no less than four museums around town highlighting such crafts that supported this region in earlier times, rafting, forestry and tanning.



The Stadtbrunnen (town fountain) dates from the 15th century (restored in 1750).


The Rathaus (built in 1590) contains murals and depictions of past floods and destructive fires along with a well equipped Tourist Information Office.
