The 4-star Hotel Silberkönig in the Black Forest

The key to “legendary” dreams

Schwarzwald-Hotel Silberkönig lies 15 km to the north of the Breisgau metropolis of Freiburg in the centre of the Elztal and Simonswäldertal valleys. Not far from Basel, Colmar and Strasburg in the border triangle. Those in the know regard the region as the “Tuscany” of Germany. An area richly blessed by culture and nature. Varied, with the mild transitions of the foothills, from the Rhine plain up to the Upper Black Forest. The moderate climate is good for body and spirit.

Goethe was moved to effusive admiration and expressed his enthusiasm with the following, when he visited the grave of his sister in Emmendingen in 1775:

“A happy land, where the wine matures before the mountainous setting of the Black Forest.”

The fairy tale ...

In our region, you will find “mountains” of possibilities for ensuring your holiday is a varied one.
