We spent two nights at Die Reichsstadt last week. It was a little tricky to find, with its unassuming entrance facing a narrow cobblestone street, but when we found it we were warmly welcomed, given the grand tour, shown our room, and instructed to return downstairs when settled in for a welcome drink. There were mints on our pillows and... More

Gengenbach is a really lovely place - a perfect location to explore the black forest, but a good enough size to spend time in itself. Staying here gives you the KONUS tourist card, so you can travel for free in the black forest region. We managed to get to Karlsruhe and Triberg for absolutely 0 Euro :) We stayed in... More

We just stayed one night in Gengenbach, but it was a great experience. The hotel is conveniently located close to a number of shops and restaurants. The room was very clean with a large bathroom. The view from the rooftop lounge is beautiful. We had a wonderful breakfast and dinner at the hotel. Wish we could have stayed longer....

We stayed at this hotel to visit Gengenbach's famous Christmas Market/Advent performance, and it was an ideal base - literally only steps from the market area. We liked everything else about the hotel as well. The front desk staff spoke very good English and was very helpful. Our room was large enough and clean, and the breakfast and the breakfast... More

We turned up here late and last minute after a driving trip through the Black Forest. The town itself is pretty quiet but the hotel was busy and friendly - seemed family run. As the lower prices rooms were all full they gave us an upgrade for the same price. The buffet breakfast is huuuuge and includes Sekt :-) Lovely... More

Gengenbach is a lovely town and this hotel is the perfect place to stay there, as it is as attractive as the town. We were welcomed on arrival and helped to park the car and shown over the hotel and our room by a very helpful staff member. Our room was clean, comfortable and furnished in a modern style. We...

This hotel was excellent, so glad we came across it! The decor is lovely, the evening meal and breakfast were unforgettable. It was our ten year wedding anniversary and they staff reserved a lovely table for us at the hotel restaurant. We ordered the set menu of 45 euro per person for 5 courses with a wine specially recommended to... More

What a fantastic hotel in a lovely little town! We stayed in a suite (room 211) which featured a balcony with stunning views of the hills in the distance. The room was spacious, clean, and very tastefully decorated. The service is exceptional and all of the staff were very friendly and were happy to speak English as we cannot speak... More

My husband and I recently stayed in Gengenbach on our first trip to Europe. We booked two nights at Die Reichsstadt, having read all the reviews on Trip Advisor, and were not disappointed. We traveled by train, and the hotel was within easy walking distance of the train station. The hotel is a first-rate accommodation, professionally run and top quality.... More
