The dining room is very twee and pretty. One waiter (the owner) does it all but he is very good. Big portions, good food. Anything pork and you get two pork loins plus sides which always includes a separate side salad. Closed on Mondays. Gets busy but worth waiting at the bar for. Mostly German diners, few French, English rare.

Gasthaus zum Kreuz, just outside of the center of Freiburg, is one of those hidden gems that probably should be left off Tripadviser. With 19 clean and cosy rooms (3-star comfort level) and a sunny breakfast room, it is the ideal place to relax in the fresh Black Forest air. The inn is on the edge of the Black Forest... More

We stayed here for two nights on a road trip. Nice quiet location,country walks accessible from the hotel and just a short drive to the city centre. Room was clean and comfortable but the restaurant across the road is the outstanding feature. Looks unspectacular on the outside but lovely old world charm indoors. Delicious food and nice service. Overall, the... More

To avoid parking issues in Freiburg, we opted to stay in a little village outside the city. It worked out well. The B&B is a newer building, across the street from a long-established and well-patronized restaurant. Parking available right in front of the B&B, although at dinnertime, there is some competition for parking with the restaurant patrons. The room had... More

Although we were disappointed in the city itself (graffiti everywhere), this hotel was a welcome respite from traveling. Fruit and cake were available in the lobby. Little English was spoken, but the hostesses were still very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was quite good; the outdoor setting was lovely.

We found zum Kreuz very easily, it was signposted on lamp posts.We were welcomed into the hotel and had a very comfortable and spotlessly clean bedroom with shower room. We opted to eat in the restuarant which was very busy but our waitress proved to be a treasure by helping us with menu choices.It was such a delicious meal we... More

We drove right past as the signage might be better, but came back to find an ample car park and a flower-bedecked hotel frontage that immediately charmed us. We spent a couple of nights here en route south, and wished we had longer. The glorious weather helped, of course, but the commodious accommodation was comfortable, including the cool shady verandah... More

We only stayed here one night and opted to stay outside Freiburg and were delighted to find this hotel. The hotel is in a lovely quiet village a short distance outside Freiburg and very close to the Black Forest. After we checked in we walked a mile up the road from the hotel in delightful, beautiful countryside - working up... More

We have just spent a week here, visiting our daughter who is studying at Freiburg university. It is in a lovely quiet village very close to the Black Forest. The rooms are quite spacious (we had an end one) and the showers are great, with plenty of hot water. We don't speak German, although our two sons speak it a... More

My wife and I spent our Christmas Holiday at Hotel zum Kreuz. It was a nice large corner room with a balcony. Although the bed was a bit to hard for us and the pillows were thin and flat. We enjoyed our stay there. It was quite and the staff were very courteous and friendly. The Hotel Restaurant is renowned... More
