This small hotel is family run and located just below the ruins of Rabeneck castle, where the youth hostel has been built in. The hotel is very reasonably priced, my single room was basic but clean. There is a nice restaurant and on warm summer days you will enjoy the beer garden.
The location of Gasthaus Rabeneck is in Dillweissenstein, 5km away from the city of Pforzheim, the center of the jewelry industry in Germany. It is very quite and allows a good rest no matter if you are on business or at the beginning of a hiking through the Black Forest - the 3 long distance trails start here.
