“Good Lunch break after the waterfall visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stopped at Pfaff's for lunch after visiting Triberg's waterfall. Our host and waitress was very friendly and helpful, she recommended the German specials from the menu. We all enjoyed our food and the cozy ambience.

If you're walking from the main train station to the hotel, get ready for a bit of a hike as it's all uphill (it seems like everywhere you go in Triberg is uphill from wherever you are). While it's a bit of a trek from the train station, the hotel is in a great place as it's close to a lot of restaurants, shops, the Black Forest Museum, and the falls. The area itself is dead quiet at night. The rooms definitely show their age but are clean (it's a really old building). Friendly staff. The food in the restaurant was great and the patio was cozy and offered a nice little view of the falls. Honestly cannot imagine staying in another hotel in Triberg; it's very well priced, looks great, and is in a fantastic location.

I am just home from a short holiday to Triberg and couldn't get on line quick enough to recommend Hotel Pfaff! I have read some other reviews of this spot and I really have no idea where the bad reviews are coming from! It is located directly in front of the waterfall with great views all around. The rooms were spotless and the bathroom had clean towels every morning and a surprisingly nice strong shower.
We arrived around half 8 in the evening so just dumped our bags in our room and came down for a big pint of beer and to relax after traveling all day. We have a very small amount of German between us but the waiter was very appreciative that we attempted to speak it. He turned on the outside heater for us and gave us plenty of notice when telling us what time food was served until if we were interested in eating.
We did get some dinner in the end and it was delicious (just like the lovely cold beers!)
The next morning the lady at reception showed us where the tourist office was and explained there was a side door we could come and go from which was nice to know so that we were not disturbing people in the restaurant coming in and out. The breakfast was very substantial with eggs, toast, fresh rolls, cheese, meats, cereals, yogurts, tea, coffee, juice and the rest!
All in all we had a blast staying here and i wouldn't hesitate going back tomorrow if I could!!

Room Tip: We were in room 8 and we had a lovely little balcony facing the walkway up to the waterfall

This quaint family run hotel is directly across from the entrance to Triberger Falls. We got two last minute rooms, one with an end balcony facing the falls, and one on the street side. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable, but what we loved most of all were the lounges outside the rooms decorated with all kinds of trinkets, like you were visiting a favourite aunt.
The breakfast, served in a cute dining room on the same floor was lovely and the breakfast room seemed private, making us wonder if there was a breakfast room on each floor. Service in the breakfast room was great.
When we first arrived, the woman greeting us was abrupt and not very happy, as has been mentioned in other reviews, but all our needs were satisfied and it did not detract from our enjoyment. We just loved being in this quaint Black Forest hotel which, while modernly comfortable, appears to have been at this crossroads for a very long time. We would definately stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: If you want to sit on a balcony its worth the little extra in fees.

Ancient wooden houses and hotels, "Live-in" cuckoo clocks, dark forests and the highest waterfall in Germany! Pull the other leg! No, no, they exist -- in the Hansel and Grethel village of TRIBERG in the Black Forest!
It's been there a long time and it's a mixture today of old timber-framed houses, hotels and restaurants clinging to the deep valley down through which the highest waterfall in Germany gushes and roars through the small town.
The Hotel Pfaff is such an old, but modernised hotel, facing the waterfall and dividing the modern roads to Freiburg (don't confuse this big city with Triberg) and Strasbourg just across the Rhine in France. All the rooms facing the waterfall have balconies where you can sit facing the torrent of water rushing down the dark tree-covered mountain towards you while drinking your local ice-cold beer, before curving off down through the main street and away into the lower slopes.
Triberg is a lovely gem out of Grimm's Hansel and Grethel as well as being the home of the cuckoo clock (honestly) where clock shops and massive clock factories invite you in to buy. Genuine Black Forest clocks sit beside ultra-modern electronic masterpieces which one can buy and have shipped to anywhere in the world. There is even a cuckoo clock HOUSE that people actually live in and suffer the never-ending call of the bird. "Who is this guy kidding us" I hear you say, so just go, just go and enjoy the holiday of your life, especially if you have the kids with you.
The family Pfaff have owned the Hotel Pfaff for generations and Herr Pfaff has always been both owner and Chef, producing the most memorable dishes I have ever tasted, especially the nearby river fish, magnificent with a bottle of chilled dry local white wine. Frau Pfaff is the pastry-cook and her Appelstrudel is a real sin!
The hotel is beautifully maintained, the cuisine is local and impeccable, the price is very reasonable and well known by the discerning locals who live in the area.
You don't often come across holidays like this -- it's worth a go believe me!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the waterfall.

We've stayed here a couple of times now on our way through the Black Forest. 40 euro each for a side room. No balcony with the room, but there are a couple of large shared balconies for sitting out if you don't want to be in the bar/restaurant terrace. For 44 euro each you get a room with a private balcony facing the waterfall park. The balcony is small but with a table and chairs and a nice view. it also gets the evening sun. You also get free entry to the waterfall (wasserfall) park opposite. Steep walks up to a series of waterfalls, with play areas. Very peaceful if you go early or late. You can buy squirrel food, but good luck trying to find one.
Rooms were really nice. Food in restaurant good, and we've always found the service to be good. Limited off-road parking. You can sit inside the restaurant, but if the weather is good, there's a lovely terrace that gets the evening sun. And of course it's compulsory to have the Black Forest Gateau (whilst you're in the Black Forest)!
As you're in the middle of the birthplace of the cuckoo clock, check out the nearby shops. The House of 1000 Clocks (a couple of doors away) will even post clocks to you. Amazing selection. You'll also find traditional costumes and foody gifts within a couple of minutes' walk.
Good range of Continental breakfast with fresh fruit, tasty eggs, toast etc.

We landed here after our reservation at another hotel fell through. Despite arriving after 10 pm they quickly found us a room and even left the kitchen open to make us a light supper. The room was large and clean with a small en suite shower room. They have a great buffet breakfast severed in a beautifully decorated breakfast room. Only negative thing I can say is there is no parking (street parking is free in town at 7pm) and the light in the bathroom is motion activated (which causes the light to shut off mid-shower).

Would be glad to stay here again!
