We stayed here for two nights last weekend. It was fab! Realky nice rooms, nice staff, great breakfast. The owners very kindly left some beautiful wine in our room, as we had been joking about only water in the minibar. Really really nice people.

We spent a morning at Kloster Hirsau, and it was very special. There weren't many tourists around, so we could walk around in peace and take it all in. These ruins are a complex of buildings and chapels, now overgrown and set in a lovely...More

Kloster Hirsau is just down the road from Calw (another must see) and didn't disappoint. Although in ruins, nearly all the building structures are intact and span a period of several hundred years. Entrance is free and you can wander and explore at your leisure....More

Only 2 km away from Calw. Worth of a visit when you visit north Black Forest. No ticket is required to visit the ruins (only a small fee for the nearby museum). A must go is the Cafe at Kloster. The interior gives a flavor...More
