“Wonderful dinner outside by the river”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We didn't stay here - we ate dinner here. We had walked around the small town of Schiltach, looking for a place to have dinner and came upon this charming restaurant right on the river. We had a lovely meal - I had the trout salad and can recommend it highly. They have a varied menu, the service was excellent and it was terrific to sit outside (across the road from the restaurant) by the river. We recommend this place highly.

We were doing a tour through the Black Forest and we had planned to spend a night in Schiltach. The drive to the village was wonderful. We went late in the afternoon and we could enjoy a breathtaking sunset. When we got into town we fell in love at first sight of its wooden houses and charm. Was a surprise to see that the hotel was in front of the street from the river, on the main street, and we had car space just in the front door. The reception was wonderful and the room excellent. Noteworthy that in the booking agreement says the check in must be before 8pm. We arrived at 8.30pm and we were greeted well anyway.
Rich and varied breakfast and very pleasant surroundings. The best thing? The owner affectionate hug before we left, inviting us to come back again.
Tip: Take a walk at night in the village. A blast!

I read about Gasthof Brücke here on Trip Advisor in the afternoon while I was driving thru the Bodensee area but figured it was already booked out. As I drove thru the Black Forest I couldn't find lodging as everything was booked out. Well after a few hours I ended up in Schiltach in front of the Gasthof Brücke...figured I'd give it a shot. Went inside, met Mike and he said a room was available due to a cancellation...score!! The place is fantastic with spacious rooms, very clean, a restaurant and with an outdoor Bier Garten right on the river. Michael is the proprietor and he right away makes you feel welcome as if you've known him for awhile already.
Breakfast is excellent with a wide assortment of fresh fruit, juice, etc. Michael even offered to make me eggs and bacon which I accepted happily. Michael is a chef by trade so everything in the restaurant looks, smells and tastes fantastic based on what I ate and observing the other guests.

Forget Freiburg...if you want a real Black Forest experience in a little dorfchen (small village) book a stay in Schiltach at the Gasthof Brücke...you'll be happy you did.

We stayed here for two nights in late July. The weather was truly dreadful, but Michael and his staff made us so welcome - carrying bags, makind scrambled eggs etc
Our room was the first floor apartment, which was clean and spacious- with lots (and lots) of cupboard space.
When I left my glasses behind at checkout Michael was again a gentleman and swiftly forwarded them onwards to me.
Schilltach is a very pretty town, if you ever choose to visit the area, call and stay at Zur Alten Brucke

Michael is fabulous - a hugely warm welcome even though we were quite late getting there - he carried some heavy suitcases for our group of 8 upstairs for us - extremely dog friendly and my dog was allowed to stay in the room and sit in the restaurant for breakfast - lovely comfy beds and clean rooms and only gave cleanliness a 4 because there was some mildew in my shower but am still feeling that is a bit harsh! Breakfast was awesome
Lovely village and beautiful scenery - would most definately stay here again

Hotel Zur Alten Brucke is a charming old hotel in lovely little Schiltach, right on the Schiltach River. Our rooms were spacious, comfortable and very clean. The owner was as friendly as you will ever find, and his meals were excellent. We hope to return to Schiltach and hopefully stay at the Alten Brucke again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a small apartment. It was great.

Zur Alten Brucke is beyond EXCELLENT! We were arriving late at night and our host and kitchen stayed up to welcome us! When we arrived we were exhausted and hungry after a long journey. The kitchen stayed up for us and cooked us the best meal I've ever had. Our room was clean and comfortable and they even let us stay in the room with the balcony both nights we were there even though we didn't book that room for both nights. They helped navigate us through the town. It's very beautiful. We ended up eating every meal there because he was such a Great cook. Breakfast was AMAZING as well! I would definitely go back again in the future!!! Book here, you won't regret it!!!!

Room Tip: Any! You can't go wrong!
