Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2011

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying with hosts Micheal and Lisa at their Gasthaus in October 2010. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, due largely in part to the kindness of our hosts, our room, and the high quality of the meals we were served. The Black Forest is a lovely area and is made even more enjoyable by establishments like Zur Alten Brucke in Schiltach. Vielen dank Micheal and Lisa.

Great value accommodation in a traditional Black Forest style character building, centrally located and expertly run by a hard working friendly couple. Excellent buffet breakfast and flexible half board arrangements. Complimentary rail and bus pass vouchers offered to us which were great. The hosts had good knowledge of the area, offered well equiped rooms including flat screen TV's, tea making facilities upon request, abundance of hot water and superb showers, clock/radio and telephone, Wi-Fi and incredible views of the snow covered hills and pretty houses. Safe drinking water and wonderful local beer added to the experience. A really warm welcome and lovely atmosphere - where the great sense of humour made our Christmas special. Thank you so much.

My husband and I stayed at the Zur Alten Brucke recently. The owners could not have been more welcoming and helpfull -- even helping us carry our luggage up to our room.
The room and bathroom were both sparkling clean and the location was just beautiful. Looking out our window, up toward the mountain, along the river, in morning with the mist, it was magical. My husband and I had a drink out on the lovely river terrace that the hotel has. Even a bit chilly, it was so relaxing to sit and listen to the water and watch the ducks. We enjoyed two delicious meals cooked by Mr. Mogler. He is a chef and even if you don't stay at the hotel, I recommend you dine there. Our meals were some of the best that we had during our trip. We loved meeting their dog, Max. Parking was not a problem, there was street parking and the Moglers were kind enough to give us a parking pass. Oh, and they had free WiFi! As soon as we got there, Mrs. Mogler gave us the password so that we could connect. We were delighted -- we had just come from a Hilton that charged outrages per minute rates for Internet access. Thank you Moglers for a great stay in your lovely hotel.

Thanks so much for your review. We completely enjoyed having both of you here and remember clearly our conversation about free wi-fi. We agree, in this day and age it should be standard everywhere. Michael says thanks too for the compliments about his food. He always gives his best and loves hearing from people who appreciate his great cooking. We hope the rest of your holiday is fantastic!

The hotel is in a fantastic location in a very pretty village. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was very good. We ate at the restaurant both nights and found it to serve good hearty meals. The hotel seems to be a little "tired" however, and there was mess in the public areas downstairs. Little things I know, but they do leave an impression.

Having been to Germany many times (we love it!) my husband, sister, best friend and I wanted to begin our 3 week Europe independent tour by staying in a small village in the Black Forest. We are all seniors and found the perfect friendly, homey place in the Zur Alten Brucke B&B. Lisa & Michael are perfect host/owners and made us feel like family right from the beginning as we pulled up in our overloaded car and Michael so quickly carried all our luggage up to our lovely, riverside rooms. Schiltach is a beautiful, picturesque town and the hotel, originally built in the late 1890’s, is in a ideal spot...sitting along side the scenic Schiltach River..only steps to the center of town and the local train. Michael is a wonderful chef...breakfasts and dinners were delightful and we even got a little cooking lesson, from Michael, in his immaculate kitchen. Lisa helped us plan our Black Forest adventures..with maps, directions, ideas, and free train tickets for local sites and she also directed us to our adventure at a luxurious Spa in Baden-Baden. If you're ever in Germany and want a break from the big, touristy sites...you must visit Schiltach and the surrounding villages and towns and stay with Lisa & Michael. We hope to go back some day and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for such a wonderful stay! Words can’t express what an all around great experience we had at Zur Alten Brucke. All our meals were delicious and the hotel is lovely, clean and inviting -- right by a river, in the prettiest town. We loved being able to walk out the front door and wander around Schiltach, and the town is also well situated to explore the region. As perfect as the setting is, Lisa and Michael are the real gems. They were incredibly gracious and warm. They made us feel at home right away, and bent over backwards to make our stay extremely enjoyable. We travel often but have never come across so much genuine hospitality. We’re so happy to have stayed here – I want to go back and share it with others!

Words cannot express how this trip was for us. Michael and Lisa (owners) were just amazing. The rooms, the place, the food, the locals "oh my god!" can not convey what they all mean to us now. What they didn't know about the area, they found out for you. Travel around via bus & train was just outstanding. Schiltach itself very quaint, and very lovely to hike around. We travelled with 6 adults, 1 teenager, and 3 children 8 & under, and we never had a hitch. If you like meeting new people, this is the place for you!

Oh yeah...the beer and food are excellent too!! Prost!
