fantastic week in August 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week staying in the Rinkenturm apartment in August 2015. The property really is in a lovely location in Tonbach with lovely walks direct from the house which was very clean and well maintained. A great garden as well for the kids with table tennis and a swing. We certainly weren't short of things to do and the Schwarzwald plus card (in typical German style!) is comprehensive for public transport and tons of local attractions. Some great restaurants nearby with the Sattelei Wanderhutte and the Café Eickler the best and easily walkable. Mini golf at Tonbach closeby was really nice. We found everyone to be amazingly friendly and hospitable. We used the Schwarzwald plus card for the toboggan, downhill cart and tree top climbing at Mehliskopf just off the B500 High Road - which was just how you imagine the Black Forest and this part of Germany to be. Loads of outdoor pools to take the kids to each day (again with the card!) and a dip in the Sankenbach lake. Roland and Birgit were helpful and kind from the initial email and telephone call - to welcoming us when we arrived a bit late in the day! Overall a brilliant week and an area of Germany that we would love to visit again.

Lovely apartment and location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks with our two teenage daughters and had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. The apartment was lovely - very well equipped and very clean. Our balcony had a beautiful view over the mountains to the left. Birgit was very helpful and always on hand to answer any queries we had. The weather was very hot so we were very glad of the public swimming pool in Baiersbronn, which us just a short drive away. There are plenty of nice walks in the area, some of which can be done from the apartment itself. We also did some day trips to Heidelberg and Freiburg and had a thrilling time trying out paragliding! Baiersbronn has some very good restaurants but we also cooked dinner in the apartment a few times. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are lots of supermarkets nearby. The location is ideal for anyone who wants a nice relaxing holiday and is happy to drive to restaurants. What would have made it perfect was some fans to cool us down a bit and some shade on the balcony. However I think we got hotter weather than usual so this may not be a problem very often. Thanks very much Birgit for a lovely holiday!!

Great exploring the Black Forest and Alsace

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located high on a hill overlooking the Tonbach valley. The views are stunning and the location perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway. The pictures in the rental listing do not really do the location justice. It is spectacular.

During our stay in late June we found the whole area to be quiet and uncrowded with even the most popular Black Forest destinations almost deserted.

Typically we would drive to the small Edeka supermarket (3 minutes away) and stock up on some simple food and groceries which we would then prepare in the spotlessly clean and nicely equipped kitchen. On other days we would eat at outdoor cafes and restaurants in one of the nearby villages.

Baiersbronn is not a bustling tourist hub, but it is a very good base from which to explore and enjoy the many surrounding towns and villages. Be ready for some adventurous mountain driving though. Getting almost anywhere will require you to negotiate the Swatzwaldhauptstrasse (Black Forest high road).

The Rinkenturm apartment is almost beyond reproach. Spotlessly clean, quite well equipped and with beds for 4, we found it extremely comfortable. We also thought that it offered remarkable value for money.

We loved the clean, modern and functional apartment, (this is Germany, of course everything works and works perfectly) the spectacular country location and the wonderful walks that started right at the front door and led all over this hiker's heaven.

The only very slight negatives were the sluggish Internet speeds (but to some extent that is the price you pay for being out in the country) and the orientation of the building which meant that those wonderful views could not be fully appreciated without standing on tip-toe, or walking down to the road.

Overall a very solid five stars.

Visitors from outside of Germany would do well to research the German garbage/trash regulations. The owners provided clear instructions, but still it is a complex business. At one time we joked that it would be easier to mail our trash home :) This is true of anywhere in Germany of course, it is not a criticism of this lovely apartment.

Brilliant summer holiday in the Black forest

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this apartment in the Black forest. The views and surrounding area were amazing with well signed hikes and trails at the end of the drive. On arrival we found the apartment very clean and the owners were very welcoming

As a family of 5 we spent lots of time at the great open-air swimming pools nearby (all free with the Schwarzwaldkarte provided by the owners). Triberg waterfall was a big hot, as was glassblowing (we made our own vases), the bear and wolf park, swimming in lakes and mini-golf - there's loads for families to do in the area.

We hadn't been to Germany before but would definitely like to return.

Wonderful Black Forest Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas week in this lovely, cozy apartment in a beautiful setting. We arrived to find the unit perfectly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is completely appointed with everything you will need and the beds are very nice. Beautiful hikes are in any direction right out the front door. They owners are kind and helpful hosts. We visited Triburg, Calw, and nearby Freudenstadt. Highly recommended!

Family holiday in Rinkenturm apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable family (of 5) holiday spent in the Rinkenturm apartment which is located in a quiet area of the valley with great views.

We found the welcome and quality of the apartment to be excellent. Great care is clearly taken in maintaining the apartments to this standard and personal help is at hand if needed from the owners.

Excellent location for exploring the northern Black Forest. The nearest (well signposted) forest and river walks are a few minutes from the apartment and it's only a short walk to the nearest park for the children. Very good swimming pools in Freudenstadt (indoor) and at Mittertal (outdoor) which are close by.
