Steep road and steps for elderly people. Bus service (201) runs every 2 hours Mon-Fri from along the road. Last bus at 17:55 from town. Circular route. Ideal as you pay Tax for each Adult at 3 Euro a night but you get a Gastekarte. Using this bus and others is free with the Gastekarte, as is the S6 Tram train to Pforzheim. Take the 723 Bus to Kaltenbronn for the Hohlohturm. Bus stop is near to Getränke Tubach (Beer supermarket) on Kernerstraße. The Sommerbergbahn for the Treetop walk, both for fantastic views over the Black Forest. Palais Thermal for a spa but remember you are expected to go naked, but are allowed in the lowest level with swimwear on. Use your Gastekarte for discounts. Not a lot of choice in the town for restaurants but these are worth a look: Alte Linde, Gasthof Wildbader Hof. Both serve quality German food and drinks with bier Vom Fass (draught beer). A couple of Pizza Kebap fast food places but we didn't use them. Haag Bakery for snacks, Lidl and Edeka Supermarkets by Bahnhof (Main Train Station). De Simone Ice cream parlor also serves beer and other drinks next to Kurpark train stop. Dinkelacker is a new Bar/Restaurant in the Kurpark, we had a few drinks but no food. Closest mini market and Bakery is Windhof along road from Getränke Tubach. House has 1 downstairs double bedroom en suite and 3 on first floor non on suite, also 2 single beds in attic room. Basement has a shower, WC, sauna, washing machine and Table Football for the big kids!. Flight simulator shown in photos we were told was not for guest use. It should be made clear in the description as my teenage son was very disappointed. Hot tub comes with a 20 Euro surcharge for cleaning. BBQ again comes with a charge for Charcoal and firelighters used.. Beer in bottles is available as well as other drinks and goodies that you pay for separately price list is given to you on arrival. Lots of technology in the house, if you know how to use it. Wifi we found only really worked in the main lounge room and not outside if the windows are shut. Caretaker Marcel is a credit to the owner, speaks perfect English and nothing was too much for him. His Mother even ran us to Lidl on arrival in her car for our shopping. We chose not to use a car instead travelling from the UK by Train. Other than the walk from Kurpark station for my mother (82) we found we didn't need a car. Recommended.

He answered all my questions/messages very promptly. The apartment was spotless. The kitchen had all the utensils needed to cook including a dishwasher and a washing machine (in the bathroom). Excellent Internet too.

And with a train station around 15 minutes walk from the apartment it was very easy to explore further afield without having to drive anywhere. The apartment is incredibly spacious; two large bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and a dining living room area that was huge; very comfortable for watching films in the evening on the large flat screen TV. We immediately felt very welcome and very much at home in this apartment. Our hosts were very kind and helpful and made sure that we enjoyed our stay; you couldn’t wish to meet more friendly people. We’d recommend staying here to anyone who’s interested in visiting the Black Forest. We felt very fortunate to be given Schwartzwald Plus cards, that in addition to providing free entry to many local attractions (including the local swimming/spa centre) , gave us free use of trains and buses. Amazing; free transport! Thank you Family Muller for allowing us to stay in your fantastic home!
