The tiny hamlet of Baiersbronn, out in the deep valleys of the Black Forest, is recognized as one of the gourmet capitals of the world. With two 3 star restaurants (twice as many as Chicago!) one 2 star and two 1 star restaurants, Baiersbronn boasts no less than 10 Michelin stars –the highest quota of Michelin stars per capita in the world!

Famous Schwarzwaldstube (3 stars), established by legendary Harald Wohlfahrt, has rightfully been listed in the book “1000 things to do before you die”. The next day we advise a move to Hotel Bareiss, where Claus Peter Lumpp, Schwarzwaldstube’s eternal rival, has been displaying his 3 Michelin Stars since 2007.

These incredible gourmet experiences are complemented by Jörg Sackmann’s 2 star Schlossberg Restaurant. No plans for lunch? There are 3 other starred restaurants less than 30 minutes away….

Be warned though, reservations are required as far as 6 months in advance, but Distinctly Deutschland might just be able to work its magic and book you a table anyway…
