This "castle-hotel" stands majestically on its own extensive grounds 10 km (6 mi) from Baden-Baden, with spectacular views over the heights of the Black Forest. Walking trails start virtually at the hotel door. Its restaurant, the Imperial ($$$$; closed Monday and Tuesday and January–mid-February), features French fare with international touches, such as lamb in feta cheese crust with ratatouille and gnocchi. In the Schlossrestaurant ($$$), overlooking the Rhine Valley,
regional and international dishes are offered. Rooms are cheaper during the week.
