Why not both!

At about 1,000 meters above sea level, our summers are mild and in winter the landscape is partly covered in deep snow.

Nature lovers and active people will definitely love Schönwald. The fragrance of pine, wildflower meadows, old crafts, idyllic forest paths, gurgling streams with crystal clear water, beautiful hike tours, just about anything your heart desires.

In the afternoon you can have a small walk around our terrace and end the day with a cup of coffee and cake.

Turn the Ochsen into your base camp

A winter hike through crunching snow followed by a traditional Black Forest Vesper next to the warm tiled stove – what could you ask for more? What feels good in summer also brings fun and relaxation in winter. Hikes may not be quite as long, but you will still find plenty of well-kept tracks all around Schönwald.
