Review of Hotel Zum Ochsen in Schönwald – Schwarzwald

Think rolling hills and rugged valleys, Hotel zum Ochsen is a fantastic four star hotel that is located in the heart of the mystical Black Forest in a picturesque village called Schönwald.

Despite staying only one night, I found this great hotel to provide absolutely everything I could of needed. On arrival, check in was both prompt and fast and personally greeted with a smile and shown to my room. Upon opening my door I was completely surprised by the brightness and modern comfort feel the room had. It was both compact but spacious, clean and above all cosy and warm! (unlike the freezing temperature outside!)

I loved the walk in shower in the bathroom, although I did find that the glass divider wasn’t long enough to prevent water spilling out onto the floor. But it wasn’t a major problem.

Our evening meal was spectacular. The table design alone was beautiful and the classic specialty dishes from the area on the menu were a true delight.

Delicious meal at Hotel Sum Ochsen. This was the vegetarian option..cabbage with polenta and winter vegetables.

My room was located just above reception and although the hotel seemed to be pretty busy I didn’t hear anything or anyone and I slept like a baby!

Since I was only staying one night I wasn’t able to check out the hotel’s wellness center complete with its own swimming pool, steam room, sauna and solarium. (I had a quick peak and it looks super relaxing!) The hotel also has a great wifi connection and they serve a hearty breakfast in the mornings.

I arrived in darkness so I was unable to see what surrounded the hotel until the sun rose in the morning and I was greeted by a snowy winter wonderland scene right outside my window!
