During a recent vacation to Germany’s Black Forest, my wife and I stayed at the lovely little Hotel Kreuzblume in Freiburg. For years I’d wanted to visit that quaint little town in southwestern Germany, and was not disappointed despite the rain while we were there. The hotel is located on a narrow cobblestone street, draped with flowers, in the historic district which is full of museums, shops, eateries, and nice places to stroll. A few blocks away you can hike up the Schlossberg for a beer and great view of the town and its surroundings. There’s a central shopping street with a somewhat gross McDonalds sign plastered onto one of the arched old gateways. (I can bet the old timers loved to see that sign put up! I found it offensive, and I don’t even live there.)
Anyway, we enjoyed our small, but well-kept room, and the owners and chefs (brothers, I think) were very accommodating to our needs – even bringing up some complementary hot tea when my wife felt a little under the weather. While there was no lobby in the hotel where we could just sit and relax, there was a very nice restaurant on the ground floor where you choose your meal from a list based on the number of courses you’d like. I chose a two-course meal and was impressed by the excellent taste and presentation. A very pleasant eating experience. I arrived for dinner a little before the traditional dinner hour, so at first I thought I would have the restaurant to myself, but it soon filled up. If there was a small downside, there was not always someone at the desk 24/7 (which also served as the bar in the restaurant), but for us it was no problem. There was always someone there in late afternoon and I imagine you could call for assistance from your room if necessary. I highly recommend this place with its photogenic setting in the old town section of Freiburg, just a stones’ throw from the Augustiner Museum.
