Hinterzarten was a surprising gem of a place to be based in the region and the staff, food and surroundings of Hotel Thomahof were all excellent We had easy access to Titisee and Schluchsee but came home to a wonderfully relaxing hotel and village. I ended up liking Hinterzarten far better than either of the more touristy lake towns. We booked a spa package with half board and it was very relaxing. The pros--The food was excellent (we truly dined) and the service in the hotel and restaurant was very personal. The staff really went out of their way to make you feel at home. The hiking and biking trails were also very abundant, nice and just outside the hotel's door and had all levels. I enjoyed several beautiful hikes and jogs and had plenty of routes to choose from.
Cons--I would not recommend the massages unless you like a very soft touch. I got the impression that the women giving the massage mostly does facials. She was very nice and certainly very service-oriented but for anyone used to more muscle relaxing massages, don't get them here. The only other con is that it was advertised that all rooms had wifi and the room we were in didn't hold cell calls or internet so I had to go down to the lobby whenever I wanted to use my internet or call home. Not a big deal since I really only checked in once a day and had expressly gone there to relax and unplug.
i'd gladly go back and try this place again during cross-country season as the area is peaceful and gorgeous.
