We ate the best Black Forest Gateau or Cake we ever had. On top of it we met the man makes the "Original " Black Forest Cake. His Family invented the cake. It was one of our highlights in Triberg.

The original Black Forest Gateaux served here, and it is very good - delicate cake, good cherries and cream, and just enough alcohol bite. Shame the service is rather off hand, but then if I was serving the same cake every day to hordes of...More

On a morning when we didn't eat breakfast in our hotel, I ate a piece of Black Forest cake here at 10:15 AM. It was out and ready to be served - and tasted as good as I had imagined!
