This place in situated in the middle of the Forrest and a popular place for hikers to make a stopover.

The kitchen is very moderate at best. Fries that come out of deep fried bags. Sausage that is straight out of Aldi. Quality is not a thing one will find here.

Especially bad is the service. Due to a miscommunication we ordered one portion to much. I ordered the two "bockwurste" with fries. They made two portions out of that. My German is not that bad that this may happen. Don't think they made any effort on their behalf to pay back the 8.20 for a very bad pair of fries and canned sausage. In any German town this meal would cost half of what they charge here.

Next time I pass by here I'll walk on for sure!

While driving along the romantic Schwarzwaldhochstrasse (Black Forest Highway) on a beautiful weekend, we made an impromptu stop near the village of Bühl. There is a nice-looking hotel nearby but we became intrigued by the signposting to a Waldgasthaus (forest inn) called Kohlbergwiese and decided in favour of a short hike through the forest to reach it. The place looked pleasant enough (and in fact one can reach it by car, we saw) and several families and hikers were playing, lunching, and otherwise occupied on outside tables. We ordered simple meals, myself a Wurstsalat -which turned out horrible- and trout fillets for my wife -which were ok-, and two glasses of the local white wine. As always we asked for two glasses of tap water on the side.
Imagine our surprise to see 3.60 euros added to our -hand-scribbled- bill for the latter! Questioning the waitress and mild protest yielded nothing but the comment that this was "house policy" for tap water... even if it accompanies a full meal (we might have understood for instance if we just had passed by and asked for two glasses, but none of that).
Needless to say almost, this charge is nowhere on the menu and we were also not given an itemized bill. Tidy little profit there we thought, with 3.60 euro for 0.4 liters of tap water, even deducting the cost of cleaning the glasses... Tap water in Baden-Württemberg costing about 4.25 euro per cubic meter (that's 1000 liters) we are looking, nay staring goggle-eyed at a gross profit margin of about 210,000%, none of which appears to be shared with the local tax authorities. Nein danke!
