Great location, great hosts, great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Haus Wussler sits high above the Kinzig valley overlooking the historic old town of Gengenbach on the eastern side of the Black Forest.

We’d not visited the area before and having booked online, were taking a bit of a risk with both the location and accommodation. However, our concerns were unfounded as Haus Wussler exceeded our expectations in every respect. The apartments were well furnished and clean with beautiful views over the surrounding valley and forested hills. The owners could not do enough to help by pointing out local events and areas of interest, as well as local restaurants and shops. Haus Wussler is a working farm and children are encouraged to help at feeding time. For adults, there is an opportunity to sample and purchase the Schnapps produced on the farm.

Gengenbach provides a great base for exploring the Black Forest and the Alsace, just across the Rhine in France. However, a car is essential unless you want to spend your time walking or cycling around the local area. Places as far away as the Titisee and Freiburg are easy enough to visit in a day.

We have no hesitation in recommending Haus Wussler for either a quiet relaxing holiday or as a base to explore the area. The owners are the ideal hosts and we are grateful to them for that. We’ll be back!

Excellent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Swallow's Nest Apartment for one week. The accommodation was excellent. Very clean, comfortable and contained everything we needed. The outside seating area was also appreciated and great for stargazing. Barbara and Erwin were excellent hosts, most welcoming, helpful and informative. The area was beautiful and we found lots to see and do. We will definitely stay here again when we revisit the area. Thanks to Barbara for making our stay so enjoyable.

'Panoramic View'

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Haus Wussler certainly lived up to its name. The views were outstanding. The apartment was well presented and clean, everything we needed was there. The owner was very helpful and was always there to answer any questions. The aura is excellent for seeing and doing things. It was very warm while we where there and so made the most of the balcony and terrace and relaxed. Did have a few days out, making use of the guest card for free local transport. Also Badan Baden thermal baths is to be recommended.

We had passed though the area before stopping off for a couple of days en route to other places, so our first full week there, we shall be back and hopefully will be able to stay at Haus Wussler again.

Well presented clean and spacious. Ideal for the three of us, the Sofa Bed was of a very good quality and comfortable. Stunning Views, walks very close by. You must visit Gengenbach very picturesque, there are many other interesting places to visit. Barbara can give you lots of useful help and information on these, she was extremely helpful and you couldn't ask for a better host. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her Husband. It comes highly recommended by us.
