Map to Grundbauernhof

This farm is owned and operated by the wonderful Maier family. Stephan speaks some English and both he and his wife Martina are exceptionally nice and friendly.

This apartment has a single room and a double room, a kitchen with a stocked refrigerator and living room with TV and stereo system.

The comfortable living room opens out onto a large balcony with a nice view of the valley.

For dinner I recommend an old favorite in Schuttertal - the Gasthaus Schutterblick - for Kalbschnitzel and excellent Käsespätzle.

Next Day

First stop - the Vogtsbauernhof. What better way to start off a day than searching thru old farmhouses and refreshing your appreciation of how tough life was for previous generations of farmers in this region.

The original Vogtsbauernhof - built in 1612 at this location

The Falkenhof built in 1737

No TV - no radio - no internet - how did they ever do it...

From there to the Wolfach area and a short tour of the Dorotheenhütte glass blowing factory.

Just one of the many display rooms of hand blown ornaments...

Near Wolfach...

Wolfach and the surrounding region are full of great looking houses and farms...

Then it was on to the beautiful old village of Gengenbach with it's many half-timbered houses and cobblestoned streets. I always enjoy walking the Altstadt here and browsing the little shops.
