Experience the Black Forest Hotel Rainhof Scheune

I lean back comfortably. My legs still tingle from the wonderfully cold immersion bath next to the sauna. I feel warmed up, refreshed and arrived. The fireplace crackles and a panorama window invites you to dream. I am surrounded by calm and a short slumber. I almost think I can smell the hay that was once stored here and my gaze wanders admiringly over the impressive wooden structure of the historic roof structure. The support beam stretches up next to me, massive and massive. And in a miraculous way it merges with the framework that towers over me. My eyes search for a moment, but not a single nail is visible. Wood engages wood. Seamless. Timeless. One floor below, the rustic flair of the hiking room is waiting for me. Lots of wood, soft light, brick walls and a rustic door tell whispered old stories here.
