Local ingredients


We try to source most of our produce from farms and gardens within the Black Forest region - and we learnt our culinary skills long before 'farm-to-table' was a brand or lifestyle. Back then it was simply - 'go run and fetch some potatoes from Farmer Franz and on your way back - pick up the greens in your mothers  garden' - and chop chop!

Crazy culinary combinations


Ever tried a home-made truffle sausage? Or a Cordon-Bleu explosion ?  Shanghai Style Pork Belly ? Whisky Beef Filet? Or even a Symphony of Ocean & River Fish ? Come on then....
Let us spoil you and take you on a journey. 

Service with a Smile


We enjoy what we do and we take true genuine pleasure in serving you. After all you have chosen to come and stay with us for a while...what a pleasure! We are  small, intimate, personal, family-run, central location, trendy, unique & approachable.
Welcome to our home -  Adler 1604!

The magical tale of a 400-year old timber house



For the past four centuries, Adler 1604 has been a place of relaxation to travelers of all walks of life. 

Here is just a small glimpse into the house of history and many traditions:

Once a lodging for noble guests; a welcome hiding place during the war, where its' end was signified by the butcher's white apron, serving as a white flag as well as the distribution of chocolates to the children in the village, marking the beginning of peaceful times and postwar friendship ...

The Adler House also served as a muse for many traveling artists, who felt compelled to pause and inspired to draw the shapely structure.

In the fifties the house became a popular holiday destination, especially for guests from the big cities and during the 1970's  international arrivals increased and began to attract celebrity guests, including stars and actors from Germany's famous 80's TV series - 'The Black Forest Clinic' who were filming in the historical town of Schiltach. 

Fun fact: Before the Adler was built in 1604, ancient herb gardens occupied the space, 

so maybe it is not so surprising,that a home of hospitality and culinary delights grew from these very grounds. 

After a 10-year rest, the Adler is described by many as a Sleeping Beauty - which presently awaits her awakening in March 2018 under the caring new leadership of Mr. & Mrs. Meier. 

We look forward to welcoming you.
