Stop by in a natural paradise – at the Forellenhof Buhlbach

The centuries-old Forellenhof is sited in a really wonderful location in the heart of the Buhlbach conservation area. Hospitality and fish farming have a long tradition here – and, after extensive refurbishing work, the old »Fischerstüble« became an impressive Black Forest house in 2017. The Forellenhof team offers a range of fresh trout specialities and hearty snacks in the cosy parlours – the »Forellenstube« and the »Buhlbachstube« – and on the spacious sun terrace. Freshly smoked trout and other delicacies can also be purchased in the shop here. On request, we would also be pleased to organise private parties and invitations here. Drop in for a meal here, where everyone is most sincerely welcome!

Dear guests

Despite the situation, about which the responsible authorities and politicians have informed us in great detail, we at the Bareiss have much to feel grateful for: many of you have phoned, or used e-mail or social networks, to send us your best wishes, hoping that we will weather the crisis safe and sound. Your connectedness and loyalty do us good – we are enormously pleased about this, and thank you wholeheartedly in the same spirit!

We are following the instructions of the Baden-Wuerttemberg state government very closely in order to ensure that we all survive this crisis. The entire hotel sector, and thus our resort too, have been directly affected. We have therefore temporarily closed our hotel since 18 March, as well as our Sattelei Hiking Cabin, the Forellenhof Buhlbach and the historic Morlokhof.

Whenever the time after the coronavirus comes – and it will most definitely come – we will be ready and waiting to be your host again. Of this we are certain. And we look forward to it! But this time can only come, our Chancellor Angela Merkel could not appeal to us more emphatically, if everyone does what they can and should do: namely protect themselves and others in order to stay healthy.

The best protection at present is to remain close with your heart to those whose presence we must do without for a while. Only then can there be a getting together again, a reunion in health, that will be all the more pleasurable.

Dear guests, we miss you a lot! Look after yourselves and your families. Stay healthy. During these difficult times, retain your optimism and confidence that you so sympathetically and sincerely wish us. In this way, we stand together: with you, with all our employees, and with our own family.

We will see what has so often proved the case: we are strong when we share a common purpose.


We and all our employees send our most sincere greetings.

Your Bareiss family

Das Landschaftsschutzgebiet Buhlbach – ein Naturparadies

The Buhlbach conservation area is protected against human interventions in order to maintain its natural types of vegetation. A piece of countryside whose natural integrity can be experienced close up and seen in the courses of the streams, in the floodplains, the meadows and forest. Our commitment to this wonderful piece of land is an expression of our aspiration to preserve nature, our awareness of tradition, and our forward-looking approach.

This environment guarantees ideal breeding and growing conditions for our fish stocks: the water temperature is between 6°-7°C, depending on the season; the continuously monitored pH value is between 7 and 8.

Sustainable fish farming with tradition

Sustainability and ecological responsibility are combined with personal passion at the Forellenhof Fish Farm: the site consists of 17 basins and ponds that are directly fed from the natural source of the »Leinbächle« stream. Rainbow trout, salmon trout, brown trout, golden trout and char grow here under ideal conditions. Our trained fish farmers care for the water and stock quality, and offer tours to those interested in gaining an insight into the operation of such a farm.

We also support a pilot project in partnership with Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research: whitefish from Lake Constance and European crayfish, cared for and monitored by our fish farmers, have been placed in one of the two natural ponds on the side of the valley to research their possible breeding side-by-side in a polyculture.


We offer a selection of fresh fish, finely smoked trout specialities, and other delicious products from our master chefs to take with you to enjoy at home or as a welcome present. The range changes seasonally; we recommend that you telephone in advance if you have special wishes or would like to purchase a larger quantity.

The »Forellenlädle« is open daily from 9.00 a.m. to noon.

Celebrations and Parties at the Forellenhof Buhlbach

On request, the »Forellenstube«, »Buhlbachstube« and sun terrace are also available for private functions, parties and celebrations. Including professional advice, perfect organisation and comprehensive service.
We make individual menu suggestions according to your ideas, ensure that there is a comfortable undisturbed atmosphere, and accompany you with unobtrusive helpfulness. So that your invitation becomes a memorable experience for you, and a convincing recommendation for us. We look forward to hearing from you!
