The Sattelei Hiking Cabin – refreshment at the heart of »Hiking Heaven«

Our Sattelei Hiking Cabin, at a height of 706 metres and located between Mitteltal and Tonbachtal at the heart of the extensively branching »Baierbronner Wanderhimmel« (Baierbronn Hiking Heaven), is the perfect place for a short break for refreshments, a hearty snack, or coffee and cake, inside the parlours or outside on the large sunny terrace. It is open all year, can be reached in just over three-quarters of an hour from the hotel at average walking speed, and is recommended as somewhere to drop in for refreshment while on the move, a specific destination for a day out, or the backdrop for special occasions and celebrations. Time flies here – in good company with a cosy atmosphere and endearing hospitality – and the menu also makes its contribution towards one’s pleasure.

Opening hours
Monday to Saturday from 11.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
Sunday from 11.00 a.m. to 9.30 p.m.

For those who wish to enjoy exclusive large or small parties here, the Sattelei Hiking Cabin is also open in the evenings.

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


Many of you wanted to know the following:

We will, of course, uphold long-term bookings in the hope that we can all return to normality in the nearest possible future. Naturally, we will react to every change in the overall situation as rapidly as possible and keep you informed here.

You can also reach us by phone at +49 (0)7442 47-0 daily from 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. if you have any questions at all.



The best of both worlds

Enjoy the traditional classics of Baden and Swabian cuisine, freshly prepared and lovingly arranged, served with a classic quarter litre of wine or a freshly drawn pils. From homemade crackling lard with onions and herbs to jellied beef from Mitteltal free-range cattle or scalded pork sausage; from a savoury cabin snack with black pudding and liver sausage to Murg Valley sausage salad; from Swabian cottage cheese to Gaisburger Marsch (Swabian beef stew), potato soup with croutons or Swabian ravioli. Coffee, ice cream and cakes are also available, of course! We wish you bon appétit – enjoy!

The winter recommendations at the Sattelei Hiking Hut:

A cup of mulled wine to warm up, or a glass of sparkling wine with elderberry liqueur.
For refreshment: an wintertime gourmet salad with bacon and croûtons or a pea stew with smoked pork shoulder.
For desert: fruit with rum, cinnamon and ice cream.
