About us

Welcome to the Scherrhof! It is a pleasure for us to welcome you as our guest!

TreeThe Scherrhof in Baden-Baden is a historic woodland restaurant with a long tradition and is located 676m above sea level at the heart of Baden-Baden’s municipal forest. In the Scherrhof’s immediate vicinity the source of the River Oos can be found – the small river that meanders its way through the centre of Baden-Baden.

The Scherrhof is a popular destination for day-trippers and hikers alike and can be easily reached by car from the centre of Baden-Baden in only 12 minutes. Parking spaces are available directly in front of the building. A number of flat footpaths make going for a stroll in the forest an inviting proposition. And for hikers, the Scherrhof provides the ideal place to take a break while exploring one of the many hiking trails that pass by.

Soak up the atmosphere of the Scherrhof which prides itself on its personal touch. Celebrate an event, a family get-together, a birthday party, anniversary or wedding in this unforgettable and unusual setting.

Homemade cakes, freshly baked every day and a cup of tea or coffee can be enjoyed on our wonderful sun terrace or inside in the Scherrhof’s historic front parlour. Here you will experience a romantic atmosphere next to the large tiled stove with the old gas lamps burning above you making you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time. In fact, time has tended to stand still a little here making it the perfect place to relax and forget the stresses of modern life and to enjoy our traditional Baden hospitality!

A large sun terrace, a marquee on the meadow, a wonderfully decorated buffet or a delicious menu …the choice is yours.

Endless silence, an abundance of nature and fresh forest air accompany our cuisine which is regional, seasonal, down-to-earth and freshly prepared every day. We follow recipes passed down through the generations providing culinary pleasure that is modest and sincere and which will make you smile from within. 

And to accompany your meal: a glass of local Hatz beer freshly drawn from the barrel or a drop of fine Baden wine from one of our regional winemakers.

And what could be better that walking from the Scherrhof to the Badener Höhe, the highest peak within Baden-Baden’s boundaries. The route takes you past the Schwarzenbach reservoir up to Lake Herrenwieser, one of the Black Forest’s prettiest cirques. Cycling through the forest is also possible here along with mountain bike, E-bike, Segway and trekking tours. In winter, sledging down the natural toboggan run and snow shoe walking are on the agenda. And not far away is the Scherrhof natural playground for our younger visitors. In the evenings, we offer a fine choice of Baden & Mediterranean culinary treats together with an excellent selection of wines. By a romantic candlelight dinner you will experience the Scherrhof from a totally new perspective!

Treat yourself to a short break at the Scherrhof – we look forward to greeting you!
