The iconic Traube Tonbach, known for its culinar y ar tistry, was the first hotel in the Black Forest to have a swimming pool and Finnish saunas – half a century ago. Its wellness facilities have since been expanded, making use of existing structures as well as the hotel’s nature-based architectural style. Around 4,300 m3 of earth were removed to embed the wellness area into the landscape, invisible from outside. The result is a spa complex and centre of well-being that received the renowned iF design award for its architecture and superb arrangement of individual spa elements.
