The Art of Excellence
Art: creative expression that engages with nature, the world and its people. Tourism pioneer Meinrad Schmiederer masters the art of travel and excellent service like no one else. In just four decades, he has transformed the Dollenberg Black Forest Resort in Bad Peterstal-Griesbach from a two-bedroom guesthouse into a Luxury Forest Resort winner at the World Luxury Hotel Awards. Two-Michelin-starred gastronomy at on-site restaurant Le Pavillon, led by acclaimed chef Martin Herrmann, accentuates this excellence perfectly.
The Dollenberg is also home to the DOLLINA Spa & Health, one of Germany’s TOP three spas and winner of multiple international awards. Securing a position at the top of both spa and gourmet segments is very rare – and it’s even rarer for such honours to be maintained for decades. And even this is exceeded by the exclusive service quality and unsurpassed elegance in the art of hospitality that has been established by Mr Schmiederer, a man whose unbridled innovative spirit is second to none.
Hotel Facts: an Overview
2-Michelin-starred chef Martin Herrmann, sous chef Caroline Schenk and their 25-strong team are the Dollenberg’s gourmet heart. They are responsible for the cuisine at the hotel’s four restaurants: the Kaminstube, the Bauernstube, the multi-award-winning gourmet restaurant Le Pavillon, and the Renchtalhütte. What’s more, they also host culinary events and weekly highlights such as the Tischlein, Deck Dich! hiking and dining experience, kitchen parties and long table events.
Black Forest Healing
The DOLLINA Spa & Health aims to provide holistic relaxation on multiple levels. Its multi-award-winning spa concept combines the best of all worlds with an excellent exercise and relaxation philosophy, a team of knowledgeable experts, luxurious and constantly updated infrastructure, and a comprehensive selection of treatment options. As a nearby medicinal spring feeds water directly into the pools, there can only be one primary focus here: health.
The spa treatments at the Dollenberg are specifically tailored to the needs of their target groups. Reinvigorating therapies, exclusive massages, renowned natural cosmetics and highly effective body packs are combined with preventative concepts and eastern healing techniques such as Ayurveda, meditation and Yoga, as well as supplementary medical-therapeutic programmes.
Forests, Moors & Vineyards
The nearby Black Forest National Park, with its spruce, fir and beech forests; mountain pastures; moors and lakes, is characterised by a unique landscape and offers guests an authentic natural experience with a multitude of outdoor activities. The Dollenberg itself is surrounded by the hotel’s own park, with vineyards and a network of footpaths featuring benches by German artist Willi Henke and sculptures by Swiss artist Housi Knecht. 70,000sqm of serenity, a true tonic for the soul. Trips to Strasbourg, Freiburg and Baden-Baden offer cultural insights.

Art & Nature
A celebration of life. The lightness of being. Surrounded by fragrant roses, azaleas and hydrangeas.
Favourite spots – for dreaming. Art – for creative inspiration. Power spots – for topping up energy. Sheer indulgence – for the palate and soul.
Fine wines, sweet temptations. Award-winning dinner under (and with) the stars, among the flowers, with a view … the delights run through the Dollenberg like a golden thread, weaving a web across borders, connecting people, nature, worlds …
Immersion in sheer bliss. A place of rest and pure wellbeing. Cocooning par excellence. A unique private atmosphere.
Private. Apart. Alone – at one with the gentleness and wild strength of water and nature.
