Here you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions

Where exactly is the Golden Rooster (Main Building and Residence) in Baiersbronn?
The Golden Rooster is in Baiersbronn-Oberdorf, the old district of Baiersbronn, in a sunny, elevated position. The main building at number 72, Oberdorfstrasse is made up of the “Appartementhaus”, “Landhaus” and “Stammhaus”. All three buildings are connected, so our fitness facilities (indoor pool, sauna and table tennis), children's games room are all under one roof.
The apartments in the Residence building (number 4, Hirschkopfweg) are only 15 minutes walk from the main building.

What is the difference when staying in the main building?
The swimming pool, finnish sauna, steam room, relaxation room, playroom, playground and breakfast room are accessible from all apartments in the main building. Just a few steps from the main house are several restaurants, bakeries, cafes, a supermarket and a bus stop.

What are the advantages of the Residence?
The Residence is located on a steep slope right at the edge of the forest, about 15 minutes’ walk from the main building. Each "Wellness Suites" offers an infra red cabin.
Unfortunately, in the Residence there is no breakfast or bread service.
The SCHWARZWALD PLUS card is now available for all guests in the Waldhaus Residence: More information at
Black Forest Plus is an invitation from us as hosts and a very special service for you: Your Black Forest Plus card is the key to more than 80 Black Forest attractions: free of charge and every day.

How does the WLAN wireless internet work?
You can access our WLAN wireless internet on the ground floor of the main house and in the Residence at all times, free of charge.

Self-Catering Apartments- how is the kitchen/kitchette equipped? Should I take anything with me?
Dishwasher, refrigerator with ice-box, electric cooker, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans and tea-towels are all supplied. Some apartments have a microwave and some categories also offer a “Senseo” coffee machine. Please bring a blender and a Teflon pan with you.

Are towels and bathrobes available?
For stays of seven nights or longer, a laundry set (bath towels and bed linen) is provided, but please also bring beach towels for the pool and spa with you. Bathrobes (rental fee €5) for adults and for children are available at the reception. For stays shorter than one week, the laundry set must be pre-booked. We charge €15 per person for linen and towels.

Is there a washing machine available?
We will wash and dry laundry for you in the main building. We charge €6 per laundry basket for washing or drying.

Is there carpet?

Can I also book spa treatments on-site?
Due to popular demand, it is advisable to book any spa treatments four weeks prior to your arrival by calling us. Please inform the reception shortly before the appointment so that we "prepare" the treatment room. For treatments without prior booking, we cannot guarantee availability.

Can I also sign up on site for the breakfast buffet?
Since the minimum number of participants for the breakfast buffet at the Golden Rooster is 8 adults, you should book in advance if interested; this is especially true for the first morning after arrival. Should less than 8 adults sign up, you can also find a breakfast buffet at one of the surrounding tea rooms - we are happy to recommend where. If the minimum number of participants for an entire week of the holiday has already been reached, you can always sign up until 11 o’clock noon the day before.

Within a very short walking distance along the Oberdorfstrasse, there are the restaurants "Falken" und "Tomahawk".
