I first stayed at the Rote Late Hohenhotel in the early 2000's when I was participating in a company offsite. The hotel location is at a top of a mountain just outside of Baden Baden. The views are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen, the hotel staff are friendly and the food is excellent. At night, I remember hearing owls in the forest that surround the hotel. Whenever I am in that part of Germany I always bring my colleagues up to the hotel for lunch and they all are equally impressed with the location. Whenever I think of my favorite places I've been to in the world, this is near the top of the list!
We found this hotel by accident last year. The weather was foul, wet and windy with very low cloud. We were trying to get to Baden-Baden to find a place when we came across the Rote Lache at the top of the hill and the light was failing. We found they had a room so we stayed, and how pleased we were. Comfy, clean, accomodation and very good food. Weather next day just as foul, but you could see the view. Have been back for a longer stay this year and will be going back as long as I am able. Just to sit and look - maybe - but try the kuchen, especially the Heidelberg, 25-30mm thick of lucious winberries. Heaven. Ignore the very slightly used parts, this is just one of those special places.
Discovered this gem of a hotel more than 25 years ago on a weekend stopover in Baden Baden.Have stayed in 5 star hotels with Michelin star resturaunts all over the world but If I had to choose the place that to this day,still puts a smile on my face whenever I think about it Hotel Rote Lache is the place for me. On a warm spring afternoon with a wheat beer or coffee in one hand & a piece of home made cake in the other sitting on a bench looking down the valley at the distant views beyond,believe me when I say you are as close as is possible to heaven on earth.
