Wellbeing, enjoyment & relaxation at the Ludinmühle

Your 4 star Superior Hotel in the Black Forest

Those special moments are the ones that stay with you. Let us charm you with our hospitality and warmth during your stay in our 4 star Superior hotel & spa in the Black Forest and help you spend a relaxing holiday in the rural idyll of Brettental.

Our hotel has a rich tradition that has been built up over generations. The cosy rooms & suites are spread across three buildings: the Stammhaus (original building) – the site of the former Ludin Mill from 1702, the Haupthaus (main building), which is reached via a little bridge over the Brettenbach stream, and the Mühlbach guest house.

A holiday resort for your break in the Black Forest

Haupthaus (main building) with wellbeing, spa and gourmet cuisine

Wellbeing for body and soul is the focus in the Haupthaus. Our Genießergärtchen (gastronomic garden), extensive spa complex with swimming pools and cookery school provide all the variety you could wish for – whether you're on a spa weekend or on holiday in the Black Forest.

The Stammhaus (original building) – a place to make the most of life

Culinary delights are in store for you in the Stammhaus. Our Restaurant in Freiamt, the bistros, the Olivengarten and the Rosengarten will provide you with whatever your heart desires, from home‑made cakes right through to a gourmet meal with wine.

Accessible accommodation in our 4 star hotel in the Black Forest

The Mühlen suite in the Mühlbach guest house, only a short distance from the original building and the main building, is accessible for wheelchair users. The suite’s accessible rooms mean that everyone can enjoy their holiday, whatever their requirements.

4 star holiday in the Black Forest for the whole family

In the Alten Schulhaus (Old Schoolhouse), right behind the Haupthaus (main building), is our Kinderparadies (children’s paradise) with childcare. Holidays are a time for family – and you will have the best time at our family‑friendly hotel in the Black Forest. And it’s not just the children who’ll love it – relax with them in the Ludintherme thermal bath (swimsuit area) or let yourself be pampered with treatments and massages in our spa area.

Staying in our Black Forest holiday hotel

All our spaces are stylish, comfortable and welcoming.

From our rooms and suites, lovingly furnished in every detail, with sweet treats left on your pillow every evening, to our cosy restaurant and bistros through to the Geschenklädle - our hotel boutique, where you will find regional specialities and tasty mementoes of your time with us.

Walter Zimmermann and his team are dedicated hosts and look forward not only to pampering you but also to paying attention to the little things that just put a smile on your face.

Personal service and a warm welcome at the 4 star superior hotel

Outstanding service is a key component of our approach to wellbeing at our family‑run hotel & spa in the Black Forest. We will be delighted to help you with any questions or requests and to provide you with advice about holidaying with us at the Ludinmühle
