"Fairy tales always seem more believable when you're in the Black Forest" (Frommers). In the quaint town of Schömberg in the Northern Black Forest, some dreams just might come true: First, there is the famous Black Forest Cake. At Hotel Talblick you can taste the real deal. Our king-size Black Forest cake (20 cm tall and loaded with a quarter-liter of Black Forest cherry brandy) has earned two gold medals for Hotel Manager and Head Pastry chef Jürgen Seibold. Second, Schömberg is the only "Happiness Town" (Glücksgemeinde) in Germany, the result of a partnership with the Kingdom of Bhutan, which is known for its gross national happiness index and undoubtedly the planet's leading nation in terms of well-being, politeness and happiness.
