Geroldsauer Mühle

Meeting point: there will be buses going at 18:30 in front of the conference venue, taking us to the Geroldsauer Mühle.

As gate to the Black Forest, the Geroldsauer Mühle (mill) is known thanks to its geographical location, as well as thanks to its offer to experience the Black Forest in its purest form.

This landmark is one of the largest silver fir buildings in the whole region. In the left wing, it disposes of a restaurant and an extensive beer garden in a scenic setting. Here you will find regional specialties and the hospitality so typical of Baden. The right wing of the building offers a mill market featuring a selection of regional and organic foods. You can e.g. watch the bakery right next door creating baked goods using its own mill, the butcher of the mill market offering high-quality meats from select nature park businesses in the Black Forest or buy unique decorative goods and artistic works for your home.

Finally, the Central/Northern Black Forest Nature Park, one of Germany’s largest nature parks, as well as the Black Forest National Park and the municipality of Baden-Baden are represented on the second floor of the Geroldsauer Mühle with a varied exhibition on the region’s attractions. Discover the Black Forest and its diverse natural and cultural landscape first-hand, looking at interesting images of woodlands, fields and meadows – and a range of further experiences.
