Seelbach is a renowned officially recognised climatic health resort in the central Black Forest.
There are historic buildings worth seeing, churches, an outdoor swimming pool, wonderful sauna and wellness offers and last but not least two castle ruins. The Geroldseck castle ruins are the area's symbol. You have a beautiful view of these from all parts of the farm.
The idyllic Lützelhard castle ruins, which are located above our farm, are a 15 minutes' walk away. Here, in the southern part of the Ortenau region, we enjoy the advantages of a varied countryside consisting of a well-balanced mixture of forest and meadows.
The Rhine plains with neighbouring Alsace as well as the vineyards of the Ortenau region which is renowned for its good Baden cuisine are nearby. You can explore the area by hiking, Nordic walking or mountain bike (also with GPS), by riding a bicycle or in an even more leisurely way by e-bike. In the neighbouring village there are outdoor swimming pools as well as an indoor swimming pool, two very nice golf courses and plenty of sights, of course.
You can certainly look forward to the subtle interplay of Black Forest traditions and modernity.
