The Relais & Châteaux Dollenberg’s Kaminstube has also retained its desired Bib Gourmand status – granted for excellent value for money – one of 371 restaurants named in the Bib Gourmand Guide Germany 2020, down by 52 on 2019.
Chef de Cuisine Martin Herrmann has been shaping Germany’s haute cuisine with Michelin’s endorsement for more than 20 years. Under his leadership, Le Pavillon received its first Michelin star in 1998 and its second in 2010. His talent was spotted and nurtured by Dollenberg’s owner Meinrad Schmiederer, an esteemed chef in his own right, who applauded the culinary superstar saying: ‘……A terrific achievement by Martin Herrmann and his team. And for so many years! Congratulations and thank you very much for this effort!’
Herrmann said he was delighted and humbled in equal measure, thanking his team, his loyal guests and his family for their support. Hermann is married to Meinrad Schmiederer’s sister.
Fast becoming a gourmet destination, Germany has the highest number of 3 Michelin star rated restaurants (10) in its history and 53 with 2 or 3 stars.
The 5-star superior Relais & Châteaux Dollenberg in Bad Peterstal-Griesbach is a haven of peace and luxury in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Black Forest.

Five pools and a mountain lake soothe and satisfy, using Bad Peterstal-Griesbach’s medicinal spring water.
