More than 200 years ago the “Guest House Schwarzenbach” already existed.
The Schwarzenbach host was located on the old road at Dietringen, known today as Lake Forggensee. The foundation walls can be seen this very day in wintertime when the lake is drained.
The Guest House was at the beginning of a long path, which had steep inclines and ended on a stone cross at Roßhaupten. The host kept ready the necessary bias – horses and oxen -for the mountain route. Since the teamsters were on the way in good visibility even at night, the old host always slept fully dressed in the taproom, close to the street. If teamsters needed help, the host was ready on site with his whip and the animals harnessed. The early start of work left him whimsically proclaim once again: „When the farmers get up, we have already earned our money“.
