Black Forest Inn

Minneapolis, Minnesota 55407, United States

Created By:


in 1965, a German immigrant named Erich Christ took over the former Swinging Door, and turned it into the the Black Forest. Fifty-two years later, The Black Forest still draws healthy crowds for its classic Bavarian bierstube ambience, its delightful shaded patio, and the best German cuisine in the Twin Cities. Christ, who trained as a butcher in his native Germany, still makes some of the bratwurst specialties in house. Other recommended dishes include the Wiener schnitzel and apple strudel.
