The Schwarzwald Inn: "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate."
"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."
No one ever knew why Dante's immortal words were blazoned in gothic script over the enormous oaken doors of this Teutonic Olney caravanserai, but they were. The "In place for the In crowd" from the roaring 20's through the swinging 60's and well into the dark unnameable years beyond, the Schwarzwald fed good wholesome steaks, chops, saurbraten, sausages, potatoes and kraut to both high and low. Featuring sterling entertainment every night but Tuesday, some Schwarzwald regulars are profiled in our series "Legends of the Schwarzwald".
