Baiersbronn is a municipality in the district of Freudenstadt in Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany. It is situated in the Black Forest on the Murg river. Nearby is the mountain of Rinkenkopf (759.6 m) with its hillfort, the Rinkenwall.

Administratively, Baiersbronn consists of the following nine villages:

In its current form, Baiersbronn was created in the 1960s and 1970s by joining five municipalities. Its main industry is tourism.

Baiersbronn is twinned with Midhurst in West Sussex, England. Reichenbach Priory, a medieval monastery building, is located in the village of Klosterreichenbach.

Baiersbronn is famous as a centre of haute cuisine in Germany, having 8 Michelin stars in total. In 2007 Claus-Peter Lumpp, whose restaurant Bareiss is the second three-star eatery in the town of Baiersbronn earned his third Michelin star. Lumpp's neighbour, Harald Wohlfahrt, of Schwarzwaldstube had joined the three-star list in 1992. The final two stars are held by Jörg Sackmann at his restaurant Schlossberg. According to the New York Times of April 2013, Baiersbronn has the same number of Michelin three-star restaurants as London and twice as many as Chicago.[2] According to the New York Times, "Baiersbronn is now on its way to becoming recognized as the world’s most unexpected restaurant capital."[3]
