The Black Forest is an enjoyable place to sample classic German foods and the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful in making suggestions. I had a schnitzel topped with a bratwurst which was excellent along with some very tasty spaetzle.

Most of the restaurants take advantage of the view, so unless you have a hankering for a beer stein and sausage there are other places with tastier food. The shnitzel sandwich was very one note. The two kraut choices on the sausage plate were good.

Google maps is your best bet always to check directions and distances. :) Shows as one and half to two hours drive from Vancouver. Add two and a half hours to that from Whistler.
