Town Schiltach

Schiltach, the small romantic town of half timber framed houses, was first mentioned as a parish in 1275. It lies in the upper Kinzig valley in the Black Forest and its appearance has hardly changed since the middle ages. Schiltach is still famous as a town for timber framed buildings, timber rafting and tanners.

Numerous half-timber framed buildings surround the market square which resembles scenes that can be found in picture books. The historic centre and symbol of Schiltach is the town hall which was built more than 400 years ago.

A complete contrast to the historical old town is the industrial estate, where world famous companies have their head quarters. They produce bathroom and shower fittings (Hansgrohe), auto fittings (BBS) as well as fine measurement instruments (VEGA). There are around 3000 jobs in Schiltach connected to the industrial, handcraft, and service industries.
