Calw-Lage optimal


A charming little town in central location

Situated about 50 km south-west of the Baden-Wuerttemberg state capital Stuttgart and 30 km south of the “Golden City” of Pforzheim, Calw is the gateway to the Central/North Black Forest Nature Park.

From the town centre to the woods on foot

The historic old town and the town districts to the west are surrounded by extensive dark green coniferous forests. A “green belt” encompasses Calw – the municipal forest starts directly behind the picturesque market place.


The district-affiliated town of Calw with its 13 town districts and more than 23,000 inhabitants lies right in the heart of Baden-Wuerttemberg. With a surface area of about 60 km2 it is the largest town in the District of Calw.

Particularly charming

To the east it adjoins the region known as the “Heckengäu”. This unspoilt rural landscape is characterised by extensive meadow orchards and blackthorn and juniper heathland – it offers infinite opportunities for exploring.

Calw – Town by the river

Nestled in the valley of the river Nagold and its surrounding hillsides, Calw is located in the middle of the Northern Black Forest adventure region. The river Nagold forms a natural border between the native landscape of the Northern Black Forest in the south west and the “Heckengäu” to the north east.
