Welcome to Calw

With its almost 22,500 inhabitants, the district capital Calw is today also the largest town in the Calw administrative district. Nestled in the Nagold valley, the local recreational area, Calw is often referred to as the northern gateway to the Black Forest. The river Nagold, which flows right through the centre of the town, forms a natural boundary between the natural landscape of the Northern Black Forest in the South West and the Heckengäu plateau in the
North East.

Almost the entire centre of Calw is under monument protection. More than 200 buildings are listed houses dating
back to the late 17th century. Half-timbered buildings in Southern Germany differ from region to region on account of their great variety of stylistic elements. Stroll through the town with their streets lined with half-timbered houses - either on your own or with a guided tour.
