The Gutach Valley is a side valley of the Kinzig valley, which the Black Forest Railway runs through between Hausach and St. Georgen. Together with the neighbouring villages of Kirnbach (near Wolfach) and Reichenbach (near Hornberg), Gutach is the home of the Bollenhut, a traditional ladies' hat topped with pom-poms, which is a symbol for the Black Forest as a whole.
