Information in brief


The municipality of Waldachtal came into being as part of the local government reform in 1974 through the merger of the communities of Cresbach, H√∂rschweiler, L√ľtzenhardt, Salzstetten and Tumlingen, which were independent up until then. The stimulating mild climate in the gentle valley of the Waldach is suitable for relaxation, holiday and a health cure all the year round. 140 km of well sign-posted and mostly flat hiking trails open up the shady coniferous forests, and also provide the opportunity for Nordic walking or cycle tours.
