Embedded in five valleys and surrounded by three picturesque castles the center of this friendly Black Forest town (21,800 inhabitants) is situated. Schramberg is characterized by the history of the clock production. Witnesses of this epoch are historical buildings and a whole department in the Municipal Museum is dedicated to the clocks and watches. The Diesel Museum is housed in the former Hamburg-American watch factory and indicates the innovative power of this time.
Nowadays the “valley town” offers to the visitor the perfect ambience to arrange ones vacation as best as possible. The spacious pedestrian precinct attracts the guest with its many specialized shops and restaurants. One can make use of the rich cultural offer comprising concerts (e.g. with the unique Walcker organ), exhibitions or theatre performances and last but not least the Fasnet (carnival) culminating in the Da-Bach-na-Fahrt procession on the Monday before Lent.
One will find most sports and recreational facilities on the hill in the quarter of Sulgen, the majority of them within walking distance from the holiday village situated there as well.
From Sulgen one can (e.g. by bicycle) easily make minor excursions, e.g. to Heiligenbronn with its monastery or to the minigolf playing field of Schönbronn. As a meeting place of families, both natives and visitors like Waldmössingen with its zoological preserve, its Roman fort and its generously designed playground.
