On the edge of the Middle Black Forest, centrally located between Stuttgart and Lake Constance in the border triangle of Germany, France, and Switzerland, Villingen-Schwenningen is an ideal destination for an interesting city trip or a vacation in a unique landscape. Enjoy the liveable and lovable city with its many possibilities and discover what it has to offer. Explore the historical city center of Villingen with its numerous sights, beautiful half-timbered houses, romantic alleys, and babbling brooks. Embark on a fascinating tour into the past of the Zähringer town, because the almost intact town wall with its mighty fortified gate towers, which enclose the Zähringer street cross, is also worth a visit. Enjoy the variety of Baden and Swabian cuisine during a break in one of the numerous restaurants and cafés. The Franciscan Museum takes you on a journey through time to the history of Villingen and the Black Forest.
In the evenings, indulge in a high-class concert or a theater performance. In Schwenningen, once the world's largest clock city, the time has not stood still. Here the duet of tradition and progress works. Here is a magnificent Wilhelminian-style villa, and there is a modern building-a symbiosis that never ceases to surprise. You can find a lot of interesting information in the Clock Industry Museum or the International Aviation Museum. For art lovers, the municipal gallery offers renowned exhibitions.
For one night only, in July each year, at the Schwenninger Culture Night, the city center is transformed into a cultural mile for one night, with dance, music, and a varied food offer.
