Modern times

Until the municipal reform in 1972, the towns of Aselfingen and Überachen in the Wutachtal and the towns of Eschach and Opferdingen in the Krottenbachtal, the so-called Obertal, belonged to the former main town of Achdorf . In the former area, the desert areas of Helzenhofen and Katzaunstaige were located south of Achdorf, Weschbach and Mühlefingen west of Aselfingen, Bachreuthof and Dampfhausen north of Aselfingen in the Aubach Valley, Zimmer and Keglingen in the triangle of Opferdingen, Eschach and Riedböhrigen in the forest. The deserted villages are still partially Gewannamen .


The Wutach has dug itself deep into the sedimentary rocks of the Jura . Around Achdorf there are some outcrops of the Lias . On the steep slope of Eichbergs among others are pyritized ammonites of Doggerformation found.

Infrastructure and economy

The community is dominated by agriculture; a few farms are run as their main occupation. In addition, tourism has long been an important source of income.



The K 5742 cuts through the municipality from north to south. It connects the villages of Achdorf, Eschach and Opferdingen with the neighboring villages of Fützen in the south and Hausen vor Wald , northeast of Opferdingen. The Achdorf-Fützen road section is also a listed building and is often referred to by the locals as a corrugated iron path , not only because of the interesting route . It leads over slope formations of the Keuper which together with source horizons leads to this wave formation . The district roads 5747 and 5743 are the roads from Achdorf to Blumberg or in the direction of Wutachmühle to the district boundary, the K5744 connects sacrifices with Riedböhringen. There are also several municipal roads that connect the Achdorf Valley with the towns of Lausheim , Blumegg and Ewattingen in the Waldshut district.


The Wutach Valley Railway , inaugurated in 1890, was to be connected to the Neustadt in the Black Forest-Bonndorf railway line in the Black Forest via a switch at Lausheim station through the Wutachfluchten and the upper Wutach Valley . Due to the wars in the first half of the 20th century and the advent of the automobile, the plans were finally discarded. The Neustadt - Bonndorf railway line has been completely dismantled.
