About this picture

The district of Calw is a regional authority in Baden-Württemberg . It belongs to the Northern Black Forest region in the Karlsruhe administrative district .



In terms of landscape, the area of ​​the district of Calw belongs predominantly to the northern Black Forest , only in the east and south some places belong to the Gäu or Black Forest foothills. Significant rivers in the district are Enz and Nagold , which with their course form a three-sided plateau, which lies in the center of the district and is known as the Enz-Nagold-Platte.

The sources of Nagold and Enz are close to each other, on the southwest edge of the district area. The course of the Enz between Enzklösterle and Pforzheim marks the north-western edge of the Enz-Nagold-Platte. To the west of it extends to the Black Forest ridge, the highest part of the district, which extends in the northwest over the ridge to the upper reaches of the Alb , where the town of Bad Herrenalb is located.

The course of the Nagold forms the southern and eastern edge of the Enz-Nagold-Platte, because it initially runs eastwards from the Black Forest ridge, then turns north in the town of Nagold on the south-eastern edge of the circle, flows through Calw and finally flows into Pforzheim, just north of the district area, in the Enz. The areas east and some south of the Nagold belong to the Heckengäu and Schlehengäu .

Neighboring areas

The district of Calw borders in a clockwise direction in the northwest on the districts of Karlsruhe and Enzkreis , the urban district of Pforzheim and the districts of Böblingen , Tübingen , Freudenstadt and Rastatt .

The district of Calw goes back to the Counts of Calw , who had their headquarters in Sindelfingen and founded Calw Castle around 1050 , which became the nucleus of today's district town. After their extinction in the 13th century, the area of ​​today's district was split up into the possessions of the Guelphs , the Counts of Württemberg and the Counts of Tübingen . It was only reunited in the hands of Württemberg as a result of the Reichsdeputation Hauptschluss.

19th and 20th centuries

Letter seal of the Württemberg Oberamt Calw

At the beginning of the 19th century, the Württembergers formed the Oberämter Altensteig, Calw , Liebenzell, Nagold , Neuenbürg , Wildbad and Wildberg, the Amt Zavelstein and the Klosterämter Herrenalb and Hirsau. However, just one year after the elevation of Württemberg to a kingdom in 1807, some offices were revoked. Hirsau, Liebenzell and Zavelstein were combined with Calw, Wildbad with Neuenbürg and Wildberg with Nagold. In 1808 Herrenalb was also united with Neuenbürg. In 1810 the remaining offices of Calw, Nagold and Neuenbürg belonged to the Black Forest bailiff and from 1818 to the Black Forest district . The boundaries of the three higher offices have changed several times in the course of history. In 1924 the Black Forest district was dissolved and in 1934 the three main offices were renamed as districts. In 1938 the districts of Neuenbürg and Nagold were merged with the district of Calw except for six communities. After the Second World War, the district of Calw became part of the new federal state of Württemberg-Hohenzollern and after the reorganization of the federal states in 1952, it became part of Baden-Württemberg in the southwest . After that he belonged to the administrative district of Südwürttemberg-Hohenzollern .

During the district reform , the area of ​​the district of Calw was changed again on January 1, 1973: Twelve communities were transferred to the newly formed Enzkreis , the community of ceilingpfronn came to the district of Böblingen , Loffenau moved to the district of Rastatt , but he was able to the municipality of Fünfbronn of the district Freudenstadt and the community of Hochdorf from the dissolved Horb district .

On September 1, 1971, the community of Dachtel was assigned to the district of Böblingen. The communities of Gündringen, Schietingen and Vollmaringen were taken over from the district of Horb on December 1, 1971 and incorporated into the city of Nagold on the same day .

On March 30, 1972, the Niebelsbach community moved to the Pforzheim district . To overcome the division of Moosbronn on April 1, 1972, its Württemberg portion was reclassified from the Bernbach community to the town of Gaggenau (Rastatt district).

On October 1, 1974, the municipality of Garrweiler from the Freudenstadt district was added. It was incorporated into the city of Altensteig .

After the municipal reform has been completed, the district of Calw still comprises 25 municipalities, including ten towns and of these, in turn, two large district towns ( Calw and Nagold ). The largest city is Calw, the smallest municipality is Enzklösterle . The District History Association of Calw eV is dedicated to the local and local history in the old district of Calw, i.e. in the areas that belonged to the district of Calw before the district reform.

coat of arms

The coat of arms of the district of Calw shows a standing, blue crowned and blue-tongued red lion in gold on a blue three-mountain, from which a silver spring gushes. The coat of arms was awarded again on July 11, 1961 and after the district reform on October 12, 1973.

The lion on the Dreiberg was the heraldic animal of the Counts of Calw, who ruled today's district for a long time. The coat of arms is similar to that of the city of Calw, but the district coat of arms still contains the source, which is supposed to reflect the many health resorts in the district.

The health resort Bad Herrenalb received a connection with Karlsruhe through the Alb valley in 1898 by the West German Railway Company . This Albtalbahn was meter gauge until 1960, but electrified from 1911. It is the core of today's network of the Karlsruhe Stadtbahn , which leads to several districts.

Municipalities before the district reform

Before the district reform on January 1, 1973 and the community reform , the (old) district of Calw had a total of 104 communities since 1938 , including twelve towns .

On March 7, 1968, the state parliament of Baden-Württemberg set the course for a community reform . With the law to strengthen the administrative power of smaller municipalities , it was possible for smaller municipalities to voluntarily unite to form larger municipalities. The beginning in the old district of Calw was made on January 1, 1971 by several communities that united with their neighboring communities, including some with the city of Bad Liebenzell . In the period that followed, the number of communities steadily decreased. The district area also changed in three cases. On September 1, 1971, the municipality of Dachtel merged with the municipality of Aidlingen and thus became part of the Böblingen district . On March 30, 1972, the Niebelsbach community was merged with other communities to form the new Keltern community and thus became part of the Pforzheim district . On April 1, 1972, the part of the village Moosbronn belonging to Bernbach was reclassified to Gaggenau and thus became part of the Rastatt district .

The remaining communities in the old district of Calw merged on January 1, 1973 in the new district of Calw, which was smaller in area than the old one. The old district of Calw last covered an area of ​​882 km² and had a total of 144,168 inhabitants at the 1970 census .

The table shows the population development of the old district of Calw up to 1970. All population figures are census results.
