About this picture

The district of Waldshut ( Alemannic : Waldshuet ) is one of the four southern districts of Baden-Württemberg on the border with Switzerland . It belongs to the Hochrhein-Bodensee region in the Freiburg administrative region . The administrative seat is the district office in Waldshut-Tiengen .

The district of Waldshut was formed in the course of the district reform of Baden-Württemberg in 1973 on January 1, 1973 from the 'old' district of Waldshut and the district of Säckingen.



The district of Waldshut in the Hochrhein region comprises parts of the southern Black Forest including the Hotzenwald , the lower and middle Wutach Valley and the west of the Klettgau .

In the south, the Rhine forms the district boundary, its largest tributaries (counting down the Rhine) are the Wutach , the Schlucht , the Schwarza and the Alb .


The district comprises 549 places ( towns , villages , hamlets , farms and residential areas ).

Neighboring areas

The district borders in a clockwise direction in the west, beginning with the districts of Lörrach , Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald and Schwarzwald-Baar-Kreis . In the east it borders on the Swiss canton of Schaffhausen , in the southeast on the canton of Zurich and in the south on the canton of Aargau .

Division of space

According to data from the State Statistical Office , as of 2015.


Former territories

Until 1803 the largest part of today's district, the Hotzenwald or the county of Hauenstein , belonged to Upper Austria , together with the neighboring Frickgau, the oldest possessions of the Habsburgs . The forest bailiff , based in the forest bailiff's office, had the administrative tasks . In addition, there was the Landgraviate of Klettgau, which was initially largely part of the Habsburg family, then belonged to the Counts of Sulz and later to the Prince of Schwarzenberg , with the administration in Tiengen Castle and Jestetten Castle , ultimately from Krumau . The Landgraviate of Stühlingen , which last belonged to the Prince of Fürstenberg , was administered from Stühlingen Castle , later from Donaueschingen Castle . The county of Bonndorf and the dominion of Blumegg were directly part of the empire, but were subordinate to the St. Blasien monastery, while the monastery itself belonged to Upper Austria. On the Rhine there was the Obervogtei Rötteln around Hohentengen , which belonged to the Hochstift Konstanz . The Rheinau monastery and the Säckingen monastery also had larger possessions . None of the former monasteries exist anymore, the Marienburg monastery (1862) in Ofteringen and the Stühlingen Capuchin monastery (1927, forerunner 1743 to 1802) are newly founded.

Modern times

Between 1803 and 1806 the entire current district area came to Baden , in 1945 to southern Baden and with this in 1952 to the state of Baden-Württemberg . The offices of Waldshut, Bettmaringen , Bonndorf, Klein-Laufenburg, Jestetten, Nollingen , St. Blasien, Säckingen, Stühlingen, Schopfheim, Tiengen and Wehr were created there in today's district area (1809) . The western offices belonged to the Wiesenkreis based in Lörrach, since 1815 to the Dreisamkreis based in Freiburg and since 1832 to the Upper Rhine District . From 1813, the eastern offices were assigned to the Seekreis based in Constance. The division of office changed often in the sequence. The Wehr office was dissolved in 1813, Laufenburg and Tiengen in 1819, Stühlingen and Jestetten in 1856. St. Blasien lost its official status in 1924, Schopfheim in 1936. In what is now the district in 1936, only the offices of Neustadt in the Black Forest, Säckingen and Waldshut remained. In 1939 the Baden administrative order was transferred to the Reich-wide system of counties and administrative districts. Thus the districts of Säckingen , Waldshut and Neustadt emerged from the three remaining offices . The latter changed its name in 1956 to the Upper Black Forest district . Initially, the district of Waldshut belonged to the administrative district of South Baden .

After the end of the war in 1945, the Waldshut district became part of the French occupation zone .

During the district reform in 1973 , the new district of Waldshut was created in the new administrative district of Freiburg . At that time the old districts of Säckingen and Hochschwarzwald were dissolved and parts of them were assigned to the district of Waldshut. The other parts of both old districts were divided into the districts of Lörrach and Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald .

Schlageten from the district of Säckingen was added on January 1, 1971. On May 1, 1972, Mettenberg was temporarily assigned to the Upper Black Forest district.

On September 1, 1973, Schönenbach was reclassified to the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district. Grünwald followed on March 18, 1975 (reclassification from Bonndorf in the Black Forest to Lenzkirch ).

Since the completion of the community reform , the district of Waldshut has comprised 32 communities, including 7 towns and of these, in turn, a large district town , Waldshut-Tiengen, which is also the largest town in the district. The smallest municipality is Ibach . Since many small communities with little industry and commerce belong to the Waldshut district, it is considered one of the poorer districts in Baden-Württemberg.

The senior officials or district administrators of the district office or district of Waldshut since 1807:

coat of arms

Divided by a silver sloping bar: at the top in green a sloping golden abbot growing from the rear edge of the shield; below in blue a golden turbine wheel. The coat of arms was awarded on December 11, 1973 by the Ministry of the Interior of Baden-Württemberg .

The turbine wheel represents the important role that electrical energy plays in the economic development of the Upper Rhine. The wave bar symbolizes the rivers Rhine , Wehra , Murg , Alb , Schwarza , Schlücht , Steina and Wutach , which run through the district. The abbot refers to the monastic foundations in the district.

The former district of Waldshut had a different coat of arms before the district reform. In a shield split by silver and red, it showed a green fir tree with a golden trunk on a green three-mountain in front, and a silver turbine wheel over a silver wave beam in the back. This coat of arms was awarded to the district of Waldshut on November 25, 1957 by the Ministry of the Interior of Baden-Württemberg. The coat of arms should indicate the main economic branches in the district, the wealth of forests and industry. With the new formation of the district during the district reform, it lost its validity.


On May 30, 2011, a third and, for the time being, last project section was completed in which visual artists from the region - including Cordula Güdemann and Kolibri - designed flags for a total of 32 points at the Waldshut district border .

Economy and Infrastructure

The district is largely characterized by medium-sized companies. 85% of the employees work in companies with fewer than 100 employees.

In the service sector, health, veterinary and social services, trade, tourism, logistics and energy supply dominate. The main focus in the manufacturing industry is metalworking, machine and vehicle construction, the chemical and textile industry as well as wood and plastics processing. With around 2,000 companies and 20,000 employees, the trade represents a strong pillar of the economy. Tourism and health care are important economic factors, especially in the Black Forest and the Upper Rhine. With 433,446 guest arrivals (2010) and 1,974 million overnight stays, the district of Waldshut is one of the most important tourist destinations in Baden-Württemberg.

STo AG has developed into the top-selling company in the district (2012).

The Volksbank Rhein-Wehra is in the district and in the district of Lörrach established.

Around 12,600 employees (as of 2011) are cross-border commuters in Switzerland, that is just under 18% of the workforce (2009: 70,400). Cross-border commuters have been taken into account when calculating the unemployment rate since 2009. The unemployment rate was 2.7% in 2015.

According to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, 14,259 (10,366 men, 3893 women) worked as cross-border commuters in Switzerland in the Waldshut district in the first quarter. […] The Waldshut district has 78,100 employees. The population: Waldshut 170,198 (figures for 2019).

In the future atlas 2016, the district of Waldshut was ranked 183 out of 402 districts, municipal associations and independent cities in Germany and is therefore one of the regions with a "balanced risk-opportunity mix" for the future. In the 2019 edition, it was ranked 174th out of 401.



The Hochrheinbahn, built by the Baden State Railway , runs along the Upper Rhine as the main line from the Badischer Bahnhof in Basel to Schaffhausen or Singen (Hohentwiel) . This reached Waldshut in 1856, from where a connecting line over the Rhine to the Swiss Koblenz AG was built in 1859 , and Schaffhausen in 1863.

Since this important line runs through the national territory of neutral Switzerland, the Wutach Valley Railway, opened in 1875/76 from Lauchringen via Stühlingen to Weizen, was extended in 1890 with elaborate engineering structures as a strategic route via Zollhaus-Blumberg into the Danube Valley. In the same year, the Bad Säckingen - Schopfheim line was also built for military reasons .

In 1907 the climatic health resort of Bonndorf was connected to the Höllentalbahn via the Kappel Gutachbrücke station .

The main line Schaffhausen - Zurich , which was put into operation by the Swiss Northeast Railway in 1897, is a specialty . Today it belongs to the Swiss Federal Railways and has three stations in the district.

This includes the following three municipalities:

Altenburg-Rheinau station has not been served since the end of 2011.

Of the 115 kilometers of rail network, 31 kilometers have been closed for regular passenger traffic:

  • 1955: Lausheim-Blumegg-Grimmelshofen (-Zollhaus-Blumberg) (Wutachtalbahn, nine kilometers)
  • 1966: (Kappel Gutachbrücke–) Gündelwangen – Bonndorf (seven kilometers)
  • 1971: Bad Säckingen – Wehr (–Schopfheim) (Wehratalbahn, twelve kilometers) and Weizen – Lausheim-Blumegg (Wutachtalbahn, three kilometers)


By the district lead portions of the under construction A 98 and a plurality of highways, including the B 34 as part of the European route 54 of Lörrach - Waldshut-Tiengen - singing of Swiss area in Schaffhausen to the A4 and the access road to the A 81 serving B 314 from Waldshut-Tiengen- Blumberg - singing about the German area of ​​the Randen . The B 500 from Schluchsee - Höchenschwand - Waldshut is also important. Furthermore, several state and district roads open up the district.


In the district of Waldshut there is, in addition to the Bohlhof glider airfield, a small airfield, the Rickenbach-Hütten glider airfield . The Reiselfingen glider airfield is close to the district boundary. The Schmerlat airfield is also outside the district near Neunkirch in Switzerland .

Border with Switzerland

The border with Switzerland is an essential part of the structure of the Waldshut district, it has a long history that connects and divides. During the First World War and the Second World War, it was particularly secured by the occupation of the border . Switzerland's border fortifications are still visible today .

Even after Switzerland has joined the Schengen Agreement , the state border between Switzerland and Germany will be monitored. The movement of goods between the Swiss customs area and the EU customs area is controlled . This is done by the Swiss Border Guard and the Federal Customs Administration.

The border crossing is regulated at the border crossings mostly via the Rhine bridges and through the customs clearance systems. The customs crossings between Waldshut-Tiengen - Koblenz, Bad Säckingen - Stein, Laufenburg (Baden) - Laufenburg (Switzerland), Hochrheinbrücke , Rheinheim - Bad Zurzach, Hohentengen am Hochrhein - Kaiserstuhl, Erzingen - Trasadingen, Jestetten - Neuhausen are relevant for the Waldshut district , Lottstetten - Rafz and Stühlingen - Schleitheim.

Municipalities before the district reform

Waldshut district before the district reform

Before the district reform on January 1, 1973 or before the community reform, the (old) district of Waldshut had a total of 81 communities since 1936 , including the three cities of Stühlingen, Tiengen (Upper Rhine) (from September 3, 1964 Tiengen / Hochrhein ) and Waldshut.

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 Waldshut was made by the municipality of Immeneich, which merged on July 1, 1971 with the municipality of Schlageten, district of Säckingen, to form the new municipality of Albtal, which thus belonged entirely to the district of Waldshut, which expanded accordingly. In the period that followed, the number of municipalities steadily decreased until the district of Waldshut was finally dissolved in 1973 or merged into the enlarged district of Waldshut.

The largest municipality in the old district of Waldshut was the district town of Waldshut. The smallest community was Staufen.

The old district of Waldshut included last an area of 590 square kilometers, and had in the census in 1970 a total of 71,975 inhabitants.

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