Schwarzwald-Baar Overview

Schwarzwald-Baar is a district (Kreis) in the south of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from north clockwise) Ortenaukreis, Rottweil (Rottweil vacation rentals | Rottweil travel guide), Tuttlingen (Tuttlingen vacation rentals | Tuttlingen travel guide), Constance, the Swiss canton of Schaffhausen, and the districts Waldshut, Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald and Emmendingen (Emmendingen vacation rentals | Emmendingen travel guide).

The district got its name from the two predominant landscapes in the district. The Black Forest (Schwarzwald), and the Baar, the foothills between the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb. Both the River Danube and the Neckar River have their origins in the Schwarzwald and Baar district. The coat of arms is modeled after the two coat of arms of the cities Villingen and Schwenningen (Schwenningen vacation rentals | Schwenningen travel guide). Villingen had a horizontally divided blue-and-white arms, while Schwenningen had a vertically divided blue-and-white arms. Combining both divisions give the four fields. The eagle in the top-left quarter is taken from the coat of arms of the city Villingen, and derives from the Zähringen family who ruled that city in the 13th century.
