Schiltach (4.000 ab.) è uno dei paesi-cartolina della Foresta Nera, circondato da colline, immerso nel verde e le sue strade brulicano di case a graticcio, le cosiddette Fachwerkhäuser, che gli conferiscono un'immagine romantica, d'altri tempi.
Il cuore della cittadina è la Marktplatz con il Municipio, edificato nel 1593 e caratterizzato da una bella facciata affrescata. Proseguendo in salita per i vicoli, si raggiunge la collina dove un tempo c'era un castello medievale. Oggi ne rimangono solo poche rovine ma è comunque un buon punto d'osservazione su Schiltach e i dintorni, tra foreste e vallate.
La chiesa principale, la Stadtkirche, è stata realizzata tra il 1839 e il 1843 in stile neogotico ed è tra le più grandi chiese luterane del Baden.
Il paese è toccato da due fiumi, il Kinzig e il Schiltach, che in passato costituivano la principale fonte di ricchezza degli abitanti in quanto erano usati per trasportare la legna sulle zattere.
buona visione a tutti.

Schiltach is a town in the district of Rottweil, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is situated in the eastern Black Forest, on the river Kinzig, 20 km south of Freudenstadt.Schiltach is 295 to 842 metres above sea level in the Middle Black Forest at the confluence of the rivers Schiltach and Kinzig, at the narrowest point of the Kinzigtal, between Offenburg, Freudenstadt and Schramberg.Neighbours are clockwise starting from the north-east: Schenkenzell, Wolfach, Lauterbach, Schramberg and Aichhalden. Wolfach is located in Ortenaukreis, the other municipalities in the Rottweil district.The town of Schiltach consists of the districts Schiltach and Lehengericht. The two districts are geographically identical to the previously independent municipalities of the same name.The district Schiltach includes the city of Schiltach, the villages Grumpenbächle and Vorderheubach and the settlements Auf der Staig, Blattenhäuserwiese, Grumpen and Kuhbacherhof (Vor Kuhbach). The ruined castle Willenburg is located in the district of Schiltach.The village Lehengericht has its own village council, a mayor as its chairman and its own village administration.]The district Lehengericht also consists of the settlements and hamlets Herdweg, Auf dem Hof, Schmelzle, Vor dem unteren Erdlinsbach, Vor Reichenbächle, Welschdorf, Höllgraben, Im Eulersbach, Im hinteren Erdlinsbach, Kienbronn, Rohrbach, Rubstock, Deisenbauernhof and several isolated farms.The road through the Kinzigtal was already in the Roman Empire a connection through the Black Forest out of the area of Strasbourg in the direction to Rottweil.Schiltach was founded in the 11th century as a parish for the surrounding farms, which are older than Schiltach. Around the town church, which today stands in the town district Vorstädtle and is evangelic, rose a settlement named after the river Schiltach. Probably in the middle of the 13th century the Dukes of Teck founded the town Schiltach to secure their territories. They build a town surrounding wall with gates and above the town a castle. A church was not built, because Schiltach already had one.The town should host transients and be a service center before the gradient of the road to Rottweil. Since about 1250 the castle and town took over the function of the Willenburg, which supplied the road before the founding of Schiltach.In 1371 Schiltach got in the hands of the Dukes of Urslingen. After ten years, the impoverished dukes of Ursling sold the castle and town to the Dukes of Württemberg. Until 1810 Württemberg held Schiltach except the years from 1519 to 1534. At first Schiltach was sieged by the Reichsstadt Rottweil and later (like the whole Duchy of Württemberg) by Further Austria.In the "Gränzvertrag zwischen dem Königreich Württemberg und dem Großherzogthum Baden"(border treaty between the Kingdom of Württemberg and Grand Duchy of Baden), which was negotiated in Paris on October 2, 1810, several areas of the Oberamt Hornberg, besides Schiltach also the town of Hornberg and the communities Gutach and Kirnbach, got to the Grand Duchy of Baden. Wolfach became the new Amststadt of Schiltach and later the county town. The surrounding farm became as Lehengericht, an own community.
In 1952, Schiltach went to the state Baden-Württemberg. The Landkreis Wolfach was dissolved in 1973, Schiltach was allocated to Rottweil. The community Lehengericht was reincorporated into the town of Schiltach in 1974. In 1979 the exclave Sulzbächle/Fischbach went to the town of Wolfach, in return the area Vor Heubach got to Schiltach.
