Nagold (Baden-Wurttemberg)

Germany or the Federal Republic of Germany is located in Central Europe with Berlin as its capital city. The German language was once the lingua franca of central, eastern and northern Europe. It is a member state of the United Nations, NATO, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G8, Group of 8, and the G4, Group of 4, nations, and is a founding member of the European Union. It is the European Union's most populous and most economically powerful member state. Germany is one of the largest European economies and the third largest economy in the world in real terms.
Nagold is a town in southern Germany bordering the Northern Black Forest. It is located in the Landkreis or district Calw, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany and has about 22,900 inhabitants. Nagold is known for its castle ruin Hohen Nagold and its viaduct.
Nagold has a beautiful city center where half-timbered houses and modern architecture meet each other. The following small villages belong to the district of Nagold, Emmingen, Gundringen, Hochdorf, Iselshausen, Mindersbach, Pfrondorf, Schietingen and Vollmaringen. Nagold is also the name of an approximately 60 mile long river that has its source in the Northern Black Forest and meets the river Enz in Pforzheim.
The Nagold Basin was probably occupied as long as the early Stone Age from 2,000 to 3,000 B.C., Before Christ. With its fertile soil and mild middle mountain climate, the basin afforded ideal possibilities for settlement. Traces of early human occupation from the Halstatt Period from 700 B.C. to 450 B.C. have been found in the Bachle area.
Home construction, attraction of industry, and improvement of infrastructure have been difficult problems for Nagold. A city policy of construction combined with improvement of the old city center is cornerstones of the city planning. In 1992, the city swimming park was renovated, and in 1996 a new cultural center was built near the city center.
Tourism in Germany has expanded since the end of World War II, and many tourists visit Germany to experience a sense of European history. The countryside exhibits a pastoral aura, while its cities exhibit both a modern and classical feel.
