The Elztal Region

THE ELZTAL REGION is situated in the southern part of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest), close to Freiburg and to Strasbourg (in France). It is part of the Land (administrative region) of Baden-Württemberg and is also known as the Zweitälerland: this means 'area of the two valleys', the two valleys being the Elztal and Simonswäldertal.

Four communities in the Elztal region are twinned with Worthing:
