But historic traces can also be found in the town itself: lovingly restored half-timbered buildings, the church tower without a nave, the Celtic princely burial mound, and the Remigiuskirche are evidence of an exciting history. For active visitors, Nagold offers stunning hiking and cycling routes plus lots of other leisure options.
Wonderful municipal charm with a historic backdrop, all surrounded by a diverse natural landscape – that's the best way to describe Nagold in just a few words.
The town is located between the Northern Black Forest and the Heckengäu region and is the ideal starting point for outdoor adventures. An extensive network for walkers and cyclists, a high-rope course, the popular water park, and lots of other recreational facilities offer visitors a welcome break from their everyday lives. A particular highlight is the 7-Berge-Weg hiking trail, which was given the seal of approval in January 2019 by Germany's quality assurance scheme for walking routes "Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland". The 7-Berge-Weg is a challenging route that covers around 22 kilometres, taking hikers around Nagold's surrounding peaks. As you navigate the trail, fantastic views open up over the town and the distant mountain ranges.

Art and culture
Art and culture are on offer all year round here. The Alte Seminarturnhalle is a great insider tip for fans of the cabaret scene. The venue hosts regular cabaret, theatre and concert performances. The legendary Schlossberg is home to the imposing Hohennagold castle ruins. Events are held here several times a year. On these occasions, the castle is transformed into a fairytale paradise, a medieval setting, or a live stage in the heart of nature. The "Krautbühl", which is where the Celtic "Fürstengrab" burial site is located, provides further evidence of Nagold's long history. The Nagold town museum is in the Steinhaus, which is Nagold's oldest building. This offers an exciting way to explore the town's history.
