  Erdrichhof Bergach - The shoot Mountains of Gengenbach 

Gengenbach lies in the middle of the black forest foothills. Because of the location and mild climate, this region is for many centuries a preferred fruit and wine-growing district.  The vineyards and fruit plantations provide the landscape with almost a mediterranean character. The biggest portion of the whole area is certainly the forest. Prodominantly the mixed forest can be found here and in the higher areas also  the coniferous forest. The Kinzig River weaves through the middle of the city.  The Kinzig grows from the numerous brooks which flow through the entire area. Last but not least the names of the villages belonging to Gengenbach (Reichenbach, Schwaibach, and Bermersbach) account for the existence of numerous waterways.

To feel the cool air in the forests on a hot summer day, to see the colorful leaves blowing in the wind in autumn, and the first frost on the Kinzig river and dancing snowflakes. Come experience our diverse seasons.
