HistoryEdit

Enzklösterle was first mentioned in a document from 1323 as "Klösterlein ze der Entz". It became a possession of the County of Württemberg between the years 1323 and 1345. In 1599, the Duke of Württemberg established an managed forest in Enzklösterle, which would have a lasting impact on the region's economy. In 1826, Enzklösterle, which had been an estate of Wildberg, was made an independent municipality and was assigned to Oberamt Neuenbürg [de]. The village of Enztal was incorporated into Enzklösterle in 1935, forming the present boundaries of the municipality. Oberamt Neuenbürg was dissolved in 1938 and Enzklösterle was subsequently assigned to the district of Calw.[3]

GeographyEdit

The municipality (Gemeinde) of Enzklösterle is situated on the western edge of the district of Calw, along the border with the districts of Freudenstadt and Rastatt to the west. Enzklösterle is physically located in the valley of the Großen Enz, in the Northern Black Forest and Grinde regions. Elevation above sea level in the municipal area ranges from a high of 924 meters (3,031 ft) Normalnull (NN) at the top of the Hirschkopf to a low of 563 meters (1,847 ft) NN.[3]

The abandoned villages of Birkenäckerle, Boppelseehaus, Kaltbronn, and Zwickgabel are also located in the municipal area. Enzklösterle is in an mutually-beneficial municipal association [de] with the township of Bad Wildbad and the municipality of Höfen an der Enz.[3]

Coat of armsEdit

This coat of arms was issued on 25 May 1950 by the provisional post-WWII Württemberg-Hohenzollern government.[3]
