Dear visitors and fellow citizens,

Oberbürgermeister Christof Florus
Christof Florus, Mayor

Gaggenau certainly cannot be summarized in few sentences. You have to experience Gaggenau! Our website offers you the chance to get some information about our continuously growing city with about 30 000 inhabitants at the entrance of the Murg Valley.

Here you will learn that thanks to different child care services, reconciliation between work and family life has already become reality in Gaggenau. Furthermore, you may also read about the fact that in Gaggenau we have more than 11 000 jobs and that it is here where the automobile industry has its roots. Gaggenau is also know for its unique Unimog-Museum, for its cabaret theatre klag and the Rotherma Spa with one of the biggest sauna areas within the Baden region.

Its convenient accessibility, its proximity to the cities of Baden-Baden and Karlsruhe as well as the Alsace region and the Black Forest National Park are all circumstances that make the location of our „city in the countryside“ extremely attractive.

As mayor, I'm especially proud of the fact that our city can count on a huge voluntary commitment. Almost 200 clubs offer a tremendous variety of sports and cultural activities around the city and its various neighborhoods. It is thanks to the effort of honorary citizens that many of the offers for children, teenagers, senior citizens and people with disability are rendered possible.

It is important to our local council, our administration department and myself, that our citizens and guests feel comfortable in Gaggenau. Therefore, we welcome your comments and suggestions as we continue to improve.

Discover Gaggenau – it's worth it! 


Christof Florus
