Schwenningen is one half of the twin town Villingen-Schwenningen (total population approx. 88,000). Villingen and Schwenningen are an unlikely partnership. While Villingen is famous for its picturesque, historical town centre surrounded by the remains of a medieval town wall, Schwenningen is a town built on industry, famous for the clock factories which employed many thousands of local people and exported top quality products worldwide. Nowadays, the clock factories have all gone, but the proud tradition of precision engineering lives on. Schwenningen still boasts a strong industrial base of small and medium-sized enterprises located in modern industrial estates.
