The township of Bad Teinach-Zavelstein was formed on 1 January 1975 by the merging of Bad Teinach, Zavelstein, and the towns of Emberg, Rötenbach, Schmieh, and Sommenhardt.[2]

GeographyEdit

The township (Stadt) of Bad Teinach-Zavelstein is located at the center of the district of Calw, in Baden-Württemberg, one of the 16 States of the Federal Republic of Germany. Bad Teinach-Zavelstein's municipal area rests upon the plateau of the Enz and Nagold rivers, a landscape defined by severe river erosion, in the greater Black Forest region. Elevation above sea level in the municipal area ranges from a high of 747 meters (2,451 ft) Normalnull (NN) to a low of 337 meters (1,106 ft) NN.[2]

Coat of armsEdit

Bad Teinach-Zavelstein's municipal coat of arms is divided party per fess into an upper field of yellow with three black stag antlers [de], and a lower field of five yellow and red squares in a checkerboard pattern.

This coat of arms was awarded by the Calw district office to Bad Teinach-Zavelstein with an accompanying municipal flag on 13 February 1981.[2]
