Here you are very close to the Black Forest. Just a short distance and you are at 'Kreuzweg', the starting point for many beautiful hikes. Distance to town centre: approx. 3.5 km.
In Schweighof you already breathe the air of the Black Forest. The Guggmühle, the only preserved saw mill of formerly five mills in the village, is situated immediately at the entrance of the village. The remains of another mill are found at the end of the village where the trout farm Günther takes care that this Black Forest specialty is always fresh on the plate.
Schweighof has belonged to Badenweiler since 1975. The name of the settlement is derived from the Middle High German "sweige", which means alpine dairy or cattle yard. This already shows the agricultural character of this part of the village with its few, relatively widely distributed farms. In principle, this has not changed that much until today.
