Today, the Calw scaffold is a sight only encountered by people out walking – an execution place which has long been out of use. In 1818, the last person was sentenced to death and executed at this site, accompanied by a crowd of onlookers.
The scaffold can be reached by foot as follows: from the forest car park “Zavelsteiner Sträßle“ in the town district of Wimberg walk straight into the woods, after approx. 100 m turn left in the direction of Calw following the hiking trail marked with a black-red diamond. After approx. 500 m, on your right, you will reach a round stage made of stone with a wide staircase – the scaffold.
