The picturesque town comes alive with festivities such as the Swabian-Alemannic Carnival and the Da-Bach-na-Fahrt raft race, to mention a couple. Suffice it to say, the cultural scene here is so well-known for its vibrancy that thousands travel to Schramberg to participate in the bonhomie all year long.
