Promotion of Trade in Furtwangen

As from the mid-19th century, the state of Baden supported the training of skilled craftsmen for the purpose of making and marketing clocks. Furtwangen developed into the centre of trade promotion in the Black Forest. The first German clockmaker's school was founded here in 1850 along with a school for wood-carving in 1877.
