Physical Geography in the area of Donaueschingen 'Germany'

Donaueschingen happens to be a German town situated in the Black Forest in the southwest of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, the Schwarzwald-BaarKreis. It stands close to the confluence of the two sources of the river Danube. By the way,the town's name appears to be an eponym.

Donaueschingen finds itself in a basin in low mountainous terrain. That’s located approximately 24 km west of Tuttlingen, 13 km south of Villingen-Schwenningen and also up to 30 km north of the Swiss town of Schaffhausen. In 2003, the population accounted for 21,300, thus making it the second largest town in the district of Schwarzwald-Baar. We should stress that the location of the town is quite favorable for its role of a regional rail hub.

Donaueschingen is situated in the Baar basin of the southern Black Forest at the confluence of the Brigach as well as Breg rivers. These are the two source tributaries of the Danube, from which Donaueschingen gets its name.

The municipal area extends continuously from the gneiss and granite of the Black Forest via the Triassic formations of the Schwarzwald-Baartalus to the Swabian Alb, and also exhibits all strata of the southern German cuesta country. Additionally, the heights drop from 1,020 metres in the Black Forest to approximately 660 metres on the Baar plateau surge to above the 900 metres mark once again at the Swabian Alb. A model of the extraordinary geological situation of the city as well as its surrounding region turns to be visible from the park opposite the train station.

The town is near Lake Titisee and also less than an hour's drive from France and Switzerland.

Esginga, that’s how Donaueschingen was first recorded in 889. In 1292, the modern form of its name was first attested. In 1283, Rudolph von Habsburg officially granted the principality of Baar as well as Donaueschingen to Heinrich von Fürstenberg. By the way, the right to brew beer was connected with this grant too. That’s the number one source of the Royal Fürstenberg Brewery.

In 1488, it was the Count of Fürstenberg-Baar to which possession was passed. From the 18th century it turned to be the residence of the Princes of Fürstenberg. Then, in 1806, Donaueschingen found itself under the rule of the Grand Duchy of Baden and in 1810, it was granted township. Unfortunately, in 1908, a large part of Donaueschingen was destroyed by fire. In addition to this, the town boasts a tradition as a military garrison. Indeed, since World War II the French military has maintained barracks in Donaueschingen, and, until the early 1990s, the US Air Force had a contingency hospital there.

3.75 stars. Had this been on time I would have given it at least a 4/5. The paper was good, and I only had to do a few things and add some extra information and sources.
