For visitors and tourists, Villingen is by far the most popular of the two linked towns with its historic sights and the location on the main Balck Forest rail route.
But Schwenningen is also linked to Villingen by rail and bus and is not much further away from the main sights in the region.

Villingen-Schwenningen is pretty much equidistant to all the airports in the region. The best options from the point of view of choice and onward transport are probably Stuttgart and Zurich.
Distance to Zurich Airport: 92km
Distance to Stuttgart Airport: 114km
Distance to Friedrichshafen (Bodensee) Airport: 114km
Distance to Baden Airport: 120km
Distance to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg: 134km
The smaller airports at Friedrichshafen and Baden-Baden offer a more limited choice including some budget airlines, although the choice of carriers and destinations at the two closer airports is likely to be much greater.
It is also a stop on the regional service between Titisee-Neustadt, Donaueschingen and Rottweil, while the Ringzug rail service run by the Hohenzollerische Landesbahn links both Villingen and Schwenningen stations to Donaueschingen, Rottweil and Bräunlingen.
Villingen railway station is located a short walk outside the old town walls to the east, while Schwenningen train station is to the south of the main central square.
The two communities both lie to the west of the A81 motorway between Stuttgart and Lake Constance. There are also road links into the Black Forest centres of Triberg, Donaueschingen and Titisee.
