The Hausach-Schiltach railway line, also known as the Kinzigtalbahn, is a branch line in Baden-Württemberg. It runs in the Black Forest from Hausach to Schiltach and follows the course of the Kinzig river along its entire length.


The line was opened from Hausach to Wolfach by the Baden State Railways on 5 July 1878 and extended to Schiltach on 4 November 1886. At the same time, the Königlich Württembergische Staats-Eisenbahnen put the section from Schiltach to Freudenstadt Hbf into operation.


A Regio-Shuttle of the Ortenau-S-Bahn leaves the Halbmeil stop.

The passenger service formerly operated by Deutsche Bahn AG was taken over by Ortenau-S-Bahn GmbH (OSB) on 12 December 2004, which was merged with the parent company SWEG in 2014, which has operated the line ever since. Since then, through trains run every hour from Freudenstadt Hbf to Offenburg, with services between Hausach and Offenburg on the Badische Schwarzwaldbahn. Trains usually cross at Alpirsbach at the usual minute of symmetry just before the hour. Most trains continue via Offenburg to Bad Griesbach, the terminus of the Renchtalbahn

Air-conditioned Regio-Shuttles of SWEG are used. On “normal days”, about 2200 people use the train service on the Kinzigtalbahn.[3]
