The route from Stuttgart SW has no natural river to follow, and it wends its way along the east ridge of the mountains and forest that separate Württenburg from the Rhine, namely Baden. Heimsheim, Calw, and Pfalzgrafenweiler lead to Villingen on a branch of the upper Danube, the Brigach river. Konrad Storrer was burgomaster of Villingen in 1424. His sons, however, were apparently recorded as Stör and by the late 1500s they had a godfather Zorrer. Thus the Storre name changes locally, but we are all one family.
