Carmen Würth’s 80th birthday Carmen Würth has been passionately committed to the social integration of people with disabilities for many years. The wife of entrepreneur Reinhold Würth never tires of standing up for disadvantaged people and offering them her support. Together with her husband Reinhold, she set up the Würth Foundation in 1987. Her latest project is the cultural center “Kulturhaus Würth”, along with its integrated library “Bibliothek Frau Holle”, which opened its doors in Künzelsau in May 2017. She has received countless prizes and awards for her commitment. Among other things, she has been awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany as well as the Order of Merit of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, and has been made an honorary citizen of the town of Künzelsau and the Technical University of Munich. The celebrations to mark her birthday not only included the official opening ceremony for the Carmen Würth Forum. A fragrant, purple flowering rose was specially bred for the occasion and has borne the name Carmen Würth ever since.
