Difference between Pipelines and Workflows?

I have to setup parameters for a job and therefor stumbled upon the “Pipelines”.
I have to enable them to use parameters, ok.
I’m using 2.1 already, so they’re enabled by default.
But I wonder: Why are pipelines actually? I understand the relation between Jobs and Workflows but have no idea how a Pipeline fits in there. Except for the fact that I have to enable them to use parameters.
Could someone shine some light on that topic?


CircleCI Pipelines are the top-level that contains your workflows and jobs – it can be thought of as the triggering event + the scope of the run.
