The city coat of arms of the former city of Göggingen

The area above the Wertachufer on the edge of the elevated terrace was already settled in the Bronze and Hallstatt Ages, and there are also settlement and grave finds from the Roman period from the 1st to the 4th century. Perhaps the aqueduct to supply the capital, Augusta Vindelicorum , ran here , and the route of a Roman road in the area of ​​the municipality has been proven . The Allgäustraße from Augsburg to Kempten and on to Bregenz and across the Alps to Lake Como ran for almost 4 km through the district, corresponding to today's Römerweg and Gögginger Straße; however, a milestone has only been found in the Inninger area just south of the municipal boundary. After the end of Roman settlement, the area was settled by the Alamanni . The place "Geginga" is mentioned for the first time in 969 in a document of St. Ulrich von Augsburg .

From 1804 to 1862 Göggingen was the seat of the regional court and district office. Through the orthopedic sanatorium of Friedrich Hessing , the Augsburg suburb became known nationwide as a health resort, the twisting and sewing thread factory Göggingen (now the Amann Group) was the largest employer until the 1970s. In 1954 Göggingen took over the sponsorship of the residents of the city and the district of Neudek in the Sudetenland who were disenfranchised, expropriated and displaced from their traditional homeland due to the Beneš decrees in 1945 . With the influx of the Sudeten Germans and the economic development, Göggingen grew to 16,000 inhabitants. In 1969 the market town of Göggingen was elevated to a town, but was incorporated into Augsburg on July 1, 1972 as part of the major Bavarian regional reform together with the neighboring towns of Haunstetten, Inningen and Bergheim.
