About this picture

Böbingen is a municipality in the Südliche Weinstrasse district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the community of Edenkoben .


The community is located 9 km east of Edenkoben between the Palatinate Forest and the Rhine within the Rhine plain in the so-called Gäu .

The 20 km long Triefenbach flows north of the residential development from west to east . This rises west of Edenkoben in the Palatinate Forest and flows about 6 km below Böbingen from the right into the Kropsbach , a right tributary of the Speyerbach . The western forest enclave is bounded in the west by the Kohlbach .

Neighboring communities of Böbingens are the Neustadt districts of Duttweiler and Geinsheim clockwise in the north , then the local communities of Gommersheim , Freisbach , Freimersheim and Altdorf clockwise .


In the Lorsch Codex , Böbingen was first named as Bilingen in 772 . In the 15th century the village came to the Electoral Palatinate , within which it was subordinate to the Oberamt Germersheim as well as the city ​​and Fauthei Germersheim . In today's spelling, the place name appeared in 1586, after it had also been Bobingin, Bebingen and Bibingen before that .

After the population fell due to the Thirty Years War , many new citizens settled in Switzerland after 1650 .

From 1798 to 1814, when the Palatinate was part of the French Republic (until 1804) and then part of the Napoleonic Empire , Böbingen was incorporated into the canton of Edenkoben and was the seat of a Mairie , which was later moved to the neighboring Freimersheim. In 1815 it was added to Austria . Just one year later, the place, like the entire Palatinate, changed to the Kingdom of Bavaria . From 1818 to 1862 the community belonged to the Landau Landau commissioner ; from this the district office of Landau emerged.

From 1939 the place was part of the Landau district in the Palatinate . After the Second World War , Böbingen became part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate within the French occupation zone . During the first Rhineland-Palatinate administrative reform changed the community on June 7, 1969 in the newly created district Landau-Bad Bergzabern, in 1978 in South County Wine Trail is renamed . 1972 Böbingen was assigned to the also newly formed community of Edenkoben .

In 2001 the local congregation celebrated its 1225th anniversary.
