Until the 18th century

The area between the Stromberg and the Heuchelberg has been populated for around 5000 to 6000 years. The oldest human settlement finds in the area of ​​today's city of Brackenheim date from the Neolithic Age , from which about 30 settlement sites in the city area are proven. A settlement of the urban area extending along and north of the Zaber is also documented from the following epochs, which was traversed by numerous prehistoric paths that had an important junction in and around today's Meimsheim district .

At the time of the Romans, Brackenheim was in the hinterland of the Neckar-Odenwald-Limes or Upper German-Raetian Limes . At that time there were numerous Roman manors in the fertile Zabergäu . The most important finds from Roman times in today's urban area were recovered from the Martinskirche in Meimsheim and in Hausen an der Zaber . From the following time of the Alamanni there are only a few and sometimes controversial finds from Brackenheim. The intensive settlement of today's urban area and the founding of today's districts then took place during the Frankish conquest from the 6th century. The Meimsheim district was mentioned for the first time in 788 in the Lorsch Codex , followed in 793/94 by Botenheim and Frauenzimmern or Dürrenzimmern .

A Zeisolf von Brackenheim was mentioned in the 12th century in the Hirsauer Codex on the occasion of a donation of goods in Botenheim and Meimsheim. The place Brackenheim is mentioned for the first time in a document by Erkinger von Magenheim from October 6, 1246. The Lords of Magenheim are a verifiable aristocratic family since 1147 at the latest with extensive possessions in Kraichgau and Zabergäu and with ties to the Diocese of Mainz , Diocese of Speyer , Diocese of Worms , the Hohenstaufen and also to King Rudolf I of Habsburg. The expansion of the town of Brackenheim to a town goes back to the Magenheimers, who may already have had a seat in an old castle proven by the name of the castle . The existing site was expanded as planned and walled in almost rectangular. In addition, a new mansion was built within the city, to which today's castle goes back. The oldest mention of it as an oppidum (city) dates back to 1279, and Rudolf I formally granted city rights on May 29, 1280. With the first mention of the market gate in the direction of Neipperg in 1301, the completion of the walling of the city is considered proven. Until the early 20th century, the city barely grew beyond this medieval enclosure.

By dividing the estate, the Magenheimer property was divided into different parts. To 1280 received it Erkinger III. from Magenheim the city of Brackenheim with accessories. After 1287, his sons divided the property again. Half of Brackenheim came through further inheritance to Count Burkhard von Hohenberg, who sold his property in Brackenheim, Magenheim and Blankenhorn Castle to Count Eberhard I of Württemberg in 1321 . His son Ulrich III. sold the property in Brackenheim to Archbishop Matthias von Mainz in 1327, but Württemberg regained possession of that half of the city around 1356. In fact, Württemberg seems to have ruled the entire city from that time on, as Eberhard II acquired the claim to the remaining half of the city for a very small sum from four Magenheim heirs on December 27, 1367.

Brackenheim became the official city of Württemberg. In addition to the city, the Brackenheim office originally included the towns of Haberschlacht , Meimsheim , Nordheim , Hausen an der Zaber , Dürrenzimmern and the Württemberg half of Cleebronn . The communities of Kleingartach , Niederhofen and Stetten am Heuchelberg were added later.

The Brackenheim Castle , together with the city and the Office Brackenheim different widows württembergischer regent as widow seat prescribed, it also served as a residence of the Württemberg Upper Vogts. In the 17th and 18th centuries, however, none of the widows who received the castle actually lived in Brackenheim.

During the Thirty Years' War , Brackenheim had to endure multiple looting and the effects of troops moving through and billeting. The greatest need had just been overcome when, from 1688 onwards, with the outbreak of the Palatinate War of Succession , military operations around Brackenheim took place again. In the midst of this time of need with looting and the devastation of fields, a major fire occurred in May 1691, in which 112 buildings in Brackenheim were destroyed. The fact that the residents of the surrounding districts had stored their furniture and their fruit supplies in the supposedly safer city, dramatically increased the extent of the disaster. There was famine and poverty, which were exacerbated by acts of war and bad harvests in the years that followed.

After the city fire of 1691, large parts of the north and east of the city were destroyed, with reconstruction continuing well into the 18th century. A redesign of the market square was necessary. The old town hall from 1424 was also burned down, so that the council moved into the former bathhouse until the new town hall was completed on the site of the old one in 1776.

19th to 21st century

With the establishment of the Kingdom of Württemberg in 1806, Brackenheim remained the administrative seat of the Oberamt of the same name (from 1934 Brackenheim district). During the administrative reform in Württemberg during the Nazi era , Brackenheim came to the Heilbronn district in 1938. In 1933 there were 1633 inhabitants, in 1939 there were 1671.

In the last days of World War II , Brackenheim was the target of several bombs on April 2 and 5, 1945, covering numerous roofs and severely damaging some buildings, especially barns. Although anti-tank barriers were erected and two bridges were blown up on April 5 and 6, French troops entered Brackenheim on the afternoon of April 6, 1945 without a fight, after which there were occasional looting and rape. The war damage had largely been repaired in late 1945. In 1946, around 550 displaced persons, mostly from the Sudetenland, were accepted into Brackenheim.

In 1945 the place became part of the American zone of occupation and thus belonged to the newly founded state of Württemberg-Baden , which was incorporated into the current state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952.

As part of the Baden-Württemberg community reform, the neighboring communities of Botenheim, Dürrenzimmern, Haberschlacht, Hausen an der Zaber, Meimsheim, Neipperg and Stockheim were incorporated into Brackenheim from 1971 to 1974. The lively designation of building areas let the districts grow together and led to a significant increase in population, from 1995 to 2004 alone by almost 2,700 inhabitants.

Denomination statistics

According to the 2011 census , 53.5% of the population in 2011 were predominantly Protestant , 18.6% Roman Catholic and 27.9% were non-denominational , belonged to another religious community or did not provide any information. As of June 30, 2019, of the 16,363 inhabitants, 2,731 (16.7%) are Roman Catholic, 7,398 (45.2%) Protestant and 6,234 (38.1%) are non-denominational or belong to another religious community. The number of Protestants and Catholics has therefore decreased in the observed period.


Brackenheim has been predominantly evangelical since the Reformation. The city is the seat of the Brackenheim church district of the Evangelical Church in Württemberg . In Brackenheim, Botenheim, Dürrenzimmern, Hausen, Meimsheim and Neipperg there are Protestant parishes of their own; Haberschlacht and Stockheim share a common parish. Brackenheim is also the seat of the Protestant district youth organization Brackenheim, which is part of the Protestant youth organization in Württemberg and is responsible for youth work in the parishes of the church district Brackenheim.

In Stockheim there is the Catholic parish of St. Ulrich, which also includes Haberschlacht and the Eppinger district of Kleingartach. Neipperg belongs to the parish of St. Martinus in Schwaigern. The Catholic Christ the King Congregation in Brackenheim was essentially created by the influx of Catholic expellees after the Second World War and includes the rest of the Brackenheim districts.

An Evangelical Free Church congregation (Baptists) and Jehovah's Witnesses are also represented in Brackenheim, the Methodist Church in Botenheim and the New Apostolic Church in Meimsheim .


Local council and local councils

After the municipal council election on May 26, 2019, the municipal council has 22 seats due to the abolition of the fake local election. Another member of the council and its chairman is the mayor.

List 21 21.0% + 7.0 6th + 2
total 100% 30th
Turnout: 49.5% (- 2.4)

After the local government reform in 1974 there were local councils and honorary local councilors in some of the Brackenheim districts , but not in others. In order to achieve an equal treatment of all districts as far as possible, the Brackenheim municipal council asked the local councils in a resolution of January 29, 2004 to dissolve by 2008 in favor of so-called discussion groups , as they already existed in the other suburbs. The last local council in Haberschlacht dissolved in 2009.

There are now so-called discussion groups in all districts and in the core city. These discussion groups, which bring together "all decision-makers on site [...] such as the local councils from the district, representatives of the churches and associations, the local agenda, the schools, the volunteer fire brigade or the partnership committee", should serve to "make important decisions and To discuss matters of the respective districts and to exchange ideas. "

On July 3, 2014, the majority of the members of the municipal council decided to revise the main statute of the city of Brackenheim and thus to repeal the bogus local election from the next election of the municipal council in Brackenheim in 2019. The future number of seats for the members of the municipal council will be set at 22 from 2019.

badges and flags

Brackenheim coat of arms

The blazon of the Brackenheim coat of arms reads: In red a standing silver bracke with a black collar and a silver guide ring. The city colors are white and red.

Brackenheim's oldest surviving seal from 1301 already shows the standing Bracken as a talking coat of arms . The dog has been used in various positions over the centuries - standing, striding, jumping, etc. - and since the 16th century with various additions such as a collar or chain. The colors have always remained the same and probably go back to the Lords of Magenheim , who temporarily owned Brackenheim as a Mainz fief . In 1953, the Brackenheim municipal council established the coat of arms in its current form based on the oldest city seal.

Town twinning

As early as 1962, today's Neipperg district entered into a partnership with the French municipality of Marsan in Gascogne ( Département Gers ).

  • The Brackenheim castle in the south of the old town was from 1556 to 1559 as a city palace instead of the old castle of the Lords of gastric home under Duke Christoph von Württemberg built by architect Martin Berwart. The three-winged building served as a widow's residence in Württemberg. After a fire in 1670, the west wing and the north transverse wing were rebuilt from 1677 to 1685 by master builder Weiss, which essentially gave the castle its present shape. Later the building was the apartment of the governor and the official residence. Currently only the district court is housed in the castle.

  • The Oberamts building housed the Oberamt Brackenheim until 1800. After that it was used as a residential and commercial building, for a long time as a bakery.
  • The old school near the town church was built in 1608/10 and was a Latin school until 1804, then a school building until 1896. The ornate half-timbered house, which is connected to the former predicature , is now an office building.
