City structure

The city of Burladingen consists of the ten districts Burladingen, Gauselfingen , Hausen im Killertal , Hörschwag , Killer , Melchingen , Ringingen , Salmendingen , Starzeln and Stetten unter Holstein , which are spatially identical to the earlier communities of the same name. They are officially named in the form "Burladingen- ...".

The core city without the districts has 5531 inhabitants (as of December 31, 2019).

The municipal council is elected according to the system of the false suburbs , accordingly the municipality is divided into electoral districts , which are identical to the districts and are referred to as residential districts according to the Baden-Württemberg municipal code. With the exception of the district of Burladingen, localities within the meaning of the Baden-Württemberg municipal code have their own local councils and mayors as their chairmen. In the localities there are offices of the mayor's office known as local administrations.

The Burladingen district includes the city of Burladingen, the hamlet of Hermannsdorf and the Berg, Küche, Mühle and Ziegelhütte farms.

The Hausen district includes the village of Hausen and the houses Untere Mühle and Zementsmühle.

The Ringingen district includes the village of Ringingen and the Seemühle house.

To the district of Stetten the village of Stetten, the house Sägmühle and the Talhof.

The districts of Gauselfingen, Hörschwag, Killer, Melchingen, Salmendingen and Starzeln only include the villages of the same name.

In the urban area of ​​Burladingen there are several abandoned, no longer existing villages. In the Burladingen district, presumably below Burladingen, lies the Mayingen desert . The place was first mentioned in 772 as "Megingen" and was probably lost in the 15th century. In the Ringingen district, probably near Ringingen, was the place Buringen, the 772 ("in Burichinger marca"), 773 ("ecclisia ... in pace ... Burichingas"), 777 ("in Buringen") and before 799 ("Burchingen on der Schär ”) was mentioned. The "Horwe", mentioned in the 12th century as a noble residence, was in the Salmendingen district, but the location of this place is not certain. In the Starzeln district about 800 m west of the village was the Johanniterniederlassung Jungental, it was demolished in the 18th century. The town of Mertingen, mentioned in 772 as "Merioldingen", was in the Stetten district. A farm in Mertingen is still mentioned in the 15th century, which may have been a remnant of this place. Mertingen is now a corridor towards Melchingen.


Early days

The settlement of the district Burladingen began as early as the Bronze and Iron Ages . The Celts also roamed the Fehlatal in search of food.

Roman times

When the Romans moved the Danube border of the Raetia province to the north, a fort was built around 80 AD in what is now Kleineschle (see Fort Burladingen ). A Roman settlement ( vicus ) developed north of this camp . This civil settlement was abandoned around the year 260 during the Alemanni storms.

The settlement originally designated as an excavation protection area was converted into an industrial area by the Burladingen city administration after negotiations with the Tübingen regional council in spring 2012 . The vicus gave way to a western extension of the Kleineschle industrial park .

middle Ages

The Alemannic Burladingen may have originated in the 4th century east of this pre-existing Roman settlement. The place was first mentioned in a document as Burlaidingen in 772 in the Lorsch Codex on the occasion of a donation to the Lorsch Monastery .

Culture and sights


Kornbühl near Salmendingen

The Salmendingen district is on Hohenzollernstrasse . The three Burladingen districts of Melchingen , Stetten unter Holstein and Hörschwag are part of the holiday region “Im Tal der Lauchert”.


The Pleißne is a regional sociolect from the peddler in the Burladinger Killertal, which is one of the dialects of Rotwelschen . Until the motorization after the Second World War and the associated decline of the whip trade , it served the Burlading traders as a secret language. Pleißne, which is still practiced in the context of maintaining local traditions, has shaped the vocabulary of the local colloquial language.

After the parish rights were transferred to the newly built, larger St. Fidelis Church, St. George was used partly as a church and partly as a place for cultural events. On the occasion of a comprehensive renovation in 1982, an archaeological excavation took place inside the church, which revealed the founding and construction history of the church.
