Map of Edenbergen with Gailenbach and the Gailenbacher Mühle

Edenbergen is a village and district of Gersthofen in the Swabian district of Augsburg in Bavaria . On November 15, 2019 , 315 residents lived in the village, which also includes the hamlet of Gailenbach and the Gailenbacher Mühle .

In addition to Gailenbach Castle , which was inhabited by families of the Augsburg patrician until the beginning of the 20th century , Edenbergen is known above all for the motorway service station of the same name on the A8 federal motorway .



Edenbergen lies at an altitude of up to 476  m above sea level. NN on a ridge that is bounded to the north by the valley of the Böglebach and to the south by the valley of the Gailenbach. The Böglebach is also called Nebelbach for obvious reasons, the Gailenbach is also known as the Schwefelbach after its source of the same name . Both streams flow through the village from west to east and flow into the Schmutter , which flows in a south-north direction on the eastern edge of the Edenberger district. On this river lies the Gailenbacher Mühle, which, like the hamlet of Gailenbach , located southeast of the closed development of the village, is part of the Edenbergen district.

The district of the village extends in a long, narrow strip from the valley of the Schmutter in the east to the west into the nature park " Augsburg - Western Forests ". Accordingly, around 217  hectares and thus almost half of the area of ​​the district, which comprises a total of 441.46 hectares, are forested. Direct neighboring communities are Rettenbergen in the north, Batzenhofen in the east, Täfertingen and Aystetten in the south and Adelsried in the west . Augsburg as the closest major city is about seven kilometers away as the crow flies . In the south, the A 8 motorway ( Munich - Augsburg - Stuttgart ) runs over a large stretch of the district .

Edenbergen is located in the cool, temperate climate zone at the transition area between the oceanic climate of Western Europe and the continental climate of Eastern Europe, which means that the weather is relatively changeable. The summer times are warm, but not excessively hot, in the winter months there are frost episodes, but excessive cold phases occur rarely. Larger amounts of precipitation can be recorded especially from June to August. Long periods of drought occur mainly in late summer and early autumn. The average annual temperature is around 8.4 degrees Celsius, and the annual rainfall is around 811 millimeters.

The valleys of the Böglebach in the north and the Gailenbach in the south are of particular local importance. This often leads to foggy days, especially in autumn . In addition, Edenbergen has been affected by flood situations several times in its history due to the location between the two mentioned brooks and the smear during storms, which led to an expansion of the corresponding protective structures, especially in recent years.

In the area of ​​the ridge, there is a good view of the Augsburg conurbation from the eastern edge of the village , which can be expanded significantly , especially due to the influence of the Alpine foehn : Through very warm and dry air currents that move from the south over the Alpine foothills and the Lechfeld from here the Allgäu and Bavarian Alps can also be seen.



Edenbergen is the smallest district of Gersthofen and only makes up about 1.5 percent of the city's total population. On July 1, 2009, a total of 304 people lived in the district with main and secondary residence, of which 148 residents were female and 156 male - this corresponds to a proportion of women of 48.7 percent. At that time, the population density was 69 inhabitants per square kilometer . After a temporary increase in the number of inhabitants to 337 on December 31, 2015, this fell again somewhat, so that Edenbergen had 315 inhabitants on November 15, 2015.

The majority of the residents of the village are Roman Catholic and belong to the parish of Sankt Martin in neighboring Batzenhofen, which is part of the Augsburg-Land deanery in the diocese of Augsburg . Edenbergen does not have its own church, but there are a total of three St. Mary's chapels in the area .

The Protestant citizens of Edenbergen belong to an Evangelical Lutheran diaspora community around the confessional church in Gersthofen, which, in addition to the other districts, also includes the communities of Gablingen , Heretsried and Langweid am Lech .


Eden Mountains

Edenbergen was probably founded in the 11th century from Batzenhofen on the cleared wasteland of the ridge between Böglebach and Gailenbach, which is reflected in the place name that exists today, which has been documented in this form since 1475. Until then, the village is reported in various variations as "Bergen", "Bergen by Patzenhouen" (today's Batzenhofen) and from 1405 as "Oedenberg in Patzenhouer parish". The name "Bergen" as a short form is still common today, especially among the older residents of the village.

The first written mentions of the place, which at that time belonged to the Urmark Hirblingen , can be found in the years 1126 and 1179 in documents of the Sankt Ulrich monastery in Augsburg . The original town center probably consisted of the property of the "front builder", the "best builder" and a courtyard in the area of ​​today's Unger property. A Leibdingbrief from 1382 shows for the first time ownership of the Sankt Stephan ladies' monastery from Augsburg in Edenbergen, whose historical settlement structure was preserved for a long time: in 1738 the village comprised 25 houses and a Söldhofstatt . Around this time - 1753 - two of the houses were owned by the cathedral chapter , one owned by the Sankt Ulrich monastery and the rest owned by the Sankt Stephan women's monastery, which also held the “low jurisdiction” over the place. At that time, the residents lived mainly from handicraft activities - in a regional study from this time it says about Edenbergen:

"[...] The agriculture, like the Wießwax, is very bad, the inhabitants feed on wood construction, and cotton spiders [...]"

- Johann Lambert Kolleffel : Swabian cities and villages around 1750. Geographical and topographical description of the Margraviate of Burgau. 1749-1753. Edited by Robert Pfaud (contributions to regional studies of Swabia), 1974.

As a result of the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss of 1803, the ecclesiastical institutions lost all secular property in the context of secularization in Edenbergen, as in all of Bavaria. In 1834 the village consisted of three farms, twenty Söldhofstätten and five empty houses. At that time there were around 170 citizens living in Edenbergen, but due to the rural exodus that began in the course of industrialization , their number temporarily decreased to less than 150 inhabitants.

The historical connection to the neighboring village of Batzenhofen can be found in church, school and state-administrative form. Edenbergen has been part of the local parish of Sankt Martin since its first tradition and was also assigned to the Batzenhofen school district after the introduction of compulsory schooling . Efforts to centralize in the second half of the 20th century not only resulted in the dissolution of the Batzenhofen school association and the allocation of Edenbergen to the Neusäß secondary school area , but also in 1966 the withdrawal of the district forest office , which had been based in Edenbergen for well over a hundred years . In 1911, Edenbergen received a central water supply through the establishment of the water source group on Loderberg, south of the municipality, and in 1920 it was connected to the electrical network. In the same year a comprehensive sewer system was set up, the roads were expanded and land consolidation was carried out.

In the First World War fell seventeen male villagers as soldiers on various fronts in Europe. To commemorate her, a war memorial was erected next to the local chapel in 1921, to which the names of eight men had to be added after the Second World War . The village itself, however, was not affected by any bombing or fighting during the Second World War. Nevertheless, various farmers in the village employed forced labor from affiliated or occupied areas during the war , including women and men from Italy , Poland , Slovakia and the Ukraine . On the afternoon of April 27, 1945, Edenbergen was handed over to the US Army without a fight . The villagers were gathered in a field west of the village and had to remain there under guard until evening before they were allowed to return to their homes, which had been searched by then.

In the post-war period, the change in agriculture began to affect the structure of the place, the number of active farms steadily decreased from then on: From then 14 farms are now only managed. The electricity introduced almost forty years earlier did not lead to complete street lighting in Edenbergen and Gailenbach until 1958, which was achieved by means of neon street lamps that were gradually installed from 1954 onwards . In 1960 the water supply of the village was improved by extending the main water line from the Loderberg group. A year later, the entire road network of the community was rebuilt and some roads that had not been paved until then were paved.

In 1978, in the course of the regional reform in Bavaria , Edenbergen lost its communal self-government, which was established in the Bavarian municipal dictates of 1818, 1834 and 1869. After the first attempts were made in the early 1970s to join the city of Gersthofen, but this was not possible due to the lack of a common border, various attempts were made in the following years to achieve the greatest possible degree of independence through mergers with surrounding communities to obtain. However, these attempts have all failed because of the disagreement between the places affected. On January 1, 1978, together with the neighboring communities of Batzenhofen and Rettenbergen, the voluntary connection to the city of Gersthofen was completed. Despite this incorporation, the village character of the place was preserved.

Due to its location on the Schmutter, Böglebach and Gailenbach rivers, Edenbergen has been repeatedly affected by floods in its history, including the Whitsun flood in 1999 in the last few decades . In 2005, in addition to some Edenberg households, the Gailenbacher Mühle in particular was heavily flooded, and the A 8 motorway next door had to be temporarily closed. Through various construction measures at the beginning of the 21st century, flood protection in Edenbergen was significantly improved. The complete redesign of Lindenbergstraße, the main street of Edenbergen, also contributed to this in 2007: your bridge over the Böglebach in the north of the village had been a stagnation point when the water level rises, the new building allows a significantly higher amount of water to pass and causes accordingly less congestion.


The hamlet of Gailenbach is likely to have come from about the same period of settlement as Edenbergen, but it was first mentioned in a document in 1283. In 1296 the name “Gamlunbach” can be found, but in 1382 it was “Gailenbach” after the stream of the same name that flows between Edenbergen and the hamlet. Initially a fiefdom of the Augsburg cathedral chapter, Gailenbach has been in the changing hands of Augsburg bourgeois families since 1325.

One of these patricians, Zacharias Geizkofler , who was Reichspfennigmeister of the Holy Roman Empire from 1589 to 1603 , built a small castle here around 1592/1602 . This remained - with a brief interruption in the 19th century when the Protestant Institute St. Anna from Augsburg inherited the property in 1838, but then sold it again - in the possession of Augsburg patrician families. Elements from the heraldic symbol of the family “those of Paris” were included in the Edenberg coat of arms.

In 1864, 17 people lived in Gailenbach, which at that time consisted of the castle, an inn and two farms. In 1927, the Augsburg monastery of the Franciscan Sisters of Maria Stern built an estate here , which was abandoned in the early 1980s. Today the hamlet consists of the castle estate, which is still inhabited, and a working farm.

Gailenbacher Mill

Flood at the Gailenbacher Mühle in 2005

The Gailenbacher Mühle , located directly on the Schmutter, is reported as early as 1296 , when a chunrat from Gamlunbach employed a grinding servant . In the following centuries, the mill was owned by various Augsburg patricians and gained notoriety in the middle of the 15th century when the miller Joseph Assum , who had been in charge since 1442, regularly robbed travelers who stayed in the mill. According to legend, this hustle and bustle was put to an end by a veteran soldier when he noticed the theft, returned to the mill and gave the miller a good rub.

The buildings in their current form date from 1898. On the night of March 23, 1933, a fire broke out in the mill's farm buildings, which required the use of fire brigades from all the surrounding villages, which alarmed with bells, rifle shots, trumpet signals and fire calls were. With the help of the Augsburg professional fire brigade , which used a car sprayer, at least part of the property was saved, the coach house and the barn were completely destroyed, the stable partially destroyed. In the last few decades the mill was repeatedly affected by severe flooding, but the flood protection has been significantly improved through various construction measures. The mill is no longer in operation today, the buildings were rented to several traders.



Since the incorporation of Edenbergen in 1978, the village has provided a voting district for the city of Gersthofen with the number "0023". Since the polling station for Edenbergen and Gailenbach is always in the fire station of the volunteer fire brigade, the electoral district bears the name "Fire Department Edenbergen".

coat of arms

The Edenberg coat of arms was introduced around the end of the 18th century and is based with only minor deviations on the family coat of arms of the southern German line of the noble family of Paris , which had its seat at Gailenbach Castle from 1771 to 1838. The blazon of the village coat of arms names a shield divided by silver and red, above in blue a red-tongued and armored, rear-looking lion with a silver heraldic lily in the right front paw, below three, one to two, silver heraldic lilies. In the Paris family coat of arms , however, the lion did not hold a lily and the three lower lilies were gold and two-to-one.

The lily is a common figure in heraldry. As a symbol of Saint Mary and those people who submit to her patronage, she stands for purity and innocence. The tripartite division of the flower of the lily symbolizes the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The striding, leoparded lion stands as the "king of animals" for courage and royalty.

The street sign of "Edenberger Straße" in Augsburg

Due to the small size of the village, only a few places and institutions bear the name of Edenbergen.

In the northern Augsburg district of Bärenkeller there is an "Edenberger Straße" and a "Gailenbachweg" in the immediate vicinity, next to this there is a "Gailenbacher Weg" in the town of Neusäß, south of Edenbergen, which runs from the Hammel district along the eastern edge of the " Rauhen Forst " via the "Gailenbacher Siedlung" to the Edenbergen motorway service station. In addition, the street leading from Edenbergen via Gailenbach to Gailenbacher Mühle bears the name "Gailenbacher Straße".

Other names after Edenbergen are mainly due to the family name "Edenberger", which denoted the origin from Edenbergen and is now documented not only in Germany, but also, for example, in Austria or the USA . For example, a café and a boat rental in Fuschl am See, Austria, are called "Edenberger".

Culture and sights


Local chapel with a war memorial

The listed local chapel of Edenbergen with the war memorial

The center of Edenbergen is characterized by the war memorial dedicated to the male villagers who died as soldiers . The memorial was originally erected in 1921 after the First World War and expanded in 1953 to include the fallen soldiers of the Second World War . Next to it is the now listed local chapel, which is designed as a rectangular building with a gable roof and dates from 1850. There were originally three large linden trees around the chapel and monument, which were planted at the same time the chapel was built. For safety reasons, one of the trees had to be felled in 2006.

Fire station

On the opposite side of the street is the fire station of the volunteer fire brigade Edenbergen, which was built in its original form in 1934 with a hose tower and replaced a previous building from 1886. The building has been rebuilt over the years and adapted to the technical innovations. In 1955, an extension with a deep freezer and a community room was built to the north . The last time the floor of the equipment hall was lowered was in 1998 to accommodate the new fire engine . At the same time, the building's attic was expanded and today it houses the offices and some storage rooms for the fire brigade. Due to its central location, active members of the fire brigade can quickly reach it and at the same time it is the only public building in the area that is used for various events. The Edenbergen maypole, which is newly erected every year, can be found north of the fire station, where it is anchored in a special bracket.

Field chapel Mariahilf at the parish square

The Mariahilf field chapel under the linden trees, which are protected as natural monuments

The Mariahilf field chapel is located on the parish square north of the closed buildings in Edenbergen and borders in the west on the extension of Lindenbergstrasse, which leads north from the village to the connecting road from Batzenhofen to Rettenbergen. The gable roof building with a small vestibule dates from the first half of the 18th century and is a listed building. The chapel is surrounded by three star-shaped linden trees, which are protected as a natural monument . The parish square as well as the linden trees and the chapel are actually located in the corridor of today's Batzenhofer district, but historically belong to Edenbergen. On August 15th , the Roman Catholic holiday of the Assumption , the field service of the Batzenhof parish of Sankt Martin, to which Edenbergen belongs, is celebrated here.

Gailenbach Castle Estate

The listed castle building in Gailenbach

The former castle estate in Gailenbach, together with the surrounding park, is a listed building as well as a ground monument, as findings from the early modern period can be found in the area of ​​the complex . The park is surrounded all around by a castle wall, which is actually a picket fence with large pillars made of bricks . The actual castle building, a two-storey saddle roof building with stepped gables, dates back to 1592, was rebuilt in 1816/17 and renovated for the last time in 1955/56.

The associated manor consists of two pitched roof buildings, a residential house and a farm building, the core of which dates from the 17th century and was changed in the 18th century. The manor and castle are connected to the west by a round arched gate decorated with a plaster boss . There is also a single linden tree on the southern wall of the castle park , which is a protected natural monument.

Path chapel on the Mähder

The listed path chapel on the Mähder near Edenbergen

On the Mähder between Gailenbach and Edenbergen there is a listed path chapel dedicated to Saint Mary . The gable roof construction with a semicircular end to the west and a porch supported by two columns to the east dates from the end of the 17th century. The term "Mähder" refers to the located right next to the chapel Acker : "Mähder" used to be a mainly in terms of hay common alternative term for the Reaper , a harvest workers in the grain harvest of the grain by hand with a scythe mowing .


The community life in Edenbergen is decisively shaped by the volunteer fire brigade , which is the only local association. All events during the year are planned and carried out by the members of the fire brigade, with the city of Gersthofen partly contributing financially to the costs.

Maypole Festival

Attachment of the decoration of the Edenberger maypole

Every year on the eve of May 1st, the maypole is set up at the fire station of the volunteer fire brigade in the center of the village . It is always a newly felled tree donated by another villager, the crown of which is left and which is decorated with wreaths. The occupational and social activities of the villagers are shown on a total of twelve signs on the left and right of the tree, with the coat of arms of the city of Gersthofen emblazoned above it, and below it in the middle the Edenberg coat of arms.

Until 2007, the tree was erected by hand by the villagers using so-called coulter poles, which is no longer possible due to the redesign of Lindenbergstrasse for reasons of space. Since then, the tree is a rented mobile crane erected. The May Festival then takes place under the tree and in the fire station, the children of the village use the free night for little pranks . As part of the storm in Germany in the summer of 2013 , there was a lightning strike in the maypole, so that it had to be felled for safety reasons.

Garden party

Every year in summer, mostly in June , the garden festival takes place on the publicly accessible Edenberger sports field on a Sunday. A small beer garden will be built under the trees next to the sports field, which is managed by the fire brigade. The small village brass band and that of the neighboring village of Batzenhofen provide the background music.

In recent years the garden festival has been partially replaced by a village festival, which was then celebrated in the town center. The first village festival was held in 2007 to celebrate the newly designed Lindenbergstrasse.


Local transport

The bus stop "Edenbergen-Mitte"

Despite its rural location, Edenbergen is still part of the city zone 20 of the tariff area of ​​the Augsburg transport association due to its short distance to Augsburg . The village is served at regular intervals at the two stops Edenbergen-Mitte and Edenbergen-West by bus routes 27 (to and from Augsburg-Nord) and 56 (from and to Gersthofen) operated by Gersthofer Verkehrsgesellschaft . In addition, the call collective taxi of line 420 runs to and from Augsburg-Nord if you book in advance .

Renewable Energies

The solar park near Edenbergen

In addition to smaller photovoltaic systems installed on the roofs of various residential buildings, there are two large systems for the generation of regenerative energies in the Edenberger district:

A little less than a kilometer from the town center is a solar park with a total area of ​​around 8.4 hectares , southwest of Edenbergen and directly north of the A8 motorway . The building application was approved by the Gersthof City Council in 2011, which necessitated the preparation of a development plan for the area previously used for agricultural purposes. The system was then installed by a company from Schwabsoien with individual solar modules each 2.5 meters high and, assuming the standard test conditions, has a nominal output of 1720 kW ( kW p ).

In addition, at the eastern border of Edenberger district on the property of a farm a biogas plant for the production of biogas by fermenting of liquid manure . The performance of the plant was established in 2011 by the City Council by a Gersthofer Tektur the existing building permit increased. A use of the waste heat obtained in this way to heat the building fabric in Edenbergen is still in the planning process.

Motorway service station

The petrol station at the Edenbergen motorway service station

Edenbergen is known nationwide above all for the motorway service station of the same name on the A 8 in the south of the district. The rest area with a gas station , a restaurant and a motel is located at kilometer 58 and can only be reached by travelers traveling in the direction of Augsburg. The service area cannot be officially approached from Edenbergen - the access roads are only released for employees and motel guests.

Club life

Volunteer firefighter

The fire station of the volunteer fire brigade in the center of Edenbergen

The Edenbergen volunteer fire brigade was founded in 1875, presumably at the suggestion of the Royal District Office of Augsburg, by the then mayor Josef Bosch, and was intended to replace the compulsory fire brigade that had existed in the community for decades , to which all male residents between the ages of 17 and 55 were drawn .

In the early years the fire brigade contributed to the social life of the village: in 1886 the first fire brigade ball was held. In the same year the first fire station was built. In the decades that followed, the fire brigade was repeatedly upgraded its technical equipment, including in 1911 when Edenbergen was connected to the water supply and the associated installation of hydrants.

During the First and Second World Wars, the fire brigade suffered from a clear lack of personnel, so that women were also accepted into active fire service. One of the biggest fires in the village's history broke out in the interwar period: on the night of March 23, 1933, the farm buildings of the Gailenbacher Mühle burned down almost completely. In 1934 the fire station, which is still in use today, was built in the center of the village, replacing the previous building from 1886. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary, which was only celebrated in 1976, the fire brigade received a fire engine 8 for the first time - until then only portable and trailer-supported fire pumps were in use.

Even after the village was incorporated into Gersthofen, the fire brigade retained its status and today has an 8/6 fire engine purchased in 1998 and a portable pump trailer . The fire brigade is known in the area for its high number of members in relation to the population of the village and for the extraordinarily high number of women in active service.

Other clubs

Edenbergen has its own local branch of the Bavarian Farmers' Association , which sees itself as the unified organization of Bavarian agriculture and forestry and as a representative of the interests of its members. The local group bundles these activities on site with the support of the local farmers.

The Edenbergen-based association Die Helfenden Dinge eV sees the implementation of the association's purpose in the support of people in difficult circumstances, such as the unemployed , offenders , addicts or other people in need of help.

Edenbergen is also the seat of the board of the Augsburg-based rocket model sports association (RAMOG), which is active throughout Germany . The association has committed itself to the promotion and maintenance of rocket model flying , rocket model flying and youth work.

The 1st Augsburg Angler Club has built a fishing hut at the Gailenbacher Mühle , so that a large part of its club life takes place here.
