Evangelical Church Gallenweiler

Gallenweiler was first mentioned in a document in 775 as the property of Lorsch Abbey, but Alemannic plate graves and skeleton finds indicate that the place must have existed in the 6th or 7th century and probably got its name around 800 due to its affiliation to St. Gallen Monastery . In the 14th century Gallenweiler came to the Baden-margravial rule of Badenweiler and belonged to the Bailiwick of Laufen. The village of Muttikofen still existed in what is now the district of Gallenweiler until the 15th century, which then became deserted . Gallenweiler became a Protestant enclave in the Catholic principality of Heitersheim after the Reformation in 1556 . In 1793 a chapel was transformed into today's church building, which was supplemented by a three-story brick tower from 1863–1866. In 1971, the previously independent village of Gallenweiler was incorporated into the neighboring Heitersheim as part of the administrative reform.
