The Rechberg , Gmünder Bürger, the Hl.-Geist-Spital and the Augustinian Monastery of Gmünd , the Woellwarth and the parish of St. Ulrich zu Heubach appear in Buch as landlords and local lords . In 1528 the local rulers agreed on a contract regarding their rights. The chapel, built in 1519, fell victim to the construction of Bucher Hauptstrasse. A new chapel was built, which houses a richly designed winged altar from 1522 from the old chapel. Village life is shaped by the very active sports and village community of Buch, which in 1990, in cooperation with the city of Heubach, set up the multifunctional meeting place “Bucher Dorfschenke”.

Lautern suburb

The suburb of Lautern is embedded in the upstream mountains of the Eastern Alb along the Lauter that gives it its name . Lautern is known as the “gardener's village” with its twelve horticultural businesses and a large tree nursery. Until the municipality reform in 1971, Lautern was an independent municipality. The mayor is Bernhard Deininger. In Lautern there is a very active village community with many associations and a Catholic parish.

Since the anniversary "650 years Lautern" in 1995, a historical market has been held every four years under the motto "Lautern anno 1900", which each time attracts around 20,000 visitors.


Rosenstein castle ruins above the town of Heubach

Until the 16th century

The oldest traces of settlement in the urban area of ​​Heubach date from the late 13th or early 12th millennium BC. The age of a bone bullet tip found in the “Kleine Scheuer” cave has been dated to 14,000 years. This makes Heubach the oldest documented settlement in the entire Ostalb district.

Ceramic finds, ramparts and barrows on the Rosenstein, Hoch- and Mittelberg indicate a settlement by settled parts of the population between 800 and 400 BC. Further finds of iron implements suggest that the ramparts on the Rosenstein were reused as a refuge by the Alemannic population in the period from the 3rd to the 5th century AD. A mansion in the area of ​​the Heubacher Castle and Ulrichskirche can be assumed from around the year 700.

In 1234 Heubach was first mentioned in a document in connection with a knight Hainricus de Hôbach. The Rosenstein castle ruins are located on the Rosenstein and were first mentioned in 1282. At the end of the 13th century, Heubach and the Rosenstein came into the possession of the Counts of Oettingen , who pledged the property to the Counts of Württemberg around 1358 . The city charter has Heubach since 1334. After the victory of Emperor Charles IV. Against the Wuerttemberg Count Eberhard the Greiner fell Heubach and Rosenstein in 1360 to the Kingdom of Bohemia , went in 1377 but again as security stem ownership of Württemberg over that with the possession by 1413 Men von Woellwarth enfeoffed. Georg von Woellwarth left Rosenstein Castle in 1524 and built a castle in Heubach.

Württemberg time

In 1579, Duke Ludwig von Württemberg bought Heubach and Rosenstein back and made Heubach an official town. In 1581 a town hall was built. In the Thirty Years' War the population sank to 10 people, but the town was quickly rebuilt and repopulated due to the efforts of the Württemberg government.

The Oberamt Heubach existed from the 18th century and was merged with the Oberamt Gmünd on April 25, 1807 when the new administrative structure was implemented in the Kingdom of Württemberg , which was founded in 1806 .

The opening of the Remsbahn by the Württemberg State Railways in 1861 gave access to a modern means of transport via the nearby railway station in Unterböbingen , but the city did not get its own railway station until 1972, when the Unterböbingen – Heubach branch line opened was shut down.

A total of 72 Heubach citizens died in the First World War .

Nazi era

A local branch of the NSDAP was founded in Heubach as early as 1932 . In the Reichstag election of March 5, 1933 , the NSDAP in Heubach received 55.4% (nationwide: 43.9%) of the valid votes, whereas the center with 20.1% (nationwide: 14.0%) and the SPD with 5 , 4% (nationwide: 18.3%) with a high voter turnout (90.3%). In a unanimous decision of Heubach Municipal Council of 22 March 1933 to the Chancellor Adolf Hitler and the Reich President Paul von Hindenburg each honorary citizenship one - the city of Heubach then trend following - have been awarded after the end of the Nazi dictatorship in each case has been withdrawn has been.

With the administrative reforms during the Nazi era in Württemberg , the Oberamt became the district of Gmünd in 1934 and the newly defined district of Schwäbisch Gmünd in 1938 , to which Heubach has belonged since then. In the referendum on the head of state on August 19, 1934 - Reich President Paul von Hindenburg died at the age of 86 at the beginning of August 1934 - 1,599 of 1,670 eligible voters cast their votes. 97.3% (nationwide: 89.9%) voted for the merging of the office of the Reich President with that of the Reich Chancellor and 2.1% (nationwide: 10.1%) against.

From May 1, 1935, the former sub-communities Beuren, Buch and Heubach formed one community. Wilhelm Gayer was Mayor of Heubach from March 1, 1939 until his entry into the Wehrmacht at the end of 1943. Then city architect Mangold was appointed acting mayor. Deputy mayor at that time was Wilhelm Braun.

On March 16, 1944, there was an aerial battle between the German destroyer squadron 76 and a US bomber unit over the area around Heubach. 26 German interceptors were shot down, ten crash landings and three American B-17 bombers crashed between Heubach and Mögglingen . The deceased crews were buried in the cemetery in Heubach and later transferred to a military cemetery.

The city of Heubach played a key role in the German defense of the Albaufgang. As a result of the military's refusal to surrender peacefully, which was temporarily enforced by the SS with the threat of armed violence, shortly before the end of World War II , Heubach was removed from the US on April 23 and on the night of April 24, 1945 -american artillery was fired at from the direction of Igginger Höhe and Mögglingen. A total of five people were killed and three Heubacher were injured, some seriously. Many residents then took refuge in air raid tunnels around the Rosenstein and on the sand as well as to Beuren. Here, however, some " werewolves " had retired in their youth, who fanatically wanted to take up the hopeless fight against the advancing US troops. A 15-year-old member of the Werwolf organization died as part of these retreat battles.

On April 22, 1945 the Volkssturm Heubach was set in motion in the direction of Ulm . Since the acting mayor Mangold was badly injured in the leg by a shrapnel on the evening of April 23, 1945 and was guarded by members of the SS , the deputy mayor Wilhelm Braun secured the early morning of April 24, 1945 - after the Wehrmacht had finally withdrawn peaceful surrender of the city to the Allies . Heubach narrowly escaped the threat of bombing by the US air forces that had already been requested and were in the air . On the morning of Tuesday, April 24, 1945, at around 10:00 a.m., Heubach was captured and liberated by US troops under hoisted white flags with the help of four tanks from the 10th US Panzer Division coming from Böbinger Strasse . Through Beuren and over the Bargauer Kreuz, the US troops then moved on to the Alb highlands in the direction of Ulm.

Laxou (France)

In the same year the first contacts between Heubach and Laxou began near Nancy in Lorraine . On September 26, 1964, the city friendship certificate was signed at a festive event. The euro Council awarded in 1976 the two cities, the high honor of the Flag of Honor of Europe in recognition of their outstanding achievements for international understanding . Numerous contacts and friendships have emerged over the last few decades. The 50th anniversary was celebrated in Heubach in 2014.

Waidhofen an der Thaya (Austria)

In 1982, Heubach came into contact with the Austrian municipality of Waidhofen an der Thaya (near the Czech border) through connections between displaced citizens . On May 15, 1982 this partnership was sealed with a sisterhood certificate.

Lauscha (Thuringia)

The city of Heubach sealed its third partnership on September 1, 1990 in Heubach, initiated by the longstanding contacts between the evangelical parish and the glassblowing town of Lauscha in the former GDR . The partnership document was countersigned on October 3, 1990, the day of reunification , in Lauscha.

Anderamboukane (Mali)

Anderamboukane is located in the southeast of Mali , near the border with Niger . The population is approx. 26,000, the municipal area approx. 9,000 km² (Baden-Württemberg 35,751.46 km²). The municipal council consists of 23 members, meetings take place every three months. Mainly Tuareg live in Anderamboukane .

Many of them are employed as cattle breeders (donkeys, goats, camels, sheep and cattle), mainly millet and beans. Fish farming also plays a role thanks to the adjacent pond. Artisans make goods from silver, wood, iron and animal skins. The natural foundations such as the nature of the soil, weather and topography are extremely unfavorable. The advancement of the desert endangers the livelihood of the inhabitants. The whole country is very dependent on the rain, because the food source consists of their own harvest. Failure to rain has serious consequences.

Heubach's French twin town Laxou established contacts with Anderamboukane as early as 2000 . In the meantime, some projects have been funded and also implemented on site. The city of Heubach and its citizens support the people in Anderamboukane in the school system, health sector, in agriculture and in daily life. The projects are organized and supported by the residents of Anderamboukanes themselves. The city of Heubach has set up a donation account for Anderamboukane at Raiffeisenbank Rosenstein and Kreissparkasse Ostalb .

On New Year's Day in 2015, Mayor Aroudeiny Ag Hamatou was so badly injured in a rebel attack that he died two days later. Heubach mourned with his twin town.

Triumph International was founded in 1886 by Johann Gottfried Spießhofer and Michael Braun as Spießhofer & Braun in Heubach. The manufacturer of women's and men's underwear, leisurewear and home clothing is now active worldwide and is still based in Heubach, but the corporate headquarters of the still family-owned company has been in Bad Zurzach , Switzerland , since 1977 .

The development of the deer brewery is closely linked to the history of the town of Heubach . Chroniclers trace their origins back to around 1600, but there is documentary evidence that the "oldest brewery" was allowed to brew and serve beer until 1725, but only on May 2nd of the same year the concession for the shield tavern with the sign "Zum Hirsch “Was awarded. At that time, the Jakob Hornegger family owned the Hirsch brewery. In 1874 Leonhard Johann Mayer took over the Heubacher brewery, which has been family-owned ever since.

In 1981 the theater and comedy group Die kleine Tierschau was founded in Heubach by school friends Michael Gaedt, Michael Schulig and Ernst Mantel .

The local name for the citizens of Heubach is "Mondstupfler". This goes back to an old legend of the city of Heubach, according to which the Heubach people climbed the Rosenstein at night many years ago to fetch the moon from the sky with long poles. In the coat of arms of the Woellwarths , who formerly ruled the area, there is a white crescent moon on a red background. A connection between this family coat of arms and the name “Mondstupfer” is suspected, but cannot be proven beyond doubt.
