Hirschlanden is a district of Rosenberg in the Neckar-Odenwald district in Baden-Württemberg .


Hirschlanden was first mentioned in a document in 1100 in the Hirsauer Codex . As part of the community reform and the amalgamation of the communities of Rosenberg, Sindolsheim and Bronnacker, Hirschlanden lost its political independence on January 1, 1972.

Church and school

Protestant church

The parish was first in 1450 in Würzburg Diocesan matrikel mentioned. Nothing is known about their exact age and patronage , as the old church records were burned during the wars of the Reformation. The Reformation was introduced in Hirschlanden by Alfred von Rosenberg around 1558. After the old church in the area of ​​the lower Steige burned down, the current village church was built in 1717. The new rectory (opposite the new church) was built in 1850. Up until 1909 there were only people of Protestant faith in Hirschlanden. In the period that followed, the proportion of residents of Catholic denomination remained very low at around 2 percent. Hirschlanden is the seat of the Adelsheim-Boxberg church district of the Evangelical Church in Baden .

The old school building in the area of ​​the former restaurant "Zur Eisenbahn" was extended in 1830 due to a lack of space. In 1892 there was again insufficient space, as more than 100 students had to be taught. Construction of the new school building began in 1902. In 1904 a teacher still had around 99 children to teach. After that, two to three teachers taught at the village school. The number of pupils fell from 105 (1890), 99 (1904), 80 (1925), 76 (1951), 50 (1955), 57 (1961) to 26 (1969), and the school was closed in 1970.

Cultural monuments


  • As far as we know today, the association that goes back the furthest is the fruit growing association founded in 1812, which however disbanded after a few years. The craftsmen's association was created around 1850. The oldest club still in existence is the Singers Association , which was founded in 1868 as a men's choir. In addition, until the turn of the century (1900) there was another men's choir called Eintracht .
  • The war club was founded in 1886 and dissolved at the end of the Second World War. A cycling club existed until around 1920, with around 35 members.
  • A gymnastics club was founded in 1912, but it was dissolved again after 8 years in 1920.
  • In 1923, the Teutonia football club was founded , and it still exists today. After the club mostly played in the district class B, they were promoted to the A class for the first time in the 2000/2001 season, followed by immediate relegation. In the 2017/2018 season, the promotion succeeded again, as a long-term syndicate with SV Berolzheim. After relegation in 2019 from the district class A, the men's team disbanded. Now there is only one women's team that plays in the district league.
  • A local volunteer fire brigade has existed since 1937 at the latest, but probably much longer. In addition, a youth fire brigade was launched in 1990 and an age division in 1992. With a staff of approx. 50–55 comrades, totaled from the active, youth and age sections, the local fire brigade includes a remarkable 13% of the village population.
  • In 1974 the cultural association Schluckspechte Hirschlanden was founded. He is best known for his theatrical performances.
  • The Town Hall Museum Association was founded in November 2007. He runs the museum restaurant of the Hirschbräu Hirschlanden microbrewery, which only serves the self-produced beer in this restaurant. There is also a permanent exhibition in the building on the history of brewing in the Main-Tauber-Odenwald region. After the legendary Pfeifferhannes burned down in 1990 , this is the first restaurant in town again after 18 years.
