Community structure

The community consists of the districts Ihringen and Wasenweiler. The districts are spatially identical to the communities of the same name before the Baden-Württemberg community reform in the 1970s. The official naming of the districts is made by prefixing the name of the municipality and followed by the name of the respective district connected with a hyphen. The two districts also form the residential districts of Ihringen (or residential district I ) and Wasenweiler (or residential district II ) within the meaning of the Baden-Württemberg municipal code . The district of Wasenweiler is a locality within the meaning of the Baden-Württemberg municipal code with its own local council and a local mayor as its chairman.

The Ihringen district includes the village of Ihringen, Liliental Castle and Farm (Lilienhof) and the Blankenhornsberg and Sauwasen residential areas. The Wasenweiler district includes the Wasenweiler village, the Neunkirch chapel and house and the Wasenweiler train station residential area. In the area of the district Ihringen are the dialed or risen in other places former villages Bachheim, Wyke, Brett Weiler, Brütheim, Güttisried, Kettingen, Nordheim, Ostheim , Riedheim, chess home's Willingen, Scherkofen, West Home and Wolptal whose existence but only suspected becomes.


In addition, Ihringen also includes the districts of Martinshöfe and Lilienhof (Liliental), where there is also a 25 hectare state test site for the forest ecology department of the Baden-Württemberg Forest Research Institute, which is open to the public. There are also the Lenzenberg resettlements , the Blankenhornsberg state winery and several Aussiedlerhöfe around Ihringen.


Ihringen 1621

Ihringen is characterized by extensive settlement in prehistoric times. The largest Celtic group of burial mounds in the southern Baden Upper Rhine Plain is located on the lower terrace about 500 meters southwest of the village. Graves were found from the Middle Bronze Age, i.e. from approx. 1500 BC. However, the Celtic burial mounds from the period between approx. 850 and 250 BC predominate. Chr.

In 1974, during a land consolidation, a fortified Celtic hilltop settlement with numerous finds was excavated on a hilltop of the Kaiserstuhl protected on three sides by steep slopes, about 500 meters northwest of the village. It is used between 600 and 500 BC. Dated. There was most likely a connection between this settlement, which can be interpreted as a mansion, and the large burial mound field, which is within sight in the plain.

In addition to individual Roman settlements, Merovingian graves from the 7th century AD were discovered in various places in Ihringen, which point to the early founding of the place and its districts that disappeared in the Middle Ages.

Ihringen was first mentioned in a document in 962 as Uringa . The Grand Duchy of Baden came through the margraviate of Baden-Durlach . Wasenweiler was first mentioned in a document as Uuasenuuilara in 1000 AD . Its history is strongly determined by the Teutonic Order : From 1297/98 to 1806, as part of Upper Austria, the Teutonic Order Commander Freiburg held the upper bailiff's rights over the place. Both places have belonged to Baden-Württemberg since 1952 .

As part of the community reform , the community Wasenweiler was incorporated into the neighboring community of Ihringen to the west on July 1, 1974. The different rulers in the course of history (Baden-Durlach Protestant, German Order Catholic) explain the different confessional orientation of the two wine-growing communities.

The center of the community was a synagogue completed in 1864 , which replaced a previous building. As elsewhere, this building was destroyed by arson during the night of the pogrom . The naming of the Synagogenplatz reminds of this. The community also owned a cemetery , which still exists west of Ihringen today. He was violated in 1990 and again in 2007.

Blazon of the Ihringen coat of arms : "In a split shield in front in gold (yellow) a red sloping bar, behind in red over a silver (white) pruning knife a fallen golden (yellow) grape on a stem." The red sloping bar in gold is an indication of the rule of the Margraves of Baden-Durlach.

The coat of arms of Wasenweiler shows corresponding elements: the black paw cross on a silver background refers to the centuries of local rule of the Teutonic Order . In the small heart shield, a blue grape in the green style on a gold background indicates the long winemaking tradition.
