Nature and landscape protection areas
In the municipal area of Immenstaad there are currently two nature reserves (“ Lipbach estuary ”, “ Lipbachsenke ”), landscape protection areas (“ Bodenseeufer ”, “Lipbachsenke”) and FFH areas (“ Bodensee hinterland between Salem and Markdorf ”, “ Bodenseeufer west of Friedrichshafen ”).
The name "Immenstaad" is attributed to the Alemannic founder Immo . The first known documentary mention dates back to 1094, when the Bavarian Duke Welf IV transferred property there to Weingarten Monastery . Kippenhausen, first mentioned as Chippenhusen in 1158, belonged to the Welfs in 1165. The village then passed to the Counts of Montfort, then to the imperial county of Ittendorf and formed a bailiwick with Reute and Frenkenbach. The area of Frenkenbach ( Frenkinbach ) came from Guelph ownership to Weingarten Monastery before 1143; the Vogtei was with the Schmalegg / Ittendorf taverns from 1281 to 1693. The wreck, which was discovered in 1981 on the banks of the Kippenhorn and which turned out to be the oldest ship find in Lake Constance , dates from the late Middle Ages, around 1340 . Archaeologists recovered and conserved the large wreck in an elaborate, long-term operation, so that it can now be viewed in the Archaeological State Museum in Konstanz (see also Shipwrecks in Lake Constance ). In the Thirty Years' War Immenstaad was affected by the naval war on Lake Constance (1632–1648).
The Immenstaad rulership was very fragmented until the Fürstenberg family bought the entire town in the late 18th century . The first school in town was founded as early as 1716 on the basis of the will of the priest Stephan Brodmann . In 1806 the place became a border town of Baden with the Grenzbach between Immenstaad and Fischbach as the border.
On February 1, 1972, Kippenhausen and the hamlet of Frenkenbach were incorporated into Immenstaad with Helmsdorf.
In 1956 the federal road 31 was relocated to a new route outside the town center. In the 1960s and 1970s there was a direct link between the economic growth of the Dornier company and the sudden doubling of the population. The result was that a settlement development with high-rise buildings began in the east, the so-called Dornier area, on which EADS and a number of innovative companies have now settled. The western part of Immenstaad still has the character of a village today. A development that could continue due to its proximity to the industrial city of Friedrichshafen. The increasing demand for housing is a problem that the community has been grappling with since the 1960s.
In addition to a Roman Catholic parish in Immenstaad and Kippenhausen, there is also a Protestant parish in Immenstaad . Followers of the Bahá'í religion have also lived in the village since the 1950s . In 1999 a Bahá'í congregation with a local administrative body ( spiritual council ) was established.
The municipal council consists of the elected voluntary councilors and the mayor as chairman. The mayor is entitled to vote in the municipal council.

coat of arms
The coat of arms is in red with a wavy border divided by blue and silver. It shows Jodok's pilgrimage signs in gold : a pilgrim shell, the crossed pilgrim sticks and the discarded crown.
Culture and sights
- The local history museum in Haus Montfort is housed in a house built or renovated in 1796. According to the inscription in the beam above the entrance, the builders were Simeon Schitterle and his wife Ursula nee. Rigler. At the end of the 20th century, the community undertook extensive renovations. The building is covered with a hipped roof and shows splendid half-timbering with ornaments, the arm of the economic sign comes from the linden tree in Schussenried. The building was entered in the list of architectural monuments in 1936. In the gallery on the upper floor, changing exhibitions by artists from the region are shown. The concept of the local history museum is to show the culture of past centuries and the work of the people in the surrounding area on the basis of old objects, predominantly of daily use. Handicrafts and farm equipment are part of the exhibition, some of which still have to be researched. Household items and the furnishings of an old shop complete the exhibition. The exhibits on prehistory and early history are on loan from the State Monuments Office. The costumes of the traditional folk groups are also worth seeing.
- The Seebär gallery is home to an almost complete collection of Steiff animals and a large exhibition of Barbie dolls.
Catholic parish church of St. Jodokus
The Catholic parish church of St. Jodokus is a church building that characterizes the town. The community belongs to the pastoral care unit Immenstaad in the Archdiocese of Freiburg . A Gothic choir, an old tower and a church building from more recent times have grown together to form a unit.
History of the parish
The small community originally had a small chapel , it was a branch of the parish in Bermatingen , which was about three hours away. Bermatingen belonged to the Cistercian Abbey of Salem . The believers from Immenstaad wanted their own pastor because of the long walk, but the Salem Abbey vehemently rejected this. The community turned to (counter) Pope John XXIII. , he resided in Bologna . The Immenstaad rebuilt the chapel into a church and built a cemetery. After the Council of Constance , the community was raised to a parish.
The nave has undergone a number of changes over the centuries; it was demolished in 1980. The choir was preserved as a side chapel. The then newly built church was consecrated by Bishop Karl Gnädinger from Freiburg on October 24, 1982. The parish hall and various event rooms were located in the basement. The formerly Gothic reticulated vault had to give way to a baroque plaster ceiling. The choir arch is also a testimony from the Gothic era. In line with contemporary tastes, the baroque furnishings were replaced by a neo-Gothic one towards the end of the 19th century .
The plans for the new building were drawn up by the architect Hanns B. Schlichte from Friedrichshafen. The new church with its components from different centuries contains the vision of John (Apocalypse 21,3) as a guiding principle : See the tent of God among the people. He will dwell with them and they will be his people and he, God, will be with them. This is also symbolized by the tent roof . Construction began on September 29, 1980, before that there were disputes and lawsuits for over five years on the issue of preserving the former nave. The foundation stone was laid on November 8, 1981, and the rectory in the basement of the new building was completed at the end of 1982. Auxiliary Bishop Karl Gnädiger from Freiburg consecrated the building on October 24, 1982. As before, this new church was under the patronage of Jodokus. The veneration of these saints was particularly widespread in the Diocese of Constance . The seventeen stained glass stained glass church windows were designed in 1982 by Hermann Geyer . The execution was carried out by the Derix glass workshop in Rottweil. They are very colorful and show the days of creation, the fall of man, the expulsion from paradise, characters from the Old Testament, the birth of Christ, Jesus carrying the cross and his death. Further topics are the burial and the resurrection and the scene with the Emmaus disciples. The formerly Gothic choir was preserved and is now used as a side chapel. The oil painting depicting the coronation of Mary hangs on the wall in front of the choir. It is framed by carved and set rosary medallions that come from an old rosary altar from the Baroque period. The church window was made by Lütz from Sigmaringen in 1877 . They represent the church teachers Augustine, Ambrosius, Hieronymus and Gregorius. The south window, created in 1952 by Hans Breinlinger, shows the birth of Christ. The tracery of the windows and the pointed arch at the entrance to the choir are relics from the Gothic period. The old ribbed vault was replaced by a stucco ceiling when the building was baroque.
- The ceremonial altar , the ambo, the tabernacle stele and the sediles were cast in bronze by the goldsmith Egino Weinert from Cologne based on designs by the architect Schlichte. Weinert also carried out the enamel work. A picture of the Lord's Supper is affixed to the doors of the tabernacle stele. The ambo is adorned with an enamel picture showing the sending of the Holy Spirit . The altar is the center of the building and is emphasized by the large roof windows with light.
- Karl Reihing from Tettnang built the neo-Gothic high altar in 1877. A crowned figure of Mary from around 1460 stands on it above the tabernacle, with the baby Jesus sitting on her left arm with a ball in her hand. Maria carries a scepter in her right hand . Figures of Dominic and Catherine of Siena stand next to the Madonna, flanked by Konrad von Konstanz and Jodokus. In the upper part there are the figures of the risen Christ, accompanied by Catherine of Alexandria and Veronica with the attribute of a welding cloth.
- On the ceiling above the neo-Gothic altar is an oil painting from the second half of the 18th century, it shows the Last Supper .
- The reliquary for Jodokus is also a work by Weinert. He created it in 1982.
- The mural in the chancel is a work by Hermann Geyer from Ulm.
- A hanging cross with a crucifix from 1525 hangs from the ceiling.
- On the north side is the tomb for the Dankenschweil family, who at times owned the Helmsdorf Castle. Esaias Grueber the Younger made the tomb after 1608.
- Dominikus Hermengild Herberger created two stone epitaphs . One was intended for his own family, the other for Anna Maria Rauber, geb. Dafinger. Since Herberger did not have his own family coat of arms, he adorned the epitaph with the depiction of the holy family on the flight to Egypt, supplemented by a skull and a putto with a sad expression.
- The choir stalls probably date from the 16th century, in 1713 the coat of arms of the Kommende Mainau and the symbol of Jodokus were added.
- The organ adapts to the interior in terms of shape and color; the organ builder Mönch installed the instrument in 1933.
- Egino Weinhart created the reliquary on the side wall of the main exit in 1982. The reliquary contains a relic of Jodokus. The shrine is adorned with enamel paintings depicting the life of the saint. A bronze figure was placed on the high gable wall in memory of Jodokus.
- In the neo-Gothic high altar from 1877 there is a crowned Madonna with the baby Jesus from around 1470. This is one of the most important Gothic sculptures in the entire Lake Constance region.
- On the wall of the sacristy there is an oil painting from the Baroque period, it shows the coronation of Mary. It is surrounded by rosary medallions that come from an old baroque altar. The medallions with the birth and the ascension have been lost.
- The wooden figures of Saints Catherine of Siena and Dominic from around 1665, as well as of Bishop Konrad von Konstanz and Jodokus from 1877 flank the crowned Madonna.
- The apostles and Christ statues are partly the work of Daniel Schenk, who lived from 1633 to 1691.
- Two sandstone epitaphs are the work of Dominikus Hermengild Herberger, who died in Immenstaad in 1760. He also created the wooden figure Christ in the dungeon around 1733, which stands in a niche on the choir wall.
The Johann Mannhard´sche Königlich Bayrische Hof-Turmuhren-Fabrik in Munich manufactured the tower clock in 1893 and installed it. The machine-made clocks were considered milestones in the development of tower clock construction. The clock worked reliably until 1982, after which, according to a transfer agreement, the parish passed into the possession of the parish, which until then had financially supported the clock. The watch was dismantled and temporarily stored in 2002. The Heimatverein took over the preservation and care from 2005.
A medieval bell with the tone g disturbed the interplay of the ringing, the other bells from medieval times sounded homogeneous.
The bells from the Wolfart foundry from Lauingen sounded very favorably with the C minor chord of the other old bells from this foundry.

- The parish church of the Assumption of Mary in the district of Kippenhausen dates back to the 15th century (tower, surrounding walls of the choir). It stands on a hill in the middle of the village. The place was mentioned in 1275 as an independent parish. The nave and the choir were rebuilt in the Baroque style in 1710 by order of Abbot Sebastian Hyler from Weingarten. The interior is splendid. The historic parsonage opposite belongs to the church; it was built around 1800 as a black and white half-timbered house. Ochsenhausen Monastery had the choir extensively renovated in the 18th century. The large stucco reliefs under the ceiling show the four evangelists. It is not known who created the monogram with Mary. The altarpiece of the high altar from around 1500 is attributed to Johann Georg Bergmüller, who was the director of the academy.

Economy and Infrastructure
Immenstaad was almost predominantly agricultural until the 20th century , with the cultivation of wine forming the economic basis. The vines of 14 families with 34 hectares in Immenstaad are developed and marketed on a cooperative basis (Hagnau). Other vineyards are cultivated by the margrave (Salem).
The Kirchberger Schlossberg with around 18 hectares of vineyards is a special individual location. In 1925, the manager and master viticulturist Johann Baptist Röhrenbach planted the then new Müller-Thurgau grape variety for the first time against the will of the Margrave of Baden , which has since become the epitome of Lake Constance white wine . His son Albert Röhrenbach rowed together with Gottfried Ainser in the fishing boat one night in April 1925 from Hagnau to Ermatingen and back and smuggled 400 grafted vines from the Arenenberg winery to Hagnau.
Today, Pinot Noir, Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Blanc are grown here on the gravel soil that was left over from glaciers from the Ice Age.
Agriculture still plays an important role today. In addition to the cultivation of wine, fruit cultivation has recently become more important.
The establishment of the Dornier works played a special role after the Second World War . Today companies like Airbus Defense and Space (formerly Astrium and Cassidian ), ND SatCom and Bosch Software Innovations are mainly located on the eastern edge of Immenstaad.
After the Immenstaad landing stage was opened as a steamboat landing stage in 1875, Immenstaad was easier to reach by boat, but tourism took off very slowly. In 1926 almost 3,000 spa guests were counted. Tourism has been an important economic factor since the middle of the 20th century. In 2009, 316,000 overnight stays were registered.
Immenstaad is the berth of a replica shop that is available for tours. There is also a beach and indoor pool, the Aquastaad, and the “adventure park” with a large high ropes course . This is divided into courses with eleven levels of difficulty at a height of up to 10 meters between trees.
The Immenstaader Apple Walk provides information about apple cultivation at 21 stations. The approximately six kilometer long hiking trail leads through the Immenstaad districts and fruit-growing areas with views of the lake and mountains.
Immenstaad also has marinas, campsites and a skate park.
The Stephan Brodmann School is a primary school in Immenstaad . Up to the end of the 2006/2007 school year, a secondary school with a Werkrealschule was connected, but it was closed due to falling student numbers. The community also operates five kindergartens , one of which is in the Kippenhausen district.
