Division of space

According to data from the State Statistical Office , as of 2014.


The predecessor communities Korntal and Münchingen were assigned to the new district of Leonberg , which emerged from the former Oberamt Leonberg, during the administrative reform during the Nazi era in Württemberg in 1938 . In 1945 the places became part of the American zone of occupation and thus belonged to the newly founded state of Württemberg-Baden , which was incorporated into the current state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952. In 1973 the district reform took place in Baden-Württemberg , when Korntal and Münchingen became part of the Ludwigsburg district.

The current city of Korntal-Münchingen was established on January 1st, 1975, when the city of Korntal and the municipality of Münchingen were merged to form the new city of Korntal-Münchingen as part of the Baden-Württemberg municipal reform. In 1986, Südstraße was put into operation as a partial bypass. In 1998 the Linwiesen industrial estate was developed , and in 1999 the residential area Rührberg II .


The Korntal district was first mentioned in a document in 1297 in the statutes of the Canons of Sindelfingen . Korntal was a manor until 1819 and belonged to the community of Weil im Dorf (today Stuttgart-Weilimdorf) in the Württemberg Oberamt Leonberg . In 1819 the Korntal congregation was founded by the Korntal Evangelical Brothers Congregation as a civil-religious community. In connection with the construction of the Great Hall, King Wilhelm I of Württemberg granted the congregation a privilege, i.e. certain special rights - among other things, all residents had to be members of the Brethren congregation. The place lost this status with the establishment of the German Empire in 1871 and finally in 1919 with the constitution of the Weimar Republic .

In 1868 it was connected to the railway network ( Black Forest Railway Zuffenhausen – Calw). Due to the imperial constitution, the place lost the status of a privileged community in 1919. On June 30, 1958, the municipality of Korntal was elevated to a town.

During the Thirty Years War in 1643 a large part of the town center was destroyed; the town hall, which was only built in 1599, was rebuilt in 1687, the Protestant Johanneskirche was rebuilt from 1645 to 1650. The school was first rebuilt in 1645, then rebuilt in 1743 and 1744. In 1718 Münchingen came to the Ludwigsburg office . In 1733 Regina Catharina von Münchingen sold the castle property to August Friedrich von Harling . When the new administrative structure in the Kingdom of Württemberg was implemented , the municipality was assigned to the Leonberg District Office between 1810 and 1812 . In 1906 Münchingen received a rail connection with the Strohgäubahn , a diesel-powered, single-track regional train from Korntal to Weissach . In 1920, the settlement of the Kallenberg district began . In 1997 and 2006, the renovation of the town center began.
