Liggeringen was first mentioned in 806 as Lütteringen . The place name Liutegarninga , first mentioned in an unadulterated imperial document from November 28, 946, suggests that the founder was an Alemannic named Liutger. In 1939 five Merovingian graves were found at Hof Röhrnang, which an Alemannic foundation in the 6./7. Century suggest.
The place belonged to the Reichenau monastery early on , but the lords or the Maier von Liggeringen existed as noble free ones until 1135. The lower court was partially pledged to the Lords of Bodman , who finally owned the place and the bailiwick from the 16th century. From 1744 to 1774 the place was temporarily pledged to the Heilig-Geist-Spital Konstanz (today: Spitalstiftung Konstanz ). In 1806 the place came to Baden and in 1807 it was assigned to the district office of Konstanz .
At the time of National Socialism , Liggeringen was a stronghold of the NSDAP . In the Reichstag election in July 1932, the National Socialists gained 66.1% of the vote (Baden: 36.9%, German Reich: 37.3%), followed by the Center Party with 25.1%.
On June 21, 1943, Liggeringen was the scene of a British night bombing. It claimed eight lives. That day the Royal Air Force flew an attack on Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH in Friedrichshafen. One of the 60 launched bombers had lost touch with the others and avoided the massive air defense before reaching the target to the south. In order to be able to land safely again, he got rid of his bomb load over the village of Liggeringen.
