coat of arms

The coat of arms of Nusshof dates from 1945. It shows a two-leaved green hazel branch with three red hazelnuts on a white background. The community decided in favor of the hazelnut because it fits the place name and is easy to depict heraldically.


In 1372 the land belonged to the Olsberg Monastery . In the late Middle Ages, a small village came into being that fell under the rule of the city of Basel in 1461. It is believed that a conspicuous tree gave the settlement its name. The first documentary mention comes from the year 1504 as the farm by dem Nussbom.


Until 2010 Nusshof had its own primary school with multi-class lessons. After that, the school was merged with that of Wintersingen , where lessons now take place.
