Obereschach is a district of Villingen-Schwenningen and is located on the eastern edge of the Black Forest at an altitude between 690 and 760 m.


It is believed that the place was founded by Alemannic settlers between the 7th and 8th centuries , as Alemannic graves were found in the Ebenhausen district.

Obereschach was first mentioned in a document in 1269. In the Middle Ages there were already several feudal courts, some of which are still preserved today. The place was a dependency of the coming of the Johanniter Villingen for 400 years.

On December 1, 1971, the municipality of Obereschach was incorporated into the city of Villingen in the Black Forest and is now the northernmost district of Villingen-Schwenningen.
