Geographical location

Riedlingen lies in a wide valley area of ​​the Danube, at the southern foot of the Swabian Alb. In the west and north it reaches the Alb foothills to the completely wooded Teutschbuch (734 m) and to Österberg (652 m). In the east, within sight of Riedlingen, the Upper Swabian local mountain Bussen (767 m) rises , which is also known as the “Holy Mountain of Upper Swabia ”.

On the left bank of the river at Altheim the Biber , at Riedlingen the Zollhauser Bach and at Zwiefaltendorf the Zwiefalter Aach flow into the Danube. On the right-hand side, the river takes in the Schwarzach at Vöhringer Hof and the Kanzach at Daugendorf.

City structure

The city initially consists of the core city , plus the seven municipalities Bechingen , Daugendorf , Grüningen , Neufra , Pflummer , Zell and Zwiefaltendorf , which were incorporated as part of the municipal reform in the 1970s . Each sub-community has a local administration, each under the direction of a local mayor .

Spatial planning

Riedlingen, row of houses on the mill canal

Riedlingen forms a middle center within the Donau-Iller region , the upper center of which is the city of Ulm. In addition to the municipality itself, the central area of ​​Riedlingen includes the towns and municipalities of the western district of Biberach. In detail, these are the city of Bad Buchau and the communities of Alleshausen, Altheim, Betzenweiler, Dürmentingen, Dürnau, Ertingen, Kanzach, Langenenslingen, Moosburg, Oggelshausen, Seekirch, Tiefenbach, Unlingen and Uttenweiler.


Middle Ages and early modern times

Riedlingen is probably an Alemannic foundation. The first written mention comes from the year 835. The medieval town was laid out between 1247 and 1255 east of the hamlet by the Counts of Veringen . It was a typical founding town in a rectangular shape and with streets running at right angles; the main street became wider and wider towards the market square. Riedlingen's location on the Donaustraße, which was already widely used at that time, favored this location as a market town. At the end of the 13th century, the city came into the possession of the Habsburgs , but they soon pledged it again. In 1314 it came to the Counts of Hohenberg , later to the Lords of Ellerbach, and in 1384 to the Truchsessen von Waldburg . In 1434 the city received the blood spell , d. H. the right to try and execute criminals.

The Reformation in the 16th century initially had strong popular support, but could not prevail against the will of the Waldburg rule. From 1522 to 1525 the Constance reformer Johannes Zwick worked as a pastor in the village. He stood up for the poor and those without rights, but was dismissed and expelled by the bishop and an imperial decree. From 1654 to 1658 a Capuchin monastery ( Kapuzinerkloster Riedlingen ) was built in Riedlingen , which was closed again around 1806. In 1680, the city, together with the other so-called Danube cities, managed to free itself from the unpopular Waldburg rule and to be directly subordinate to Austria again. Until the Peace of Pressburg in 1805, Riedlingen was therefore part of Upper Austria .

Riedlingen was also affected by the persecution of witches from 1585 to 1604 . Three people were executed in the course of a witch trial ; the last execution took place in 1604 against Agatha Mahler.

Württemberg time

Kingdom, first postage stamp, issue 1851, with blue cancellation 'RIEDLINGEN'

After the Peace of Pressburg , Riedlingen became part of the Kingdom of Württemberg , which was founded in 1806, and became the seat of the upper office of the same name . In 1870, with the construction of the Ulm – Sigmaringen railway line, it was connected to the Württemberg railway network . In 1873 Christian Schmidt and Heinrich Stoll founded the predecessor company of what would later become NSU Motorenwerke , the “mechanical workshop for the production of knitting machines”. It was relocated to Neckarsulm in 1880 , as there was a lack of space and energy in Riedlingen.

In the administrative reforms during the Nazi era in Württemberg the Oberamt Riedlingen was in 1934 county Riedlingen renamed and in 1938 with the county Saulgau for district Saulgau based in Saulgau merged. The city ​​of Riedlingen survived the Second World War almost unscathed - at least from an architectural point of view. Only the Danube bridge was blown up in the last days of the war in April 1945, shortly before French troops marched in.

Post-war until today

After the Second World War, the city of Riedlingen fell into the French occupation zone and thus came to the newly founded state of Württemberg-Hohenzollern in 1947 , which in 1952 became the administrative district of South Württemberg-Hohenzollern in the state of Baden-Württemberg.

The aftermath of World War II had a profound social impact. In October 1949, after a five-year stopover in Lower Bavaria, expellees came to Riedlingen. These were descendants of German emigrants who had to give up their home in southwest Hungary in 1944. By the summer of 1951, the new district of Eichenau was built above the Vöhringerhof .

Due to the district reform in Baden-Württemberg , Riedlingen and the surrounding area have been part of the Biberach district since 1973 . In the course of the municipal reform in Baden-Württemberg , the previously independent municipalities Daugendorf (May 1, 1972), Neufra (June 1, 1972) and - on October 1, 1974 - Bechingen, Grüningen, Pflummer, Zell and Zwiefaltendorf were incorporated into Riedlingen .

History of the districts

The districts are:

Bechingen Bechingen
was mentioned in a document as early as 758. Between 1292 and 1342, the entire town gradually came to the Zwiefalten monastery , to which it belonged until the secularization of 1803. Together with Zell, it then forms an independent municipality in the Oberamt Riedlingen .

Together with Bechingen, Zell formed an independent community.

Daugendorf Daugendorf
is mentioned for the first time in 805 (often written Taugendorf in early documents ) when the place was donated to the Sankt Gallen monastery . How it later came into the possession of the Counts of Veringen is not known. In 1415 Rudolph von Veringen sold Daugendorf to Zwiefalten. After secularization, the place becomes an independent community.

Grüningen Grüningen
came to the Counts of Württemberg via the Counts of Veringen at the end of the 12th century , who established the line of the Counts of Grüningen-Landau there. The seat of the counts was the "upper castle" near the church, the keep and the foundation walls from the Romanesque period still remind of this time. The "lower castle" built on an artificial mound in the middle of the village, however, became the seat of the Grünberg ministry. Grüningen came to the barons of Hornstein around 1300 (coat of arms!), To whom it still belonged at the time of the mediatization in 1806 (estate and castle to this day), when the place (again) fell under Württemberg s rule. Grüningen also became an independent municipality afterwards.
Neufra on the Danube Neufra an der Donau
- not to be confused with the municipality in the Sigmaringen district of the same name - also written Neufrach, Neufern or Niverun in early documents, once belonged to the Lords of Gundelfingen (coat of arms of serrated sloping beams), from 1546 to the Lords of Helfenstein (elephant) as well from 1627 the Prince of Fürstenberg . There were two locks in the area. The pastor of Neufra, which became an independent parish in 1806, still obtained the so-called "Springhaber" in 1827 in the amount of three 'Simri' oats, which citizens had to pay for illegitimate impulses.
Plowing Pflummers
was once the seat of the lords of Pflummers who have been documented since 1183. These were ministerials of the Counts of Veringen . Peregrünus von Pflimmern is said to have lived in 1180. The uninterrupted line of trunks begins in 1280 with Conrad von Pflimmern. In 1302, Count Mangold handed over the castle and other goods to the Reichenau monastery. In 1311 the castle was returned to the Counts of Veringen. In the same year, Count Wolfrad von Veringen sold the castle to the knight H. Fleck. The parent company in Pflimmern was destroyed in 1350. The family of the Lords of Pflummer spread in the Swabian imperial cities. Individual lines settled in Kanzach , Seekirch , Biberach , Augsburg , Konstanz , Überlingen and Freiburg im Breisgau and played an outstanding role in the history of these cities. For example: Heinrich von Pflimmern (1475–1561), chronicler of the Reformation period; Joachim von Pflimmern (* 1480), chronicler of the pre-Reformation period; Johann Ernst von Pflimmern (* 1588), author of the "Annales Biberacenses"; Salome von Pflimmern (1591 / 1592–1654), first prioress of the Benedictine abbey in Fulda; Karl von Pflimmern (1787–1850), Bavarian major general. The archive of the city of Überlingen contains news about the lineage from 1330 to 1792. In 1882 the line of the lords of Pflummer died out. In 1605 the town of Pflimmern was sold to Duke Friedrich von Württemberg . This made Pflimmern the only parish in the Riedlingen District Office to become Protestant . In the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648), Pflummers was sacked and depopulated, so it had to be completely repopulated; as early as 1825 it had around 500 inhabitants again. In 1829 Eduard Mörike worked for a few months as a parish administrator in Pflummer. During this time, on March 9th of that year, he is said to have created one of the most cited German-language poems with “Er ist's” . About 400 people live in Pflumper.
Zwiefaltendorf Zwiefaltendorf The
landlord of this place opposite the Zwiefalten monastery was Baron von Spät . The Michaelskirche there is mentioned as a donation in a document from the Sankt Gallen monastery in 776.
