Today's political municipality Wetzikon consists of the former civil parishes of Robenhausen, Robank , Kempten , Ettenhausen , Ober- and Unterwetzikon , Stegen, Walfershausen and the district of Medikon.


The Robenhausen area was settled as early as the Neolithic . In 1943 the remains of a dugout canoe that had not been dated to this day were found in the Robenhauser Ried, and in 2002 the remains of a settlement of the bell beaker culture (2500–2200 BC) were found. Two Bronze Age pendants were found in Robenhausen-Himmerich . Thanks to the neighboring prehistoric site of Robenhausen , Wetzikon is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Prehistoric Pile Dwellings around the Alps .


The primary school Robenhausen is located in Robenhausen as an elementary school (grades 1-6). There is also a Rudolf Steiner School in Robenhausen.
