The former municipality of Stahringen is now a district of Radolfzell on Lake Constance and at the same time the name of the former glider airfield, meanwhile the special airfield Radolfzell-Stahringen (ICAO abbreviation: EDSR) north of the development of Stahringen on the border with Stockach and Bodman.


Early days

The district of Stahringen was already a settlement area in prehistoric times: Since 1977 readings made on flint tools on the hillside below the Homburg castle ruins at around 455  m above sea level date from the Middle and Neolithic Age . NHN and from a north-facing foothill of the Mühlberg.

Indeterminable ceramic fragments from excavations in the 1970s in the "Marktbach" area below the Böhler Mountains (today industrial area) come from a prehistoric settlement of unknown time and are on permanent loan in the Hegau Archaeological Museum in the historic Singen Castle .

In the "Oberes Weidfeld" area there was a mineral soil settlement from the Early to Middle Bronze Age, possibly the Iron Age, which is now destroyed by gravel mining. The bronze and iron finds were acquired by the Museum Überlingen in 1888/89.

From the year 1846 there is a possibly Roman reading find from Homburg.

middle Ages

The place was first mentioned in 1127 as Stalringen . The Bishop of Constance had possessions .

The Konstanz ministerial sold the place in 1565 to the Lords of Bodman .

In 1614 it came to the monastery of St. Gallen and in 1744/49 it fell back to the Bishop of Constance. Nellenburg held the blood spell .

Modern times

In 1805 the place fell to Baden, the Nellenburg rights were in dispute with Württemberg. Until 1810, Stahringen was the seat of a sub-office within the Bohlingen office, before the Stockach office came to be, from which the Stockach district emerged in 1939 . When it was dissolved in 1973, the place became part of the Constance district.

As part of the community reform, the community of Stahringen was incorporated into the city of Radolfzell on January 1, 1974 .


  • At 635.3  m above sea level, above Stahringen, the Homburg served as the seat of the Lords of Homburg for a long time. The castle itself is located on a mountain spur that descends steeply towards the village. Over the centuries the massive castle fell into disrepair like many other Hegau castles and was finally abandoned.
  • The Church of St. Zeno was built on Böhlerberg in 1835 and is equipped with bells by Friedrich Wilhelm Schilling .
  • The French special ammunition depot Radolfzell-Stahringen (coordinates: 47 ° 46 ′ 58.8 ″  N , 8 ° 56 ′ 54.2 ″  E ) was the most southerly nuclear weapons depot on German soil. From 1960, atomic warheads for the artillery unit 302ème Groupe d'Artillerie of the II Corps (FR) stationed in Radolfzell were stored here. The association was equipped with the MGR-1 Honest John short-range missile . When France left the integrated command structure of NATO on July 1, 1966, the camp was cleared and all buildings demolished.
