Larger districts are:

  • Auernheim is located on the Hahnenkamm (634 meters above sea level) and has about 700 inhabitants. This former free farming village was likely to have originated in the 6th to 8th centuries, but it was first mentioned in 1057/75. Auernheim is the highest town in Middle Franconia. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. Georg on the Kirchberg, which offers a panoramic view of the Weißenburger Bay , the Altmühlalb , the Ries and, on Föhnt days, as far as the Alps, is one of the most beautiful churches in the area. It has extraordinary peasant baroque gallery paintings with scenes from the life of Jesus, which the painter Johann Jakob Brenner created in 1680.
  • Bubenheim is located directly on the Altmühl (420 to 440 meters above sea level) and stretches around the Bubenheimer Berg , on which types of rock from the Ries ejection ( meteorite impact fifteen million years ago) can be found. The place has around 410 inhabitants. It was mentioned as early as the 8th century, because in 792 Charlemagne visited Bubenheim on the occasion of the construction of the Carolina fossa . There is an airfield near the village .
  • Dietfurt in Middle Franconia has around 450 inhabitants, forms the entrance to the Altmühltal and is at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level.

In the Middle Ages, the marshals of Pappenheim were among the most important landlords .
  • Falbenthal lies at an altitude of 520  m above sea level. NHN and was first mentioned in 1250 as "Walwental" owned by the Wülzburg monastery . Since the name of the place can be explained as a field name ("Siedlung ifdasm pale valley"), it was probably not founded before the 12th century. With the Wülzburg monastery, the place also came into the possession of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach at the end of the 14th century . In 1608 they enfeoffed Hans von Buchholz zu Helfenberg with Falbenthal. In 1642 the estate was acquired by Colonel Johann von Leubelfing . Today the former manor house only serves as a residential building.
  • Graben : Das kleine (about 200 inhabitants), 410  m above sea level. NHN located village takes its name from the Karlsgraben ( Fossa Carolina ), of which earth walls and excavations still testify here today.

The village lies at the foot of the Nagelberg , on the plateau of which there is a so-called witch's dance place.
  • Grönhart lies at an altitude of 425  m above sea level. NHN on a height of alluvial sand, from which the place derives its name (settlement on the sandy forest). Since this is also a field name, the place is likely to have originated in the 11th or 12th century. It was first mentioned in documents in 1251. The local knight family died out in the 13th century. In the following centuries, the Wülzburg Monastery, the Wiriche von Treuchtlingen and the Marshals von Pappenheim were well off there. The main European watershed is in the immediate vicinity of the village . A fountain was set up there in 1984, which discharges its water into two rivulets. One flows over the Altmühl to the Danube , the other over the Swabian Rezat to the Main and Rhine .
  • Gundelsheim has about 500 inhabitants and is located in the Möhrenbachtal (460 to 480 meters above sea level). The place was first mentioned in 1065 and has a small church with baroque furnishings. The marble quarry is geologically interesting. There, ejecta rocks from the Ries are visible on the limestone, which at the time prompted American astronauts to pay a visit to Gundelsheim during their geological training in the Nördlinger Ries in August 1970. This marble was used, for example, in Berlin's Tempelhof Airport .
  • Haag lies at an altitude of 515  m above sea level. NHN and was first mentioned in 1214 as a property of Marshal von Pappenheim. Since 1360 the goods but the monastery of St. Walburg in Eichstaett heard and the marshals only the Bailiwick law exercised, it is probably because of this ownership that the place in the 12th century was established by the monastery of St. Walburg. The name means "at the enclosed place". On a ledge lie the remains of a castle that is said to have been destroyed by Ludwig the Strict in 1263 .
  • Möhren is located in the Möhrenbach valley ( 455  m above sea level ) and has around 580 inhabitants. The former castle of the Counts of Pappenheim and the Roman Catholic parish church of the Assumption of Mary with its rich baroque furnishings are worth seeing .

In 1596 the marshals of Pappenheim-Treuchtlingen were the owners, from whom the place passed to the margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach. The school building from 1813, in which teaching was carried out until 1932, is worth seeing.
Schambach near Treuchtlingen, Willibald's Church
  • Schambach is located near Treuchtlingen at the entrance to the scenic Schambachtal (411 to 520 meters above sea level) and has around 700 inhabitants. Excavations have shown that people have always settled at this conveniently located location. "Scammaha" was first mentioned in a document in 802. The church goes back to a Willibald church that already existed in the 8th century . Its compact structure barely towers above the houses in the town center.
  • Schlittenhart was first mentioned in 1306 when Count Ulrich von Truhendingen sold the place "Slitenhart" to the knight Konrad von Rechenberg. Since 1486 the hamlet belonged to the monastery Heidenheim and with this later the margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach.
  • Unterheumödern , probably originated in the 12th century, was first mentioned in 1286 when the Wülzburg monastery granted Ulrich von Mittelburg income from the Möhrenberg, Wolfhausen and "haemedern" estates, which it had previously received from him. Later it belonged to the Teutonic Order in Ellingen , then Wirich and Ulrich von Treuchtlingen. In the 15th century the hamlet was pledged to the St. Klara monastery in Nuremberg . In 1596 the Marshal von Pappenheim-Treuchtlingen, and later the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, owned two farms and a house to "Vndterheumödern".

It was assigned to the Wülzburg monastery in the 13th century. During the renovation in 1958, frescoes from around 1058 came to light. The shrine altar from 1515 is worth seeing.
Windischhausen Heumoedern
  • Windischhausen is embedded in the delightful eastern Rohrbach valley ( 480  m above sea level ) and has around 150 inhabitants. It was first mentioned in documents in 1057 when the first church was consecrated. Over time, the Counts of Treuchtlingen, Wülzburg Monastery, Rebdorf Monastery and Heidenheim were wealthy there. The place name is probably derived from the ethnic group of the Slavs (Windisch = Slavic).

Dialect geography

Treuchtlingen is located in an area in which East Franconian and Bavarian dialect features mix. To the west of Treuchtlingen, the East Franconian and Bavarian dialects also meet Swabian , which is why the three-tribe corner is often used . To the west of Treuchtlingen, traffic communities gradually cleared into the woods, whose linguistic peculiarities only arose after the so-called migration of peoples in the Middle Ages and in the early modern period.


Until the 19th century

The village is one of the oldest settlements in the Treuchtlingen area. The Celts , Romans and Franks have left their cultural traces. Interdisciplinary research by the Technical University of Berlin from 2010 sees the Setuacotum, historically documented by Claudius Ptolemy , as the predecessor of Treuchtlingen. Under Carolingian rule, the Karlsgraben was built north of the city center in the district of Graben in 793 as the first waterway between the Rhine / Main and the Danube . The city itself was first mentioned in 899 (as Drutelinga ). In 1044 Agnes was married to Emperor Heinrich III. mentioned. The first castle, also known as the Upper Veste , was built around the middle of the 12th century . The castle ruins have been preserved since the mid-1970s by the Fördergemeinschaft Burg Treuchtlingen e. V. supervised. Around the year 1400 Treuchtlingen was raised to market , in 1495 it was largely destroyed by a major fire. After the death of Gottfried Heinrichs Graf zu Pappenheim in the battle of Lützen in 1632 and the extinction of the Treuchtlinger line after the death of his son Wolf Adam in a duel with Martin Maximilian von der Goltz , Treuchtlingen fell to the Margraves of Ansbach in 1647 , after mediation it became in 1809 Part of the Kingdom of Bavaria .

Until the 19th century, Treuchtlingen was a handicraft-oriented market town. The Treuchtlinger Hafner were known, the "Treuchtlinger crockery" was of national importance. Furthermore, the "Leonische Tressen - und Seidenmanufaktur " existed since 1774 and sold their goods worldwide. The construction of the first railway line Munich - Ingolstadt -Treuchtlingen - Gunzenhausen in 1869 and the associated infrastructure brought about a rapid upswing and made Treuchtlingen a railway town . The first hospital was built around 1875. The population increased by 2,000 this year to more than 3000 in 1895. 1898 Treuchtlingen received by Prince Regent Luitpold the city charter .

20th and 21st centuries

From 1917, the meritorious, non-party mayor Emil Sommer , a son of the printing company owner of the same name, was in office in Grünstadt . He was expelled in 1933 because of his partial Jewish descent. On February 23, 1945 at around 11:00 a.m. there was an air raid on Treuchtlingen train station ( Operation Clarion ), in which the SF 2046 front holiday train stopped. The passengers of the train fled into the platform underpass, which received a direct hit. 300 people died in the platform underpass, a total of almost 600 people were killed and another 900 injured in the station and the surrounding area. Most of the bomb victims are buried in the Memorial of the War Graves Commission on the Nagelberg . A marble plaque commemorates the victims in the underpass, which has been tunneling under the tracks at a different location since the station was renovated in 2004. In a second attack on April 11, 1945, no people were killed, but among other things a Bavarian G 3/4 H steam locomotive was destroyed. Part of the wreck was found during the renovation and is now in the Bavarian Railway Museum in Nördlingen .


On April 1, 1971, the previously independent communities of Bubenheim and Graben were incorporated. On July 1, 1971, Grönhart and Schambach joined them. Part of the dissolved municipality of Haag near Treuchtlingen followed on January 1, 1972. From the dissolved district of Gunzenhausen , Auernheim, Wettelsheim and Windischhausen were finally added on July 1, 1972, and Gundelsheim and Möhren from the dissolved district of Donauwörth . Dietfurt completed the series of incorporations on May 1, 1978.

To the origin of the place name

According to an older thesis, the personal name Truhtilo is in the place name Treuchtlingen . The reason students were therefore used to learn the little verse: "From Truhtilo the Alemanni (also Alamanni ) has Treuchtlingen . His name" Legend has it that after the Limes breakthrough of the Alemanni around 233 AD Alemanni groups at a ford of the.. Altmühl have settled. This later became "The village of Truhtilo ", Truhtiolingen and finally Treuchtlingen .

This personal name is nowhere used. According to Joachim Grzega , it can be assumed that the originally unknown form of the name was based on the word * truht 'Bündnis' and later on the word triu 'treu' (such forms of folk etymology can also be found in other place names).

The Jewish community

Jewish cemetery in Treuchtlingen, 2011

Jews lived in Treuchtlingen from the Middle Ages to the 20th century (1939). A first mention is made in connection with the persecution during the plague time of 1348/49, which also affected the local Jews. The development of the modern community goes back to the 17th / 18th centuries. Century back. In the course of the 18th century, one of the most important Jewish communities in Bavaria came into being in Treuchtlingen . The number of Jewish residents peaked in 1837 with 288 people (17.7 percent of a total of 1,590 inhabitants). Around 1925 there were 115 parishioners. Several Jewish associations shaped the community life. The Jewish families owned numerous commercial and industrial enterprises with considerable economic importance for the city. Today, almost only the Jewish cemetery is a reminder of centuries of Jewish history in the city, especially the memorial stone that has been erected there since 1990 and commemorates the local Jewish victims of the Shoah . Since 2009, a memorial stele next to the former Judenstadel , today's city library, has been commemorating all Jewish families who once lived in Treuchtlingen.

The station belongs to the transport association for the greater Nuremberg area . It has been extensively modernized and is currently served by regional trains in BayernTakt as well as by individual InterCity and InterCityExpress trains (as of July 2011).

Gravel is currently only loaded irregularly in Treuchtlingen.

The Nuremberg Airport is around 75 kilometers away; there is also a landing site in Treuchtlingen-Bubenheim .

IT infrastructure with free software

In 2001, the city administration of Treuchtlingen, with Heinz-Markus Gräsing as IT manager, became the first city in Germany to convert its infrastructure to free software . At this point in time, the switch was still very difficult because the IT industry was not prepared for it. Three years later, on November 24, 2004, the companies involved celebrated the three-year existence of the new infrastructure under the title 1000 Days of Tux . At this point in time, the mayor, as one of the greatest critics , admitted for the first time that he would take the step again and support the migration from now on. From the migration efforts of the city of Treuchtlingen and the resulting open government platform, many collaborations developed with which other city administrations could be supported in this step.
