Untereisesheim is mentioned for the first time in 767 as an Eisesheim in the Lorsch Codex . During the time of the tribal duchies, the place was in the Duchy of Franconia . In 1243 the lords of Eisesheim were named as feudal men of the lords of Weinsberg . Today's coat of arms goes back to them. In 1461 the lords of Lomersheim buy Untereisesheim. In 1529 they join the Reformation together with their subjects .

During the Thirty Years' War , the Battle of Wimpfen with thousands of dead takes place on May 6, 1622 between Bad Wimpfen, Biberach, Obereisesheim and Untereisesheim . Among other things, the Württemberg Duke Magnus falls on the side of the Protestant Union troops . In 1655 the place is sold to the Duke of Württemberg .

In 1925 only about 600 inhabitants were counted, in 1939 there were 692 and at the end of 1945 there were 790. In 1959 there were around 1000 inhabitants. With the establishment of large new development areas from around 1960, the population increased significantly: in 1973 two thousand, in 1985 three thousand and finally four thousand in 2005. In the municipal reform of the 1970s, Untereisesheim was able to maintain its independence.

Coat of arms of Untereisesheim

The Untereisesheim Heimer official seal showed from about 1,820 in the coat of arms next to the three Württemberg stag antlers a horseshoe , probably as canting arms to symbolize the place name. The horseshoe is also placed on the fountain from 1865 in front of the town hall as the local coat of arms. In 1918, the Württemberg archives department proposed the new coat of arms to the community, which has had it since 1946. The model for the coat of arms is a seal of Wilhelm von Eisesheim from 1382. The coat of arms and flag were awarded to the community on March 4, 1963 by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of the Interior.

Untereisesheim is mostly residential community. The main jobs of the residents are Heilbronn and Neckarsulm . A number of medium-sized companies have settled in the Kressgraben industrial park since around 1985.


About 90% of the slightly over 200 hectares of agricultural land are used as arable land. The number of farms in the village fell from 16 to six between 1979 and 2007. Of these (as of 2007), two are full-time businesses and four are part-time businesses.

Untereisesheim is also a traditional wine-growing place, the locations of which belong to the large Staufenberg area in the Württemberg lowlands of  the Württemberg wine-growing region . The cultivation area is very small at around 7 hectares.
