Location of Wenden in Baden-Württemberg
Evangelical Church in Wenden
The district area covers 368 hectares and is predominantly characterized by red sandstone . Around 200 hectares are forested. Wenden is between 537 and 610 meters above sea level.
The small church has a tower clad with wooden shingles, which makes the church unique in the area. The historical bakery next door is also inviting for a tour.
The place was first mentioned in a document in 1406. The spelling “Winden” or “Wynna” was also used in earlier times. The name suggests a possible foundation in the Carolingian period when Charlemagne had settled the Slavic Wends in other parts of his empire.
In the course of the community reform on January 1, 1975, the previously independent community of Wenden was combined with Ebershardt , Rotfelden and Ebhausen to form the entire community of Ebhausen.
