Location of Wiflingshausen in Esslingen am Neckar

Wiflingshausen is a district of Esslingen am Neckar in the northeast of the city. Wiflingshausen was first mentioned as a hamlet around 1280. The place name is derived from the personal name Wüfling (wolf). The population in this district has grown rapidly over the past few decades.


The contact person for the issues of the district for the city administration and the municipal council of Esslingen is the citizens' committee St. Bernhard, Kennenburg, Wiflingshausen . At the district level, the citizens' committee helps shape community life. He is a member of the working group of citizens 'committees , which exists to exchange experiences and coordinate the individual citizens' committees of the city. The basis for the working method and the structure of the citizens' committee and the working group is the status adopted by the working group on February 21, 1991 . An agreement was reached as the basis for the cooperation between the citizens' committee, the municipal council and the administration . This was approved by the working group on July 17, 1990 and approved by the municipal council on December 10, 1990. In June 2000, both the status and the agreement were editorially revised.

In the public citizens 'meeting held by the city of Esslingen on July 18, 2019 in the Sängerkranzgaststätte in St. Bernhardt, the St. Bernhardt, Kennenburg, Wiflingshausen citizens' committee was elected for three years.


The Dulkhäusle is located at Römerstraße 16, presumably the oldest social democratic memorial in Germany. The wooden refuge with a red tiled hipped roof was built in the 19th century. It served Albert Dulk as a retreat from 1880 to 1884 . After Dulk's death, Württemberg Social Democrats and freethinkers donated a high relief with his portrait, adorned with a bronze laurel wreath and two inscription panels, set in a profiled frame in the neo-Renaissance style . Only the bust from the workshop of Adolf von Donndorf has survived . The Dulkhäusle was demolished in 2011 because it was in disrepair and then rebuilt. In 1966 the “Steile Gasse” was renamed Dulkweg on the initiative of the culturally conservative philosopher Kurt Port, who lived in Wiflingshausen.
