Introduction

Esslingen (COA) blue

     Esslingen is a district (Kreis) in the centre of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Neighboring districts are (from north clockwise) Rems-Murr, Göppingen, Reutlingen, Böblingen and the district-free city Stuttgart.

     The district dates back to the Oberamt Esslingen, which was created when the previously free imperial city Esslingen became part of Württemberg in 1803. After several changes over the next century, it was converted into a district in 1938. Additionally, it was enlarged by adding several municipalities from the neighboring Amtsoberamt Stuttgart, Oberamt Schorndorf, Kirchheim unter Teck and Göppingen.

In 1973, the district was merged with the district Nürtingen (without Grafenberg). In 1975, two municipalities from the district Böblingen were added to give the district today's borders.

     The district is cut into two halves by the river Neckar. The west part is part of the Filder plain, while the east is part of the mountains of the Swabian Alb (Schwäbische Alb).

     The coat of arms (as seen above), shows the imperial eagle taken from the coat of arms of the city of Esslingen. The checkered diamonds in the bottom are the symbol of the Dukes of Teck, and the horn on the breast of the eagle is the symbol of the Counts of Urach. Both symbols were taken from the coat of arms of the district of Nürtingen, as the two families played a mayor role in the history of the area.

ESSLINGEN-AM-NECKAR

LOCATION: STATE: Baden-Wurttemberg;  REGION: Stuttgart; DISTRICT: Esslingen;  STADT: Esslingen-am-Neckar

Coordinate: 48° 44′ 0″ N, 9° 19′ 0″ E; Decimal: 48.733333°, 9.316667°.  From: Frankfurt Au Maim Airport 60549;  To: Esslingen-am-Neckar 73728; Total Est. Time: 1 hour, 56 minutes Total Est. Distance: 135.33 miles,  (see map in “Image Gallery”)

 DESCRIPTION:    Esslingen am Neckar is a city in the Stuttgart Region of Baden-Württemberg, Germany, capital of the District of Esslingen as well as the largest city in the district. It is located on the river Neckar, about 14 km south-east of Stuttgart city center. The surrounding regions are also mostly developed around the city of Esslingen.       The first human settlements root back to about 1000 B.C. Esslingen was first mentioned in 777 as Ezelinga in the last will of Abbot Fulrad from Saint-Denis (near Paris), the chaplain of Pippin and Charlemagne. He bequeaths the church sixth cell upon the river Neckar to his monastery Saint-Denis. He also brought the bones of Saint Vitalis to Esslingen, which made it a target for pilgrimage and led to its growth.       Around 800 Esslingen becomes a market town, its market rights being certified in 866. In 949953 it appears in the possession of Liudolf, Duke of Swabia. Esslingen received city rights in 1229, and was first mentioned as an Imperial city in 1298.       The time between the 13th century and 16th century saw many conflicts between the Free Imperial City and the State  of Badenwuerttemberg. About half the population lost their  lives in the Thirty Years War between 1618 and 1648 by either hungar or epedemics. Esslingen lost its independence as an Imperial city in 1803, becoming part of the Duchy of Württemberg.        The beginning of 19th Century was characterized by industrialisation for Esslingen. A glove manufacturing industry, a food proceesing industry, a textile industry and a metal working industry were started. On 20 November 1845 the first train from Cannstatt to Esslingen was introduced.       In 1945, during World War II, Esslingen was occupied by U.S. soldiers, thereby being spared much of the damage caused by World War II.       After the Second World War, about 47,000 people (mostly refugees and displaced persons from the Eastern Germany) moved into Esslingen. There were settlements in Oberesslingen and Zollberg, in order to overcome the shortage of housing.       In 1973 Esslingen am Neckar became seat of the newly enlarged county of Nürtingen now called county of Esslingen.

HEGENSBERG

LOCATION: STATE: Baden-Wurttemberg;  REGION: Stuttgart; DISTRICT: Esslingen;  STADT: Esslingen-Am-Neckar

48° 45' 0" North, 9° 20' 0" East. See directions to Esslingen-am-Neckar.

DESCRIPTION: The village of Hegensberg was originally located in the Duchy of Württemberg, (formerly known as Wirtemberg).   Württemberg, became a Kingdom after the fall of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806.  Its traditional capital was Stuttgart.        Historically Hegensburg conflicted with Esslingen-Am-Neckar as that city was not a part of Wurttemburg.  Hegensberg was closely tied to nearby Oberesslingen because both belonged to Wurttemberg.  There are still some relicts in modern Esslingen reflecting those old conflicts. One example is the "Hegensberger Kirchweg" (churchway of Hegensberg), now called Potsdamer Straße, a path connecting Hegensberg in a straight line to the church of Oberesslingen.  Hegensberg and Oberesslingen both belonged to Württemberg but were separated by Esslingen territory.  Thus the Kirchweg was created as an exterritorial zone allowing the people of Hegensberg to visit the church in Oberesslingen without having to cross the border twice on a distance of one mile.       The closest airport to Hegensberg  is in Stuttgart, located 10.6 km to the south west.  Other populated places near Hegensberg,  are as follows: // 0.0km to Liebersbronn // 0.0km to Sankt Bernhardt // 0.0km to Wiflingshausen // 1.2km to Kennenburg // 1.2km to Serach // 1.2km to Wäldenbronn // 1.9km to Oberesslingen // 2.2km to Obertal // 2.2km to Kimmichsweiler // 2.2km to Lobenrot // 2.4km to Esslingen // 2.4km to Hohenacker // 2.4km to Sulzgries // 3.7km to Sirnau // 3.7km to Stetten // 3.9km to Berkheim // 3.1km to Krummenacker // 3.1km to Schanbach // 3.1km to Zell am Neckar // 4.4km to Nellingen auf den Fildern // 4.4km to Strümpfelbach // 3.7km to Mettingen // 3.7km to Obertürkheim // 5.7km to Rommelshausen // 4.1km to Rüdern // 4.1km to Uhlbach // 4.1km to Altbacherhof // 4.1km to Altbach // 5.2km to Deizisau [all distances 'as the bird flies' and approximate].
