Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Bavaria  /  Swabia  /  Nesselwang
Nesselwang is a municipality in the district of Ostallgäu in Bavaria in Germany. It is an oft photographed market town and tourist resort at the foot of the Alps in Allgäu. It consists of the market (Nesselwang) as well as 17 surrounding hamlets (Gschwend, Hörich, Reichenbach, Bayerstetten, Wank, Hertingen, Attlesee, Schneidbach, Hammerschmiede, Lachen, Niederhöfen, Rindegg, Thal, Schicken, Schneidbach, Voglen and Widdumhof).HistoryIn Roman times there was a road connecting Via Claudia Augusta with the Roman town of Cambodunum . This road passed through the area now occupied by Nesselwang however there is no evidence of Roman occupation in the town.In 1059 the Emperor Heinrich IV borrowed from the Bishop of Augsburg with the area including Nesselwang as security. This loan was not paid back and so the area became part of the estates of the Bishop of Augsburg.The first mention of Nesselwang was in 1302, in the form Nesselwach, although both the settlement and the name are probably older than this.The castle in the south of Nesselwang was maybe already built in the 11th century but the name Nesselburg was first mentioned in 1302.The town received the right to hold a market from King Sigismund in 1429. The document conferring this right is now in the Bavarian State Archive in Munich.In 1582 Nesselwang received its own coat of arms and seal from Bishop Marquard from Berg. This allowed the town to seal documents and is an indices for a certain amount of self-government under the rule of the Augsburger Bishops.In the years between 1500 and 1800 the history of Nesselwang was continuously effected by the wars then being fought in Europe. A quote from the owner of the Hotel Bären in 1796 is seen as expressing the general feeling during this time, It could be translated as „Please God, let things soon be different!“
