The mayor of the town is Andreas Denzel.HistoryFor many centuries, Ochsenhausen Abbey (Reichskloster Ochsenhausen), first mentioned in 1093, was a self -governing prince-abbey within the Holy Roman Empire ruled by a prince-abbot.In 1803, in the course of the German mediatisation, the abbey was secularized and erected into a secular principality that was then granted to Count Franz Georg Karl von Metternich in compensation for the loss of his immediate fiefs on the left bank of the Rhine after the whole area was annexed by revolutionary France. In 1806, the short-lived principality was annexed to the Kingdom of Württemberg, which in 1871 became part of the German Empire.The abbey still dominates the town from a hill. Ochsenhausen is sometimes called a "Baroque Kingdom of Heaven" ("Himmelreich des Barock") because of the monastic architecture. Reichsgraf erhieltAttractionsEvery year the Öchsle-Fest takes place.
