Gruningen

Grüningen is a village in the district of Hinwil in the canton of Zürich in Switzerland.In 1976, Grüningen received the Wakker Prize for the development and preservation of its architectural heritage.HistoryGrüningen is first mentioned in 1243 as apud Gruningin. The village of Itzikon was first mentioned in 837 as in Izinheimo and Binzikon was mentioned in 854 as in willa Pinuzzinhovun.In the Strangenholz area of the municipality, burial mounds from a Hallstatt era population have been found. The exact date that the area was settled is not known, but based on mentions of Itzikon and Binzikon from the 9th Century, settlement must have occurred in the 8th Century.In the early Middle Ages, the area belonged to the counts of Rapperswil. It then came into the possession of the Abbey of Saint Gall, which granted it in the early 13th century as a fief to the powerful Freiherrn of Regensberg, who probably built the little town and castle. Wasteful living as well as wars against Zürich and against the House of Habsburg forced those of Regensberg to sell off many of their possessions including the castle and little town of Grüningen, which came again into the possession of the Abbey of Saint Gall, and were bought by Rudolf of Habsburg in the year 1273.
