More about the History of Ochsenhausen

For many centuries, up until 1806, Ochsenhausen Abbey (Reichskloster Ochsenhausen), first mentioned in 1093, was an ecclesiastical state within the Holy Roman Empire, ruled by the abbot. In 1806, during the German Mediatisation, the territory was annexed by 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.
