Ehingen-Donau Details

Ehingen Donau, commonly called just Ehingen, is a town of about 26,000 in the Alb-Donau district of the Baden Wurttenberg region of Germany. Found on the left bank of the Donau River, it is conveniently located just 25 kilometers from Ulm. An interesting fact about the town is that it is one of the youngest in Germany, and so it has avoided a number of the problems that normally come with an ageing population. Of course, will help travelers of any age to find the right Ehingen hotel for their trip.Ehingen, pronounced ‘Enhinga’ in local dialect, was first mentioned in written history in 961. The town flourished under the reign of the dukes of Berg, which was during the 12th and 13th centuries. Then for the next 450 years, from 1346 to 1805, Ehingen belonged to Austria. It wasn’t until the treaties of Pressburg in 1805 that Ehingen was transferred back to what is modern day Germany under the Wurttenberg kingdom. Unfortunately, much of the older city was destroyed by two fires – one in 1688 and one in 1740.
