Gomaringen is nicely located at the bottom of the Schwaebischen Alb. The surrounding is dominated by wood-, fruit- and grass meadows. The neighbor cities are Reutlingen, Moessingen and Tuebingen. Due to location on the small mountain ridge the Gomaringen castle and the church dominate the historical silhouette of the city. On the bottom of the hill you can find the houses of the craftsmen and the farmers. A lot of the houses are built along the river Wiesaz. The old fish water of the Lords of the castle had been the water source for the oil and grain mills. Today the water was renaturated and it is a pittoresque kaleidoscope of the city landscape. Only a few kilometers north west of Gomaringen there is the small village of Stockach, which is part of Gomaringen since 1973.
It has to be highlighted that there exists a whole book listing all the emigrants from Gomaringen.
If you need more infomation on emigrants from Gomaringen please feel free to contact Beatrice Burst via the contact form of my website.
In June 2023 Beatrice Burst has found a contract in the State Archive of Baden-Wuerttemberg between the monastery of Bebenhausen and Hans (Hennslin) Kemmler dated from January 20, 1487. From my perspective this is the earliest finding of the name Kemmler in the area!
