Reutlingen (E)

Reutlingen is the capital of the county of Reutlingen, which covers a wide area including parts of the Schwaebische Alb. Reutlingen has always been an industrial city and a center for the textile industry. It has attracted a lot of people from the small towns around, which either moved there or at least went to work there.

There are several separate pages for villages which has been independent and now are part of the city of Reutligen as Betzingen, Bronnweiler, Goenningen, Ohmenhausen and Reicheneck.
On the official website there is a special chapter called “Stadtarchiv” which covers the history of Reutlingen.


The Kemmler in Reutlingen started with Johann Heinrich Kemmler, born on August 20, 1657 and married with mit Agathe Werenwag. Johann Heinrich was the leader of the baker guild. 

We still not know, whether his father, Stefan Kemmler was born as well in Reutlingen or in Tuebingen as his mother.
