Welcome to Reilingen

Archaeological findings in and around Reilingen point to an early settlement, even before its first proper naming in 1286. The sensational finding of a human skull fragment in 1978 is document to this as its age has been estimated at about 300.000 years. The former peasant village has over time developed into a nice community to live in. With its approximately 7000 inhabitants Reilingen has its own unique charm. Besides its tobacco production Reilingen is famous for its high quality asparagus. The renowned friendliness and warmth shapes the hospitality of Reilingen, which has engaged in city partnerships with the Italian and the French city of Jargerau.
