History[edit]

Although supposedly founded by the Allemanni tribes in the year 506, the town was first mentioned in a historical context in 1071. At that time the town had already been settled by local inhabitants and a Roman road. connecting Augsburg with Kempten im Allgäu, ran through the town. The town also has a large millstone also dating from Roman times. The largest landmark in the area, the Church of Saints Peter and Paul was built in 1713. Up until the Second World War, Inningen was a small farming community on the outskirts of Augsburg, although since then it has developed into a more heavily populated residential area of Augsburg. The city lost its status as an independent municipality in 1972. Inningen was, for one day, annexed to Augsburg attached with the neighboring town, Bergheim in order to qualify for a bus depot, and other such amenities, but this was against nearly every local law and was quickly overturned. Inningen and Bergheim are today separate Planungsräume.

Transportation[edit]

Inningen has its own train station, which is regularly served by two local train routes, the R7 and the R8.
