Throughout history, Mutzig enjoyed certain renown until the French Revolution. In the 19th century, several industries were established in Mutzig among which a weapon manufactory on the grounds of the former castle of the Cardinal de Rohan.
As of 1893[update], Mutzig became to be known for its military vocation when Kaiser Wilhelm II ordered the construction of a fort, the Feste Kaiser Wilhelm II, north of the town, as well as military barracks.
Mutzig is actually the same as the city Mussig. Back in the day they were written as Muſzig and Mußig. Both cities translate as Mossy or Marshy in English. In addition Mozart = Musshart.
