History[edit]

Spaichingen is mentioned for the first time in 791 in a deed of donation of the monastery of St. Gallen (Switzerland). Spaichingen was part of the shire of Hohenberg, with its castle Hohenberg, near Wehingen. The shire was sold in 1381 to Austria. In 1806, Spaichingen came under the control of the kingdom of Wuerttemberg and was county seat of the "Oberamt Spaichingen" until 1938. Since then, it has been a part of the county of Tuttlingen.
