History[edit]

The area was documented early as being in the possession of the Reichenau monastery as "Stetten am kalten Markt."

On March 1, 1945, Air Force pilot second lieutenant Lothar Sieber died about 7 kilometers south of the Heuberg troop exercise area as part of the first manned rocket flight in history. Sieber was piloting a one-man rocket of the type "Bachem Ba 349 Natter".

Economics[edit]

Stetten is a large German Federal Armed Forces location; approximately 2,200 soldiers are stationed in the area, attached to the Heuberg troop exercise area. According to the city administration, about 1,300 people per annum are transferred to the master garrison in Stetten for military service. The troop exercise area was first set up after 1910. From 1945 to 1959 it was under the administration of the French armed forces (FFA). Even after administration of the facility was assumed by the German Federal Armed Forces, a section was reserved for the FFA until 1997.
