Stollhofen is a place near Rheinmünster, Rastatt district, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It lies on the river Sulzbach, and was first mentioned in documents in 1154 and given city status in the 13th century.[1]

It gives its name to the Lines of Stollhofen, a 10 mile defensive line between Stollhofen and Bühl constructed in 1703 during the War of the Spanish Succession. The town was captured in 1707 and its fortifications demolished.[1]
