History[edit]

Finds from the Neolithic Age and the Hallstatt culture period are as attested as the settlement in Roman times. After introduction of the Reformation in the 16th Century Uttenhoffen had until the 18th century a simultaneous church. Around 1790 it was fortified. On 1st of December 1793 the near winter camp of Major General Stephan Bernhard Keglevich and his private Serbian soldiers was attacked by surprise. 7 days later on the 8th of December 1793 Madame du Barry was executed for treason.

Extras[edit]
