Aspach is a community in the Rems-Murr-Kreis in Germany, near Backnang.

The main village, Großaspach, is the birthplace of Hans Werner Aufrecht, co-founder of AMG Engine Production and Development, more commonly known as AMG, as well as the meaning of the "G" in the name. It is commonly mistaken for being the company's first location, but no AMG office, factory, or research facility has ever been located there.

Großaspach is the home of SG Sonnenhof Großaspach, football club, playing in the 3. Liga.
