Dettingen 1683/1685 in Kieserschen forest stock book Already from antiquity in Lautertal were found settlement traces. Right through the valley and the village leads the Lautertal Limes, a Roman border fortification that the vernacular as Sybillenspur knows. South of today's city lies fort Dettingen unter Teck. Dettingen was first mentioned around 1100. Exceptional is the high number of six castles and noble seats that you could find on Dettinger denunciation. None of the castles is more received, they are all gone off in the early Middle Ages. The Companies based noble families had to Dettinger Markung the main part of the manorial rights. The high authority was already since 1381 the House of Württemberg, in 1415 brought the Württemberger the rights as local lords in. On the German Peasants' War 1525 also Dettinger tenants were actively involved. In the Thirty Years War the city was heavily damaged, the population decreased by war and plague to around one third. At the beginning of the 17th century the city had around 1300 inhabitants, 1654 there were only 511 people in the village. The site was slow to recover, the Napoleonic wars in the 17th century brought another setback. Yet in 1715 were 160 court yards not inhabited and 300 acres of fields and vineyards lay fallow. In 1803 Dettingen had then about 1800 inhabitants. In 1939 the airfield of Wolf Hirth GmbH was expelled from the Air Force as airfield. The court, however, was relatively small and was therefore not covered by the air force. At the end of the Second World War Dettingen was hit hard on April 20, 1945, the fateful day. Days before had sought and found refuge on their march to retreat to the Swabian Alb in Dettingen German troops. The barns and cellars were full of German soldiers, began as Allied fighter-bombers to 16 clock with a systematic bombardment of the town. Explosive and incendiary bombs were dropped, quickly burned 69 houses and 39 barns ablaze. The church, the town hall, the Schlössle, the old school, the kindergarten and the fire station were destroyed by fire, the cattle burnt in the stables. Ten local residents and 13 soldiers died. One day later, the Americans invaded and occupied the village. Dettingen belonged until 1938 to Oberamt Kirchheim, then to district Nürtingen and from 1973 to Esslingen district.
