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

Aspach is made up of four, formerly independent villages: Großaspach, Kleinaspach, Allmersbach and Rietenau. In 1972, the 4 villages joined forces under the name Aspach. The villages were founded between 950BC and 1150BC. Rietenau is home to natural springs and used to be a popular Spa until early 1900. Water from Rietenau is still bottled today. 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 - except for the garage, where Aufrecht and Melcher (the M in AMG) started out tuning cars and engines.

Sports[edit]

Großaspach is the home of SG Sonnenhof Großaspach, football club, playing in the Regionalliga Südwest.
