Stutensee is a town in northern Karlsruhe district in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Schloss Stutensee
Prot. Church in Stutensee-Blankenloch

It was founded in 1975 by the voluntary connection of the four villages of Blankenloch with Büchig, Friedrichstal, Spöck and Staffort. In the meantime it has become a lively city with more than 23,000 inhabitants.

Castle of Stutensee[edit]

Castle of Stutensee is the geographic center and namesake of the city. It was built in 1749 by the margrave of Baden, by the 1,000-year-old oak trees. Today an institution of the Landeswohlfahrtsverband is located here.

Geography[edit]

The city is situated between Karlsruhe and Bruchsal in the Upper Rhine-region and its altitude is 114 m.

History[edit]

Stutensee was founded January 1, 1975 when the four villages of Blankenloch (with Büchig), Friedrichstal, Spöck and Staffort were combined into one municipality. All parts of the town are old villages. Spöck was first mentioned in official documents as Speccha in 865, Staffort 1110 as Stafphort, Blankenloch 1337 as Blankelach and Büchig 1373 as Buchech. Friedrichstal was founded in 1699. Huguenots fleeing religious persecution came from the north of France, and also by way of Belgium and Switzerland.
