It should be noted that amongst German soldiers, the city had the nickname "am kalten Arsch" ("kalter Arsch" meaning "cold butt") instead of "am kalten Markt", due to the fact that it was the location of a military training ground where outdoor training would take place and the local micro-climate is a rather cold one. 20:33, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Stetten on Cold Ass[edit]

I was with US Army in Germany and served in a NATO unit (CENTAG) at Hammonds Barracks in Mannheim-Seckenheim 1973 to 1977. We (German soldiers and me) used to call the town Stetten am kalten Arsch as well. This term was still used 1981 to 1987 when I was stationed in Warner Barracks, Bamberg. Arsch is German for arse or ass. Tjlynnjr (talk) 00:01, 18 March 2014 (UTC).

I also recall there supposedly was a Bundeswehr Strafbattalion there. This was a sort of Retraining/Disciplinary Unit. Wir.Dienen.Deutscland. Tjlynnjr (talk) 08:35, 26 March 2016 (UTC) .
I don’t know in which context a «Strafbatallion» was with Stetten am kalten Markt. For shure it was not in the Bundeswehr era but during the Wehrmacht period. At the «Russian Cemetery» a plaque commemorates the victims. --Хрюша 13:01, 11 April 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chriusha (talkcontribs)
