Wolfschlugen is a town in the district of Esslingen in the Filder Plain in Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany.

History[edit]

Wolfschlugen was first mentioned in documents on April 2, 1318 when a local named Benz from Kirchheim unter Teck sold some products of his farm in Wolfschlugen.[2] It is however commonly assumed that people have settled there long before. A strong indication is provided by the close presence of the Waldhauser Schloss, an old Latin estate in a forest nearby Wolfschlugen.[3]
