HistoryEdit

The municipality of Allmersbach im Tal was formed on 1 January 1972, as part of the 1968-75 Baden-Württemberg municipal reforms [de], by the merging of the towns of Allmersbach and Heutensbach.[2]

GeographyEdit

The municipality (Gemeinde) of Allmersbach lies at the center of the Rems-Murr district of Baden-Württemberg, one of the 16 States of the Federal Republic of Germany. Allmersbach is physically located in the Neckar basin [de] and the southwest edge of the Backnanger Bucht [de]. The municipal area also includes portions of the Schurwald and Welzheim Forest. Elevation above sea level in the municipal area ranges from a high of 462 meters (1,516 ft) Normalnull (NN) to a low of 414 meters (1,358 ft) NN.[2]

The Federally-protected Sommerrain nature reserve is located in Allmersbach's municipal area.[2]

PoliticsEdit

Allmersbach is in a municipal association (Verwaltungsgemeinschaft) with the city of Backnang and the municipalities of Althütte, Aspach, Auenwald, Burgstetten, Kirchberg an der Murr, Oppenweiler, and Weissach im Tal.[2]

Coat of armsEdit

Allmersbach's coat of arms displays a crossbow, in red and with its trigger guard facing right, upon a field of silver. The crossbow is a motif that has been associated with Allmersbach since 1686, though it is not known why, and the tincture is taken from the arms of the County of Löwenstein [de], which had property in the town. The coat of arms was approved for official use and a corresponding municipal flag issued by the Federal Ministry of the Interior on 16 September 1965.[2]

TransportationEdit

Allermsbach is connected to German's network of roadways by its local Landesstraßen and Kreisstraßen. Local public transportation is provided by the Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund Stuttgart.[2]
