Economy and InfrastructureEdit

TrafficEdit

RailEdit

Gäufelden is connected to the national railway network via the Gäu Railway. The railway station is served every two hours by regional express trains to Singen (in the opposite direction to Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof), by regional trains to Freudenstadt Hauptbahnhof or Rottweil, which also share every two hours in Eutingen im Gäu, and by individual regional trains to Herrenberg (in the opposite direction to Bondorf (b Herrenberg)). In the evenings from Monday to Friday, a pair of trains on the S 81 line of the Karlsruhe Stadtbahn, which otherwise ends in Eutingen im Gäu, will also be tied through to Herrenberg, which also stops in Gäufelden.

Bus transportEdit

In order to provide a connection to the S 1 line of the Stuttgart S-Bahn to Kirchheim unter Teck, which terminates in Herrenberg, Gäufelden is served hourly by buses in the direction of Herrenberg.

RoadsEdit

Gäufelden is located on several Landesstraßen and Kreisstraßen.

HistoryEdit

The municipality was founded July 1, 1971 by the voluntary merger of the previously independent villages of Nebringen, Öschelbronn and Tailfingen. Since then, the population has more than doubled. These three villages constitute "Ortsteile" (districts) of Gäufelden. Each district retains a Rathaus (town hall), but the administration is centralized in Öschelbronn.

Former mayorsEdit

  • Herrmann Wolf (1971-2003)
