HistoryEdit

Neckartailfingen was first mentioned in 1090 in the Hirsau codex (Codex Hirsaugiensis) as Tagelvingen. Built by order of the Hirsau abbey, the Romanesque Martinskirche was probably completed in the year 1111. In 1536, the place became Evangelical together with the office Nürtingen and received in 1541 the first village school of the former district Nürtingen. In the Thirty Years' War Neckartailfingen was destroyed after the Battle of Nördlingen (1634) by the infamous dragoons of colonel Walter Butler of Roscrea. Only after a few years the fugitive inhabitants returned and slowly re-built their village again.
