HistoryEdit

Teugn was the site of the battle of Teugen-Hausen in 1809, when a French army led by Marshal Davout defeated an Austrian army led by Prince Friedrich Franz Xaver of Hohenzollern-Hechingen.

During World War II, a subcamp of the Nazi concentration camp Flossenbürg, named Ringberg Me, was installed nearby the street connecting Teugn and the neighboring village Saal an der Donau. The goal was to construct an underground arms industry plant for Messerschmitt, a German aircraft manufacturer. At peak times more than 600 men were imprisoned in the subcamp. After the war 20 bodies and the ashes of about 360 people were found.
