The history of Gaggenau(excerpt from the municipal page):
Situated at the foot of the Murg valley, the town was first mentioned in 1243. In the 17th century, Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm laid the foundations for the industrial development of Gaggenau by leasing the newly built hammer mill, which over the years developed into a vibrant industrial centre. In addition to the listed glassworks, whose fine glass products delighted a wide range of buyers worldwide, the traditional factory of the Daimler AG company still stands here today - the oldest car factory in Germany and the cradle of the Unimog, which is valued worldwide. A museum is dedicated to this universal motor vehicle, which was produced in Gaggenau for over half a century. Gaggenau's industrial spectrum would be inconceivable without a number of other well-known companies, medium-sized businesses and specialist shops for upmarket requirements, such as Dambach-Werke, Protektorwerk Florenz Maisch, Holzwerke Rahner, Franz Grötz, Gerhard Lang, König Metall, Z-Müller, City-Kaufhaus, Kohlbecker Architekten & Ingenieure and many others. The large district town of Gaggenau with its 31,000 inhabitants is not only an attractive business location but also a popular place to live, thanks to new urban development accents with a wide range of health, school, leisure and cultural facilities and optimum transport links.
