The basin in which Geislingen is located was already settled in the late Bronze Age. The city was founded at the beginning of the 13th century by the Counts of Helfenstein on the convenient location on the Albaufstieg. When the city went to Ulm in 1396, there was an upswing and brisk construction activity.
Today there are some well-preserved, stately half-timbered buildings in and around the pedestrian zone. Above all, the striking "Old Town Hall" from 1422 and the "Old Building", which with its eight floors is one of the largest half-timbered houses in Germany and houses the local history museum.
