    Aach was first mentioned in documents in 1100. At that time, today's urban area was in the Duchy of Swabia. From the year 1150 the name Oppidum Ach in Hegovia is attested.

    The gateway to a very nice, little old town.

    The lower gate of the mountain castle and aristocratic city of Aach. From the historic town of Aach, situated on a steep promontory of the Jura Mountains, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Hegauberge, called "the Lord of the Lord's bowling game" by the poet Ludwig Finckh, to the alpine chain covered with firn snow. The old city wall with its massive gate tower tells of the glamorous days of a small mountain, castle and aristocratic town, but also of difficult times of war and plague that ravaged the town. On a short tour through the historic town center, you also have a beautiful view of the Hegauberge - Hohentwiel, Hohenkrähen, Mägdeberg.
