1. History

Hagelloch was originally known as Hagenloch and meant a wood surrounded by a hedge. It was first mentioned in records in 1106.

The oldest owners of Hagelloch were the Palatinate counts of Tubingen. Count Gottfried sold Hagelloch to Bebenhausen Abbey in 1296 which retained ownership of the district until the cloister was dissolved in 1807. For centuries the district suffered from severe poverty.

During the 19th century, many areas of Germany underwent Realteilung - a redistribution of land and property - which also affected Hagelloch and small landowners. In the first half of the 19th century 43.1% of the inhabitants of Hagelloch were manual workers such as bricklayers, plasterers and carpenters, 18.6% farmers and 11.6% day labourers.

In the 1970s Hagelloch became popular among commuters to nearby Tubingen and even Stuttgart. After peaking in 1999, the population has settled to its current level of 1796.
