HistoryEdit

Ettenheim was founded in the 8th century by Eddo, bishop of Strassburg, and the Benedictine abbey of Ettenheimmünster was founded at that time and dissolved in 1803.[2] In the Middle Ages, Ettenheim belonged to the archbishop of Strasbourg, and it gained its Charter in 1302.

Louis Antoine, Duke of Enghien took refuge here in 1801 after he was suspected in a plot against Napoleon. He was arrested on 15 March 1804 and later executed in Paris.[2]

In 1973 it was incorporated into the Ortenaukreis.
