With less than nine hundred residents, Schluttenbach is the smallest community belonging to Ettlingen. At 328 m above sea level it also has the highest elevation.
Schluttenbach was founded some time between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries as an outlying settlement of Schöllbrunn. After almost 200 years as part of the county and duchy of Württemberg, in 1528 it was acquired by the margraves of Baden in an exchange, who added it to Stab Weier.
Schluttenbach's defining symbol is its 1000-year-old linden tree at the entrance of the village. More information (in German) can be found here.
