Bebenhausen

Bebenhausen is a village (pop. 347) in the Tübingen district, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Since 1974 it is a district of the city of Tübingen, its smallest one. It is located 3 km north of Tübingen proper (about 5 km northeast of the city centre), in the southeastern part of the protected landscape of the Schönbuch, a dense forest. It is located on Route 464 connecting Böblingen and Tübingen. It was founded in 1183 by Pfalzgraf Rudolf von Tübingen. Bebenhausen is famous for its monastery, Bebenhausen Abbey.

It became a municipality in 1823. King William II of Württemberg lived there until his death in 1921 along with his wife duchess Charlotte of Schaumburg-Lippe until her death in 1947. It became the seat of Württemberg-Hohenzollern from 1947 and until 1952 when Baden-Württemberg was created. In 1974, it became a district of Tübingen.
