A glance at history

Jettingen-Scheppach is a market town in Swabia with approx. 7,000 inhabitants in the county of Günzburg. In the town’s history, weaving and peat working belonged to the most important trades. The tradition of weaving led to the founding of Jettingen-Scheppach’s first industry plant: A branch of the doubling mill and sewing thread factory Göggingen was erected which was specialised in blue fabric, shoe linings, damask for beds, flannel and night gowns. For those who are interested in peat working there is a peat adventure path which is mainly interesting for school classes, but also adults interested in the history of peat.
