Geographic Location[edit]

Ditzingen is located in the southwestern Neckar basin in the Strohgäu at the transition to the so-called Long Field. The urban area lies between the Strudelbach in the west and the Glems in the east. The Glems, a right tributary of the Enz River, flows through the center of Ditzingen. The city center is on the right of the river.

The Glems formerly formed the tribal border of the Swabians and Franks and was also the border of the two dioceses Roman Catholic Diocese of Speyer and Bishopric of Constance.

The local councils are elected in every local election by the population eligible to vote in the village. There is also an administrative office in each village, which serves as the local town hall.

The former municipality Heimerdingen includes the village Heimerdingen and the outgoing town Stetten.

The village Hirschlanden as well as the local villages Holzheim and Rotweil belong to the former municipality Hirschlanden.
