History

The first written mention of Birmenstorf dates to 1146, when a stay of Bernard of Clairvaux was recorded. In 1415, the Eidgenossenschaft conquered the Aargau, and Birmenstorf as part of the Habsburgian County of Baden came under their sovereignty. During the Reformation, about a third of the population converted to Protestantism. The choir of the old church with frescos dating to 1440 still exists today.

For over 600 years, vineyards have been cultivated in Birmenstorf.
