Essingen (Ostalbkreis) is in the State of Baden-Württemberg in Germany. It lies about 73km east of Stuttgart, just outside of the city of Aalen. The Rems river begins just outside Essingen, on its way down the Remstal (Rems Valley) to merge with the Neckar near Stuttgart.

Essingen currently has about 6000 residents, and is located on the northern end of the Swabian Alb. It is mainly a dormitory community, but does have industry along the B29 federal road and Stuttgart-Aalen rail line.

Recreational activities include biking, hiking, and rambling. In the winter, there are opportunities for skiing.

In the middle of the village lies the Schloss (castle) and Schloss Park. The castle was built circa 1550 by the Woellwarth Family. It has remained in the family until recently when it was sold at auction causing much controversy in the village. Some villagers wanted to save the castle to be used for various activities and events but the overall consensus was that the castle would be too expensive to maintain and run.

Essingen is a larger municipality, and the nearby villages of Lauterburg, Forst, Dauerwang, Hermannsfeld, Birkenteich and Hohenroden belong to Essingen.
