Lautlingen is strongly linked to the family von Stauffenberg, at least since 1625. The most famous member of the von Stauffenberg family is Claus von Stauffenberg, who tried to assassinate Adolf Hitler on the 20th of July, 1944. The figure of Claus von Stauffenberg came in an international spotlight in 2009, with the movie Valkyrie, where Tom Cruise played his role. Claus von Stauffenberg lived here in the village.
In the village, you will also find the Stauffenberg-Schloss and the Stauffenberg-Gedächtniskapelle.
