Beutelsbach is a town district or Stadtteil within the town of Weinstadt in Rems-Murr district, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The Stadtteil has a population of 8,464 and an elevation of 236 m above sea level.
Beutelsbach was first mentioned in 1080 and was one of the oldest properties of the House of Württemberg. The first known ancestor of the Württemberg family was Konrad von Württemberg, whose nephew Konrad further established the family. The Beutelsbach Stift was probably founded in the 11th century and then later expanded by Count Ulrich I. of Württemberg. The collegiate church in Beutelsbach was the burial site of the House of Württemberg from that point until the Stift was destroyed in 1311 and moved to Stuttgart.
