Eguisheim has been permanently occupatied since prehistory.
The name of the village " Egenesheim " in 10th century means " Egino's house ", Germanic first name.
The counts of the Nordgau, the most powerful family of Alsace in the 11th and 12th centuries, bore this name from the 11th century and resided at the castles of Haut-Eguisheim , which were built up on a nearby summit dominating the village and the plain.
The pope Léon IX, stemming from this family, was born there.
Thanks to the generosity of the counts of Eguisheim, numerous convents of Alsace had possessions in the village, already considered as its wines.
