Höfen upon Enz Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, issuant from base a triplemount Vert, on its dexter peak an embattled tower Gules, on both other peaks a house Gules, seen from gable front.
The village was first mentioned in the 14th century as "zuo dem hofe". It was parted of the Lordship of Neuenbürg, a dominion of the Counts of Vaihingen. Finally Höfen and Neuenbürg became dominions of Württemberg in 1315/1320. Höfen became an independent municipality in 1799. The tower is referring to Neuenbürg (= new castle), the houses are representing farmhouses (German: Höfe) and are thus canting elements.
