Allershausen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules a key Argent with forked wardens, in base alongside the orle a rope Or.
Allershausen was first mentioned in 827 in connection with a donation of estates to the cathedral in Freising. The donation was symbolised by an agitator or bell rope. The key is symbolising St. Peter and St. Paul and is taken from the arms of the Premonstratensian Neustift Abbey in Freising, due to the close connections between village and abbey since the 12th century . The abbey had also been an important manorial lord until 1803.
