Aßlar Overview

Aßlar lies on a foothill of the Westerwald range as well as on the river Dill, which empties into the Lahn in neighbouring Wetzlar (Wetzlar vacation rentals | Wetzlar travel guide), about 5 km to the southeast. It is also not far from the "three-state-border", a geographical point common to Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, lying to the west.

The constituent community of Werdorf (Werdorf vacation rentals | Werdorf travel guide) also lies on the Dill, as do Klein-Altenstädten and Berghausen. Bechlingen, Oberlemp and Bermoll lie north of the main town, away from the river.

More about the History of Asslar

Aßlar had its first documentary mention in 783 in a donation document in the Lorsch (Lorsch vacation rentals | Lorsch travel guide) codex (or Codex Laureshamensis in Latin).

Like many other places, Aßlar grew out of a few great yards, growing to a size of about 5,000 inhabitants by the time of the First World War, always forming a community with Klein-Altenstädten on the other side of the Dill. A great inflow of people – refugees expelled from lost German territory – followed the Second World War. This, along with the amalgamation of Bechlingen, Berghausen, Bermoll, Oberlemp and Werdorf (Werdorf vacation rentals | Werdorf travel guide) under municipal reforms in 1977, yielded today's town of Aßlar.

Aßlar was granted town rights on 1978.
