More about the History of Halver

Around 950 the Oberhof (Oberhof vacation rentals | Oberhof travel guide) Halvara was first mentioned in the Werdener Probsteiregister. For more than 500 years Halver was the seat of a Fehmic court, the earliest definite evidence of which is in 1243; it ceased to exist in 1753. This court was most famous because of the trial of duke Henry XVI the Rich of Bavaria-Landshut and the knight of Toerring on May 2, 1430.

With effect from October 1, 1912 the municipality Halver was split, Schalksmühle becoming an independent municipality. Both were administered together in the Amt Halver. As part of the communal reforms of the district of Altena (Altena vacation rentals | Altena travel guide) the Amt was dissolved on January 1, 1969, and Halver was granted city rights.
