More about the History of Herbstein

Herbstein had its first documentary mention in 1011 in a donation document from the monastery at Fulda (Fulda vacation rentals | Fulda travel guide). In 1262, Herbstein was granted town rights. Until 1902 the town belonged to the Princely Abbey (Fürstabtei) of Fulda. There followed a short time of changing leadership until the town passed to the Grand Duchy of Hesse in 1810.

As part of Hesse's municipal reforms, the formerly independent municipalities of Altenschlirf, Lanzenhain, Schlechtenwegen and Steinfurt (Steinfurt vacation rentals | Steinfurt travel guide) were amalgamated into the town of Herbstein with effect on 31 December 1971. Rixfeld, Schadges and Stockhausen followed on 1 August 1972.
