More about the History of Höchst im Odenwald

The Höchster Becken (“Höchst Basin”), was permanently settled, as were other favourable locations, no later than the New Stone Age. Many Stone Age remnants as well as finds from Celtic and Roman times bear witness to this. In the outlying centre of Hummetroth, a Roman villa rustica from the 2nd century was unearthed and may be visited as an open-air museum. It is known as the Römische Villa Haselburg.

Höchst had its first documentary mention in 1156. Its overlords in the Middle Ages were, among others, the Lords of Breuberg, the Counts of Wertheim, the Lords of Eppstein and the Counts of Erbach. By the time that the Thirty Years' War was over, the community had nearly died out, recovering only very slowly.

Through municipal restructuring in Hesse, the community of Annelsbach, which up to this time had been self-governing, was amalgamated in 1969. Following in 1971 were Forstel, Hummetroth, Pfirschbach, Hassenroth, Mümling-Grumbach, Hetschbach and Dusenbach. Since 1857, the valley of the Obrunnbach has been known as the Obrunnschlucht (“Obrunn Gorge”) and has undergone changes due to tourism.
