More about the History of Hüttenberg
On 1 August 1968, Groß-Rechtenbach and Klein-Rechtenbach formed the new community of Rechtenbach, while Hochelheim and Hörnsheim formed the new community of Hüttenberg. On 1 January 1971, Rechtenbach, Vollnkirchen and Weidenhausen merged into the new community of Schwingbach. On 1 January 1977, the new greater community of Hüttenberg was formed out of Hüttenberg, Reiskirchen, Schwingbach and Volpertshausen.
In the years from 1910, Paul Schneider spent his youth in Hochelheim. He was later Hochelheim's and Dornholzhausen's Evangelical minister from 1926 to 1934. In 1939, he was murdered by the Nazis in Buchenwald concentration camp. A street and an Evangelical parish house in Hüttenberg are named after him. After the Second World War, many people driven out of the Sudetenland came here and contributed considerably to the community's economic growth, its cultural modernization and to changes in the community.
Hüttenberg has become well known for team handball and the community's gustatory speciality, Handkäse (literally "hand cheese", so called from its originally being shaped by hand), a pungent, sour-milk cheese. It is still produced in Hüttenberg today and sold all over Germany.
Moreover, Hüttenberg is somewhat less well known – and somewhat more laid back as a result – for being a small recreation destination in the Taunus foothills with lovely forests, hilly fields, brookside paths and rare kinds of plant. On some farms there are tasty treats.
