More about the History of Nesselwang
The first mention of Nesselwang was in 1302, in the form Nesselwach, although both the settlement and the name are probably older than this. The castle in the south of Nesselwang was maybe already built in the 11th century but the name Nesselburg was first mentioned in 1302.
The town received the right to hold a market from King Sigismund in 1429. The document conferring this right is now in the Bavarian State Archive in Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide).
In 1869 the town received the right for full self government with a mayor and town council, a right which is still extant in the present day.
