More about the History of Ruppertsberg

In 1040, Ruppertsberg had its first documentary mention. Most likely it grew out of the Hoheburg (castle) beginning in 800. About 1100, the last Count of the Kraichgau donated the village to the Bishopric of Speyer, which then enfeoffed the Knights of Ruppertsberg with it. In the 14th century, Imperial troops destroyed the castle, whereupon the Knights built a moated castle, the so-called Schloss, in the village’s northeast. After the destruction wrought by the Thirty Years' War, only two families were left in Ruppertsberg.

After the French Revolution, the village became part of the Department of Mont-Tonnerre (or Donnersberg in German), until in 1815, the Congress of Vienna assigned it, together with the rest of the Palatinate, to Bavaria. After the Second World War, the new state of Rhineland-Palatinate was formed. Since 1973, Ruppertsberg has belonged to the Verbandsgemeinde of Deidesheim.
