More about the History of Zell am Harmersbach
Zell was founded by the Imperial abbey of Gengenbach. Records date back to 1139. Having belonged to the masters of Geroldseck and the Diocese of Strasbourg, in 1334 Zell became part of the district of Baden. Subsequently it fell to the house of Zähringen and, after that line's extinction, the city fell to Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II.
Under Rudolph I, the city gained Reichsunmittelbarkeit, becoming the smallest Free Imperial City in the Empire. Despite repeated attempts at annexation by the Austrian Ortenau family, the city retained its independence until its secularisation in 1803, when it was given to Baden as it gained electoral dignity; Baden was raised from a margraviate to a grand duchy three years later.
