The history of the area around Hattingen goes back to Neolithic times. Archeological discoveries prove that parts of today’s Hattingen, Holthausen and Welper were inhabited from 2000 BC onwards. During the Middle Ages, a medieval settlement developed on the hillside above the river ford.
In 1412, three guilds are founded in Hattingen. The drapers in particular gain supra-regional importance. Especially after the Thirty Years’ War and the establishment of the Hanseatic League in 1554, the city prospered enormously. Even today, the wealth can be seen in many half timbered houses in the Altstadt (city centre) and in the richly ornamented city hall from 1576.
In 1853, Count Henrich zu Stolberg-Wernigerode bought 76 Morgens of land from Bruch Manor in Welper to build a steel mill, which is called the “Henrichshutte”. The Henrichshutte shapes the economic and social structure of the region for 130 years.Rechtsanwalt Hattingen
