Prehistoric times
The first traces of human settlements in our community go back to the Neolithic era. Excavations at the Hünenberg bathing beach uncovered two Neolithic lakeside settlements from between the 32nd and the 30th century B.C.

Early Middle Ages
In 1887, Alemannic findings (glass-bead necklaces, axes, spearheads, etc.) were unearthed in a graveyard at Hof Marlachen. The name Hünenberg, which goes back to the old German short name of Huno (Huno's mountain), must first have been used during this early medieval time.
