The municipality was created from the merger of the municipalities Oberkemmathen, Dorfkemmathen and Ammelbruch. Idyllically embedded within the landscape on the foot of the Hesselberg and ideal starting point for hikes, cycling tours and excursions to the historical towns in the surrounding area.
Dorfkemmathen: Marien-Church “Zur lieben Frau” with a late Gothic altar of Mary, Ammelbruch: St.-Peters-Church.
The Limes runs along the municipal border with Wittelshofen in the forest at Ammelbruch. It bends in its north-east-course and continues eastwards. This bend in the Limes-line – the so-called “Limesknick” – is the reason why Hesselberg became part of the Roman territory.
