Together with the communities Altstrimmig , Liesenich and Mittelstrimmig, Forst belongs to the so-called Strimmiger Berg and is located in the Hunsrück on a hill above the Mörsdorfer Bach not far from Mastershausen .
The Strimmiger Berg, also known as Strimmiger Court , was part of the "triordial territory" until 1780. As in the Beltheim court , Kurtrier , Sponheim and Braunshorn (later Winneburg and Metternich) shared sovereignty. From 1794, Forst was under French rule and from 1798 to 1814 belonged to the canton of Zell in the Rhine-Moselle department . In 1815 the region was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna and belonged to the Senheim mayor in the Zell district, established in 1816 . In 1817 the later independent community of Forst was listed as part of Mittelstrimmig under the name "Försterhöfe" and had 42 inhabitants. Since 1946 it has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate . The community has had the addition of "(Hunsrück)" to its name since June 1, 1970.
