Until the church is planted
Habach was first mentioned in the biography of St. Ulrich around 983. A monastery consecrated to St. Ulrich was founded by Count Norbert von Hohenwart in the 11th century as a canon monastery . On April 23, 1330, Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian granted Habach and 16 other Upper Bavarian monasteries and monasteries the right to court marches . Habach belonged to the Rentamt München and to the District Court of Weilheim of the Electorate of Bavaria . The monastery Habach and its open Hofmark were 1,802 secularized . Habach and Dürnhausen with the surrounding wastelands formed the community of Habach, which was founded in 1818 and belonged to the Weilheim district court .
From the 20th century
The district of Weilheim , to which the municipality belonged, was dissolved in 1972 as part of the municipal reform, Habach came to the district of Weilheim-Schongau. In 1978 the Habach administrative community was set up together with the communities of Antdorf , Sindelsdorf and Obersöchering .
The first mention of Habach in 983 in the biography of St. Ulrich as the Hewibahc monastery was followed by another in 1073 as "Hegibach [...] ad fontem ubi Maior Hegibach oritur" ( German "Hegibach near the source, where the greater Hegibach rises" ) . This is followed by evidence of Habach as Heibach (1083), Hegibach (1085), Hegebach (1173–1175), Heibach (1190–1192), Haibach (approx. 1260), Hevbach (1312), Haebach (1335) and finally in 1399 as Habach .
Between 1988 and 2018 the municipality grew from 739 to 1,168 inhabitants or by 58.1% - the highest percentage increase in the district in the period mentioned.
