The name Hasliberg is derived from the Old High German generic words hasal (hazel bushes) and mountain .

The village was first mentioned in 1358 when "Hasle an den Bergen" was mentioned. The community used to be called Hasleberg , before the current name Hasliberg finally came into being in 1923 . In 1834 the community of Hasliberg was founded, which corresponded to the borders of the farmers from the late Middle Ages . The oldest surviving community code of the farmers dates from 1555.

From the 14th century, iron ore was  mined in various places in the area .

The community was isolated for a long time and only accessible on foot or on horseback. The inhabitants lived mainly from agriculture. In 1859 the steep path from Goldern and Reuti to Meiringen was expanded to such an extent that a single-axle wagon could drive it over the many bends in an emergency. In 1890 a three-meter-wide driveway from Meiringen to Hohfluh was built. The first two guest houses were opened in 1885 and 1890, while tourism in Meiringen flourished with 18 hotels. With the construction of today's road from Brünig to Reuti between 1902 and 1907, the community was properly developed for the first time; until 1930 there was still a driving ban for motorized vehicles, which was strongly supported by the population, so that Hasliberg was a car-free health resort. A stagecoach used the new road from 1907 to 1925, and from 1909 also in winter. The road led to an upswing in the community, and tourism quickly established itself as an important economic pillar. In 1911 there were already eleven hotels with 600 beds. Later, winter tourism gradually developed. The luxury hotel Schweizerhof, built in 1906, went bankrupt when the guests stayed away during the First World War. Later it was a Protestant holiday home, after 1985 it was converted into the Hasliberghof Rehabilitation Clinic , and since 2007 the house has been run as the Hasliberg Rehabilitation Clinic .

In 1960 the first gondola lift was opened, leading from Wasserwendi to Alp Käserstatt . In 1973 the Meiringen – Hasliberg cable car was opened.

The first reformed church on Hasliberg was built in Hohfluh in 1938. Before that, the Haslibergers had to go to Meiringen to visit the church. In 1947 a vicariate was established. The parish has had a full pastoral office since 1967. In 1975 the Christophorus Chapel was built as the first catholic sacred building in Hasliberg-Hohfluh.
