The first documentary mention of a village at the "Holy Fountain" comes from the year 1198. In the 12th century a priest from Güssing gave the Szentgotthárd monastery a vineyard in Heiligenbrunn. Like all of Burgenland, the place belonged to Hungary (German-West Hungary) until 1920/21 . Since 1898 had due to the Magyarization of the government in Budapest of Hungarian name Szentkút be used. After the end of the First World War , after tough negotiations, German-West Hungary was awarded to Austria in the Treaties of St. Germain and Trianon in 1919. The place has belonged to the newly founded federal state of Burgenland since 1921 (see also the history of Burgenland ). The cadastral community of Luising was only assigned to the Republic of Austria on January 10, 1923 by an Allied Border Commission and was occupied by Austrian troops.
Today's large community came into being on January 1st, 1971, when the previously independent communities Deutsch Bieling, Hagensdorf im Burgenland, Heiligenbrunn, Luising and Reinersdorf were merged to form the new community Heiligenbrunn due to the municipal structure improvement law of the Burgenland state government.
