Mörshausen is a district of the city of Spangenberg in the Schwalm-Eder district and is located in Hesse (Germany).

Mörshausen is located about 2 km west of the city center on the B 487 and is traversed by the Pfieffe . The district of Mörshausen borders on the Malsberg, an elevation near Spangenberg. The district also borders on the municipality of Morschen and that of the city of Melsungen (both Schwalm-Eder district ). The Pfieffetalbrücke of the high-speed line Hanover – Würzburg also leads through the district . Neighboring villages are Adelshausen (to Melsungen) and the core city. A place called "Meinbrateshusen" was first mentioned in a document in 920, it is probably Mörshausen. Mörshausen, which is known today, was only mentioned in a document from Fritzlar in 1209. Mörshausen was attached to the city of Spangenberg on April 1, 1971, and around 420 people live there today. The well-developed R 12 cycle path leads directly through the village.

The local advisory board consists of 5 people, 3 of whom belong to the SPD and 2 to the GL (Mörshausen community list). In 2011 the voter turnout was 58.8%. The head of the village is Annelie Deist.

As in every other district, there is also a volunteer fire brigade in Mörshausen . There is also a rural women’s association in Mörshausen. In the surrounding area, Mörshausen is best known for the annual Linden Festival. The mortars are also called the "Rewwesters". A "Rewwester" is a clay pot with two handles and a spout in which milk has been stored. Since lush meadows can be found around Mörshausen, a lot of “Rewwesters” were needed in the place due to the livestock.
