Until the church is planted

The first secure documentary mention of today's Münsterhausen dates from the year 1384. This document confirms the ownership of the Ursberg monastery . The rule in the formerly independent towns of Münster and Hausen belonged to the margraviate of Burgau . From the year 1433 the villages were in often changing fiefdoms . Münsterhausen was raised to the market in 1580 and became the seat of a maintenance office of the Augsburg bishopric . From 1660 onwards, the Barons von Heidenheim held local rule until they died out in 1789. With the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss of 1803, the places came to Bavaria . The community emerged in 1818 from the formerly independent towns of Münster and Hausen. The cathedral further north and Hausen to the south were still structurally separated at that time.

Territorial reform of the 1970s

Until the regional reform , the community belonged to the district of Krumbach . This was dissolved on July 1, 1972, Münsterhausen came to the district of Günzburg. On January 1, 1978, the previously independent municipality of Hagenried was incorporated. On May 1, 1978, the Oberhagenried part of the dissolved Edelstetten municipality was added, which had fewer than 25 inhabitants at the time.
