The place was only founded in 1587. With the commissioning of the Kamptalbahn , Zitternberg developed into a little summer resort . After 1945 the place could no longer follow the tradition of the summer resort. Changed travel habits, but also the construction of the Kamptal reservoirs, which led to a sharp drop in temperature in the Kamp, which is lined with numerous bathing establishments, deprived tourism in the Kamptal of its most important foundations. In 1938 the previously independent municipality was attached to the municipality of Gars , and in 1945 it became independent again. In 1971 it became part of the market town of Gars am Kamp as part of the amalgamation of the municipalities . In 2017, the Zitternberg Beautification Association published the home book “Zitternberg. Searching for traces in the Kamptal ”.
