It has not been proven that the name of the community of 'Dachsberg' (Badger mountain) actually goes back to the badger which is still native to this area. It is however known that the location of Urberg was mentioned in a document as early as 1237 and is thus just as old as Berlin. In 2017, the 780th anniversary was celebrated. Three decades younger are the location of Wolpadingen, which provided the name for an early Hauenstein confederation, and other locations mentioned for the first time in 1266. In 2016, the 750th anniversary has been celebrated. More information concerning the Dachsberg Community.
