Hörgertshausen is a municipality in the district of Freising in Bavaria in Germany.


Pre-Christian Celtic graves shows that there has been settlement for a long time. But the first official mention of the village called "Herigoldshusa" (the house of Herigold) was in a donation of Emperor Arnulf of Carinthia to his vasal Earl Luitbold Cholo [2] in 899. In 1081 the possessions of Kuno II. of Rott were founded to the Cloister Rott while he fell in military service for Emperor Henry IV. From 1549 until the 19. century it was the so-called Hofmark by the Earls of Seyboltsdorf. In 1550, they built the Castle Hörgertshausen. In 1661, half of the village was destroyed by a blaze but also reconstructed in the same year. In 1848, Hörgertshausen became an autonomous municipality. In 1852, the Castle was destructed. Since 1978, Hörgertshausen is part of the association of administrations Mauern, which consists of the municipalities of Hörgertshausen, Mauern, Gammelsdorf and Wang.
