At Gerbach, there is the worlds most powerful wind turbine, an Enercon E-126 with axis height of 135 metres and rotor diameter of 127 metres with a generation capacity of 7.5 MW.
The first documented mention is dated 1192. Gerbach is also called "Klää Paris" (little Paris), as during the french revolution Gerbach had a high density of bars, just like Paris.
Gerbach has a very traditional male choral society, founded in 1861. In 2011 there was an anniversary celebration (150 years). Furthermore a carnival club is very active in the community as well as a sports club (Soccer, Table Tennis, Aerobic).
