Hahn am See, which was mentioned in a document as Hane as early as 1374, lies on one of Germany’s oldest roads. The Hohe Straße (“High Road”), which is now Bundesstraße 8, can be traced back to the Völkerwanderung in pre-Christian times. When there was a great water shortage in 1870, a fountain to supply people with water, was built which was fed by a natural spring. The old fountain column still stands today and still gives its cooling wetness.
With the amalgamation of the communities of Hahn and Niederhahn, the new united community was given the name Hahn am See in 1980.
The council is made up of 8 council members who were elected in a majority vote in a municipal election on 7 June 2009.
