The borough of Reichenau was first mentioned in 1436, but is probably much older. In the years from 1429 to 1431, Hussites pillaged the village and destroyed the church. During the Liberation Wars, first Prussian, then Russian troops were stationed in Reichenau.

The boroughs of Gersdorf and Möhrsdorf were first mentioned in 1225 and 1264, respectively. They belong together since February 14, 1958.

Bischheim was first mentioned in 1225 and was merged with Häslich on January 1, 1969.

On January 1, 2001 the towns of Reichenbach, Reichenau, Gersdorf-Möhrsdorf und Bischheim-Häslich were incorporated into the municipality of Haselbachtal.
