Regensberg is a municipality in the district of Dielsdorf in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland. It is located just to the west of Dielsdorf, on a ridge of the Lägern (617m).HistoryRegensberg was founded as a hilltop fortified settlement about 1245 by Baron Lüthold of Regensberg. The fortifications include a 21m high round tower dating from the 16th or 17th century and a 57m deep water well. The church, originally dating from the 13th century, was rebuilt in 1506.During the mid 13th Century relations between the Barons of Regensberg and the city of Zürich became strained. At about this same time, the barons began to argue with the Habsburgs over who would inherit the lands of the now extinct Kyburg family. In 1267 the disputes led to war between the barons and the combined Zürich and Habsburg forces. The barons lost this war, and rapidly declined in power over the following half century. In 1302 they sold Regensberg to the Habsburgs.The Habsburgs established an Amt Regensberg with a Habsburg appointed Schultheiß leading the town council. Under the Habsburgs the town expanded into a market town and Regensberg castle was the political center of the area now corresponding to the Dielsdorf district.To arrange what you want to do in Regensberg, use our Switzerland itinerary planner.
