Municipal arrangement

Hilbersdorf has two subdivisions: Hilbersdorf and Rußdorf.


It is believed that the founding and settlement of the Mildenfurth Cloister at Wünschendorf occurred in the twelfth century. During its turbulent history, the villagers have belonged to Saxony, to Altenburg, and finally to Thuringia. Within the German Empire (1871-1918), Hilbersdorf was divided between four states, with parts of it belonging to the Duchy of Saxe-Altenburg, the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, the Principality of Reuss-Gera and the Kingdom of Saxony. From 1952 on, the community belonged to the Bezirk of Gera as well as to the Landkreis of the same name. In 1990, the Bezirk Gera was transferred to Thuringia. Subsequently, in 1994, the Kreise in Thuringia were reorganized, with Hilbersdorf going as a result to the Landkreis of Greiz.
