Regensberg is located in the Dielsdorf district, in the Zurich Canton, in the country of Switzerland. This municipality is situated to Dielsdorf’s west, and it is on a Lagern ridge. It has a population of just under 500.
Regensberg was established as a fortified settlement on a hilltop, and it was founded in the mid-1200s. Baron Luthold founded the settlement. The fortifications incorporate a high tower that dates from the 1500s or 1600s and a water well. The church dates from 1200s, and it was redeveloped in the early 1500s.
During the 1200s, the relations between Zurich and the Regensberg barons became somewhat strained. Around this time, the barons started to fight with the Habsburgs over the land inheritance of what was left behind by the Kyburg family. The arguments eventually led to war in 1267, and the barons fought the combined Habsburg and Zurich forces. The barons lost out, and they started to decline in power extremely rapidly. They lost most of their influence over next five decades. In the early 1300s, the Habsburgs bought Regensberg.
Regensberg has a total area of less than one square mile. Out of this total area, about 35% is put to use for agriculture, and about 57% is covered in forest. The remainder of the land (about 9%) is settled.
