The present town was founded on 01.01.1975 in the course of the municipal reorganization. However, the history of the town goes back to the time of Charlemagne. The historical sites of Obermarsberg still bear witness to the extraordinary historical significance of the town. But not only the historical sites, also the scenic location, invite you to visit Marsberg. The nature parks "Eggegebirge" and "Diemelsee" are rewarding hiking areas with varied forests and landscapes. The Diemelsee, which is located in the city area, is an attraction for many water sports enthusiasts.

Since the municipal reorganization, the town of Marsberg consists of 17 districts (, Bredelar, Borntosten, Canstein, Erlinghausen, Essentho, Giershagen, Heddinghausen, Helminghausen, Leitmar, Meerhof, Niedermarsberg, Obermarsberg, Oesdorf, Padberg, Udorf and Westheim).

Helminghausen is located in the extreme southwest corner of the town. Here, at the state border between Hessen and NRW, the Hochsauerland with its wooded hills meets the Waldeck Upland. The terrain around the village rises quite steeply both to the north to the Brandt, as well as to the south to the 595 mtr. high Eisenberg. Between mighty mountain cones lies the small cozy district of Marsberg with just under 200 inhabitants directly on the natural lake in the Diemelsee Nature Park.

The small tourist village directly at the Diemelsee is mentioned for the first time in 1325 in a document of the monastery Bredelar. In ancient times it was a part of the Lordship of Padberg, which is why the coat of arms of the Knights of Padberg served as a model for the village's coat of arms.

The village of Helminghausen is characterized by tourism. In addition to vacation apartments and inns, there is a camping site and a miniature golf course in the village. In the Diemeltal to the east of the village there is a village community hall, a sports field and playground as well as a youth campground. To the west, the compensatory pond of the Diemelsee directly adjoins the village center. From the village center it is only 500 m to the Diemelsee with its manifold tourist offers in every season. The idyllic location below the dam wall of the Diemeltalsperre invites you to let your soul dangle: Hiking on premium hiking trails, cycling on signposted routes, a wide range of water sports and more.
