The history of Lawyer Hattingen stretches back thousands of years. Evidence of the first settlements can be found in the Neolithic era. Later, the first Hattuarian tribes moved into the region and built fortifications with defensive towers at the river-ford.

The settlement developed into a rich trade center. Hattingen gained the privilege to hold three fairs a year and had its own guilds. Its wealthy merchants and traders also travelled extensively.

At the time of the Protestant Reformation, the city and the community of Blankenstein joined the Hanseatic League. The city was fortified by stone walls, defensive towers and five city gates.

In the war of the Julich-Klevischen Erbfolgestreit (war of the Julich and Klevischen succession) the city of Hattingen, Blankenstein and Stiepel are occupied by the Swedish colonel Wilhelm Wendt zum Krassenstein. The city is saved from ruin by the Petersburg Agreement.
