Variously spelt Hahnberg, Hahn von Hahnberg/Hahnsberg, Haan von Hahnenberg, Hahnsperg; an ancient German noble family settled in the Rhineland, the first recorded ancestor dates from the 10th century. Originating as vassals of the counts of Jülich, the family held the lordship of Bruck, which enjoyed imperial immediacy, and consequently were enrolled in the Free Imperial Knights of the Holy Roman Empire (1520), in the canton of Middle Rhine. Since 1704 the family hold the title of Reichsfreiherr (imperial barons).

A branch of the Hahnsbergs settled in Austria in the late 13th century.

The family's holdings were mediatized in 1803 (see German Mediatisation).
