Wurmberg was first mentioned in documents in 1221 as a chapel was built at that time. In the following period, the Maulbronn Monastery secured the rule of Wurmberg. The monastery of Wurmberg came into Württemberg in 1504 following the Bavarian-Palatine War of Succession. At the end of the 17th Century Waldensian Protestants forced to flee from Italy settled in Wurmberg. The establishment of the district of Neubärental in 1721 goes back to these religious refugees. An originating theologian of Bärenthal (Hohenzollern) who had converted with some families from Catholicism to Protestantism, had to leave his home in the southern German town of Bärenthal.
In 1534, Ulrich, Duke of Württemberg enforced the Protestant Reformation in his Duchy of Württemberg. Waldensians immigrants had found refuge in Wurmberg-Lucerne. 40 people form Bärenthal in Hohenzollern had found refuge in Wurmberg-Neubärental.
