The town of Diemelstadt came into being on 1 November 1970 through the voluntary merger of the town of Rhoden and the smaller municipality of Wrexen.

Diemelstadt borders in the north and east on the town of Warburg, in the southeast on the town of Volkmarsen, in the south on the town of Bad Arolsen, and in the west on the town of Marsberg. Diemelstadt is geographically located in a small bay that thrusts into, and is surrounded on three sides by, North Rhine-Westphalia. The River Diemel, the town's namesake, does not cross through the municipal area, forming only parts of the town limits, and at the same time parts of the boundary between Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia. One river that does cross through the municipal area, however, is the Orpe, a north-flowing tributary to the Diemel that empties into the larger river at the northern town limits. Diemelstadt lies 12 kilometers north of Bad Arolsen, and 31 kilometers southeast of Paderborn. Due to its many historic events and places it has been one of the favorite destinations of visitors.
