In the year 787 Bieber was mentioned the first time as the Frankish Gaugrafen Warin and Walahand gifts their possession "in the Bieber Maingau" to the monastery of Fulda. On 22 of April 791, the first mentioned as the Frankish landowners Erlulf Bieber his possession and other places in the Main, Worms and Mainz and the Rheingau to the monastery of Lorsch.

At that time (1884) Bieber was the the largest city in the railwaycomité. And the surprise was great, as the town fathers received the information, that Heusenstamm should get one station, but not Bieber. Then the mayor wrote a cry for help to the Grand Duke. His relations with the court meant that the Hofmarschallamt of his Royal Highness in Phillip resting on the side of the Bieberer noted, because his 368-acre should also be good for the Grand Duke easily accessible.

Thus Bieber got its station. In the ranking of the "Deutsche Bahn" from the year 2007, the stations No. is 4744 in the category 4.
