Huissen is part of the municipality of Lingewaard. It was an independent municipality until 2001, when it merged with Gendt and Bemmel to form Lingewaard.

Huissen was first mentioned in 814 as Hosenheim. It received city rights in 1314. The city was part of the Duchy of Cleves and became Dutch in 1816. Much of the town was destroyed in World War Two; after the war it was rebuilt in Traditionalist style.
