About this picture

Anhausen ( dialect : Onese [ˈɔːnəsə] ) is a municipality in the Neuwied district in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the community of Rengsdorf-Waldbreitbach .


The place is on the edge of the Westerwald on the heights of the Neuwied Basin in the Rhine-Westerwald Nature Park . The residential areas Bergmannshof, Forsthaus, Forsthaus Braunsberg, Petershof and Rosenhof belong to Anhausen .

Neighboring communities are Meinborn , Rüscheid and Thalhausen , the nearest towns are Neuwied and Dierdorf , which are also adjacent .


Based on finds of Franconian graves in the immediate vicinity of Anhausen (“Ochsenstück” corridor), it can be assumed that there was a settlement here as early as the 7th century.

The community was mentioned for the first time in an arbitration ruling by the General Chapter of the Premonstratensian Order in Prémontré in 1204. In this document, rights of the Rommersdorf Abbey for “par. hanhusen ", that is for the parish of Anhausen. The presence of a parish suggests that a church and settlement already existed at the time. A few years earlier, Bruno von Isenburg had started building the nearby Braunsberg Castle . Since the Lords of Isenburg-Kobern had the right of patronage (1268) in Anhausen, the church probably goes back to a gift from the Lords of Isenburg.

The name Anhausen developed from "Hanhusen" (also "Hainhusen" in the sense of "Waldhausen") in 1204 via "Aynhusen" (1343) to Anhausen (1529).

Under Count Johann IV von Wied , Anhausen had belonged to the County of Wied since 1344 , the Reformation was introduced in the mid-16th century . This was due to the influence of the Cologne Archbishop Hermann V. von Wied , who was an uncle of Johann. The congregation and the pastor now became Protestant .

As a result of the Confederation of the Rhine , which was formed under Napoleon , the parish of Anhausen became part of the Duchy of Nassau in 1806 and became Prussian in 1815 after the Congress of Vienna .
