View of Datzeroth

Datzeroth is a municipality in the Neuwied district in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the community of Rengsdorf-Waldbreitbach .



The place is in the Rhine-Westerwald nature park on the Wied , five kilometers south-southeast of Waldbreitbach . To the east of Datzeroth the Dombach flows into the Wied, to the south the Friedrichsthaler Kopf ( 268  m above sea  level ) rises .

Community structure

Places of residence in the local community of Datzeroth are Forsthaus Friedrichsthal and Haus Grenzelberg . The name of the Forsthaus Friedrichsthal, southeast of Datzeroth, comes from the founder of the town of Neuwied , Count Friedrich III. to Wied , back. Datzeroth also includes the Seiferts-Au campsite in the north , named after a courtier from the nearby former cloister courtyard.



Datzeroth is first mentioned in 1219. The Archbishop of Trier and Elector Dietrich von Wied (1212-1242) ended this year a dispute between Wilhelm von Ouch and the residents of Datzeroth (Dazinrod) on the one hand and the Augustinian nuns of the St. Thomas monastery in Andernach on the other. The dingvogt (dincvoit, i.e. taxes) is awarded to the nuns. The latter maintained a monastery courtyard with a chapel on the Nonnenbach (Hunninbac) in the Grenzelberg (Cruntzelenberc) as early as 1152. The monastery property extended largely to the place and the surrounding area of ​​Datzeroth. In 1242, too, considerable wooded areas (Gruelsifen) were disputed between Datzeroth and the monastery people at Grenzelberg. The Datzerother residents Heinfried and Heinrich declare on April 5, 1297 that they will cede their rights to the Waldmark to the Andernach Augustinian women. Count Johann IV zu Wied (1535–1581) concluded a contract with the women from Grenzelberg on April 28, 1557 against the background of the Reformation, which regulated the contentious issues of the Datzerother dog stable and the goods at Kurtscheid . This dispute had also been pending before the court in Segendorf and the Reich Chamber Court . Until the Reformation, the Seiferts-Au and the former forester's house Nonnenbach, located on the right side of the Wied on the municipal border with Niederbreitbach , also belonged to the property of the Grenzelberger Augusterinnen .

Ouch desert and Friedrichstal Palace

The hamlet of Ouch (later Auch , Auche ), the seat of a knight dynasty , has been located where the Friedrichstal forester's lodge stands today since the 13th century . In 1219 a Wilhelm von Ouch was first mentioned in a document. The hamlet was destroyed in the Thirty Years War, and Ouch was mentioned for the last time in 1623 . Count Friedrich III. zu Wied (1634–1698) built a hunting lodge on this site in the 1640s. This castle was laid down in the 19th century. The Fürstlich-Wiedische Forsthaus Friedrichstal stood there until the beginning of the 2010s.

Church and school

Ecclesiastically, Datzeroth belonged to Feldkirchen , today a district of Neuwied, until the Reformation . The responsible cemetery was also located there. From 1400 to 1575 the German rulers in Waldbreitbach held the tithe rights. As a result of the Reformation, the church affiliation was temporarily in Rengsdorf (from 1583 to 1745), temporarily in Altwied (from 1747). During the wars of liberation (1813) the Datzerother had to support 800 Cossacks . In August 1820 a wooden bridge was built over the Wied for the first time. The population is given as 302 souls in 1843. Datzeroth never had its own church or chapel. Today the residents of Datzeroth belong to the Evangelical Church Community in Altwied (Wied church district of the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland ) or to the Catholic parish of St. Laurentius in Niederbreitbach (Deanery Rhein-Wied in the Diocese of Trier ).

From 1817 there was an evangelical elementary school in Datzeroth. The new school building from 1854 existed until 1911, when considerable changes were made with state funds. In 1966 this village school in Datzeroth was closed due to an imminent administrative reform. The first teacher was Görg Matthias Fackert (around 1820), the last teacher was called Gerhard Tröger. Today the children of Datzeroth go to the Neuerburg primary school in Niederbreitbach , the secondary schools are the Deutschherrenschule in Waldbreitbach and the secondary schools and grammar schools in Neuwied and Neustadt (Wied) .

local community

Datzeroth belonged to the County of Wied , from 1784 to the Principality of Wied-Neuwied. In the Middle Ages, Datzeroth was part of the castle truce of Castle Wied (today Altwied). From 1734 the place was under the Heddesdorf administration. In 1806 Datzeroth came to the Duchy of Nassau and in 1815 to Prussia . Until 1848 the place was part of the civil district Neuwied . In 1970 the affiliation of the local community Datzeroth to the newly introduced Verbandsgemeinde Waldbreitbach was ordered, which replaced the previous office of Neuerburg as a regional body. With the dissolution of the Verbandsgemeinde Waldbreitbach on January 1, 2018, the municipality became part of the Verbandsgemeinde Rengsdorf-Waldbreitbach.
