About this picture

Dennweiler-Frohnbach is a municipality in the Kusel district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the community of Kusel-Altenglan .


Dennweiler-Frohnbach is located in the Saar-Nahe mountainous region . The Frohnbacherhof residential area also belongs to the community . Dennweiler-Frohnbach borders in the east on Oberalben , in the south and west on Körborn and in the north on the town of Baumholder and the military training area .


Dennweiler was first mentioned in 1270 as "Dennewilre" in a document from Heinrich von Veldenz and Geroldseck . Frohnbach followed in 1302 as "Vronebach" in a certificate from the knight Bertram von Wadenau .

The brook Kaueralb (Kuralb, Stegbach) originally separated the two places into different domains. Dennweiler (left or north of the brook) belonged to the Remigiusland , Frohnbach to the diocese of Verdun . In the 12th century, both areas were taken over by the Counts of Veldenz as bailiwicks. Dennweiler was subordinate to the Veldenzer Amt Lichtenberg, Frohnbach to the Amt Baumholder. In 1444 the County of Veldenz , including the two villages, came to the Duchy of Pfalz-Zweibrücken . After a description of the district court zweibrückischen Baumholder of 1570/71 Dennweiler is as Lehen of Messrs of Lichtenberg described Frohnbach (outside the district court) directly to the Duke Johann I. shelter. Dennweiler consisted of eight, Frohnbach only three houses. Both villages became extinct during the Thirty Years War .

At the end of the 18th century, both villages were subordinate to the Konken mayor in the Zweibrücken Oberamt Lichtenberg .

After 1792 French revolutionary troops occupied the region and annexed it after the Peace of Campo Formio (1797) . From 1798 to 1814 the two villages belonged to the French Saardepartement and were assigned to the canton of Kusel . In 1802 both villages had 192 inhabitants together. Due to the agreements reached at the Congress of Vienna (1815) and an exchange contract with Austria , the region became part of the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1816 . From 1818 Dennweiler and Frohnbach were assigned to the Kusel Land Commissioner in the Bavarian Rhine District, later to the Kusel District Office, from which the Kaiserslautern District emerged in 1938 . In the cantonal division of the Rhine district issued by the Bavarian king on November 17, 1817, Dennweiler and Frohnbach were listed individually as communities, in a description of the Rhine district from 1837 both villages were referred to as "forming a community".

In 2017, a merger with the neighboring municipality of Oberalben was considered. After assessing the advantages and disadvantages, the two municipal councils unanimously decided in a joint meeting on August 10, 2018 not to pursue this plan any further.
