|Location of the local community Dichtelbach in the Rhein-Hunsrück district|
Dichtelbach is located in the eastern part of the Hunsrück , between the federal highway 61 and the Binger Forest . The village is on the old Roman road, the so-called Ausoniusstraße , which led from Trier to Bacharach . The place derives its name from the "Dichtelbach" which flows into the Guldenbach between Rheinböllen and Rheinböllerhütte .
The name is actually derived from Dadilebach , which means something like Feuerbach. It was called Feuerbach because of the many charcoal piles in the forest.
The Heidehof residential area also belongs to Dichtelbach.
Dichtelbach was first mentioned in a document in 996. The rulers were the dukes of Palatinate-Simmern and from 1673 the electors of the Palatinate . With the occupation of the Left Bank of the Rhine in 1794 by French revolutionary troops , the place became French, in 1815 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna . Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
From 1986 to 1991 American Patriot missiles for anti-aircraft missiles were stationed on the Kandrich near Dichtelbach . A barrack in the forest and eight horseshoe-shaped protective walls on the Kandrich, where there are three wind turbines today, bear witness to this. In front of the Patriot anti-aircraft missiles, there was a radar station on the Kandrich, which was used to guide the Nike missiles , which were stationed on Grundlos-Wies until 1983 . At the end of the Cold War, the military facility on the Kandrich was given up, the barracks and the Bundeswehr mobilization base, built in 1992 on the Grundlos-Wies near Dichtelbach, followed by 2006.
