|Location of the local community of Dreis-Brück in the Vulkaneifel district|
The community is divided into the districts of Dreis and Brück. The living spaces Berghof, Dreisermühle and Wiesenhof also belong to Dreis .
Dreis was first mentioned in 1143. The place name " Dreis " is obviously derived from the Old High German word "triusan" (gushing, trickling). The name has been modified in many ways over the centuries: In the 16th century, in addition to the spelling “Dreis”, “Dreys” and “Dreyss” are also found. In the 17th century, in addition to "Dreyß", "Dreiß" and "Driest" appear, which in the 18th century can already be found in the "Dryesd" version. The spelling “Dress” is also proven.
Brück was first mentioned in the 14th century.
Until the end of the 18th century, Dreis and Brück belonged to the imperial direct rule of Kerpen , which was owned by the Dukes of Arenberg . A part of the village of Brück belonged to the electoral district of Elmen .

Merger of the municipalities of Dreis and Brück
In a letter dated August 28, 1968, the Daun district and city administration informed the district office in Daun: “The draft of a fourth law on administrative reform in Rhineland-Palatinate, which is available in the state parliament and which has already been discussed in the first reading, provides for the local area Incorporation u. a. of the places ... Dockweiler, Dreis and possibly also Brück vor “. The municipal administration Dockweiler was in their community planning on a merger of the municipalities and Dockweiler Dreis, possibly very interested with bridge and Betteldorf. Despite intensive efforts to merge these four places, no agreement could be reached, so that the whole matter failed due to many counter-arguments and different opinions.
On April 20, 1969, the Mainz Interior Ministry published a decree on the formation of association communities in the administrative districts of Koblenz and Trier . The District Office of Daun passed the decree within the district of Daun (since January 1, 2007 district of Vulkaneifel ) to the municipalities belonging to the association. a. the target planning to assign the municipality of Brück to the association municipality of Kelberg in the future . This rejected the citizenship as well as the municipal council.
On May 19, 1970, the Dreis local council decided on the two alternatives:
- Dissolution of both communities and formation of a new community from the previous communities of Dreis and Brück;
- Incorporation of the municipality of Brück into the municipality of Dreis;
The citizenry of Brück decided with 99.33% to merge with Dreis, but the name Brück should be continued.
On May 22, 1970, the municipal council and the Daun city council as well as 16 neighboring municipalities approved the target planning for the formation of new municipalities. The resolution on the merger was passed on to the Trier district government in a positive manner.
On June 26, 1970, the Brück municipal administration declared in letters of the same name to various political addressees that they extremely regretted the planned assignment of the Brück municipality to the Kelberg association against the will of the municipal council and the population. On August 5, 1970, Brück finally lodged a constitutional complaint with the Constitutional Court .
On December 20, 1973, the municipality of Brück was dissolved and incorporated into the municipality of Dreis with effect from March 16, 1974. In February 1974, the two municipal councils of Dreis and Brück decided on a dispute agreement and the incorporation of the municipality of Brück.
On August 15, 1977, the Trier district government gave the local community of Dreis the new name "Dreis-Brück". Attribution came into effect on September 1, 1977.

coat of arms
Blazon : “In a red shield head three golden roses with red clusters. Underneath in silver a black arched bridge with two pillars, above a blue two-bowl fountain with a split, blue water jet. "
The coat of arms was designed by Friedbert Wißkirchen. In 1986, the Trier district government granted permission to use the municipal coat of arms.
|Justification of the coat of arms: The shield head refers to the historical past of the local community. The formerly independent places Dreis and Brück originally belonged to the Counts of Manderscheid as owners of the Kerpen estate ; this later passed to the dukes of Arenberg due to an inheritance division . The Dukes of Arenberg had three roses in their seal. The coat of arms colors of the Counts of Manderscheid are gold and red. The black arch bridge in the lower part of the coat of arms is supposed to symbolize the place name Brück. The two-bowl fountain above it indicates the hot spring ("Drees"), from which the district of Dreis owes its name. The representation of the fountain also documents that in Dreis there is the "Vulkania spring", a state-approved healing spring.|
