About this picture
The site of Dreisen

Dreisen is a municipality in the Donnersbergkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Göllheim community .



Dreisen is located southeast of the Donnersberga in the Börrstadter Senke , alternatively called Kaiserstraßensenke , between Kaiserslautern and Worms . Dreisen also includes the living spaces at Dreisen train station, Bannholz , Hollidahof, Im Talweg, In den Kappenäckern, Lochmühle, Lohmühle and Münsterhof . Neighboring communities are - in clockwise direction - Weitersweiler , Marnheim , Göllheim , Breunigweiler , Börrstadt , Standenbühl and Steinbach am Donnersberg .


Straight through the town flows the Pfrimm . Its left tributary Entenpfuhler Graben largely forms the border with Standenbühl. The Hasenbach coming from the right partially marks the border to Göllheim. In the northeast of the district, the Pfrimm takes the brook from the Elbisheimerhof from the right and the Rosengartenbach from the left .


Dreisen is first mentioned in a document in 960 and at that time it was owned by the nearby Münsterdreisen monastery . In 1376, Dreisen came to Electoral Palatinate as part of the Bolanden office and in 1706 fell to Nassau-Weilburg .

From 1798 to 1814, when the Palatinate was part of the French Republic (until 1804) and then part of the Napoleonic Empire , Dreyen - as it was spelled at the time - was incorporated into the canton of Göllheim in the Donnersberg department and had its own Mairie . In 1815 the place had a total of 545 inhabitants. In the same year it was added to Austria . Just one year later, the place, like the entire Palatinate, changed to the Kingdom of Bavaria . From 1818 to 1862 Dreisen belonged to the Land Commissioner Kirchheim - later Kirchhheimbolanden ; from this the district office of Kirchhheimbolanden emerged.

From 1939 the place was part of the Kirchheimbolanden district . After the Second World War , Ramsen became part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate within the French occupation zone . In the course of the first Rhineland-Palatinate administrative reform , Dreisen moved to the newly formed Donnersbergkreis in 1969 ; three years later, the community was incorporated into the Göllheim Association, which was also newly formed .
