About this picture

Kludenbach is a municipality in the Rhein-Hunsrück district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Kirchberg (Hunsrück) community .


Kludenbach is located on the upper reaches, Binger Bach, of the Kyrbach on the central Hunsrück plateau. The federal highway 421 runs east, the federal highway 327 north of the place.


Prehistoric and early historical burial mounds can be found south of Kludenbach directly on the boundary of Metzenhausen. It was first mentioned in 1173 in a deed of donation from the Springiersbach monastery (Knight Richard von Clodenbach). The Counts of Sponheim had a farm in Kludenbach. There were also tithe rights of the Counts of Sponheim and the Knights of Wildberg. The Ravengiersburg monastery was also wealthy here.

An early desolation in Lampenrode still lives on in the name of Lampertsmühle .

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 .

Iron ore was mined east of the B 421 in the 19th century.

Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Location description

The place is dominated by the parish hall, which is reminiscent of a village church with its small onion dome and bell. There are very few Evangelical believers in the traditionally Catholic town. Today the Catholics are looked after from the Ravengiersburg monastery .

There used to be two mills near the village, the upper mill, the Lambertsmühle am Bingerbach, was also fed by farmers from Kappel. In a second mill ditch along the slope, water from the Rielser Bach, which only flows below the Binger Bach, was fed to it.

The Kludenbacher Mühle is located below Kludenbach. From here the brook bears the name Brühlbach. Both mills are now used as residential buildings. Bach, mills and former landowners are reflected in the local coat of arms.

coat of arms

Kludenbach coat of arms
Blazon : " Diagonally divided on the left, an eight-spoke golden mill wheel in red above a silver wave bar, at the back sheathed in blue and gold, covered with a curved red-silver alternating."
Justification of the coat of arms: The chess of blue and gold indicates the former belonging to the county of Sponheim. The wheel is reminiscent of the two mills that used to be operated in the district, and the wavy bar provides a reference to the basic word -bach in the place name. The crook refers to the Ravengiersburg monastery, which owned seven fiefs in Kludenbach.


  • Horst Gehann , (1928–2007, last lived and died in the Lambertsmühle), conductor, composer, concert organist, harpsichordist and music publisher, his publishing house continues to exist here.
