About this picture

Langweiler is a municipality in the Kusel district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Lauterecken-Wolfstein association.


Langweiler is located on the Jeckenbach in the West Palatinate between the Palatinate Forest and the Hunsrück . Around 50 percent of the municipal area is forested. To the north is Sien , east Merzweiler , south Homberg and east is Unterjeckenbach . Langweiler also includes the Ölmühle, Hof vor Fläsling and Tiefentaler Mühle residential areas .


The place was first mentioned in a document in 1276. In the Middle Ages the village was called "Landweiler", probably after a Franconian named Lando. In the 16th century it was renamed and reinterpreted as "Langweiler". During the Thirty Years War , the village was completely destroyed by Croatian mercenaries and remained uninhabited for 12 years.

In 1816 Langweiler came to the Principality of Lichtenberg , a newly created exclave of the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld and, from 1826, the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha . With this it fell to Prussia in 1834 , which created the St. Wendel district from this area . After the main part was separated from the newly created Saar area , the remaining district of Sankt Wendel-Baumholder was created in 1920 , to which the place belonged until 1937, when it was incorporated into the Birkenfeld district.

The former school now serves as a community center.

On October 13, 1939, a British military plane crashed near Langweiler. The pilot survived and was taken to a hospital by the locals. Thirty years later, Colonel Day returned to visit the site of his crash and rescue.
