Liederbach borders in the north on the city of Bad Soden am Taunus , in the east on the community Sulzbach (Taunus) , in the south on the independent city of Frankfurt am Main and in the west on the city of Kelkheim (Taunus) .


Liederbach consists of the two districts Niederhofheim and Oberliederbach . Niederhofheim is in the west of the municipality. Oberliederbach occupies the eastern part.

Green center

The landscape of the community is characterized by the so-called "Green Center", which consists largely of cultivated arable land and the generous stream of the Liederbach . The green center corresponds to about one sixth of the total area of ​​Liederbach, and the community is very keen to maintain it.


The Liederbach crosses under the main street at the level of the "Braubach" district

Presumably around 550 the villages Niederhofheim, Oberliederbach and Unterliederbach were founded. The first documentary mention was made in 791 as Leoderbach , which was owned by the Lorsch Monastery . In 1100 Leoderbach passed into the possession of the Lords of Eppstein as a fief . They sold the village to the Landgraviate of Hesse in 1492 . The Reformation found its way into Liederbach in the 17th century.

The communities of Oberliederbach, Unterliederbach and Niederhofheim came to Nassau-Usingen in 1803 and finally, six years later, to the unified Duchy of Nassau . After the German-German War , the three places were assigned to the Prussian province of Hessen-Nassau in 1866 . In 1903, with the Niederhofheim-Oberliederbach station on the Höchst-Königstein railway line, a separate train station was built.

In 1917 Unterliederbach was incorporated into the city of Höchst am Main , which in 1928 became a district of Frankfurt am Main . Oberliederbach and Niederhofheim were integrated into the newly created Main-Taunus district on April 1, 1928.

As part of the Hessian municipal reform , both communities merged on December 31, 1971 to form the new community of Liederbach . The heather settlement to the north was mainly built by the Höchst paintworks in order to offer their employees local accommodation.
