The place was first mentioned in a document under the name "Mohlenbach" in 1398. The remains of a Roman country house , which is likely to date from the 2nd or 3rd century, however, indicate the first settlement around a thousand years earlier.

Today's local community is believed to have grown together from originally four courtyards. Müllenbach belonged to the Lords of Daun until 1427 and was bought by Kurtrier in whose rulership the place remained until the end of the 18th century. The place was under the administration and the court of the office of Daun. The Maximin monastery in Trier had landlord rights. Ecclesiastically, the entire Daun office and thus Müllenbach belonged to the Archdiocese of Cologne . In the 17th century the landlord rights were bought from the local farmers and the feudal relationship with Maximin Abbey ended and the inhabitants of Müllenbach became free farmers. The preserved municipal code from 1754 comprised 42 articles and a mayor was elected annually.

In 1563 Müllenbach was the fourth largest town in the Daun district with 32 fireplaces (households). Due to the Thirty Years War and the plague (1628), Müllenbach only had 20 families in 1652.

During the time of the French administration, the place went to the Mairie Adenau in the canton Adenau , which belonged to the arrondissement of Bonn in the Rhine-Mosel department . In the Prussian period that followed in 1815 , Müllenbach was part of the Kelberg mayor's office in the Adenau district and the Koblenz administrative district . After the Adenau district was dissolved in 1932, Müllenbach became part of the Ahrweiler district . Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate .


Municipal council

The council in Müllenbach consists of eight council members, who in the local elections on May 26, 2019 in a majority vote were elected, and the honorary mayor as chairman.


Matthias Rieder became the local mayor of Müllenbach on October 2, 2019. Since there was no candidate for the direct election on May 26, 2019, the upcoming election of the mayor was incumbent on the council in accordance with municipal regulations. He chose Rieder in the second attempt after no candidates had been found at the constituent meeting.

Rieder's predecessor as local mayor was Udo Mergen, who no longer ran for local mayor in 2019.

coat of arms

The blazon of the coat of arms reads: “An oblique left blue wavy strip, above a red mill wheel. Below the middle part of a red slanting grid with only one opening, accompanied at the bottom right by a red ear of wheat, at the top left by a red crook of a crook.

The mill wheel and the wave ledge as a symbol for a brook indicate the place name as “ talking parts of the coat of arms ”. The red sloping grid in gold comes from the coat of arms of the Counts of Daun, the original rulers of Müllenbach. The patron saints of the parish church of Müllenbach are Servatius and Dorothea . The crosier in the coat of arms is the attribute of Servatius, the ear as a fruit is the attribute of Dorothea.

The coat of arms was approved on December 20, 1993.
