About this picture

Nanzdietschweiler is a municipality in the Kusel district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It was created in 1969 when the towns of Nanzweiler , Dietschweiler and Nanzdiezweiler were amalgamated to form this new municipality as part of the Rhineland-Palatinate administrative reform . In the following period, Nanzdietschweiler developed primarily into a residential community. Nanzdietschweiler has been part of the Oberes Glantal community since 2017 , and before that it was part of the Glan-Münchweiler community .


Nanzdietschweiler is located in the upper Glan Valley at the transition from the Landstuhler Bruch to the North Palatinate Bergland . The place is between 220 m and 250  m above sea level. NHN . The highest elevations in the district reach 384  m above sea level. NHN . The place is characterized by forests, meadows and the species-rich Glan that are inviting for hiking and flow through the bird and nature reserve "Heimerbrühl", which is interesting for ornithologists.

The community used to be divided into three parts: Nanzweiler, Dietschweiler and Nanzdiezweiler. In addition there was a cross, which is counted to Dietschweiler. The border ran with the Glan (Nanzweiler / Nanzdiezweiler) and at the level of today's sports field (Nanzweiler / Dietschweiler). The district of Kreuz with the old grain mill, the Dietschweiler Mühle , is an exception. Although it is on the right side of the Glans (Nanzdiezweiler), it belongs to Dietschweiler.

182 hectares of the district are forested and 26 hectares are populated.


Nanzweiler was first mentioned in 1350 as Nantzwilre , Dietschweiler in 1436 as Dyetzwiller . The settlement area of ​​both places extended on both sides of the Glans. The side to the left of the Glans was subordinate to the Hornbach monastery and from the 16th century to the lords and later counts of the Leyen . The side to the right of the Glans was an imperial estate and was under the Electoral Palatinate from the 15th century . To the right of the Glans, two further communities Nanzweiler and Diezweiler developed, which were merged into Nanzdiezweiler in 1816.

From 1798 to 1814, when the Palatinate was part of the First French Republic (until 1804) and then part of the First French Empire , the places on the right of the Glans were in the canton of Landstuhl in the Donnersberg department and the places on the left of the Glans in the canton of Waldmohr in Saardepartement incorporated. In 1816 they came to the Kingdom of Bavaria . The division into the two cantons remained in place until the middle of the 19th century, but from 1818 on both cantons belonged together to the Homburg Land Commissioner .

In the course of the Rhineland-Palatinate administrative reform, the new local community Nanzdietschweiler was formed on June 7, 1969 from the three previously independent communities of Dietschweiler, Nanzdiezweiler and Nanzweiler. The name of the new municipality is made up of elements from all three districts.

Entrance building of the Dietschweiler train station

The places that belong to the municipality today were connected to the railway network in 1904 with the opening of the Glantalbahn . The station in question was initially called Dietschweiler-Nanzweiler before it was renamed Dietschweiler in 1912 . At the beginning of the 1960s, the Nanzweiler stop was opened one kilometer north , which should revitalize the said railway line in the southern section Homburg - Glan-Münchweiler . It was closed again in the late 1970s. Passenger traffic was stopped in 1981; since the freight traffic between Schönenberg-Kübelberg and Glan-Münchweiler had already been discontinued, it was henceforth without regular traffic. The tracks were dismantled at the end of the 1980s. In 2002, the Glan-Blies-Weg , which was completed in 2006 in full, was opened on the route .
