|Location of the city of Nidda in the Wetterau district|
Nidda borders the city of Laubach ( Gießen district ) in the north, the city of Schotten ( Vogelsbergkreis ) and the municipality of Hirzenhain in the east, the city of Ortenberg and the municipality of Ranstadt in the south, the municipality of Echzell in the south-west and the municipality in the west Wölfersheim (all in the Wetterau district) and the city of Hungen (Gießen district).
Nidda consists of the districts of Bad Salzhausen , Borsdorf , Eichelsdorf , Fauerbach , Geiß-Nidda , Harb , Kohden , Michelnau , Nidda, Ober-Lais (with Unter-Lais), Ober-Schmitten , Ober-Widdersheim , Schwickartshausen , Stornfels , Ulfa , Unter-Schmitten , Unter-Widdersheim and Wallernhausen .
The noble free Volkold II. , But perhaps also his father Volkold I von Malsburg , whom he followed as Vogt of the imperial abbey of Fulda over their property in the northern Wetterau , built a circular moated castle in Nidda around 1100 , which the Hohenstaufen emperors to secure the passing trade routes served. (Soon after 1604, when Nidda fell to Hessen-Darmstadt , it was torn down and replaced by a Renaissance castle .) Volkold II moved his residence from Bingenheim Castle to Nidda and founded the family of the Counts of Nidda .
In 1187, Count Berthold II of Nidda transferred the parish of Nidda together with considerable property to the Order of St. John , which then set up a commandery in Nidda . The residential and farm buildings of the order then built determined the image of the city in the following centuries. In 1205, Count Ludwig I von Ziegenhain inherited the small county of Nidda , as his mother Mechthild, sister of the last Count of Nidda, Berthold II, who had died without a male heir, had been her brother's sole heir. In 1234, Nidda was first referred to as a city in a document from Count Gottfried IV and Berthold I von Ziegenhain; In 1218 and 1223 the place was still referred to as "villa".
From 1258 to 1311/1333, the counties of Ziegenhain and Nidda were again divided from one another after an inheritance. It was not until 1333 that reunification took place. Count Johann I von Ziegenhain married the daughter Lukardis (Luitgart) of Count Engelbert I from Nidda in 1311 . He died in 1330 and his daughter remained the nominal regent until 1333. In 1333 Johann von Ziegenhain then united both counties in his hand.
After the counts of Ziegenhain and Nidda died out with the death of Johann II in 1450, the county of Nidda came into the possession of the Landgraves of Hesse . Since then, the title “Graf von Nidda” has been part of the family name in the Hesse family. At that time, the county of Nidda included the office of Nidda with the courts of Widdersheim , Rodheim , Ulfa and Wallernhausen , the rule Lißberg , the Fulda Mark with half of the bailiwicks of Echzell , Berstadt , Dauernheim and Bingenheim (with the exception of the local castle ), and the courts Burkhards and Crainfeld . A late Gothic church tower was added to the Romanesque parish church in 1491, which was extensively renovated in 2012, including the roof tower.
The statistical-topographical-historical description of the Grand Duchy of Hesse reports on Nidda in 1830:
“Nidda (L. Bez. Gl. N.) city; lies in a swampy area on the Nidda, over which a bridge leads here, as well as on the Chaussee that goes from here to Berstadt, which connects there with the Chaussee that leads from Friedberg to Grünberg. The city that is walled and provided with gates. and 486 Hess. (374 Par.) Feet above the sea, and 7 hours southeast of Giessen, has 303 houses and 1700 inhabitants, who are Protestant apart from 3 Catholics and 40 Jews. Nidda is the seat of the district councilor, one district court and the principal collector. You will find 1 beautiful church, which was built in 1617, 1 churchyard chapel, 1 tower, called the Johanniter Tower, with a beautiful bell, 1 castle, 1 town hall, 2 mills, 1 post office, 1 pharmacy. One of the buildings of the castle is inhabited by the district administrator and the other by the district judge. The castle is surrounded by a wall, which is now used as a garden. The foundations of the Altenburg lie on a mountain nearby. Among the inhabitants there are 114 farmers and 108 who do civil trades, and among the latter there are particularly many linen weavers and hosiery workers, as well as tanners. 4 markets are held annually. In 1809 Nidda was so flooded that many families had to take refuge on the second floor and almost all food was carried away or spoiled. Most residents have their cellars in front of the city leagues, and there are few cellars in the city itself. - Nidda appears several times under the name Nitahe in older Fuldischen documents, but without time determination . The Counts of Nidda, who probably took their seat here in the last half of the 11th century, undoubtedly contributed a lot to the rise of the place. A Johanniter-Ordens-Commende existed here, but its origin is unknown. But already in 1234 this order had a pastor here. Ludwig II., Count von Nidda, sold Niederleisa and Jchelshausen to the order in 1278 for 60 marks. Heilwig, Engelbert's I. Count of Nidda widow, bought the goods of the Johanniter zu Nidda in 1330, whereby and since the annual income was only eight marks, the order ceased here. These goods were donated to the Hersfeld Monastery in the same year. In a document from 1206, Count Ludwig von Ziegenhain also listed his castle men ( Castellani in Nitehe ) and the local mayor. In the period from 1218 to 1223 Nidda is called a villa , and in 1234 an oppidum . In 1323, Johann I, Count of Nidda, was enfeoffed by Emperor Ludwig von Baiern with the castle and town of Nidda and affiliations, presumably for the reason that the Fuld monastery caused difficulties. Johann II., Who had also received the enfeoffment in 1420 from Emperor Siegmund, left Nidda to Landgrave Ludwig I, who received the enfeoffment as early as 1434, from the Abbot Johann of Fuld. On August 3, 1437, the landgrave paid homage to the city that the count had granted him during his lifetime. During the Thirty Years' War, an imperial patrol party of 400–500 men attacked the city, penetrated through the gate because of neglected guards on the part of the citizens, shot the porter and spread out to plunder. But the Hessian captain Blum, who was lying with his company in the castle, with the help of the armed citizens drove out the patrol corps, which deployed several times, but finally had to withdraw, but burned a few houses in the suburbs in revenge. After the French invaded the Upper County of Katzenellenbogen in 1688 and also occupied Darmstadt, the court moved to Nidda, from where it withdrew to Giessen. "
