Niederbachheim is located in the Taunus in the so-called Blauer Ländchen , a region around the small town of Nastätten not far from Landesstraße 335. Neighboring towns are Oberbachheim in the west (1 km), Kehlbach and Dessighofen in the north (1 km), Geisig in the northeast (2 km), Marienfels in the southeast (3 km) and Gemmerich in the south (2 km).
Niederbachheim was probably already settled in Franconian times. The place was first mentioned in 1145 as Bacheim as an estate of the Schönau monastery , whereby it can be assumed that this estate was in Niederbachheim. At first the place belonged to the Einrichgau in the possession of the Count of Arnstein . Later it went to the Lords of Isenburg and in 1160 to the Counts of Nassau and the Counts of Katzenelnbogen . Niederbachheim belonged to the Zweiherrischen, a condominium , that is, it was ruled by the two rulers mentioned above, who had to agree on government issues in order to make a decision.
The mill in Bachheim, which had to pay monetary interest to the Eberbach Abbey in the Rheingau in 1245, was in or in the immediate vicinity of Niederbachheim. In 1357 the chapel in Niederbachheim was separated from Marienfels as an independent parish church . Niederbachheim and the neighboring town of Oberbachheim were first distinguished in a document in 1361 with the addition of Ober and Nieder .
After the counts of Katzenenelnbogen died out in 1479, their part went to the Landgraves of Hesse (they therefore had a say).
The Reformation was introduced in 1541.
The plague and war were responsible for the fact that Niederbachheim burned down in 1637 and was still empty in 1648 before it was repopulated.
The dichotomy was dissolved in 1803. In 1806 Niederbachheim came to the newly founded Duchy of Nassau . There it belonged to the Braubach office.
After the end of the First World War it belonged to the French zone of occupation until 1929.
On March 27, 1945 Niederbachheim was taken by US troops.
The local mayor of Niederbachheim is Volker Palm. In the direct election on May 26, 2019, he was re-elected with 91.19% of the vote.
