About this picture

Niederneisen is a municipality in the Rhein-Lahn district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the municipality of Aar-Einrich .


170 m above Niederneisen

Niederneisen is located in the Taunus on the Aar river, six kilometers south of Limburg an der Lahn .


Grave finds in Schönborner Strasse from Franconian times already show an early settlement around 600. These finds are now in the Diez Local History Museum .

The first documentary mention dates back to the year 790. This document includes the donation of Niederneisen and some of the surrounding villages from Charlemagne to the Prüm Abbey .

The place belonged from 1815 to the office of Diez of the Duchy of Nassau after the office of Flacht was dissolved. After the annexation by Prussia in 1866, the Unterlahnkreis was set up with Diez as a district town. Since its dissolution, Niederneisen has belonged to the Rhein-Lahn district.

In 1859 a community bakery was built, which also took on the functions of a town hall and had a bell tower. Today the entire building is used as the town hall.

In 1818 school lessons were first given in Niederneisen, initially in private homes. In 1823 the no longer existing school building was completed. In 1925 a new school building was built, which was used for this purpose until 1975, at last only as a primary school. The gym was built in 1926 and the sports field was inaugurated in 1928. In 1934 the first Niederneisen kindergarten started operations. Today's sports hall was built in 1967. From 1898 to 1977 there was a dairy in town. In 1995 today's school building was completed and moved into.

The population developed in the 19th and 20th centuries as follows: 1843: 673 inhabitants, 1927: 961 inhabitants, 1964: 1164 inhabitants.


In Flacht , a church is documented for the year 881, so the place should have been the ecclesiastical center for the surrounding places quite early and was also the main place of the Flacht office, to which Niederneisen belonged, until 1815. In 1815 the Flacht office was dissolved, and the Flacht parish, to which Niederneisen belongs, still exists today.

Economy and Infrastructure


The B 54 runs in north-south direction through Niederneisen. The closest motorway junctions are at Limburg an der Lahn on the A3 .

The Aartalbahn , currently only operated with handcars , runs through the area of ​​the local community of Niederneisen, but the place does not have a train station. In mid-2015, the Aartalbahn was to be reactivated for public transport on the section from Limburg to Zollhaus at hourly intervals. In the event of reactivation, Niederneisen is to receive a breakpoint . Reactivation continues to be delayed as a new environmental impact study is being made. The Rhineland-Palatinate Court of Auditors announced in February 2018 that reactivation was not economical. However, the State Ministry of Economics has the last word. In the meantime, Hessen and Rhineland-Palatinate, together with the responsible transport authorities, SPNV-Nord and Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund as well as the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis, are examining the reactivation of the cross-border Aartalbahn from Wiesbaden via Bad Schwalbach to Diez and Limburg in a feasibility study. The closest long-distance train station is the Limburg Süd train station in Limburg an der Lahn.


Today, Niederneisen is the location of a primary school and a day-care center . Niederneisen was the catchment area of ​​the school in Flacht until 1818, when an elementary school was set up in Niederneisen , initially in private homes. In 1823 a school was inaugurated opposite the town hall. This school building was used until a new school was built in 1925, which was built in Schulstrasse and had served as a pure elementary school since 1975. In 1995, today's Flacht / Niederneisen elementary school was built on Mühlgasse in Niederneisen . The first kindergarten was established in 1934.
