About this picture

Niederwambach is a municipality in the Neuwied district in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate . The municipality belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde Puderbach , which has its administrative seat in the municipality of Puderbach .


The place is a little off the main traffic arteries north of Puderbach on the edge of the Rhine-Westerwald nature park .


The parish of Niederwambach was first mentioned in 1253. The Romanesque Bartholomew Church was built in the second half of the 12th century (tower still preserved). In the course of the Reformation , Protestant worship was introduced in 1556. In 1831 the too small nave was torn down and a late classicist hall church was built by the princely-wied building inspector Johann Heinrich Hartmann. The church was extensively renovated in the 1970s.

Today's community was formed on June 7, 1969 from the dissolved communities Ascheid, Lahrbach and Niederwambach.
