About this picture

The Rheinhöhenort Perscheid is a municipality in the Rhein-Hunsrück district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Hunsrück-Mittelrhein community .


Perscheid is located on the eastern edge of the Hunsrück on a ridge between the Rhine Valley and the A 61 .


Excavations and grave finds around Perscheid indicate settlements during the Hallstatt period (~ 1500–1200 BC). Finds (coins, foundations, temple fragments) from Roman times indicate a settlement from this time. The place was first mentioned in 1248 as the village of Perrischeit . The Archbishopric of Trier exercised the state sovereignty . After the occupation of the left bank of the Rhine by French revolutionary troops (1794), the place became French and from 1798 to 1814 belonged to the canton of Bacharach in the Rhine-Moselle department . In 1815 the region was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna . After the First World War temporarily occupied by the French, the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate since 1946.
