About this picture

Pleizenhausen is a municipality in the Rhein-Hunsrück district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Simmern-Rheinböllen community .


The residential community with a village character is located immediately to the west of the Simmerbach and Wahlbachtal talks and around one kilometer east of the Simmern-Koblenz road. The union of the Simmer, Benzweiler and Wahlbach takes place at the nearby Weißmühle. The northeastern Geiersberg is clearly recognizable as a striking ridge between the valleys of the Simmerbach and the Benzweiler-Bach in a hillshade map .


Pleizenhausen was first mentioned in a document in 1098: Emperor Heinrich IV confirmed all his possessions to the Simeonstift in Trier and listed more than sixty goods and authorizations by name. However, it can be assumed that human settlements were located much earlier in the area of ​​the current district, because in the south-west of the village you can still find remains of a former Roman villa rustica in the fields . A Roman road that had long been suspected also came to light during road construction work .

In 1251 King Wilhelm of Holland had an army camp at Pleizenhausen, from where he moved on to Boppard . In the following period, the lordship of Pleizenhausen changed frequently.

In 1263 the knight Eberhard von Sütersten sold the Pleizenhausen Brühl to the Cistercian convent of Kumbd . The Counts of Sponheim and the Lords of Stein-Kallenfels shared the 24 fiefs in equal parts. Everyone was entitled to half of the court cases, penalties and iniquities.

In 1400, Count Palatine Ruprecht Dietmar von Reifenberg enfeoffed with the tithe of Pleizenhausen. In 1500 there were 20 farmsteads, which were divided into the jurisdictions Kurpfalz, Sponheim Kastellaun and those of the Stein-Kallenfelser and the Schmidtburger.

Since 1673 there was a school in Pleizenhausen, whose school district also included the villages of Altweidelbach , Bergenhausen and Ray Various . In 1738 the Altweidelbachers left the group because of the long way to school. In 1971 this school was last taught.

With the occupation of the Left Bank of the Rhine in 1794 by French revolutionary troops , the place became French, in 1815 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna .

During the National Socialist era, a camp of the Reich Labor Service was built between the villages of Bergenhausen and Pleizenhausen , which was completely destroyed by bombs in 1945. During an aerial battle during World War II, three agricultural properties in the town center caught fire from tracer bullets.

After the First World War temporarily occupied by the French again, the place has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate since 1946.
