|Location of the local community Racksen in the district of Altenkirchen (Westerwald)|
Racksen consists of the two roughly equal districts of Racksen and Nassen. It is located about 1.5 km west of the national road 256 between Bruchertseifen and Eichelhardt and 1.5 km east of the former Franciscan monastery Marienthal .
In 1653 a Philipp Röder von Nassen is mentioned who leased the "Alpenroder Mühle" in Alpenrod -Hirtscheid. For a long time there has been a close cooperation with the community of Isert , with whom the two present-day districts of Racksen built a joint schoolhouse in 1860: the so-called "House in the Sun", now privately owned and used as a residential building. In 1989 the three villages again jointly built a community center.
