About this picture
Cancer pond in the district of Sippersfeld

The local community Sippersfeld is located in the Donnersbergkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde Winnweiler , within which it is the third largest local community in terms of population.



The place is on the edge of the Palatinate Forest Nature Park , at the transition from the Palatinate Forest to the North Palatinate Bergland . Over 60 percent of the municipal area is forested. The Pfrimmerhof residential area belongs to Sippersfeld . Neighboring communities are - in clockwise direction - Börrstadt , Breunigweiler , Kerzenheim , Enkenbach-Alsenborn , Neuhemsbach , Gonbach and Winnweiler .

Elevations and waters

In the north-western area of ​​the municipality, the 400.6 meter high Bocksrück extends on the boundary with Winnweiler and Börrstadt . The 377.1 meter high Pfrimmerberg rises to the east of the district on the border with Kerzenheim . The Pfrimm, which runs in a south-north direction in this area, has its source in the eastern municipality . A short time later it picks up the Bruchbach from the left and then flows through the crab pond. The Sippersfelder Bach rises to the east of the settlement area ; its confluence with the Pfrimm is already beyond the municipality marker.


Sippersfeld was first mentioned in 1019 as "Sipperadesvelt" (according to another source "Syperadesfeld") in a document from the Archbishop of Mainz, Erkanbald . Sippersfeld was assigned to the church in Münchweiler ("Minchwillera").

The name means field of Sintperath (Simprecht, Sindbert, Simper).

In 1190 Werner II von Bolanden had the entire forest belonging to Sippersfeld as a fiefdom from the Count of Saar Werden . Count Heinrich II. Von Zweibrücken , Herr zu Stauf , and his wife Agnes, donated their estate in Sippersfeld to the Rosenthal monastery in 1248 . Later the place belonged to the lordship of Kirchheim and Stauf until the end of the 18th century .

After 1792 French revolutionary troops occupied the region and annexed it after the Peace of Campo Formio (1797) . From 1798 to 1814 the village belonged to the French department of Donnersberg and was assigned to the canton of Winnweiler . Due to the agreements reached at the Congress of Vienna (1815) and an exchange contract with Austria , the region became part of the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1816 . From 1818 the municipality of Sippersfeld was part of the Kaiserslautern Land Commissioner in the Bavarian Rhine District, later assigned to the Kaiserslautern District Office, from which the Kaiserslautern District emerged in 1938 . After the Second World War , Sippersfeld was part of the French occupation zone and was incorporated into the newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate in 1946. In the course of the first Rhineland-Palatinate administrative reform , the place changed to the newly created Donnersbergkreis ; three years later, the community was incorporated into the also newly created community of Winnweiler .
