Location in the city of Trier

Ehrang / Quint is one of the 19 districts of the city ​​of Trier in Rhineland-Palatinate . In terms of area, it is the largest district in the city and includes, among other things, several residential areas that are somewhat demarcated due to their geographical location (Vordere and Hintere Heide, the former military settlement “Auf der Bausch”).


The district is divided into the districts Ehrang and Quint and is located in the northeast of the city on the left bank of the Moselle . In Ehrang the Kyll flows into the Moselle, in Quint the Quintbach . Ehrang / Quint is the northernmost district of Trier. Neighboring districts are Pfalzel , Biewer and separated by the Moselle Ruwer / Eitelsbach .

Trier-Ehrang / Quint includes residential areas that are remote on the first elevations of the Eifel . Two outdoor residential areas are the Vordere Heide (227 m. Above sea level) and Hintere Heide (243 m. Above sea level) residential areas in the Meulenwald , which were created in the 1970s, with the sports facilities in between, including the SV Ehrang football field. A Middle Heath was also planned in the 1970s, but never implemented. Another outlying residential complex is the former military settlement on the Bausch (251 m above sea level).

The name Ehrang comes from a Celtic leader named Irus, who chose the area of ​​the mouth of the Kyll as a settlement because of its favorable location, which was named after him Yranc or Irancum. An important Celtic trade route leads there over the Kyll. The Romans later built a bridge at this point and erected monuments and sanctuaries nearby.

The name Quint comes from Roman times and is derived from its location on the fifth milestone (ad quintum lapidem) along the Roman road from Trier to Andernach . 1346 Ehrang received under the later German Emperor Charles IV. , The town charter to Frankfurt law. In 1683, an ironworks and foundry was built in Quint under the founding father Franz von Pidoll .

On March 1, 1968, the two independent communities Ehrang and Pfalzel were merged into one large community . Only one year later, however, on June 7, 1969, the Ehrang-Pfalzel community was incorporated into the city of Trier; at that time it had 12,131 inhabitants. Pfalzel and Ehrang / Quint have been local districts of the city of Trier since then . Today Ehrang / Quint is one of the largest and still most independent districts of Trier; With its own infrastructure such as a hospital, school center and train stations, it forms "a small town in itself".

In the local rail passenger transport , the following lines operate mostly every hour:

  • Eifelbahn (RB 22) Gerolstein - Trier (only serves Ehrang station ); Trains come from Cologne Messe / Deutz and continue in the opposite direction from Gerolstein as RE 22

The two remote districts "Auf der Bausch" and "Heide" are connected by line 17 (Stadtwerke Trier) to the Ehranger town center, the train station and the buses to the city center. Line 27 ( Moselbahn ) connects Ehrang with the community of Zemmer and its districts, with trains to Trier city center at the Ehrang Ort train station and vice versa. There are also bus connections between several other places and the Mäusheckerweg school center.

It was mentioned as a folk festival as early as 1350. The Ehranger market was originally a cattle market where the Eifel , Hunsrück and Moselle farmers could exchange their animals and goods. Back then, the first Tuesday in September was the traditional market day . For this reason, the festival now takes place on the weekend before the first Tuesday in September and ends with a big fireworks display on Tuesday evening. The Ehranger Market is supported by the numerous voluntary helpers from the various local associations that have come together in the Ehranger Ortsvereine (GEOV).
