Trimbs is a municipality in the Mayen-Koblenz district in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Maifeld Association , which has its administrative headquarters in the city of Polch .


Trimbs is six kilometers east of Mayen and three kilometers north of Polch on the left bank of the Nette . The village extends into a 400 m wide valley widening of the Nette, increasing in height to the north, as well as into a side valley. It covers altitudes between 175  m above sea level. NHN and 240  m above sea level NHN . In terms of natural space, the south-eastern section of the municipal area can be assigned to the main town of Pellenzhöhe , while the entire north-west of it can be assigned to the hardly wooded Pellenz depression . The municipal area reaches its highest point at 310  m above sea level. NHN on its southwestern border.

Trimbs includes the district Kellbach and the residential areas Birkenhof, Kürmeterhöfe, Nettehof and (group of houses) Straßburgerhaus.


Trimbs is mentioned for the first time as Trimizze in a document from the year 1019 Henry II in favor of Kaufungen Abbey. At that time Trimbs was given to the Kaufung nuns, along with other places. A board of the certificate in the original script is on one of the three slate blocks on the Trimbser village square.

On December 31, 1975, the then independent municipality Trimbs was incorporated as a district in the municipality Welling . On April 1, 1994, this two-part community Welling was dissolved and the original communities Trimbs and Welling formed anew.

Peter Schmitt became the local mayor of Trimbs in 2009. In the direct election on May 26, 2019, he was confirmed in his office for a further five years with 94.08% of the votes. Schmitt is the successor to Karl-Willi Grom, who was previously mayor and mayor for 33 years.


A popular hiking destination is the under nature conservation standing Nettetal , as it is almost completely untouched. On May 31, 2009 the new 9.2 km long dream path was opened in Trimbs . The dream path allows insights into the earth's and natural history. The Nette slate path begins in the middle of Trimbs on the village square at the old Nettebrücke. The Nette was voted the river landscape of the year 2008/2009.


The former parish church from 1738 is dedicated to St. Consecrated Peter. Trimbs has not had its own parish since 1805. Trimbs was assigned to the parish of Welling. The church was completely renovated a few years ago, and old wall paintings were found, which could be highlighted again in the course of this renovation.


Sights include not only the church, but also a group of three blocks of slate on the village square. The first block of slate is reminiscent of the formerly very intensive mining in and around Trimbs. The coats of arms of the Trimbser local clubs, "TV 1911" (sports club), "MGV Eintracht" (men's choir) and the "MC Arion" (mandolin club) are engraved on the back. On block 2 you can see the patron saint of miners, St. Barbara on the front and the Trimbser Church with the patron saint Peter on the back. Block 3 shows on the front the Trimbser Mühle, which ran until the early 1960s. On the back there is a plate made of copper, which in the original script from 1019 provides evidence of the foundation of today's Trimbs. The place can now look back on 990 years of history. The former oil mill ("Ollesmüll") only exists as a lifelike, beautiful 1:12 replica on the place where the "original" was. Behind the church there is also a war memorial, which names the dead of the First and Second World Wars. There are also various old crosses from graves from the last centuries.
