Before 1798, the municipalities of what is now Bad Kreuznach belonged to completely different manors.
From 1798 to 1938, the municipalities already belonged together to a higher administrative unit. From 1798 these were the canton of Wöllstein , from February 5, 1835, the district of Bingen , from 1848 the administrative district of Mainz, and from 1852 to November 1, 1938, the district of Alzey . The next higher-ranking territorial units were the Arrondissement de Mayence from 1798 and the province of Rheinhessen from 1816 . On November 1, 1938, the communities to the north were again added to the Bingen district.
The one hundred and twenty years of former political affiliation to the province of Rheinhessen has the effect of a bond with the Rheinhessen region and the Rheinhessen wine-growing region despite today's political orientation towards the local area .
The Verbandsgemeinde Bad Kreuznach was formed in the course of the regional reform of June 7, 1969 from the disbanded districts of Bingen and Alzey and the district of Bad Kreuznach added communities. The four communities in the south of Frei-Laubersheim, Fürfeld, Neu-Bamberg and Tiefenthal came from the Alzey district , the five to the north from the Bingen district .
Since 2017, the development of the number of inhabitants has been based on the area of today's Verbandsgemeinde Bad Kreuznach, but previously within the limits that were valid until then; for the area added in 2017, the values calculated for the community of Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg are to be used for the area status at the time of its dissolution and the values for the local communities of Duchroth, Niederhausen, Norheim, Oberhausen an der Nahe and Traisen are to be subtracted. The values from 1871 to 1987 are based on censuses:
