More about the History of Bengel

In Springiersbach in 1102, the Augustinian Springiersbach Monastery was founded, to which the village of Bengel and also Neithof were assigned. Beginning in 1794, Bengel lay under French hegemony. In 1802, the church and the monastery in Springiersbach were secularized. To save the almost new church from being torn down, the Bishop of Trier (Trier vacation rentals | Trier travel guide) raised it to Parish Church of Bengel. In 1815, the municipality was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. Since 1947, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
