    Waldeck Castle

    Castle Waldeck within the limits of the village of Dorweiler in Dommershausen in the Rhein-Hunsrück-Kreis (district) in Rhineland-Palatinate was the main seat of the Hunsrück Family Boos.

    The ruin lies high above the Baybach valley. William I of Heinzenberg built the fortress in 1150 and, in so doing, established the "Boos-Waldeck" house which was later to become widespread.

    The mediaeval castle endured several wars, and was partially destroyed by the French (1689) in the course of the Nine Years' War (known in Germany as the Pfälzischer Erbfolgekrieg, or War of the Palatine Succession).

    The first documentary mention of the castle complex (within the area of the today's ruins) originates from the year 1243. In that document, the knights Heribert, Udo (Rudolf) and Winand (surnames Boos von Waldeck, Boose of Walthecce) officially received ownership rights. Around 1250 Rudolf (Udo) Boos von Waldeck built the bailey. The two parts of the castle are cited in a document in 1285. The castle was in use until 1833 when the family of Boos von Waldeck sold its holdings in the Rhineland.

More about the History of Dommershausen

In 1220, Dommershausen had its first documentary mention as Dumershusen. What the mention reveals is that Dumershusen was not subject to any kind of taxation. The village belonged to the Beltheim Court and thereby lay under three lordships: the Electorate of Trier, the Counts of Sponheim and the Lords of Braunshorn. After this last family died out, their share in the Court passed to the family Winneburg, and after this family also died out, the share passed to the family Metternich. Beginning in 1794, Dommershausen lay under French rule. In 1815 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. Since 1946, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

The municipality in its current form came into being on 17 March 1974 through the amalgamation of the old municipality of Dommershausen with the three formerly self-administering municipalities of Dorweiler, Eveshausen and Sabershausen.
