More about the History of Lutzerath
In 1051, Lutzerath had its first documentary mention and was long an Electoral-Trier holding. In 1726, a main post office with a horse-changing station was built in Lutzerath. With the French Revolutionary occupation of the lands on the Rhine’s left bank between 1794 and 1796, Lutzerath passed to the canton of Lutzerath. 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 outlying centre of Driesch formed together with Lutzerath a single municipality until 1922 when it became a separate one. On 7 June 1969, however, it was amalgamated with Lutzerath once again.
