More about the History of Vallendar

Vallendar is first mentioned around 830–840 AC as property of the Archbishop of Trier; it is assumed that it is of Celtic origin and a lot older than that (700–600 BC). In 1143 the Schoenstatt abbey is founded. In 1232 the Count of Sayn takes property of the land and starts constructing a castle at the northern boundaries of the city in 1240. Its foundations today support the Marienburg.

Since the fourteenth century the Archbishop of Trier regained more and more power over the land to become proprietor again in 1681 and 1767 (for good). Today the Lion of Sayn and the Cross of Trier are evidence of this history in Vallendars coat of arms. During the Middle Ages a palatine high court was located in Vallendar. 1802 the proprietorship goes to the Count of Nassau-Weilburg; in 1815 it falls to the Kingdom of Prussia. A rich business life is the reason for Frederick William IV of Prussia to grant city rights to Vallendar in 1856. After World War I the city was the scene for a military action of the 23rd US-Infantry.
