More about the History of Wallmerod
On 4 February 1276, Wallmerode had its first documentary mention. On this day the Archbishops of Cologne (Cologne vacation rentals | Cologne travel guide) and Trier (Trier vacation rentals | Trier travel guide) and the Counts Gerhard von Diez (Diez vacation rentals | Diez travel guide), Heinrich von Sponheim and Diether von Molsberg all met, at which time Count Diether von Molsberg and his wife, Lisa von Isenburg, sealed a pledge in future not to harm the Marienstatt Monastery any longer, and to relinquish thereto all rights for evermore. Thus, in two archbishops’ and several princes’ presence, was a longstanding dispute between the Marienstatt Monastery and the Lords of Molsberg laid to rest.
