Briedern

(35+ reviews from 1 attraction)
Briedern is an Ortsgemeinde – a municipality belonging to a Verbandsgemeinde, a kind of collective municipality – in the Cochem-Zell district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Cochem, whose seat is in the like-named town.GeographyLocationThe municipality lies on the river Moselle upstream from the weir at Bruttig-Fankel between Cochem and Zell in the middle of the Cochemer Krampen, a 24-kilometre-long stretch of the Moselle made up of many winding bows. The municipality’s best known winegrowing operation (Rüberberger Domherrenberg) is found on the steep slopes over on the other side of the Moselle.HistorieIn 1275, Briedern had its first documentary mention. Saint Servatius’s Church (Servatiuskirche), built at this same time, was along with Saint Servatius’s Spring a pilgrimage destination; from the years 1466, 1493 and 1499 come accounts of the granting of indulgences to pilgrims. In 1595, Briedern was attacked by Anton Langhaar (“Anthony Longhair”), who wrought his evil deeds from his home base in Kastellaun in the Hunsrück. The Briederners, though, managed to put up a good fight against him. Beginning in 1794, Briedern lay under French rule. In 1814 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. Parts of the village were destroyed by shelling in 1945. Since 1946, Briedern has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
