Niersbach has one outlying centre, the Ortsteil of Greverath.
In 1473, Niersbach had its first documentary mention as Nydersbach. Beginning in 1794, Niersbach lay under French rule. In 1814 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. Since 1947, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Today’s municipality was newly formed out of the dissolved municipalities of Niersbach and Greverath on 10 June 1979.
The council is made up of 12 council members, who were elected by proportional representation at the municipal election held on 7 June 2009, and the honorary mayor as chairman.
