Übereisenbach is a municipality in the district of Bitburg-Prüm, in Rhineland-Palatinate, western Germany.

Geographical location[edit]

Übereisenbach is above the Our, across from the Luxembourgish village Untereisenbach.

History[edit]

The place has been mentioned around 450 as a Frankish settlement. Until the end of the 18th century, the community Eisenbach, consisting of the three districts Untereisenbach, Obereisenbach and Übereisenbach, belonged to Luxembourg. As a result of the Congress of Vienna, Übereisenbach became part of Prussia, where Untereisenbach and Obereisenbach at the opposite shore of the Our remained Luxembourgish.

Attractions[edit]

Worth seeing is primarily the fountain on the village square.
