Daubach is an Ortsgemeinde – a community belonging to a Verbandsgemeinde – in the Westerwaldkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Montabaur, a kind of collective municipality.

Geography[edit]

Location[edit]

The community lies west of Bundesautobahn 3, five kilometres from Montabaur, to the lee of the Stelzenbach Forest, above the Gelbach Valley and only seven kilometres from the Lahn Valley with its episcopal town, Limburg an der Lahn.

History[edit]

In 1343, Daubach had its first documentary mention. Daubach is nowadays a residential community without any established industry. The grocer’s shop closed in 2000. The building of the community’s own chapel in the 1990s may be described as a highlight.
