Kommen lies within the temperate zone.
In 922, Kommen had its first documentary mention as Cuminu. Until 1802 it formed a unified municipality with Longkamp.
Coat of arms
The municipality’s arms might be described thus: Argent a chevron reversed gules, the ends in chief and the point at the base, surmounted on each side by a scythe blade of the field, the points to base.
The reversed (that is, upside down) chevron forms a V, which is meant to stand for the village’s patron saint, Valentine, and the scythe blades refer to the agriculture that is the villagers’ main livelihood even today.
The arms have been borne since 8 November 1962.
Culture and sightseeing
The village chapel goes back to 1730.
Economy and infrastructure
Public transport in Kommen is integrated into the Verkehrsverbund Region Trier (VRT), whose fares therefore apply. Since September 2008, Kommen has had at its disposal a “youth room”, which was built almost exclusively by the village youth and with help from a few professionals from the municipality.
