the area of the today's district Mayen Koblenz was splintered 1800 ago into numerous rule areas, from which the cure princes had the largest portions of Trier and Cologne.

During French occupation under Napoleon the area was part of the Departenments Rhin et Moselle with seat in Koblenz. To the Viennese congress 1815 came the area to Prussia and became 1816 on the again formed circles Mayen, Koblenz country, Adenau(late high Eifel circle) and St.Goar within the province Grand Duchy of Niederrhein (starting from 1822 Rhine province) distributes. 1932 were dissolved the high Eifel circle and divided between the circles Ahrweiler and Mayen. 1946 came the circle area as a component of the governmental district Koblenz to the country Rhineland-Palatinate.With the circle reform the circle Mayen municipalities delivered 1969/70 to the circles Ahrweiler and Daun; the circle Koblenz country lost municipalities to the circle-free city Koblenz and received the northern municipalities and the Moselgemeinden of the circle pc.

in Koblenz, which is capital at that time of the Prussian Rhine province, an important railway knot developed, whose basic stick put the Rheini railway company. Their first distance came 1858 on the left Rhine bank from Cologne to and became in the following year towardBeing gene resumed. Before 1902 the new main station was opened, one used the Rhine station further north at the right Moselufer.

On the right Rhine bank one could travel 1869 from Cologne over Neuwied - Koblenz Ehrenbreitstein to Niederlahnstein; from honour broad stone one went until 1899Stage over the Pfaff villages bridge after Koblenz Rheini station. The Urmitzer railway bridge, which made direct courses possible from Neuwied to Koblenz, was handed over only 1918 by the Prussian state railway to traffic.

It was it also, which removed the remaining route network:

Starting from 1879 the railway of Koblenz operated along the Mosel toward Trier. The Rhine transition from Koblenz to Niederlahnstein and thus the direct connection became simultaneous to the rechtsrheinische course Cologne - Wiesbaden as well as to the Lahn course to Limburg -Pour production.

The old circle Mayen received its first line other oh one - to Niedermendig in the year 1878; it reached 1880 Mayen east and led starting from 1895 far toward Daun - Gerolstein. In addition 1904 still the cross connection Koblenz came - Mayen eastwith the branching Polch - cathedral May field in the year 1916.

The 1884 opened distance Engers - Siershahn touched the circle area only in the station Bendorf Sayn, similarly as the Brohltal railway with their 1901 built narrow-gauge railway. On these two distances the regular restsPassenger traffic just like on the distance Koblenz - Mayen including branching after cathedral May field:

  • 1961: Polch - cathedral May field 10 km and Brohl - bath Tönisstein - Kempenich 3 km (meter pure)
  • 1983: Koblenz Lützel - Polch - Mayen east 36 km
  • 1989: Engers- Bendorf Sayn - Grenzau - Siershahn 6 km

that are 55 km distance; nevertheless 134 km are still full in enterprise.
