Neuwied is a town in the north of the German state Rhineland-Palatinate, capital of the district of Neuwied. Neuwied lies on the right bank of the Rhine, 12 kilometers northwest of Koblenz, on the railway from Frankfurt am Main to Cologne. The town is aligned in 13 suburbs. Since the inner city of Neuwied is situated upon a former bed of the river Rhine, it is highly endangered by high-water. Moreover it is one of very few towns in the region protected by huge walls against the high waters, of course to the dislike of neighboring communities downstream.
Originally there were only a few thousand people living in Neuwied with the number not growing significantly because of numerous wars and famine. With the beginning of the industrialization in the 19th century the number of inhabitants increased from 5,600 in 1831 to 18,000 in 1905.
Neuwied is also known as the town of best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
