Geography

The municipality consists of the local villages of Enkenbach and Alsenborn. Before officially combining on 7 June 1969, the two villages worked very closely throughout their history to include a common coat of arms until 1795, a common mayor until 1825 and a common forest area until 1832.

Neighbouring municipalities are - in a clockwise direction - Neuhemsbach, Sippersfeld, Kerzenheim, Ramsen (Pfalz), Wattenheim, Fischbach (Kaiserslautern district), Kaiserslautern and Mehlingen.

History

Findings from the young stone age and mounds from the Iron Age indicate that the area was already populated in early-historical time.

Expansion

With favorable traffic levels and the connection to the railway in the year 1871, as well as the establishment of industry in the Kaiserslautern area, led to the total population of the municipality increasing despite strong emigration out of present-day Germany. Due to this population increase, Enkenbach-Alsenborn evolved from a farming community to the municipality it is today.
