On 9 August 2010, Niemeyer moved on loan to Hertha BSC, who were relegated to the second division the season before. On 4 October during the live televised league game against Alemannia Aachen, he attempted to give the first professional female referee, Bibiana Steinhaus, a pat on the shoulder, but accidentally brushed her left breast instead. Fortunately for him, she saw the funny side and took no disciplinary action.

On 3 August 2015, Niemeyer signed for recently promoted SV Darmstadt 98 in the Bundesliga on a three-year deal.
