Roman past

The community Nidderanven has a Roman past. In addition to the remains of the " gill" other archaeological finds have been made ​​in this area, which prove this.

In 1938, came a group of hikers between the hamlets Senningen and Senningerberg the remains of a lime kiln. Already at that time it was assumed that this lime kiln could date from the Roman period. In 1999 this assumption was confirmed after review by the University of Cologne. Using a piece of wood that was found next to the lime kiln, the researchers were able to specify more precisely, at which time the furnace had been built. Agreement was reached on the period between 65 and 75 AD The Roman origin of the furnace, the fact that it is a lime kiln. Lime was introduced in this region by the Romans as a building material. For buildings, it was used as a binder. Why Nidderanven or the former Andethanna was chosen as the site to burn lime, to this day, especially in view of the fact that there is no limestone in this area is not entirely clear. Is likely, however, that this place was mainly due to its excellent transport links, selected: the Roman road between Reims and Trier ran through Andethanna. In addition, Trier was a good paragraph mark for the degraded lime.


In the summer of 1908 for the first time the idea was born in Hostert to set up a musical union. After initial doubts about the feasibility of such a project, it came on August 1, 1908 a provisional establishment of the Hosterter Music ( Hueschterter Musek ). Two months later, after 25 musicians came together, then was definitely the union, the " Fanfare reunie de Hostert " was called. Pierre Pütz was the first conductor. At the same time also an associated committee was elected, in which Pierre Theisen emerged as president. The cost for the first 24 instruments amounted to 1855 Luxembourg francs, all of which were funded by donations from the residents Hosterts. From the beginning, played the " Fanfare reunie de Hostert " on Jubiliäumsfeiern, weddings, wine festivals, as well as spiritual events in the parish church of Hostert. In 2008, the 100th anniversary of which was " Fanfare reunie de Hostert " celebrated. The number of musicians, 50 ( 2008) has doubled compared to the beginning, 24 ( 1908).
