The community of about 400 inhabitants is located in the beautiful Violental in the middle of the Verbandsgemeinde.
The place with a history of more than 1230 years can impress by its southeast slope with the Ammelbach with much green and rare plant variety and quite Mediterranean climate. Centrally located, Ottersheim offers good transport links to the Rhine/Main, Mainz and Kaiserslautern.
With the seat of the Catholic parish church St. Amadeus for four parishes - in the vernacular also called "Dom vom Violental", the parish possesses one of the most beautiful neo-Gothic churches in the Northern Palatinate. A baptismal font over 500 years old bears witness to a bishop's murder in the 11th century.
In the newly created building area "An der Griesmühle" there are currently still six fully developed building plots available, but there are already reservation inquiries. Furthermore, we are currently planning further building plots in the "Kirchenstraße". (Information under 06351-4909 47 or 06355-2854).
