Nisterau's Ortsteile are Bach and Pfuhl.
About 1300, Pfuhl had its first documentary mention, with Bach's name first appearing in writing in 1416. Both were once independent communities, but were united on 1 March 1969.
The council is made up of 12 council members who were elected in a majority vote in a municipal election on 13 June 2004.
Coat of armsEdit
The tinctures and the charge of the lion in the community's arms refer to the community's former allegiance to the Duchy of Nassau and the later Prussian province of the same name. Also, the two waves symbolize the Große Nister and Kleine Nister, brooks that also form the community's natural boundaries.
