The village of Hontianske Nemce is situated in the picturesque valley of river Štiavnica. It is located in the District of Banská Bystrica, only about 10 km from the town of Krupina. Surrounded by variety of local mountains (Slovenské stredohorie, Krupinská planina, Štiavnické vrchy), this village spreads across some 30,8 km2 and has got only 1495 inhabitants.
Good geographical location of this village has been renowned since the Primeval Age. Numerous archaeological findings including bowls, jars, hair accessories and various tools were found in the area and they date from the early Bronze Age. Mr. Andrej Kmeť, the local archaeologist, has found several tombs which are still the matter of research and attract many young historians and archaeologist. The earliest written reference of Hontianske Nemce dates from 1246 when the village was known as "NYMPTY". The village has always had an important transport position and was a crucial local travel point in the past.
