Out of the developed area, industrial buildings make up about 2% of the whole area while buildings and housing make up 9% and infrastructure for transportation accounts for about 4%. Out of the land that is forest-covered, 25% of the place is filled with very thick forest and about 2% is dotted with little tree clusters and orchards. Out of the land that is for agriculture, about 27% is for crops and about a quarter is for pastures. All of the water there is flowing.

The place is initially mentioned around 1350 as Onoltzwil in dem … nidern dorff. It was noted as Niderndorff around 1450. It was a section of Onoldswil, like Oberdorf. That was up to when the village was dissolved in the 1200s.
