In the footsteps of the past
Experience Jewish heritage
Rheinhessen stands above all for good wine and breathtaking scenery, that the region has an old Jewish history, is the few people aware. From the centuries-old Jewish cemeteries to numerous synagogues and the Jewish Museum in Worms, the history of the Jews in Rheinhessen can be reconstructed. Special highlights are, for example, the Jewish cemetery "Heiliger Sand" in Worms, which is the oldest preserved Jewish cemetery in Europe, or the New Synagogue, which can be found in Mainz. Mainz is also one of the oldest and most traditional Jewish communities in Europe.
