1,250 years Oppenheim - A unique story

Oppenheim

Halfway between Mainz and Worms, the medieval town of Oppenheim invites you on a discovery tour. In and above all under the historical old town hides lively history. Landmarks of the wine city, such as Kellerlabyrinth, and St. Catherine's Church tell of a long history.

Visible from afar, the Gothic Katharinenkirche watches over the city. The Gothic building is one of the most important on the Rhine. A little further up is the stately castle ruin Landskron. Although the city and castle were destroyed in 1689 during the Palatine War of Succession, the surviving walls of the castle ruins give an idea of how powerful it once was. Today, power struggles and intrigues still play out here - but only as a spectacle on stage, because for over 25 years, the ruins of one of the venues of the Festival Oppenheim.

The vineyards can be explored on foot or accompanied by a winegrower on a tractor-trailer team and can join a tour of the German Wine-growing Museum

Oppenheim has something astonishing to offer in its cellars: the entire Old Town has a cellar system that reaches down to five storeys in some places.

Oppenheim can look back on a long history. As early as 765 Oppenheim was first mentioned in documents and in 1225 raised to the free imperial city. Walking through the streets and winding lanes of Oppenheim you can feel the breath of history.

The well-being of the city has always been linked to wine. Even today, the Oppenheimer locations such as bag carrier, Toad Fountain and Herrenberg have a good name among wine connoisseurs around the world.
