Ober-Floersheim Blücher Trail
In honor of the "Marshal Forward
Starting in 1792, the Revolutionary War between the French and the Prussians raged. During a battle in Ober-Flörsheim on March 30, 1793, the Prussians were initially victorious. Where was their field marshal Colonel Blücher to be quartered? In the "Kommende" of the Teutonic Knights. This was a branch of the "Ballei" Marburg (i.e. Order Province) with an eventful history. Finally, however, in 1797 all territories on the left bank of the Rhine were annexed by France. However, in the 19th century Blücher was stylized as "Marshal Forward" and became a German national hero. Without a doubt, the single vineyard is named in his honor. On limestone and loess the winegrowers like to cultivate strong red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon.
