Tips

  • Thomas P.

    The Rumpenheimer Schloss is a three-winged palace complex on the banks of the Main in Offenbach. It is the landmark of the eponymous Offenbach district Rumpenheim. The complex is adjoined by the extensive Rumpenheimer Schlosspark.

    During the Second World War, the central structure of the castle was damaged by bombs in 1943, the attic burned out.

    In 1973, there was an architectural competition, whose goal was the demolition of the ruins and the construction of a new high-rise row at this point on the Main. Fortunately, this was prevented by pressure from a citizens' initiative.

    Only since 2002 the castle presents itself again in its historical outward appearance.

    The Rumpenheim Castle goes back to a manor house, which Johann Georg Seifert von Edelsheim had built in 1678. Under Prince Karl von Hessen-Kassel, the ensemble was extended in the years 1787-1788 to a three-winged complex and also the park newly created. Until the middle of the 19th century, the Rumpheimer Schloss served as one of the residences of the house Hesse-Kassel, then increasingly rare, 1902 finally it was abandoned as a seat.
    After the First World War, the castle reached the assets of the Kurhessische Hausstiftung, but remained largely unused. During World War II, the central structure of the castle was damaged by bombs in 1943 and partially burned out.
    After 1945, refugees were initially housed in the castle, but from the 1950s, the building was largely unused and decayed. The ruin was to be demolished in the 1970s, which prevented a citizens' initiative. Only since 2002 the castle presents itself again in a historical outward appearance. Inside there are now condominiums.

    At the entrance to the castle park, there is a freely accessible mobile toilet house, with a separate urinal, with toilet paper, sink (running water via foot pump), soap dispenser and paper towels. An ideal stop when the tour is "pushing". ;-)
