    The stain wall is the late medieval Ortsbefestigung of Dalsheim, today a district of Flörsheim-Dalsheim. It is the only almost completely preserved medieval town fortification of Rheinhessen.
    The wall is about 1.1 km long and consists of 80 cm thick limestone quarry. A battlement was over the entire course of the wall, from which one can visit a part. In addition, it was protected by seven towers, all of which are preserved. Source: wiki

    In 1689 Flörsheim-Dalsheim was burnt down in the "Succession War". There are only 17 families remaining in the village. Therefore, I disagree with the statement "... only almost completely preserved medieval town fortification of Rheinhessen ...". As threats from the surrounding area continued to exist in the 18th century, the fortifications were removed. The stain wall reflects this character much more, even if it may be on medieval foundations. In the early 19th century, the stain wall lost its function as a protective wall and was increasingly integrated into the village extension.

    The highlight of the place. Every few years there is also the medieval stain wall festival.
