Rüsselsheim: From Fort to Industrial Town

24 November 2017 | 16.15 h

Rüsselsheim evolved from a Frankish village into a booming industrial town. Lying next to one of the most important Hessian military forts of the early modern period, it became one of the biggest European automobile manufacturers with its Opel-Werk. We want to learn about this process in the “Stadt- und Industrie-Museum Rüsselsheim”, which was distinguished with the European Museum of the Year Award. Located in the former fort, we will afterwards explore the complex in a tour lighted by torches. Finally we will have a nice get together in Rüsselsheimer Bräu, a place of modern brewing arts. The tours are in English and take about two and a half hours.
