Sightseeing in Offenbach - what to see. Complete travel guide

Offenbach It’s an unusual and beautiful town situated on the bank of the River Main. This is one of the greenest towns of the country as its southern part is completely occupied by forests. First mentions of Offenbach appeared in 977; at that time it was a small region, which was considered a suburban area of Frankfurt. The magnates of Frankfurt built their mansions and villas here. Later several tanneries were built on the territory of the town. The goods produced there were so quality and unique that the information about them quickly spread far beyond the country.

Several tanneries work even nowadays in Offenbach and each year you can see them in fairs and sales that attract thousands of tourists. Despite the fact Offenbach is still a major industrial center, it keeps guests amazed with its beauty. The streets of the town are full of beautiful buildings, many of which were built three centuries ago. One can endlessly enjoy the beauty of monuments and other places of interest of Offenbach. Here you will find true examples of Renaissance style, as well as several houses in modern style. Isenburger Schloss is one of the most famous buildings of the town. The construction of the castle took place in the 16th century. Nowadays the institute is open in the palace, so here are trained future designers.
An interesting fact - not all of the amazing buildings of the town once had an important mission. Many of them are just common living houses, which were built 250 - 300 years ago to cherish the memory of notable events in the history of Offenbach. The downtown area is particularly rich in such buildings. Many buildings have been turned into showrooms and museums. Many modern restaurants and shops border with these old buildings. They will make your rest more enjoyable and pleasant. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

The Büsing Palace is located in a beautiful city park. It was built in the second half of the 18th century. Originally the luxurious palace belonged to wealthy local industrialists - Peter and John d'Orville. At the end of the 19th century, the building has gone through the first large-scale reconstruction, during which it acquired unique neo-baroque-style features. Subsequently, the magnificent palace was used as the Town Hall building. The construction was badly damaged during the Second World War, but later the palace was completely restored thanks to old drawings.
An equally interesting historic monument is the Capitol building. Originally, the spectacular neoclassical-style structure built in the early 20 century housed a synagogue. Today, the large building with a dome is one of the most recognizable city attractions. In the middle of the 20th century, a theater was opened here. Now the Capitol is a multifunctional cultural center with a capacity of up to 1,800 people. It regularly hosts theatrical performances, concerts, and many other interesting cultural events.

Walking along Offenbach's historic streets, you can see the old Bernardbau factory building. This snuff-tobacco factory was opened in 1892, like many other historic buildings in the city. The factory building was partially damaged during the Second World War. After the war, the building's damaged roof was completely restored. Today, the former industrial structure houses a city archive and a great historical museum.
The Rumpenheimer Castle built in 1788 is a remarkable 18th-century monument. Initially, there was a small private mansion on the site of the present castle, which was subsequently converted into a large castle surrounded by a vast landscaped garden. The completed building was visited by many noblemen, important official receptions and solemn events were held here in the castle. After the war, the reconstruction of the building began, which was completed only by 2002. Now the ancient castle is an important cultural center. The best time to visit it is summer when the traditional Medieval Festival is held on the castle grounds.
