Schriesheim Old Town

Schriesheim Old Town


Wine town with medieval center

First mentioned in a document in 764, the town of Schriesheim was taken over in the 13th century by the Strahlenberger noble family, who built the Strahlenburg, a symbol of power high above the town. The Strahlenberger Hof, which can still be found in the town today and was once a manorial town courtyard in the High Middle Ages, can also be traced back to the former lords of the town. One of the most popular events, the wine festival Mathaismarkt, which takes place every year at the beginning of March in the old town of Schriesheim, was first celebrated in 1579. The historic town center enchants with its picturesque half-timbered houses and narrow streets, where you can find many rustic inns and wine taverns to stay.
