Ginsheim-Gustavsburg

Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Hesse  /  Ginsheim-Gustavsburg
The double community of Ginsheim-Gustavsburg in the northwest of Groß-Gerau district in Hesse has about 16,000 inhabitants.GeographyLocationGinsheim-Gustavsburg lies south of the Main and north of the Rhine in the so-called Mainspitze triangle, a narrow piece of land between the Main and Rhine where the former empties into the latter. Across the Rhine from the community lies Mainz. Wiesbaden is also nearby.Neighbouring communitiesGinsheim-Gustavsburg borders in the north on the district-free city of Wiesbaden and the town of Hochheim (Main-Taunus-Kreis), in the east on the community of Bischofsheim and the town of Rüsselsheim, in the south on the community of Trebur, and in the west on the community of Bodenheim (Mainz-Bingen) and the district-free city of Mainz.Constituent communitiesAs its name suggests, Ginsheim-Gustavsburg consists of two centres, named Ginsheim and Gustavsburg.HistoryGinsheimThe placename is believed to go back to the Frankish Gimmo family and had its first documentary mention in 1211 as "Ginnensheim" in the "Oculus Memorie" (Eberbach Monastery's goods directory). After the former Imperial village was pledged to Count Dieter von Katzenelnbogen in 1248, history yields other noble families' names such as Falkenstein, Sayen and Isenburg as the village's overlords changed. In 1600, the village ended up in the Hesse-Darmstadt Landgrave Ludwig V's hands. In the Thirty Years' War, the community was so badly battered that from 1634 to 1642, hardly anyone lived there.
