Rüsselsheim am Main

A town shaped by mobility.

Since Adam Opel...

laid the foundations for the creation of the international Opel brand here, almost everything in the town has revolved around cars. The latest Opel, Chevrolet, Kia and Hyundai models are designed here, and an attractive environment has grown up for the many engineering companies and service providers. But those more interested in culture will also find plenty of variety in Rüsselsheim to keep them busy.



In Rüsselsheim, there are many attractions to ensure that you can enjoy an exciting day trip, spanning the full spectrum from early history to the present day. Visitors can find out how cars are made on a tour of the Opel plant, while those interested can also take a special tour to discover the town, the citadel, the prize-winning industrial museum and the late Romantic Verna-Park, an urban park in the style of an English landscape garden. Rüsselsheim is also the first town in the Rhine-Main area to have a signposted walking route for industrial culture. Audio and video guides to accompany the tour in German and English can be borrowed from the museum in the citadel. Fans of culture should visit the Kunstzentrum Opelvillen, where they will find exhibitions of contemporary and classic modern art in a stylish atmosphere. With over 100 shows - including plays, children's theatre, cabaret, musicals and concerts - every year, Theater Rüsselsheim has plenty to offer. The Jazzfabrik attracts jazz fans from all over the Rhine-Main region. Rüsselsheim regularly plays host to regional and international jazz stars.
