All about Hattersheim

At the heart of the lively Rhine-Main region, Hattersheim is located in the city triangle of Mainz, Frankfurt and Wiesbaden and in the direct vicinity of the Taunus and Rheingau regions. Hattersheim’s eventful history characterises the townscape just as much as the varied leisure opportunities: swimming in the loveliest open-air swimming pool in the region, regular live music events on Sunday morning at the historic Alter Posthof, sailing across the Main on the ferry. Follow the tracks of history with a walk along the Keltenkreisel, the Altmünstermühle and the Urbansmühle.

Frankfurt Airport is around ten minutes away by car.

Culture and history

Guests from near and far visit us for transregional events. At the end of May every year, the ‘Lufthansa Classic Car Days’ event, one of the biggest vintage car meets in Germany, attracts thousands of visitors. In the summer months, the Sunday matinee ‘Die Post geht ab...!’ attracts lots of guests to the historic inner courtyard of the Alter Posthof. On the third Sunday of Advent, Hattersheim old town is transformed into the most atmospheric Christmas market in the district, and indeed the largest one, with around 100 stalls.
