Bensheim is a town in the southern Hessian district Bergstraße. It lies on the eastern edge of the Upper Rhine plain on the slopes of the western Odenwald on the mountain road. The largest city of L.K. has evolved from a village first mentioned in the 8th century. In 1945, large parts of the old town were destroyed by incendiary bombs. Today, about 40,000 inhabitants live in Bensheim and its neighborhoods. The nearest major cities are Darmstadt (about 22 km north), Heidelberg (about 35 km south), Worms (about 18 km west) and Mannheim (about 32 km southwest). The district town of Heppenheim is about 5 km south.
Through Bensheim flows from the Lautertalaus eastern direction coming Lauter, which is called from the Rinnentor Winkelbach. In the south of the city also flows from the Odenwald (Meerbachtal with Zell and Gronau) coming Meerbach. The coat of arms shows in red a knight with a golden two-handed lance ("Contus") and in golden armor on a silver horse. Beneath it in the sign foot sits a green dragon, which is pierced by the lance. The red coat of arms background refers to the coat of arms of Mainz, since the city was until 1802 in the possession of the diocese of Mainz. The horseman killing the dragon depicts Saint Georgdar, who in earlier times was the patron saint of the city of Bensheim. The old town with the market square has been the center of Bensheim since time immemorial. It is located about 100 meters west of the St. Georgskirche. Around the market square are a number of half-timbered houses with many sights ... 🚴♂️de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geschichte_der_Stadt_Bensheim

Beautiful historic half-timbered buildings in the "core city" relocated from numerous cafes and restaurants for small and large appetites. Anyone who passes by here on a long-distance tour can definitely consider making a small cultural detour.
