Travel Insider Tips for Lampertheim

Lampertheim Overview

Lampertheim is a town in the Bergstraße district in Hesse, Germany. Lampertheim lies in the southwest corner of Hesse in the Rhine rift at the Biedensand Conservation Area (an old arm of the Rhine) and borders on Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate. The town is broadly, but visibly surrounded by the Odenwald and the Palatinate Forest.

Things to See in Lampetheim

Stadtmuseum Lampertheim is the town museum. It is found in an old house and there are guided tours.

At the Musikschule Lampertheim is a children’s choir led by Sabine Nicolai. One can also learn to play various instruments at the music school, such as violin, piano, flute, trumpet, and others. There is also singing instruction there, either singly or in groups of 3 or 4 pupils.

Worth mentioning is the Schloss Rennhof built by Baron Rothschild in 1853 and the old schoolhouse built in 1906 and 1907, both in Hüttenfeld. In the Schloss Rennhof is found the Litauisches Gymnasium Hüttenfeld (“Lithuanian Gymnasium”), originally established as a school for Lithuanian émigrés’ children after their homeland was overrun by the Soviet Union in the Second World War. It is the only recognized Lithuanian school in Western Europe.

The many transmission masts of the shortwave broadcaster Radio Free Europe Lampertheim, one of the biggest shortwave transmission facilities in Germany, are up to 125 m tall. They are guyed steel-lattice masts, set in pairs in a row, bearing dipole antennae. Some of these transmission masts are linked to each other by crossbeams furnished with catwalks.

The Lampertheimer Spargellauf (“Asparagus Walk”) is a public walking event that is traditionally held a week before the Lampertheim Asparagus Festival (Lampertheimer Spargelfest). It is staged by the Lampertheim Gymnastic Club. Every finisher gets a Spargellauf T-shirt, which comes in a different colour every year.

Near Lampertheim, the American foreign broadcasting service Radio Free Europe runs a shortwave transmission facility, and US troops run a United States Army and USAF base, Coleman Barracks, in neighbouring Mannheim-Sandhofen. Furthermore, American soldiers also train at a shooting range in the Lampertheim woods.

More about the History of Lampertheim

The earliest forms of the town’s name handed down from 832 were Langobardonheim or Langbardheim, which led to the conclusion that the town was founded by the Lombards (Langobarden in German). There is however today no further doubt that Lampertheim arose at the time of Frankish settlement and that the name is to be taken as meaning “Lantberths’ Home”, the name “Lantberth” – also “Lampert” or “Lambert” – meaning “Land-brightening ones”. In 1716, the town was granted market rights, and on 4 August 1951 town rights.
