More about the History of Limburgerhof
In 1035 the King of the Saliers Konrad II gave the land around Schifferstadt to the Limburg Abbey. The land nowadays belonging to Limburgerhof was part of it. The oldest part of Limburgerhof that still exists is Rehhütte which was first mentioned in 1590. The mill on the Rehbach stream had already been mentioned in 1241.
In 1664 Elector Karl Ludwig settled two Mennonite families from Switzerland in Kohlhof, which is still part of Limburgerhof. From their land six farms developed. The Mennonite community still exists. In 1826 Graf Waldner von Freundstein bought the estate on the crossroads between Mannheimer Weg and the Mainz (Mainz vacation rentals | Mainz travel guide) to Speyer (Speyer vacation rentals | Speyer travel guide) road that Francois Biechy established in 1807. Two of these buildings that he constructed are still here: the small castle in classicist style and the three-storey tower in the park.
The main increase in Limburgerhof’s population came in the time after the second world war. Refugees from the east and the growing interest among city dwellers in finding living areas outside the congested city areas necessitated new building areas. The infrastructure including schools, sewage system, green areas, library and sports areas were quickly extended.
In 1983 the officially opened town centre building with town hall, room for cultural events, theatre, doctors’ surgeries, shops and apartments became the focal point of the town. Since 1975 the town has been twinned with the French town of Chenove in Burgundy. The living areas around the industrial centres in the Rhein-Neckar triangle are more and more important. Limburgerhof is ideal because of its excellent transport links and high living standard and many leisure opportunities. Particularly important in the town is the promotion of clubs, looking after senior citizens and also children and youthwork. In 1993 Limburgerhof was one of the winners in the competition for “Child friendly towns”.
