More about the History of Reichelsheim

The oldest parts are Beienheim (first mentioned in a document from the year 773) and Reichelsheim (817).

The town of Reichelsheim was created in 1972 during an extensive land reform. The formerly independent villages mentioned above joined administrative structures now concentrated in the largest of the villages, Reichelsheim.

The area which is now the town of Reichelsheim was probably already populated in Celtic times. During the fourth century BC the Celts were slowly displaced by germanic tribes that later had to yield to Roman rule which forced all of the Wetterau under its control.

In the 6th century Frankish rule was established. The name-ending "-heim" is of frankish origin, meaning quite literally "home of". In the case of the village of Reichelsheim, it was supposedly a frankish settler named Richholf who founded the village that was first mentioned as "Richolfsheim". During the Thirty Years' War the town was repeatedly plundered and burned to the ground. The village gained town status in the year 1665.
