Herrnsheim Castle and Gardens
Herrnsheim Castle

Herrnsheim castle, situated in Herrnsheim suburb, goes back to a fortress built in 1460. Remodeled into a baroque castle from 1711 on, it was severely damaged in 1792. The ruins were used to build today’s empire-style castle, and in 1840 further alterations were made. Around 1790, the lord of the castle, Wolfgang Heribert von Dalberg, commissioned one of the foremost landscape gardeners of his time, Friedrich Ludwig Skell, to lay out a park around the castle. Skell made an English landscape garden of it, supplying it with meadows, outlier groves, ponds and an island. The outbuildings of the castle were built in the 18th century, the orangery, now housing a café, in the early 19th century. The castle’s interior design is particularly remarkable. Large part of it is preserved on the ground floor, including wall and ceiling paintings. Rare French wallpapers from the first half of the 19th century feature a panorama of Paris and a scene from the Bosporus (first floor). Another highlight is the library tower.

"May I ask please, who owns the Herrnsheim castle?" (posted 08/20/2014)

The Herrnsheim castle belongs to the city of Worms. The last descendant of the family of Dalberg sold the castle in 1883 to the Wormser industrial family of the Barons von Heyl, who sold it in turn to 1957-58, the city of Worms; it serves her for representative purposes.
