From the Neolithic to the beginning of the 1st millennium
The first traces of settlement in the Alzey area can be found as early as the Neolithic . Alzey was founded as Altiaia in the Roman province of Germania Superior in the hinterland of Mogontiacum ( Mainz ) and corresponded in size to a vicus . Alzey is first mentioned on a Roman nymph stone as Vicani Altiaienses (= civil population of Altiaia) 223. The name Altiaia may refer to a Celtic settlement that existed before the Romans from 400 BC. BC, but the exact origin cannot be determined.
A fort called Alteium was built around 370 on the ruins of the Roman vicus that was destroyed around 350 . which is documented in the Codex Theodosianus in connection with a visit by Emperor Valentinian I. 370. In 406/407 the Burgundians crossed the Rhine together with the Vandals and settled as Roman allies in Mainz, Alzey and Worms. The area was contractually guaranteed to them. In 436 the Burgundy Empire was destroyed by the Western Roman army master Aëtius and Hunnic auxiliaries. These events are processed in the Nibelungenlied and form the origin of the legendary figure Volker von Alzey , the minstrel in the Nibelungenlied. After 450 Alzey fell to the Alemanni and Franks by taking the land . After the death of Clovis I in 511, the Franconian Empire split into individual kingdoms and Alzey became part of Austrasia with the capital Metz . After the unification of the Franconian kingdoms in the middle of the 8th century, Alzey fell to Eastern Franconia as the forerunner of the German Empire in 843 with the Treaty of Verdun . In 897 Alzey was first mentioned as an imperial fief.
In 1156 Alzey belonged to the Electoral Palatinate and Konrad von Staufen received the dignity of Palatinate in the imperial castle, which was completed in 1118 . In 1277 Alzey received city rights from Rudolf von Habsburg . In 1298 the troops of Albrecht of Austria camped in front of Alzey before his victory against Adolf von Nassau in the battle of Göllheim .
From the early modern period to the beginning of the 20th century
In 1529 Ludwig V of the Palatinate had 350 Anabaptists executed in Alzey under the direction of Burgrave Dietrich von Schönenburg without a verdict , the men were beheaded and the women drowned in the Roßschwemme ( martyrs of the Anabaptist movement ).
In 1620 Count Spinola went on the side of the Catholic Emperor in the Thirty Years' War against the Protestant Electoral Palatinate and also conquered Alzey. In 1689, during the Palatinate War of Succession , the town and castle were burned down by French troops following a scorched earth policy, when areas previously conquered had to be cleared again by the armies of Louis XIV .
In 1798 the areas west of the Rhine , including those that had been in the Electoral Palatinate until then, were annexed to France . Alzey belonged to the Donnersberg (du Mont-Tonnerre) department until 1814 .
In 1799, the oldest known volunteer fire brigade in Germany was mentioned in writing in Alzey .
In 1816 Alzey was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Hesse . In 1909 the Rebschule (today: State Institute for Vine Breeding) was founded, the first director is Georg Scheu , after whom the Scheurebe grape variety is named. After the First World War, the city, like Rheinhessen and the Palatinate, was occupied for twelve years.
time of the nationalsocialism
In 1933 liberal and social democratic persons were arrested, some of whom were taken to the Osthofen concentration camp . 1938 in the Kristallnacht , the synagogue of Alzey destroyed and burned the interior front of the building. The ruin was demolished in the 1950s. A saved Torah is now in the museum. The Nazi era meant the end of the old Jewish community.
On January 8, 1945, during the Second World War, the city narrowly escaped destruction. 36 bomber of the type Boeing B-17 to attack a railway bridge in Alzey, but threw in bad weather because of a calculation error their bombs on the Wartberg. This gave rise to the legend of the Wartberg Tower as "Alzey's savior". The only thing that is certain is that the tower was destroyed and the city was largely spared from bombing raids. A total of 42 buildings were destroyed and more than 180 damaged in World War II. Including - as early as October 19, 1944 - the station building .
Since 1946 Alzey is no longer Hessian, but a district town in the Alzey district in the newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
Since the amalgamation of the districts of Alzey and Worms in 1969, Alzey has been the district town of the new district of Alzey-Worms and the seat of the Alzey-Land association , to which it does not belong as a non-association city. In 1972 the towns of Weinheim , Heimersheim and Dautenheim were incorporated into the city. The village of Schafhausen has been part of Alzey since the Middle Ages.
On April 22, 1972, the previously independent communities of Dautenheim, Weinheim and Heimersheim were incorporated into Alzey.

The city's Jewish community is dated to the 14th century. In 1349, in the course of the plague, the Black Death , the city Jews were murdered for defamation of Jewish blood. After a few years the community renewed itself and in a document from 1377 a Jew named Yitzchak von Alzey is named, who sued the city of Worms for debts it had with him. In 1389 a "Judengasse" is mentioned for the first time and a kind of ghetto with a gate that is locked at night is described. Thereafter, Jews were only found in the city again in the course of the 17th century and the first synagogue in 1791.
Several documents from around 1670 show disputes between Joseph Simon Jessel, a Jew living in Alzey, and the city butchers over Alzey's desire to open a shop. Another legal dispute between him and a neighbor who had sold his house to Jessel but refused to leave is indicated by further documents. The judgment contained therein rebukes both sides with the fact that it “is unthinkable that a Jew beat a Christian”, and the neighbors, that he is not ready to evacuate the house. Nonetheless, the Count of the Palatinate protected Jews, whose high taxes were an important element of his income. In 1789 there were 21 Jewish households in the city. During the 18th century, most of the urban Jews were, if not wealthy, well-off.
In 1710 a Jew named Simcha Deidesheimer founded a large factory that produced matzo that existed until 1925 and exported its products to France and Italy. In addition, two brothers named Levy opened a porcelain factory in the city in 1770. The parish had a cemetery and Alzey was the hometown of the well-known Belmont family.
In 1844 the Jewish-born Shimon Belmont (the ancestor of the American politicians August Belmont and August Belmont JR) was elected to become the first president of the 'Narhalle', a carnival club intended for the city's upper classes. He donated some money to the cemetery and other city community facilities.
Eight of the Jews living in Alzey died as soldiers in the First World War. According to the municipality, 76 Jews were expelled and killed in Europe-wide concentration camps during the Nazi era. In 1954 a Jewish citizen returned.

Culture and sights
Alzey has a well-preserved old town with many half-timbered houses, restaurants, cafes and shops, surrounded by ruins of the medieval city wall. The center of the city is the Rossmarkt with the bronze horse by the artist Gernot Rumpf . A sculpture of Undine by Karlheinz Oswald is on the fish market in front of the old town hall.
The Evangelical Parish Church, formerly the Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas , stands on the long side of the Obermarkt. It suffered significant destruction in the Palatinate War of Succession in 1689 and in World War II. In the nave of this three-aisled Gothic hall church there are grave slabs that come from the Cistercian convent Weidas (near Dautenheim), which fell in the 16th century. An entombment group from around 1430 is one of the earliest monumental representations of this kind. It is assumed that Nikolaus Eseler the Elder , who comes from Alzey, played a leading role in the construction.
At the end of the 1970s, the alternative seat of the Rhineland-Palatinate state government was created under the gymnasium of the state advanced high school .
Theaters and museums
The Gerry Jansen Theater only plays self-written comedies, continuously / also on weekdays, with its own professional actor ensemble. According to its own statement, it is the only theater of its kind that is not located in a big city, does not receive any subsidies or funding - and is still one of the cheapest. It describes itself as "Germany's craziest professional stage".
The Alzey City Museum, which was founded in 1906, is located in the building of the old city hospital, at the crossing Hospitalstraße / pedestrian zone (Antoniterstraße 41). The focus of the collection and exhibition is the cultural and natural history of the inner Rheinhessen. The current permanent exhibition of the museum shows three floors divided into three thematic areas: urban and regional history, prehistory and early history as well as geology and paleontology .
In the " Burggrafiat " (Schlossgasse 11) there is the stone hall with stone monuments from the Roman era. The numerous large sculptures discovered by Friedrich Behn in the fort area in 1929 and 1931 form a special focus of the archaeological collection of the city museum.
The Bali Cinema has been located near the train station since 1954.
Honourings and prices
The city awards the following awards and prizes at regular intervals. The Elisabeth Langgässer Literature Prize has been awarded every three years since 1988 to German-speaking authors whose work, thanks to its linguistic expression, should be a worthy successor to Elisabeth Langgässer . The Georg-Scheu-Badge is awarded annually at the wine festival to people who have rendered outstanding services to the wine and wine culture of Rheinhessen.
The bond with wine is also shown in the “Alser Lied”, which is always sung on Friday at the opening of the wine festival. A version sung by the former mayor Walter Zuber could be found for decades in the jukebox of the traditional Alzey bar "Zur Gretel".
The Wartberg Stadium is the largest sports facility in the city. It has a type B competition track with a large grass field, a 400 m circular track, athletics segment areas (plastic) and a standing grandstand. This also includes the “Wartbergbad” leisure pool. Nearby is a riding club with boxes, paddocks and a riding hall.
In addition, Alzey has a recently built artificial turf pitch, which is mainly used by hockey and football clubs. There is also a multi-purpose court and several hard courts at the schools. There is also a plastic sports field with seven long jump lanes behind the Elisabeth-Langgässer-Gymnasium.
Vineyard cottage hike
The so-called “Wingertshaisje hike” is a hike through the Rhenish Hessian hilly landscape between Alzey and the districts of Weinheim and Heimersheim. It takes place on the first Sunday in September. The vineyard cottages along the network of paths are managed by wineries and associations between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Both cold and warm meals and drinks are then offered, including the regionally typical Rheinhessen wine.
The wine festival takes place every year from the third Friday in September and lasts until Tuesday. It is the largest event of its kind in Alzey. Fine wines from the region are presented on the wine and sparkling wine terrace. There is also a fair with rides and profit booths of all kinds. The motto of the festival in 2006 was: Rhoihessewoi, Rhoihessewoi - let our festival eeen Feste soi! ("Rheinhessenwein, Rheinhessenwein - let our festival be a celebration!")
As the center of a wine-growing region, Alzey primarily offers wine specialties and dishes that are prepared with wine, such as the baked grumberry , which is common throughout Rheinhessen . The viticulture technician Georg Scheu named a grape variety after his place of work, the pearl of Alzey .
