|Location of the city of Kronberg im Taunus in the Hochtaunus district|
The city of Kronberg im Taunus (until October 17, 1933 was written as Cronberg ) is a state-approved climatic health resort in the Hochtaunus district in the state of Hesse and part of the Frankfurt urban region , the largest agglomeration in the Rhine-Main area . It takes its name from Kronberg Castle , the seat of the Knights of Kronberg from 1220 to 1704 .
The Vordertaunus , particularly Kronberg and the neighboring town of Königstein im Taunus , are known for their expensive residential areas with a number of villas. Kronberg is the third richest municipality in Germany. In addition, the city of Kronberg im Taunus had a purchasing power index of 182.1 percent of the national average in 2017, which is well above the national average and is therefore a top national figure.
Kronberg lies at the foot of the Taunus , surrounded by forests in the north, west and east. In addition to a well-preserved closed Old Town with the castle Kronberg and the Free tower ( keep , first mentioned in 1424), the oldest building in the city from the 13th to 16th centuries, the "Hellhof" (one built by the Kronberg knights Adelshof today partially converted to a gallery), the "Recepturhof" ( Kurmainzer administration building), the Protestant Church of St. Johann from 1440, the " Streitkirche " from 1758 are still Schloss Friedrichshof (1889-1893, since 1954 "Schlosshotel Kronberg"), the Viktoriapark , the sweet chestnut forest , the orchards and the Kronthal mineral springs in the Kronthal spring park are worth mentioning.
Kronberg has been a state-recognized climatic health resort since June 28, 1966 .
Various finds testify to the prehistoric settlement of the area around Kronberg. On the Altkönig ( ring walls from the early La Tène period around 400 BC. During the Carolingian period, there was already a fortification on the Hünerberg , as evidenced by the ring wall there .) there are
On August 24th, 782 first documentary mention of the Heichsteter marca (Nieder- and Oberhöchstadt) in the Lorsch Codex .
With the construction of Kronberg Castle in the Taunus around 1220, according to Gerd Strickhausen already in the middle of the 12th century, the "Knights of Askenburne" ( Eschborn ), who owned a moth there , shared . The "crown trunk" moved to Kronberg and named itself, while the "wing trunk" (died out on October 8, 1617 with Johann Eberhard) did not come to Kronberg until around 1250. The name "von Eschborn" no longer appears in the documents.
Hartmut and Walther von Cronberg received the first limited city rights for the small settlement on the hillside on April 25, 1330 by Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria . On March 31, 1367, Emperor Karl IV. Ulrich the Red von Cronberg granted market rights and blood jurisdiction : “That they were in the castle of Kronenberg, which was feeble-minded by the rich, and seven lay judges, who over debt, pensions, validity, benefits and inclines May judge reproach, outrage, injustice and everything that concerns body and property, then be allowed to have gallows, sticks and neck judgment there, also gives all who are or will be citizens of Kronenberg, Christians and Jews, the right of Frankfurt, as well as that Places a weekly market according to Frankfurt law on every Wednesday. "
Together with the Hattsteiners and Reifenbergers , the Kronberg knights declared the so-called Kronberg feud to the city of Frankfurt in 1389 . When the Frankfurters moved to Kronberg Castle with a large contingent on May 13th, troops from Hanau and the Electorate of the Palatinate rushed to the aid of the besieged, expelled the Frankfurters in the "Battle of Eschborn" on May 14th and took over 600 prisoners, including some aristocratic councilors Forced recruited members of the guilds (butchers, locksmiths, shoemakers and all bakers). The Limburg Chronicle noted: “So the little bunch knocked down the big bunch. That was not a miracle, for the large group fled and the small group quarreled. O Frankfurt! Frankfurt! Remember this battle! "
Only the unbelievably high ransom payment of 73,000 gold gulden negotiated on August 22, 1389, which Frankfurt had to suffer from for about 120 years, ended the dispute with Frankfurt and established the construction of the " Frankfurter Landwehr ". But peace was quickly concluded (1391) and an alliance with the Cronbergers was sought. In 1394 the Frankfurt council appointed Hartmuth von Cronberg as bailiff of Bonames for two years, and in 1395 Johann von Cronberg concluded a detailed federal treaty with Frankfurt, which obliged the Kronbergers to protect the citizens of Frankfurt and their fairs. In the year 1398 finally the "shooting fellows at Cronenberg ... the shooting fellows at Franckenfurd invited our good friends" to a "shooting umb eyn Cleynod" . This letter is considered to be the oldest surviving rifle charge letter in Germany. In 1390 the second city wall was built, today's Neustadt.
Since Hartmut XII had previously assisted Franz von Sickingen (his second uncle) in his attacks on Trier and Worms, the Archbishop of Trier Richard von Greiffenklau zu Vollrads , Ludwig von der Pfalz and Landgrave Philipp von Hessen besieged the city and castle of Kronberg in 1522 forced unconditional surrender. Hartmut fled. Since Kronberg was an imperial fiefdom, Philip had to return the castle and town to Hartmut in 1541, granting the Lutheran church property rights. These protective rights were confirmed by the Landgraviate of Hessen-Darmstadt in the 17th and 18th centuries, so the later attempts at Mainz to counter-Reformation from 1626 to 1649 and the denominationalization of the church, a simultaneousization, between 1737 and 1768 were unsuccessful.
"The latter of the ancient von Cronberg family" is childless in 1704 "... in God blessedly slept Mr. Johann Niclas von und zu Cronberg, Mr. zu Yben, Rodenberg, Hollenfels and Altenbamberg" so his funerary inscription. The descendant of the crown tribe , who was raised to the rank of count, died at Hohlenfels Castle , today the municipality of Hahnstätten , above the Aartal . Kronberg and the communities of Schönberg, Niederhöchstadt and Eschborn then fell to the Electorate of Mainz as an imperial fief .
Kurmainz continued the Kronberg rule as the Kronberg office . During the Kurmainzer time, the majority of the Protestant citizens took legal action against Mainz because of religious "tribulations". The disputes, also known as Kronberg Church Dispute, escalated on the occasion of the construction of the building known today as the “ Streitkirche ”, which was planned as a Catholic church in 1758 right next to the Protestant Church of St. Johann. This led to violent protests by the evangelical citizens who reached the Perpetual Reichstag in Regensburg and which were accepted there after a few years. The building was never consecrated, and the bell stalls were torn down again. The building has been used for civil purposes since 1768 (pharmacy, inn, today also as the museum of the Kronberg painters' colony ).
In the Peace of Lunéville in 1801, the Electorate of Mainz lost its secular territories, including the Kronberg Imperial Fief, which was seized by the Prince of Nassau-Usingen in 1802 and formally awarded to him in 1803. By order of Nassau, large parts of the city wall, towers except for the oak gate and gates were demolished in 1813. In the German War of 1866 , the Duke of Nassau took the side of Austria against the will of the population and thereby lost his land to Prussia .
In 1862 the forerunner of Volksbank Kronberg, the advance payment association for Cronberg & the surrounding area, was founded.
The Nassau offices of Königstein , Usingen and Homburg were merged by Prussia in 1867 to form the Obertaunuskreis, which was allocated to the Wiesbaden administrative district in the new province of Hessen-Nassau in 1868 .
In the middle of the 19th century wealthy industrialists, merchants and bankers discovered the idyllic and climatically favorable location of the Taunus town in the immediate vicinity of Frankfurt and built villas and summer residences in Kronberg and Schönberg. Artists, including Anton Burger and Jakob Fürchtegott Dielmann , came to Kronberg from around 1850 and founded the Kronberg painters' colony , which existed until after the Second World War . Some works by the Kronberg painters are exhibited in the museum in the Streitkirche.
The small town, which was previously characterized by small farmers and craftsmen, gained importance in its "Prussian era" through the construction (opening on November 1, 1874) of the Rödelheim-Kronberg railway connection and the widow's residence Schloss Friedrichshof (1889-1894) of Empress Friedrich , mother emperor Wilhelm the Second . Due to the numerous visits by the European nobility to Friedrichshof Palace, an “imperial” pavilion was built on the station grounds, which was demolished around 1930 and gave way to a toilet.
1892 in Kronthal of Siemens a mobile & Halske Dampflokomobile erected with attached dynamo to supply the city with electricity Kronberg. After a few years, the team was moved to Bad Soden on the site of today's MKW and served there as a reserve.
From 1918 to 1928 Kronberg belonged to the Königstein district , an administrative unit established during the French occupation, which was dissolved again in 1928 and incorporated into the Obertaunus district.
On October 17, 1933, the Reich Minister of the Interior ordered the name to be changed from Cronberg to Kronberg ; the National Socialists considered the "C" to be "un-German". The last city council met on December 23, 1933, the magistrate and city council were abolished, the mayor and NSDAP local group leader appointed by the district administrator Wilhelm Schaub, to whom some “councilors” were assigned , became the sole representative of the city .
In the Villa Mumm, today the seat of Fidelity Investments , the NSDAP established a Gau training castle in 1936 and a reserve hospital from 1940 . On the night of November 18th to 19th, 1943, the castle chapel was badly damaged by a fire bomb, and only half of the roof structure was later restored. On March 29, 1945 Kronberg was occupied by troops of the 3rd US Army without a fight. Kronberg and its current districts lost around 400 men in World War II, six Kronbergers of Jewish descent died in prison or in a concentration camp .
After the Second World War , Kronberg belonged to the Greater Hesse formed by the American occupation forces from Kurhessen, the parts of Nassau that belonged to the US occupation zone and the parts of the state of Hesse on the right bank of the Rhine , today's state of Hesse .
1946 was by Pope Pius XII. the papal mission for refugees in Germany relocated to Kronberg. The apostolic visitor and head of the facility was the German-born Bishop of Fargo in North Dakota, Aloysius Muench . His pastoral work included looking after the refugees and displaced persons from Eastern Europe. Until the summer of 1949 he organized the transport of around 950 freight wagons with papal relief supplies to Germany from Kronberg. He also found support from the US government; Before he started working in Kronberg, he received a certificate of appointment from the US Secretary of Defense Robert P. Patterson as liaison officer for religious affairs with the US military government in Germany . Through his contacts in the USA, Muench conveyed a considerable flow of donations to destroyed Germany. After the founding of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Kronberg Apostolic Mission was dissolved in 1951. Muench was previously on October 28, 1950 by Johannes XXIII. appointed archbishop and first apostolic nuncio in the Federal Republic of Germany; he took office on March 9, 1951 in Bad Godesberg .
Under the code name Operation Artichoke , the CIA "questioned" suspected agents using brainwashing , drugs , hypnosis and torture in the now listed Villa Schuster (later Haus Waldhof) in the early 1950s . Kronberg became known nationwide in 2010, when the then combing manager had to answer to court for embezzling a total of 280,000 euros. In 2011 he was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.
On the occasion of the regional reform in Hesse , the state government approved the merger of the city of Kronberg (Taunus) and the municipalities of Oberhöchstadt / Ts with effect from April 1, 1972 . and Schönberg (Taunus) in the Obertaunuskreis to form a city with the name Kronberg / Taunus . For the districts of Kronberg, Schönberg and Oberhöchstadt, local districts with local advisory councils and heads were established by the main statute . The boundaries of the local districts follow the previous district boundaries.
On January 1, 1977, the name of the city was officially changed to Kronberg im Taunus .
In the past, a lot of fruit was grown in the region, not least due to the activities of the pastor and pomologist Johann Ludwig Christ, who worked in Kronberg from 1786 to 1813 . A cooperative fruit processing company was created with a market hall on Schanzenfeld, which no longer exists today. Throughout the country, for example, strawberries were marketed under the name "Kronberger Erdbeeren" until the 1950s. The apple cultivation on orchards was very important, cider was pressed. Not to be forgotten are the Kronberg sweet chestnuts , also known as “Keste”, which Goethe had sent to Weimar.

For this purpose, a city bus network consisting of three lines has existed in Kronberg since 2001 . Like the S-Bahn, it is integrated into the Rhein-Main transport network and transports around 380,000 people per year. The offer is supplemented by a shared call taxi , which covers some geographical gaps in the city bus and serves to extend the operating hours. In addition, regional bus routes connect Kronberg with the neighboring cities and the nearby Frankfurt Northwest Center .
Since the beginning of 2013, the Frankfurt traffic department has been examining a possible extension of the U-Bahn line 6 to Eschborn, which currently ends at Heerstraße in Frankfurt-Praunheim . The head of the Frankfurt traffic department has commissioned a corresponding specific investigation of the project. A stop in the Helfmann-Park industrial park is possible. According to the mayor of Eschborn, this would “further enhance the Eschborn location”. There is not yet an exact schedule for the project. In the foreseeable future there will be a meeting with representatives from Eschborn, Frankfurt and Oberursel on the subject of the subway. The Greens in the Hochtaunuskreis have recently spoken out in favor of expanding the U6 beyond Eschborn with stops in Steinbach and Kronberg.
