In the northeast, north of the Hesslerhof and west of the Erbenheimer Warte , there is also a short piece of shared border with Wiesbaden-Erbenheim . Until 1945, the border with Biebrich was the state border between the People's State of Hesse and the Prussian Province of Hesse-Nassau and runs through the Wiesbaden Ost train station and the Kalle-Albert industrial park , named after two chemical companies, Kalle and Albert , which have now merged and are part of the Hoechst Group were.

Amöneburg is a modern industrial estate that emerged from the 1850s. The first residential building was built in 1858, and in 1860 the town had 107 inhabitants. In the following decades, Amöneburg grew, in particular through the establishment of the Dyckerhoff & Söhne cement factory and the chemical factories of Albert and Ottmann & Cie. In 1904 Amöneburg had 1,361 inhabitants. Amöneburg belonged as a dependent district part of town Kastel than this on 1 April 1908 annexation treaty in the city of Mainz incorporated was. Until 1945, Amöneburg belonged to Mainz and was then separated from the Mainz city area by the American authorities together with five other Mainz districts on the right bank of the Rhine due to the demarcation of the occupation zones running through the Rhine and placed under the Wiesbaden city administration with Kastel and Mainz-Kostheim . The Mainz part of the name was retained. In Amöneburg, however, in contrast to the two AKK sisters Mainz-Kastel and Mainz-Kostheim ( AKK stands for “Amöneburg-Kastel-Kostheim”), the name Wiesbaden-Amöneburg has partly established itself. For example, this was the name of the motorway junction of the federal motorway 671 until the motorway renovation was completed in 2010. Today this motorway junction in the Biebrich district is called Wiesbaden / Mainz-Amöneburg. The longstanding dispute between Mainz and Wiesbaden over these three districts is known as the AKK conflict .
Historically and politically, Amöneburg has existed as a district as well as a place to live and work. Own district - and its own Amöneburger land registry - was not there before. Efforts are currently underway to get Amöneburg its own district.
