The Huguenot town of Neu-Isenburg is a medium -sized town in the Offenbach district in the immediate vicinity of Frankfurt am Main and Offenbach am Main . The city is in the immediate vicinity of Frankfurt Airport .

Founded as a refuge for Huguenots , the city was increasingly shaped by industry from 1900 onwards. Today it is primarily the location of service companies and a residential area for commuters to Frankfurt. The city is known regionally for the “ Isenburg-Zentrum ” (IZ) shopping center , the Huguenot Hall, the drive-in cinema in Gravenbruch and the forest swimming pool.

Neighboring communities

Neu-Isenburg borders the independent city of Frankfurt am Main to the west and north , the independent city Offenbach am Main to the east and the cities of Dreieich , Langen and Mörfelden-Walldorf ( Groß-Gerau district ) to the south .

City structure

Neu-Isenburg within its city limits

Neu-Isenburg consists of the old core town , the incorporated district of Zeppelinheim and the satellite town built in the 1960s, the district of Gravenbruch . The development of the districts is separated by forest.

Geographical location

All three districts are located in a relatively flat, closed forest area. While the area of ​​the core city has been largely free of forests and covered with pastures or gardens for centuries, the Zeppelinheim and Gravenbruch are built on clearing islands . Due to the high population density of the Rhine-Main area, the remaining forest in the Isenburg city area has been advertised as a protected forest and may not be cleared for further settlement. Since most of the remaining meadow and garden areas were built on from the 1990s, the rapid growth of the city now seems to have come to an end for the time being.


Neu-Isenburg was on 24 July 1699 as Exulant of Huguenots founded French Protestants after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in France had been forced to flee. Their new sovereign, Count Johann Philipp von Isenburg-Offenbach, guaranteed them protection, free use of the French language and freedom of religion . He allowed them to settle in the Dreieichwald , where the pilgrimage chapel to the Holy Cross stood in the Middle Ages . To thank the Count, the city was named Neu-Isenburg after him. The ground plan of the place was designed by Andreas Loeber. The city had a square plan. Diagonal streets lead from the corners to the market square. In addition, the middle of the outer sides are connected to the square market square by streets. Neu-Isenburg was one of the planned cities of the 17th and 18th centuries. The settlers initially worked as farmers, but very soon remembered the trades they had originally learned, such as hosiery, and thus laid the foundation for the economic development of Neu-Isenburg. The surrounding communities eyed the French settlers with great suspicion and called the place " Welsches Dorf". The Welsche Weg in the Frankfurt city forest gives an indication of this . This forest lane leads from Frankfurt-Sachsenhausen to the northern outskirts of Neu-Isenburg.

House to the lion
Old Town Hall 1702–1876

On May 20, 1700, Pastor Isaac Bermond held the first service under an old oak tree in the middle of the church square. Around 1701 the forester's house (today: Frankfurter Haus restaurant ) was built by the city of Frankfurt am Main on the city limits of Neu-Isenburg. A first wooden French Reformed church was built between 1702 and 1706. The foundation stone was laid on Ascension Day in 1702. The town hall on the market square was also built in 1702. In the same year the Haus zum Löwen was mentioned for the first time, which was used as the Au Lion d'Or (To the Golden Lion) restaurant until 1918 and which today serves as a local museum. The first school followed in 1704 and the Bansamühle in 1705. The wooden church was replaced by a stone building between 1773 and 1775. In 1781 the first German-speaking school was built.

After the Congress of Vienna in 1815, the county of Ysenburg with the Oberamt Offenbach and the associated municipality of Neu-Isenburg fell to the Grand Duchy of Hesse . In 1828 the Prussian-Hessian Customs Union built a customs house (Frankfurter Strasse 10) as the main customs office on the border with what was then the Free City of Frankfurt .

Despite the considerable reservations, German families also moved to the city from the 18th century, which led to the fact that the church was alternately preached in German and French from 1761, much to the reluctance of the French population. Finally, in 1829, German was established as the official language.

In 1846 the Main-Neckar Railway near Neu-Isenburg was completed, and in 1852 the town received its own train station, the Neu Isenburg train station .

French school from 1704
Opened in 1960, the Gravenbruch drive-in cinema was the first drive-in cinema in Europe.

In 1885 the Frankfurter Waldbahn to Frankfurt was opened (today tram line 17 of the Frankfurt VgF transport company). The tram used to be accessible by privately operated horse-drawn buses or on foot or by bike. In the 1950s there was a rail bus connection to the station in the far west. Since 1962 bus connections have been established between the train station and the tram stop and from there to the Buchenbusch settlement, since 1973 also to Gravenbruch, since 1977 to Zeppelinheim.

On February 4, 1889, Neu-Isenburg was granted city rights. In 1899 Neu-Isenburg received its city ​​coat of arms on the occasion of its 200th anniversary .

In April 1896, the first secondary school in Neu-Isenburg began operating with the higher citizen school (today: Goetheschule).

The construction of the modern infrastructure began in 1898 when the first waterworks and the electricity company went into operation. The local council decided against gas and in favor of electricity as a source of energy. Gas did not become available primarily for cooking until 1913; Natural gas has been used to generate heat since 1970.

On October 23, 1911, the first Catholic Church of St. Joseph was consecrated in the predominantly Protestant city .

In the 1920s, anti-Semitic attitudes became apparent in police files. In the Reichstag election on March 5, 1933, 40.8% of New Isenburg citizens voted for the NSDAP. In Neu-Isenburg, too, there were National Socialist marches and “flag roll calls”. Oppositionists were persecuted. The Neu-Isenburg Home, founded by Bertha Pappenheim in 1907, was partially destroyed by arson during the Night of the Reichspogrom in 1938. It was disbanded on March 31, 1942. The children, the young mothers and the nurses were deported and murdered or “transferred to their hometowns”. In 1935 a so-called "Jewish list" was compiled and published. Many Jewish fates are documented by official files and other evidence that have been preserved from this period.

During the Second World War from 1943 to 1945, heavy damage was caused by air raids. After the end of the war in 1945, an extensive district in the west of the city had to be cleared for the US occupation forces.

In 1959, construction began on the residential town of Gravenbruch after the forest there was cleared. Almost 7,000 people found a new home in the satellite city , to the east between the “core city” and Heusenstamm in the forest. In the 1960s, Gravenbruch was known as the “most child-rich community in Europe”.


As part of the regional reform in Hesse , the municipality of Zeppelinheim was incorporated into the city of Neu-Isenburg by law on January 1, 1977, limited to the part of the district that lies east of the federal motorway 5 . The parts of the district to the west of it belong to the airport grounds and have been incorporated into the city of Frankfurt.

For the districts of Zeppelinheim and Gravenbruch, local districts with local advisory councils and local councilors were set up. The district of Zeppelinheim consists of the district of the former municipality of Zeppelinheim, which is incorporated into Neu-Isenburg. The district of Gravenbruch includes hall 25 of the Neu-Isenburg district.

Population development

When the town was founded in 1699, Neu-Isenburg had 46 inhabitants. In 1829 it was 1576; In 1890 5,894 people lived here. In 1939 Neu-Isenburg had 15,078 inhabitants. By 1961 there were 25,362. The number increased significantly to 34,856 in 1970. After the incorporation of Zeppelinheim and the construction of Gravenbruch, 35,000 people lived in the city in 1983. In March 2020 there were 38,190 inhabitants,


City Council

The city council is the highest body of the city. Its political composition is determined every five years in local elections by the city's electorate. Whoever has reached the age of 18 and is a German citizen within the meaning of the Basic Law or a citizen of one of the other member states of the European Union may vote. Everyone has to have been registered in the city for at least three months.

The individual voter has the opportunity his votes on several candidates - including those of various electoral lists - to distribute ( cross-voting ), or to pile on individual candidates ( cumulate ). To this end, the voter has as many votes as there are seats to be allocated. For the city council this is 45.

The local elections on March 6, 2016 produced the following results, compared to previous local elections:

A coalition of CDU , Greens , FDP and FWG was founded, a so-called Tanzania coalition. This coalition was terminated on July 25, 2018 by the FDP, the remaining coalition partners are sticking to the coalition.

Since January 29, 2018 by former AFD -Fraktionsvorsitzende Bernd Vohl , MP, and the AFD-member Wolfgang Hufer-attached.

Twin cities

Neu-Isenburg is also friends with the cities of Alexandria (Minnesota) and Sighișoara (Romania).

To maintain these partnerships, there is a support association for town twinning European meetings in Neu-Isenburg e. V. (FSP) .


Tram at the Neu-Isenburg city limit stop


Due to its close proximity to the trade fair city of Frankfurt and the airport , Neu-Isenburg is an attractive location for companies in a wide variety of industries, including many hotels: In 2008, Neu-Isenburg recorded 323,776 overnight stays. This corresponds to approx. 1.2% of all overnight stays in Hessen .

The city has meanwhile changed from a location for manufacturing to a service location, which is mainly due to its convenient location.

Established businesses:

In the 20th century, the place was mainly characterized by the chemical processing industry and food production:

Some of these companies still have administrative headquarters in Neu-Isenburg.

Reception building at Neu Isenburg station


The station Neu Isenburg is located on the Main-Neckar Railway Frankfurt (Main) -Heidelberg. The Neu Isenburg – Neu Isenburg Stadt railway line, which has now been disused, branched off here , and could be revitalized by the West Regional Tangent.

The city has several connections to the German motorway network ( A 3 , A 5 , A 661 ) and is integrated into the S-Bahn system of the Rhine-Main region. It is served by the S-Bahn lines S3 and S4, Zeppelinheim by the S7. There is also a tram connection with line 17 on the northern outskirts via Frankfurt Central Station to Frankfurt Rebstock . The plan is to connect the city center to the rail network with a two-system urban railway line ( Regional Tangente West ).

The Frankfurt airport is located on the district border and the train station Neu Isenburg possessed only one in Hesse from 29 May 1961 to 25 October 2014, two Verladegleise for car trains . The motorail terminal has since been abandoned.

natural reserve

NSG break from Gravenbruch

The nature reserve Bruch von Gravenbruch (NSG identification 1438008) is located in an extensive forest area north of the state road L3117 east of Neu-Isenburg and west of the Gravenbruch district . It covers approximately 93.47 hectares of forest. The purpose of the protection is to preserve the extensively used or fallow meadow areas with the surrounding natural forests, in particular quarry forests, as a habitat for the plant and animal communities with a high proportion of endangered species, which are determined by different levels of moisture.

With an identical layout, the nature reserve is also designated as FFH area DE-5918-304 NSG Bruch von Gravenbruch. This makes it part of the European Natura 2000 network of protected areas.

The name Bruch is derived from swamp. It is a fen that took a good 300 years to form its current biotope structure. One of the special features is a high groundwater level. The numerous small bodies of water are important for the amphibian world. In 1984 the Gravenbruch quarry was designated as a nature reserve (NSG) by the Darmstadt regional council due to its high ecological value and after efforts by the city of Neu-Isenburg, the Hessian Society for Ornithology and Nature Conservation (HGON) and the Nature Conservation Union of Germany (NABU) .

Two of the enclosed meadow areas, the Eirundwiese and the Schönseewiese, are also of floristic interest. Around 200 plant species were identified in the NSG, 16 of which are on the red list. These include the endangered Hartman's sedge ( Carex hartmanii ), the thread sedge ( Carex lasiocarpa ) and the swamp hair strand ( Peucedanum palustre ). Other special species are swamp violet ( Viola palustris ), swamp blood-eye ( Comarum palustre ) and the common water hose ( Utricularia vulgaris ), which is an animal-catching plant. There are reptiles ( grass snake ), amphibians (agile frog and tree frog) as well as rare species of birds such as black woodpecker, red-backed shrimp, mistletoe and tree pipit.

NSG Gehspitzweiher near Neu-Isenburg

The nature reserve Gehspitzweiher near Neu-Isenburg (NSG identification 1438005) is located south-west of Neu-Isenburg in the forest area between the B 44 and Main-Neckar-Bahn south of the L 3117. The north-south length is about one kilometer, the width usually varies between 200 and 300 meters. The pit floor is approx. 20 meters below the level of the surrounding area. The nature reserve, located in the forest between Zeppelinheim and Neu-Isenburg, covers an area of ​​around 25 hectares , which is owned by the City of Frankfurt . It is a former excavation pit, which was initially created through the exploitation of clay deposits, later sand and gravel by the Philipp Holzmann company. In the meantime used as a bathing lake, the area was protected in 1981.

The nature reserve Gehspitzweiher is very valuable due to its biodiversity. 98 different species of birds have been observed here, including sandpiper, osprey, falcon, common snipe, little grebe, great crested grebe and kingfisher. Eight amphibian species also live in and around the Gehspitzweiher: mountain newt, pond newt, common toad, natterjack toad, tree frog, agile frog, water frog and common frog. There are also 20 species of grasshopper, 26 species of dragonfly, 18 species of butterfly, various ground beetles, hymenoptera and, last but not least, various mammals, especially bats. Of the insects that have found a new habitat here, the blue-winged wasteland shrimp ( Oedipoda caerulescens ) and 25 species of dragonflies, including the ornamental moss damsel ( Leucorrhinia caudalis ) discovered in 2009 , are particularly noteworthy. Eight amphibian species and around 250 plant species were also found in the NSG.

In the 18th century, the mining of clay in the old Heegwald was approved for a brick factory located there. In 1872, the Philipp Holzmann company acquired ten acres of arable land on Sprendlinger Weg and all the facilities for brick production. The small business developed into an extensive factory with a rail connection to Neu-Isenburg. From 1945 onwards, clay mining was replaced by the decade-long mining of deeper gravel with dredging. From the beginning of the 1960s, illegal, unregulated swimming was first observed, later there was a cordoned off swimming area and plans by the city of Frankfurt to build a regatta course and a hotel. From 1969 onwards, the groundwater level was found to have dropped by around five meters, which left a bare, sandy pit floor with a few smaller bodies of water. The pit could no longer be used commercially as a bathing lake, and the city of Frankfurt's plans had to be discarded. The appearance of the little ringed plover and other rare bird species as well as the natterjack toads aroused the interest of ornithologists and other nature conservationists, who prepared an initial report. Around 1970, the gravel mining was essentially stopped. In 1976 a recess was made in the bottom of the pit to stabilize the fish population. In 1977 the Hessian Society for Ornithology and Nature Conservation (HGON) applied for designation as a nature reserve (NSG). From 1977 a recultivation took place by afforestation of the southern and eastern slopes of the pit with gray alder , locust , pine and sea ​​buckthorn . By ordinance of November 20, 1981, it was designated as a nature reserve .

The purpose of protection is to secure a valuable retreat in the succession stage for endangered amphibian and plant species. In 2016 an attempt was made to develop a new protection concept in order to serve the interests of nature conservation and the public as much as possible.
