F: The view from above: this is what Dotzheim looks like today. The place has grown, become part of Wiesbaden, and yet it’s still embedded within the landscape of the Rhine-Main Plain and the Taunus hills beyond the city limits.
We’ve discovered remains of the Romans and the Franks, explored almost nine centuries of local history, and met a few genuine Dotzheim originals. If you’d like to find out even more about the history of Dotzheim – over thirty publications have been issued by the “Heimat- and Verschönerungsverein Dotzheim” over the past decades – that’s the association dedicated to preserving local history and beautifying the village. You can even buy copies of the publications right here – just ask a member of staff!
M: Of course, a donation would also be very welcome – and we certainly hope you’ve enjoyed your visit.
When you leave the museum, look out for the three outdoor exhibits in the little open square by the museum. Replicas of two gravestones have been set into the outside walls of the museum building. In the middle ages, they covered the graves of the Knights of Dotzheim. And by the road, on the edge of the square, you’ll find a copy of the Roman Fortunatus Stone – the oldest record of Dotzheim’s history for which we can establish a date.
Here and now, we’ll say “goodbye” and hope to see you again soon – here at Dotzheim Museum.
