The major district town of Wertheim

- Figures, data and facts -



In the 1970s, the incorporation of 15 municipalities Bettingen, Dertingen, Dietenhan, Dörlesberg, Grünenwört, Höhefeld, Kembach, Lindelbach, Mondfeld, Nassig, Reicholzheim, Sachsenhausen, Sonderriet, Urphar and Waldenhausen resulted in the town of Wertheim becoming a large district town.


Together with the districts Bestenheid, Eichel-Hofgarten, Reinhardshof, Vockenrot and Warberg and the villages, the overall district area grew to 138 square kilometres – this corresponds to around the area of Mannheim. Other interesting information can be found on the Internet site of the town of Wertheim..


For a large surrounding area that extends far beyond the town's boundaries, Wertheim is a focal point and centre that meets all economic, social and cultural requirements. Wertheim is a shopping centre, has a modern hospital, is the seat of numerous authorities and offices and has schools of all educational facilities and 22 pre-school establishments. The basic cultural facilities include the "Grafschaftsmuseum" and the Glass Museum, the "Schlösschen im Hofgarten", the town library, the adult education college, the "Haus der Jugend und Vereine" (the house of youth and associations), the municipal and state archive, the youth music school and the Baden State Theatre.


In addition, the cultural diversity is truly shaped by numerous activities of the 300+ associations in the town of Wertheim and the surrounding villages. Over the course of the year, there is thus a permanent offering of cultural events – exhibitions, church concerts, song and themed evenings, cabaret events and concerts of different styles, from classic to jazz. Events in the historic setting of Wertheim Castle or at Bronnbach Monastery are particularly attractive in the summer.
