Description

Essingen is part of the Offenbach an der Queich community, and thus of the Südliche Weinstraße district.

Jewish history is also interesting: in the 19th century, around a fifth of the population was Jewish. The synagogue, built in 1821, was abandoned in 1937. The Jewish cemetery, the largest in the Palatinate with 1,700 gravestones dating from the 17th to 19th centuries, tells this story.

We look forward to your visit to Essingen!
