There are three sights located in Heusenstamm that are worth a visit: the Renaissance Castle Schönborn which was built in 1663, the baroque church St. Cäcilia and the gateway which was built in honor of emperor Franz I in 1764.
Heusenstamm scores with 3 special attractions: the Renaissance Castle which was built in 1663 by Philipp Erwein and which is located by the idyllic river Biberaue. During the summer the festival "Culture Summer", during the fall the "Wine festival at the castle" and during the winter the famous "St. Nicholas market" take place in front of the castle. The baroque church St. Cäcilia, one of the most beautiful in the Rhine-Main region, was built following the plans of the architect Balthasar Neumann. It was completed in 1740 and impresses with its architecture, ceiling frescoes and an elaborate high altar. Commissioner for this jewel was the countess Maria Theresia of Schönborn. Another culture-historical and interesting landmark is the gateway building which was built in honor of emperor Franz I in 1764. It was built on occasion of his son being elected Roman King. Since emperor Franz and his sons weren´t allowed to attend the ceremony they waited outside with their entourage until it was over. The estate Patershausen is located in the woods, a little outside of Heusenstamm. It was established in 800 and was a Benedictine, Cistercian and Jesuit abbey before it was bought by the countess of Schönborn in 1741. Today it belongs to the city and is used for environmental-friendly farming.
