In 1979 I moved with my family to Babenhausen/Hessen, Germany. I moved away in 1992 but came back in 2010.


The town has so much to offer. In the 1980's I became a tour guide, which gave me in insight to it's history. In 2011 I renewed my membership in the local historical society and once again became a tour guide.


On these pages I would like to share some impressions of this lovely town, which is a "city" by rights though not by size. Historical dates and other information will be added with time.......


Babenhausen is composed of the main town plus a number of smaller villages. Langstadt is the villiage I moved to in 2010, Carsten lived for a short time in Hergershausen, the same villiage Regina built her house. Then there is Sickenhofen, Harpertshausen, and Harreshausen.


Then there is also the Kaserne, a collection of buildings built by the citizens around 1900. From after WWII up until 2008 (?) there were American Army soldiers and their families stationed there.

Dokuments / Information / Photos


With some exceptions, most of the photos found here are my own. Historical information I have attained through various books, pamphlets, documents, and other publications of the "Heimat und Gesichtsverein Babenhausen e.V.", plus searching through the internet. I have tried to make sure that any items published here are either already available for public use on the internet or are my own.
