Rosbach vor der Höhe is a town of large green fields and rolling flowered meadows. Yeah, that’s pretty much it. But, not to discount the great countryside on the eastern majestic Taunus Mountains, in a town that’s only about half an hour north of Frankfurt am Main.
Oh, all right; that’s not it. Just don’t go expecting an overabundance of sightseeing. It’s more likely you’ll eat your way through town instead and be more than happy you did.
Rosbach does have one attraction, though, and it’s even a UNESCO World Heritage site. The three villages of Rosbach were once crawling with Ancient Romans who built a castellet. The old castle isn’t the only thing you’ll find here; it’s now an archaeological park, too.
Rosbach vor der Höhe — Top Areas Of Interest
If you like old castles, there is one to be found in the village of Nieder-Rosbach.
After a few hours of sightseeing, it’s time to eat. Try the Schnitzelhaus located at Rodheimerstraße 23 with a menu of Hessian specialties. Like its name implies, the Schnitzelhaus serves a wide variety of schnitzel, as well as something called Knoblauchbrot — hmmmmm!
If you’re not so adventurous, Schnitzelhaus serves salads, pizza, and few fish dishes. Hesse is a huge potato growing region of Germany so it’s no surprise that the vegetable shows up in many dishes.
Wash it all down with a good bottle of a Hessian Riesling and you’ve got yourself a fine dandy meal in a fine dandy town. If it turns out you’ve sampled a bit too much, the Schnitzelhaus is also one of Rosbach’s few guesthouses.
More eating and drinking is on the agenda at the Blütenfest, or Bloom Celebration. And you can buy any number of locally grown (or made) items, every Friday, at the town’s Bauernmarkt.
As it seems, maybe you don’t need too much sightseeing to be a pretty cool place. All you need is some good food and good wine to wash it down. ;-)
