Stadt Rüsselsheim

Rüsselsheim is a city on the river and in the flow. The town’s history is marked by industrial expansion and the spirit of invention – shaped by the era of the German »economic miracle« and enriched by the constant influx of creative and industrious people. However, creative power in Rüsselsheim is not limited to the development and production of technical innovations, but also occurs in the cultural sector. The Art and Cultural Foundation Opelvillen invites viewers to explore art at the highest level, but is also dedicated to supporting young people and talents, offering young artists their own section in its exhibitions and space to develop in its internal »laboratory«. The renowned series ›Jazz Factory‹ attracts the great names of the jazz scene to the banks of the Main and shows hungry talents the sound and look of musical passion. The Municipal Theatre is well regarded, offering a stage for opera, operetta, comedy and dance as well as the ambitious »Young Ensemble« or the children’s and youth festival ›Starke Stücke‹. Rüsselsheim is home to many cultures and values culture highly, and that makes it such a vibrant place.
