- A city with history and sights
is a city in the Wetteraukreis that can look back on a long history. First mentioned in 780 as Gauuirada, Gedern
received city rights in 1356 and later fell to Eppstein-Königstein. After the extinction of the Stolberg-Gedern
line in 1804, Gedern
fell to the main line of the Counts of Stolberg-Wernigerode, who had to cede it to the Grand Duchy of Hesse in 1806.
One of the sights in Gedern
Castle, which was built in the 14th century and is now used as a town hall. The castle is surrounded by a beautiful park and offers a great view of the city.
Another highlight is the St. Marien Protestant Church, which was built in the 13th century and is one of the oldest churches in the region. The church impresses with its Gothic architecture and beautiful windows.
