About the City of Monheim
Monheim am Rhein is a town on the right (eastern) bank of the river Rhine in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
Monheim belongs to the district of Mettmann – with the southern suburbs of Düsseldorf to the north, and the Bergisches Land to the south.
It consists of the city districts (from north to south) Baumberg (about one third) and Monheim (two thirds).
Monheim has approximately 850 years of recorded history.
It was first documented in 1150 as a fishermen's village in the Grafschaft (Earldom) Berg.
It became the administrative centre for the surrounding villages (including many of the villages that now form Düsseldorf) in 1363, and stayed in that position until Napoleon formed the Rhine Confederation in 1806.
Monheim, Baumberg and Hitdorf were then combined into a municipal corporation.
Monheim gained city status in 1960, ten years after it finally incorporated the neighbouring villages Baumberg and Hitdorf.
At the end of 1974 Monheim was incorporated by Düsseldorf as part of a major municipal corporation reform.
After a successful complaint in the federal state's constitutional court in Münster, the city became independent again on 1 July 1976, but lost Hitdorf to Leverkusen.
Since 1994 the official city name has been Monheim am Rhein.
We moved from Monheim to Bochum on 20.04.2020.
