Long Description:
[DE] "Oppenheimanlage

Freiherr Abraham von Oppenheim und Freifrau Charlotte haben 1873 Burg und Rittergut Bassenheim erworben. Sie waren in der Bassenheimer Geschichte die größten Wohltäter der Gemeinde. Nach dem Tod des Freiherrn hat die Freifrau 1885 den Bassenheimer Bürgern das Krankenhaus, einen Kindergarten und eine Nähschule gestiftet. Zuvor hatten die Oppenheims den Schlosspark vergrößert, das Rentamt, den Marstall und das Haus am See nach den Plänen des Baumeisters Julius Raschdorff errichten, die Schlossgärtnerei und das Forsthaus bauen und die Häuser am Walpotplatz restaurieren lassen. Großzügig förderten sie den Bau von Wohnhäusern der Bürger. Noch vor ihrem Tod 1887 hat die Freifrau den Auftrag zum Bau des Mausoleums gegeben, in dem das Ehepaar von Oppenheim die letzte Ruhe gefunden hat."

Informationsschild

[EN] "Oppenheim plant

Baron Abraham von Oppenheim and Baroness Charlotte acquired the castle and manor of Bassenheim in 1873. They were the biggest benefactors of the community in the history of Bassenheim. After the death of the Baron, the Baroness donated the hospital, a kindergarten and a sewing school to the citizens of Bassenheim in 1885. Before that, the Oppenheims had enlarged the castle park, built the Rent Office, the Marstall and the house by the lake according to the plans of the master builder Julius Raschdorff, built the castle garden and the forester's house, and had the houses on Walpotplatz restored. They generously supported the construction of residential houses for the citizens. Even before her death in 1887, the Baroness commissioned the construction of the mausoleum in which the von Oppenheim couple found their last resting place".
