Hofheim am Taunus town archive

The city archive is the city's memory. It preserves the documents that have been created by the city administration for centuries in order to fulfill its tasks. In their entirety, these documents offer a unique wealth of information and data which form the basis for any study of Hofheim's town history.

With the incorporation of the towns of Marxheim (1938), Langenhain (1971), Diedenbergen (1972), Lorsbach (1972), Wallau (1977) and Wildsachsen (1977), their administrative files were also taken over, insofar as they were still available.

In addition to the records of the municipal administration and the municipal enterprises, the town archive also takes on private records, photographs, films and other collections in order to document the development of the town and its society in its entirety.

The city archive also contributes to the communication of the city's history with lectures, exhibitions and publications.

Archive and collection items as well as publications from the archive's own reference library can be made available for use in the city archive by prior appointment. The city archive also provides advice on questions about the city's history independently of a visit to the archive.
