Morfelden-Walldorf (Hesse)

Germany is located in Central Europe and it shares borders with Denmark in the North, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France in the West, Austria and Switzerland in the South and Poland and the Czech Republic in the East. The North Sea and the Baltic Sea represent additional National Borders in the North. The official language of Germany is German and Berlin is the capital.
Morfelden-Walldorf is a town in the Grob-Gerau district, lying in the Frankfurt Rhein-Main Region in Hesse, Germany. It lies in the triangle formed by the South Hessian cities of Frankfurt am Main, Darmstadt and Wiesbaden, near Frankfurt International Airport. Morfelden was initially mentioned in the Lorscher Reichsurbar of 830 to 850 under the name Mersenualt. The church was mentioned in 1304 as being the Parish Church with branch at the Gundhof.
During the Middle Ages, the surrounding forests of Morfelden-Walldorf belonged to the Dreieich Royal Hunting Woods and maintained 30 woods in Morfelden. In 1600, Morfelden was passed to Hesse-Darmstadt. In the 19th century, it developed into a workers' community. Walldorf was founded in 1699 as Waldenserkolonie am Gundhof and was given the name, Walldorf in 1715.
Morfelden-Walldorf came into being on 1 January, 1977 with the merger of the independent towns of Morfelden and Walldorf. Guntheim is the third community in Morfelden-Walldorf's history. It had its first documentary mention in 1307 under the name, villa Guntheim. There was also a Gunthof nearby, but the Gunthof came to be a part of Guntheim in the 15th century through division of inheritance. The village ceased to be a population centre in 1647.
Morfelden-Walldorf is considered as a place with best geographical environment and can trace its origins back to prehistoric times. It, justifiably so, enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited place.
