Welcome to Rodgau, a charming town located in the Offenbach district in the Regierungsbezirk of Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany. Rodgau is part of the metropolitan area known as the Rhein-Main-Gebiet, one of Germany’s strongest economically. The town came into existence in 1979 when the greater community of Rodgau was raised to a town after merging five self-administering communities in 1977. Today, Rodgau has the greatest population of any municipality in the Offenbach district. The history of the current constituent communities dates back to the 8th century. The town lies southeast of Frankfurt am Main in the Frankfurt Rhine Main Region and is an ideal destination for travelers seeking a mix of nature, history, and culture.
