Coat of arms of the municipality Albisheim

Albisheim is situated in the estuary between Leiselsbach and Pfrimm, approximately in the middle of the Zellertal. At an altitude of approx. 160 m above sea level and a length of approx. one kilometre, the village stretches parallel to the Pfrimm and is bordered to the south by the Worms-Kaiserslautern railway line and to the north by the B 47 bypass, the course of which is almost identical to the medieval "Königsstraße". The municipality, which has just under 1750 inhabitants, has a central function for the Zellertal valley.

The local service companies offer work to a part of the working population, but the majority is active as commuters in the Rhine-Neckar area. In addition, there are a few full-time and part-time agricultural businesses, which mainly cultivate sugar beets and grain on the largest part of Albisheim's approx. 1070 hectares of land. In addition, wine is grown on the Wingertsberg and is partly marketed directly by the producers. The local wine-growing area - location: "Heiligenborn" - is thereby affiliated to the large vineyard "Schnepfenpflug vom Zellertal". The community is making great efforts to develop tourism. A mobile home park with direct resting facilities on the B 47 is in the planning stage.

Overnight accommodation and gastronomic offers are available as well as a sauna area and a variety of sports facilities. Hiking enthusiasts get their money's worth in Albisheim, as there are not only charming hiking opportunities along the Pfrimm and the Leiselsbach as well as in the slopes of Wingertsberg, Osterberg and "Saukopf", but also supra-regional hiking trails pass by: For example, the 60 kilometre long "Donnersberg-Wanderweg" (as part of the 375 kilometre long "Westpfalz-Wanderweg") runs through the Albisheim district.


Every year on the third weekend in September, the "King's Festival", which has been celebrated since 1222 and includes a "King's Sermon" and the distribution of "Königswecken", attracts visitors from all over the region to Albisheim.
