Kuhkapelle in der Augenwaide
The cross vault of the former winegrowers' farm is used in the Augenwaide as a sales room for flowers and decorations. The origin of the typical Rhine-Hessian vaults dates back to the early 19th century. In the course of secularisation, during which church properties, among other things, were nationalised, farm animals moved into cross-vaulted cellars for the first time. Lightweight brick was easy to work with and did not rot; it was also fireproof and more hygienic. Another reason for this construction method is the tried-and-tested statics, which made it possible to roof over even larger rooms in a collapse-proof manner and thus create space for more livestock. Since this construction method was previously only known from churches and monasteries and had a sacral character, a new name was quickly found: The cow chapel! Until the end of the 19th century, this type of construction became a status symbol in Rheinhessen, before cast-iron bars replaced the vault. One of the most beautiful places in our Augenwaide is the stable with cross vault built in the 19th century. Both in our "cow chapel" and in our former wine press house you can be inspired by the numerous decorations. Our farm shop also has a wide range of both local and exotic fruits and vegetables. Some mustard variations, oils, noodles or spice mixtures, which can be colourfully combined with each other and are ideal as gifts, also provide small delicacies.

Schlossgut Lüll, ehemals Oberburg in Wachenheim
The current site of the castle estate was formerly the "Oberburg". Around 1330, it was inhabited by the dynasty of the von Wachenheims. In the middle of the preserved castle complex stands the residential tower, built around 1500, six storeys and 25 metres high. The mighty keep is considered the largest residential tower in Rheinhessen. In times of war, the tower was the last refuge for castle and village inhabitants. A Roman millstone dating from around 300 AD can still be found in the park area. It came to light during excavation work in the "Hinter dem Mühlbrunnen" construction area in the late 1980s. The Baroque cavalier's cottage, built around 1750, can also be found in the castle park. It was originally a design element of the seven-acre palace park laid out by the then owner of the palace, von Botzheim. Because of its special use under Napoleonic occupation around 1800, the building later received the affectionate name "Kavaliershäuschen". The castle estate as well as the park are now privately owned by the Lüll family and run as a winery.Text taken from Wachenheim-historische Gebäude with kind permission.

Altes Zollhaus
Built in its present form in 1857 by the last "Chausseegeld-Erheber" and "Gemeinde-Salzauswieger". The house was a customs post on the border between the Grand Duchy of Hesse and the Kingdom of Bavaria. Here, the state road toll was collected and the trade in salt and spirits was controlled and taxed. At that time, a pound of salt cost eight pfennigs in Hesse and twelve pfennigs in Bavaria, making salt smuggling a lucrative business.
