The town of Neu-Isenburg has a rich history that dates back to its establishment in July of 1699 by exiled Huguenots who fled France after the Edict of Nantes was revoked. They named the town after Count Johann Philipp von Isenburg-Offenbach as a way of thanking him for giving them a safe place to live. It was developed as a planned town in the 17th and 18th centuries. Its rich history can still be seen in the older buildings that remain in the old part of town. It has expanded greatly over the centuries, and now includes many modern buildings that reflect its status as a thriving modern suburb of Frankfurt.
