Hochheim am Main

Hochheim am Main is a town in the Main-Taunus district of the German state of Hesse. It is located near the right bank of the Main River three miles above its confluence with the Rhine, as well as on the German Timber-Frame Road. There is a historical reference to Hochheim in the chronicles as early as the 8th century. Hochheim is the site of an Austrian military victory over the French Empire on 7 November 1813. Located in the Rheingau, Hochheim has historically been a centre of the wine trade. The English word "hock", a generic term for Rhine wine, is derived from Hochheim. Local children attend school in Hochheim until the Year 11 (UK) or 10th grade (US). After that, if they choose to continue with their education, they have to attend schools in Wiesbaden or Mainz. Hochheim's twin towns are Le Pontet and Waupaca, Wisconsin.
