Jakobus is the Catholic parish church on the marketplace at Ruedesheim.
It had been built in 1390-1400 as a hall church on a Romanesque
bell tower from the 12-th century. In a bomb attack in 1944 it
was strongly destroyed. In 1949-1960 the church was rebuilt,
besides, some changes were carried out.
The Gothic gable
wall to the marketplace and the tympanum in the west main entrance
which shows the adoration of the kings in a
relief are held up among other things from the old construction.
A weather vane with half moon and star crowns the tower in memory
of the time of the crusades in which also the knight Brömser
had taken part.
