Culture and sightseeing
Leisure and sport
Clubs in the municipality are the gymnastic club TV 1898 Bubenheim, the table tennis club TTC Bubenheim and the singing club Gesangverein 1879 Bubenheim with the offshoot Weedies Soundtrain. An institution known beyond Germany’s borders is the film production company Exquiser Films.
The Bubenheim kermis (church consecration festival, locally known as the Kerb) is always held on the third weekend in July.
Economy and infrastructure
Bubenheim is known above all for its winegrowing in the Kallenberg and Honigberg vineyards. Besides wine, though, asparagus and fruit are also counted among the municipality’s main sources of income. The proximity to Ingelheim (Boehringer), Mainz (ZDF, Schott) and to the Frankfurt Rhine Main Region makes Bubenheim a popular dormitory and weekend village for many commuters.
