Suburban Dillenburg - Sellershausen

Sellershausen; The City With Two Faces


Welcome to another update of the city of Dillenburg. Please note that I have added some additional information about Nassau in wiki-style on the first page, just in case you are interested. Also, I have experimented a bit with photo-shopping, I would like to hear your commetns on this. I am now working on the airport of Dillenburg, so if you have any tips / hints about building custom airports please contact me.

Introduction to Sellershausen

In the 18th and 19th century Dillenburg was expanding rapidly. People couldn't be housed within the city walls any longer. In the south, Dillenburg expanded across the river, and in the north alongside the lake. In the east, the city council decided to build in between the river and the mountains, and the city of Sellershausen was born. You can see the location of Dillenburg and it's suburbs on this 'map':


The municipality of Sellershausen has two cities within it, Sellershausen itself and Pankreise. Sellershausen is a prosperous city, the business core of Dillenburg, a lovely green and liveable enviroment. On the other side of the river, the city of Pankreise is located. It was constructed in the 60's and 70's, and exists mostly of grey appartment blocks. The gangs call it 'the Southside', inhabitants of Sellershausen call it 'the wrong side'. Pankreise will be shown another time, for now let's just focus on the bright side of the river, right?



General overview of the eastern part of Sellershausen

Sellershausen - Science City


The campus of the University of Dillenburg, also named 'Science City'



Dillenburg's business center, the 'Ost-Ecke'. Nassau has a very advantageous tax policy for foreign businesses which has attracted many multinationals.

Town Hall


The Sellershausen town hall, a truly unique building, in style and architecture. It was constructed in 1950. The inscription falsely states ''Facultad de Ingeniería'', this is obviously a little mistake (the inscription was made on a Monday morning). Right next to it you can see the Rathauspark.

The Market


The Market on the Avenue of May the 18th (it's a mouthful, I know, if you study the wiki-style info on the first page you will probably find out why it is named so). As you can see, they are closing down, it's late in the afternoon and the merchants are heading home.

City Tower


The City Tower, home to the prestigious investment bank ''Sterrmann & Geberthner''. The economic crisis hit them hard, and they almost went bankrupt.

Daunenstrasse 10


Summer residence of the Prime minister, far east of the city, but still within municipality borders. With, sadly, a police post to guard him against terrorists and lunatics


Thanks for viewing, and for commenting, I hope to be back soon with, as mentioned, the airport of Dillenburg.
