Gonsenheim is a borough in the northwest corner of Mainz, Germany. With about 20,000 inhabitants, it is the most populated borough of Mainz and comes after Oberstadt and before Neustadt as the second biggest part of the capital town.
The history of Gonsenheim reaches back to the Neolithic Era, the Chalcolithic Europe . Its importance grew as a human settlement which became Gonsenheim by the foundation of a Merovingian settlement in the 6th century. This foundation expanded quickly due to the favorable location for agriculture. In 1938 Gonsenheim was suburbanised as a part of Mainz.
