He was born in Mühlhausen/Thuringia on June 12 1816, the fifth child of the tobacco merchant Christoph Polykarp Roebling. In Mühlhausen Roebling attended primary school, followed by grammar school. He passed his examination as architect at a mere fourteen years of age. In 1824 Johann August Roebling enrolled at the Royal Polytechnic Institute in Berlin, where he studied architecture, civil engineering, bridge building, embankment construction, hydraulics and mechanical engineering. On May 11, 1831 Roebling left Mühlhausen for ever along with other emigrants. Roebling and his "emigrant brother” Karl Friedrich founded the colony Germania, soon renamed Saxonburg, in the State of Pennsylvania. On September 30, 1837 Johann August Roebling took American citizenship. Roebling successfully introduced the use of wire ropes, which he manufactured in Saxonburg from 1841 on. In 1848 he founded the Roebling works in Trenton. In 1867 the New York State Parliament passed a law allowing the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. In the very same year John A. Roebling was engaged as Chief Engineer of the project. The supervision of the bridge construction was taken over by the eldest son, Washington A. Roebling. In 1833 the Brooklyn Bridge was officially opened.

"Discover a medieval town- back to historic roots"

Mühlhausen is known as the city of gates and churches. Because of the 56 steeples and towers of its city wall the place was originally referred to as " Mulhusia turrita", which means "Mühlhausen ornamented with steeples and towers".

In mediaeval times Mühlhausen ranked second after Erfurt as the most important city in Thuringia. Its architectural diversity provides evidence of the economic and cultural importance the former imperial free-city (Reichsstadt) once had, as does the city itself with its well-preserved, fully accessible city wall.

During the Peasant´s War Mühlhausen was a gathering point of the rebellion. Thomas Müntzer, reformer and their leader, used to preach there in the Marienkirche (St. Mary's Church) with its five naves. Furthermore Mühhausen is known as a centre of protestant church music. The hall church of Divii Blasii with was one of the places where Johann Sebastian Bach worked. In recent years the old town has been redeveloped and regained much of its historic splendour.
