  • La toma de Oppenheim por el ejército español de Flandes tuvo lugar el 14 de septiembre de 1620 durante la fase palatina de la Guerra de los Treinta Años. Tras haberse apoderado de Bad Kreuznach y de Alsheim, el ejército al mando de Ambrosio Spínola hizo amago de marchar sobre Worms, con lo cual el ejército protestante, hasta entonces acuartelado en Oppenheim y sus alrededores, desamparó esta ciudad para dirigirse al socorro de Worms. La maniobra de distracción surtió efecto y Spínola pudo adueñarse con facilidad de una importante cabeza de puente sobre el Rin que le permitiría asegurar víveres y municiones. (es)
