Inside Michael Schumacher’s beautiful childhood village now a ghost town with just 12 inhabitants thanks to grim reason

A VILLAGE where Michael Schumacher spent his childhood has turned into a ghost town with just 12 residents left thanks to a grim reason. It is a far cry from the once bustling regional centre that homed the Schumacher family. Michael, brother Ralf and parents Rolf and Elisabeth were four of around 1,700 people that used to live in Manheim. As the coal mine continued to grow, it has consumed the country town and in 2024 it is set to expand even further. Ralf Schumacher is regularly seen in Kerpen because he held onto the family home. “Luckily, thanks to the new plans, the go-kart track is still there.”.
