The settlement was founded by the Romans in the 1st-century AD. Under its current name, it was first mentioned in the mid-9th-century. Gernsheim received its town rights in the mid-14th-century, granted by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV (1346-78). Into Gernsheim were merged the neighbouring villages Allmendfeld and Klein-Rohrheim.

Best known tourist attractions include Wallfahrtskirche Maria Einsiedel (15th-century church), Peter Schöffer Haus (museum), Rathaus (Town Hall), Stadthalle (merchant guildhall), river scenery and the annual festivals Rheinisches Fischerfest (Rhine's largest fishing festival, held in August), Strassenfastnacht (street parade), Innenstadtfest (downtown), Weihnachtsmarkt (outdoor Christmas Market).

As cruise port, Gernsheim was included in the 2020 schedule of the Phoenix Reisen-operated ship MS Anesha (2015-built). Next is shown the 4-day Rhine cruisetour itinerary roundtrip from Koln.
