I think they stopped flying during 1998/99 or so. I remember that one of their 763's had a front gear failure during taxying at HAM shortly before the route was withdrawn. There even was a picture of this incident in the former "Luftfahrt" magazine.
I can only speculate about the reasons - one of them might be that it was more efficient to use the new codesharing-deal with AF, which preceeded the formation of "Skyteam" in about 1998, and channel the traffic via CDG.

If my memory serves me, it was a bit earlier, in 1994.
They promised to resume service "at a later stage" but
DL never came back again.
Additionaly a 767-300 was involved in a ground accident in Sep 1993 while lining up rwy 33 causing the right undercarriage to collapse through the wing.
They got not the best image at EDDH from then...
