Bischberg’s constituent communities are Bischberg, Rothof, Trosdorf, Tütschengereuth and Weipelsdorf, each with an adjoining traditional rural land unit, known in German as a Gemarkung. Each has the same name as the neighbouring constituent community (it is traditional for a Gemarkung to be named after a town or village lying nearby).

The most striking building other than the church is the Unteres Schloss (“Lower Palatial Castle”) built in 1743 by Carl Maximilian Zollner von Brand on the occasion of his wedding. Today the building houses a Greek restaurant.

The Bischberger Kirchweih, a church consecration festival, is held yearly from the Thursday before to the Monday after the first Sunday in September.

More about the History of Bischberg

Bischberg had its first documentary mention in 1013 as Biscoffesberge.

Before Secularization, Bischberg belonged to the High Monastery at Bamberg. The most important landowner was the Michelsberg Monastery, which in the 18th century also held the local overlordship. Since the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss of 1803, the community has belonged to Bavaria. In the course of administrative reform in Bavaria, today’s community came into being under the Gemeindeedikt (“Community Edict”) of 1818.
