Things to See in Königsfeld
Königsfeld parish- The church has its consecration on 25 July and 25 November. The original church patronage, to St. Kilian, likely goes back to the 8th century when the original parish of Königsfeld belonged to the Bishopric of Würzburg (Würzburg vacation rentals | Würzburg travel guide). The parish church lies in the middle of the fortified graveyard, whose western gate and part of whose wall go back to Romanesque times. In the time when Gothic was fashionable, an apse was built onto the tower in the east. The expansion only came into being after the Thirty Years' War. In 1710, the tower was integrated into the main building. The tower has a bulbous cupola.

More about the History of Königsfeld
In the 17th century, the community had grown to more than 1,000 inhabitants. However, the population shrank sharply in the Thirty Years' War and the community could never again build up to this former figure. Königsfeld could only reach the figure that it has today – roughly 1,400 – through the amalgamation of six outlying communities. After 1945, refugees driven from the formerly German lands east of the Oder and Neiße raised the population somewhat, but since the community’s agriculture-based economy afforded few a livelihood, many left again to seek work in towns. Königsfeld and the surrounding places weathered the First World War without great losses. However, in the last days of the Second World War, Königsfeld lay for several hours under fire from United States soldiers. It could have been worse but for a wounded US soldier, whose retrieval forestalled further damage. In the course of administrative reform in May 1978, the communities of Stadelhofen and Wattendorf became along with Königsfeld the administrative community (Verwaltungsgemeinschaft) of Steinfeld.
