More about the History of Kronach

1003 AD was when Kronach was first mentioned. King Henry V recognized it as a city in 1122 and then it earned its city rights in 1803. During the Thirty Years War, Kronach was besieged by a large majority of Swedes and German allies on several occasions from 1632 to 1634.

After World War II, Kronach survived relatively unscathed and in April 1945 was occupied by the Americans. The postwar period was marked by the proximity to the inner German border, and the integration of a large number of homeless. The Landesgartenschau 2002, the latest milestone in the history of the city, carries the city into a preparation for this event, promoting refurbishing of buildings and rectifying environmental sins of the past few decades.
