More about the History of Lisberg

Lisberg is noticeable even from far away for the Burg Lisberg. This castle had its first documentary mention in 820 in a donation document, and it is among Germany’s oldest undestroyed castles. From 1600 to 1707, the Protestant line of the Barons of Münster held Lisberg as a fief, and then until 1790 the Catholic line did so. The castle is now privately owned. Concerts are sometimes held in the castle’s courtyard.

The palatial residence (Schloss) in the outlying centre of Trabelsdorf was acquired in 1664 by the Marshals of Ostheim and in 1700 it was newly built. It now houses the administrative community (Verwaltungsgemeinschaft) of Lisberg (whose member communities are Lisberg and Priesendorf) and a medical practice.

With the Act of the Confederation of the Rhine in 1806, the Barons of Münster-Lisberg saw their overlordship pass to Bavaria. The community of Lisberg has existed since 1978, consisting of the two formerly autonomous communities of Lisberg and Trabelsdorf.

South of Lisberg can be found a Jewish graveyard on a plot of higher ground with some 130 gravestones. In Lisberg, about 1825, there were 17 Jewish families. The number had shrunk so sharply by the early 20th century, however, that the synagogue was sold.
