More about the History of Mönchberg

The community was originally a postal station on the way from Würzburg (Würzburg vacation rentals | Würzburg travel guide) by way of Wertheim (Wertheim vacation rentals | Wertheim travel guide) to Aschaffenburg (Aschaffenburg vacation rentals | Aschaffenburg travel guide). Its original name was Manno Gebur, meaning “Manno’s Building”, after the station’s first owner. In the Middle Ages, Mönchberg was granted town rights along with its own jurisdiction by Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor. The settlement in the Spessart earned its livelihood through forestry and handicrafts. Because the town lay far off the trade routes and so far from the settled areas on the Main, however, Mönchberg could develop no further in the end and therefore had to give up its town rights, which today are granted strictly to communities with a population of 5,000 or more. Market rights, however, the community got to keep.
