More about the History of Münnerstadt

Münnerstadt area has been inhabited since approximately 2100 BC. Early Celtic settlers farmed in the area of Grosswenkheim, Maria Bildhausen and Althausen (all towns within the city boundaries). Around the time of the Birth of Christ, Thuringian and soon after, Franconian settlers moved into the area and used the surrounding hills (Michelsberg) and forests for protection in times of danger. By the 5th century AD a village existed in the area where the base of Michelsberg meets the Lauer River, a tributary of the Franconian Saale river.

On 28 December 770, Egi and Sigihilt donated their complete estate including vineyards to the "Munirihestat" monastery of Fulda. This was the first certified mention of Münnerstadt. Between 770 and 876 there were 18 certificates that proved Münnerstadt was of great importance during the Carolingian period. In 1156 Hermann von Stahleck sponsored the construction of the monastery in Maria Bildhausen. In the 12th century Count Henneberg began to establish his presence in Münnerstadt. Henneberg was also the name of the state in Holy Roman Empire in which Münnerstadt was located. At this time Henneberg built a small castle on the Lauer River and the inhabitants of the old Münnerstadt left their unprotected dwellings and moved within the shadows of the new castle.
