    Dreifrankenstein

    The Dreifrankenstein (German for Three Franconias Stone) is a boundary stone that marks the tripoint where the three Franconian provinces of Upper, Middle and Lower Franconia meet in southern Germany. As part of the regional reforms in 1972 the boundary marker was moved around 7 kilometres as the crow flies to the southeast. Today both points are marked by stones that are referred to as the Old and New Dreifrankenstein.

    The Old Dreifrankenstein (Alter Dreifrankenstein) erected in 1892, is a 135 cm high column made of sandstone. It is located in woodland on the territory of Sandhügel, several hundred metres west of Kleinbirkach (in the borough of the market town of Ebrach) and east of Ebersbrunn (Markt Geiselwind, Lower Franconia) near the source region of the Reiche Ebrach stream. Its GPS coordinates are 49°47′32″N 10°28′01″E.

More about the History of Schlüsselfeld

Schlüsselfeld was founded on 10 June 1336 by Konrad von Schlüsselberg. He was granted the right to found a town by Holy Roman Emperor Ludwig IV. After its founder’s death, Schlüsselfeld passed to the Bishops of Bamberg and Würzburg. Through a compromise, Würzburg also acquired Bamberg’s share of the town in 1390.

As part of the Würzburg High Monastery, the tithing centre (Centamt) of Schlüsselfeld was secularized in Bavaria’s favour in 1803, passed in 1805 with the Peace of Pressburg to the newly formed Grand Duchy of Würzburg, and then eventually, after territorial adjustments in 1810, was returned to Bavaria. In the course of administrative reform in Bavaria, today’s community came into being under the Gemeindeedikt (“Community Edict”) of 1818.

In 1396, the market town of Schlüsselfeld had its town rights confirmed. The Würzburg Bishops built Schlüsselfeld up into an Amt and chose as their Amt seat the Thüngfeld Castle (Thüngfelder Schloss).The town hall built in 1723 declares the following in a Latin inscription: “This house hates unrest, loves peace, punishes crime, upholds the law, honours goodness. ”
