More about the History of Sulzbach am Main
During Roman times, the Main and the Limes Germanicus formed Germania’s border with the then Roman-occupied Odenwald area across the river. In the time that followed, several tribes lived in the Sulzbach valley: the Chatti, the Alamanni, the Burgundians and the Franks. It was likely in Charles Martel’s time (714–741) that the municipality of Ruchelnheim, which lay within what are now Sulzbach’s municipal limits and which was forsaken in the Thirty Years' War, was founded. As far back as Carolingian times, such places lying on the Sulzbach or Leidersbach as Sulzbach, Ebersbach (Ebersbach vacation rentals | Ebersbach travel guide), Leidersbach and Roßbach came into being; it is also likely that Soden’s founding goes back to late Carolingian times.
As in all other areas in the Spessart, farmland was splintered by Mainz (Mainz vacation rentals | Mainz travel guide) inheritance law in the 18th and 19th centuries pulling Sulzbach, too, into an economic downswing with its attendant consequences for living conditions. Only with the onset of industrialization in Aschaffenburg (Aschaffenburg vacation rentals | Aschaffenburg travel guide) and the opening of the Aschaffenburg-Miltenberg railway line in 1876 did things begin to get better. The formerly self-administering municipalities of Dornau and Soden were amalgamated with Sulzbach on 1 July 1971 and 1972 respectively. The municipality was raised to market on 15 May 1973.
