Travel Insider Tips for Viereth-Trunstadt
Viereth lies in the northeast outliers of the Steigerwald (forest) and right on the Main’s south bank. The community had its first documentary mention in 911 under the name Fihuriod, from the Old High German words corresponding with the Modern High German words Vieh (“livestock”) and Ried (Ried vacation rentals | Ried travel guide) (“boggy brook”). This makes the Viehbach, a brook (Bach) running through the village, Viereth’s namesake. Until the Bishopric of Bamberg (Bamberg vacation rentals | Bamberg travel guide) was founded, Viereth was part of the Volkfeldgau (a mediaeval Gau lying between Bamberg and the Main Triangle), and thereby also part of the Bishopric of Würzburg (Würzburg vacation rentals | Würzburg travel guide). in 1008, the part of the community lying east of the Viehbach passed to the Bishopric of Bamberg. The part to the west, where the church stood, remained along with Trunstadt with the Bishopric of Würzburg, as it had been all along. In 1803, in the course of Secularization and the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss, the Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg was dissolved as a sovereign state and annexed to the Kingdom of Bavaria. The Prince-Bishopric of Würzburg was likewise abolished in 1803, and here arose once again for a short time the sovereign Duchy of Franconia. Following in 1806 was the annexation of great parts of the former Prince-Bishopric of Würzburg by Bavaria. In 1807, as a result of a new administrative order, western Viereth and the parish of Trunstadt were assigned to the Archbishopric of Bamberg, meaning that the western Vierethers became the Bavarian Crown’s subjects only four years after their neighbours living east of the brook. Viereth has 1,806 inhabitants (as of 30 December 2004).
