The District Court of Euerdorf was a Bavarian court of ordinary jurisdiction that existed from 1879 to 1925 and was based in Euerdorf in Lower Franconia .


With the entry into force of the Courts Constitution Act on October 1, 1879, a district court was established in Euerdorf, whose districts consisted of the communities of Aura an der Saale , Elfershausen , Engenthal , Euerdorf, Greßthal , Machtilshausen , Oberthulba , Ramsthal , Sulzthal , Trimberg , Wasserlosen , Wirmsthal and Wittershausen of the previous district court of Euerdorf . The higher-level instances were the Schweinfurt Regional Court and the Bamberg Higher Regional Court .

With effect from July 1, 1925, the Euerdorf District Court was repealed and its district was merged with that of the Hammelburg District Court .


The district court was located in a two-storey, gable-top flat-gable roof building at Richtgasse 3. The building, which was built in the classicist style in 1822 , housed the local gendarmerie station after 1925 and is now a listed building. Next to it is the former Fronveste , a former prison from 1925, the core of which is late Gothic, labeled “1555” and “1557”. It was changed in the middle of the 19th century.
