About this picture

Bubenheim is a municipality in the Donnersbergkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Göllheim community .


Bubenheim is located north of the Palatinate Forest Nature Park , between Kaiserslautern and Worms . To the west is Ottersheim , to the north is Zellertal and to the south is Biedesheim . The Ammelbach flows through Bubenheim .

The most important building is the Romanesque St. Peters Church , dating from 1163. It is considered the oldest Romanesque village church in the Palatinate and was built by the priest Gottfried von Beselich , whose building inscription and image have been preserved there.

The Borkensteinermühle, Dörrmühle and Kalkwerk residential areas also belong to Bubenheim .


Traces of a ceramic band settlement at the Borkensteiner Mühle have been preserved from the Stone Age; Burials of the urnfield culture or the older Latène period were discovered from the Iron Age.

Bubenheim is a Franconian foundation of the 6./7. Century and belonged to Wormsgau . In 1140 the place is first mentioned in the spelling Bubinheim (= home of Bobo) when Count Ludwig III. von Arnstein Bubenheim transferred the newly founded Premonstratensian Abbey of Arnstein ( Lahn ). The bailiwick rights lay first with the Palatinate, then with Electoral Palatinate . In 1478 Bubenheim was sold to the St. Martinsstift in Worms . However, the sovereignty remained with the Electoral Palatinate (Unteramt Dirmstein ; from 1705 Unteramt Freinsheim in Oberamt Alzey ).

Bubenheim emerged as a cluster village on the right of the Ammelbach. The founding core is identical to the manorial so-called Great Court southwest of the 11th century church, which was located in a fortified cemetery. In the late Middle Ages, the first buildings were built on today's main street. The village mill and bakery are first mentioned in 1452. In 1491 Bubenheim had 12 stoves. In 1535 a fortified gate system and in 1580 the enclosure by means of a safety fence are mentioned for the first time. As a result of the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648), Bubenheim had only 56 inhabitants in 1667. In the 18th century there was a significant increase in population.

In 1794, Bubenheim and the entire Palatinate were occupied by French revolutionary troops. From 1798 to 1814 the place belonged to the canton Göllheim in the Département du Mont-Tonnerre .

After a phase of the Austro-Bavarian administration (1814-1816), the Palatinate came to Bavaria in 1816 , where it remained until 1946. In 1818 Bubenheim was incorporated into the Land Commissioner's office (since 1862 district office) Kirchheimbolanden. In 1938 the Kirchheimbolanden district office was renamed the Kirchheimbolanden district , which became part of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate after 1946. In 1969 the Rhineland-Palatinate districts of Kirchheimbolanden and Rockenhausen were combined to form the Donnersbergkreis .
