Landscape within Carlsberg

Carlsberg is a municipality in the Bad Dürkheim district in Rhineland-Palatinate . According to the number of inhabitants, it is the largest municipality in the Leiningerland community . Carlsberg is a state-approved resort .


The place is on the northern edge of the Palatinate Forest within its swamp forest sub-area between the Haardt mountain range in the south and the A6 motorway in the north in the Leiningerland at an altitude of 330 m. The community consists of the two districts Carlsberg and Hertlingshausen . The Eckbach rises in the municipality .


In the Middle Ages, the settlement of Seckenhusen existed in the area around Carlsberg , which is still reminiscent of the Seckenhäuserhof. In the second quarter of the 18th century, numerous farms were created on a cleared area on the Matzenberg . The scattered settlement was initially called Matzenberg . The name Carlsberg, attested from 1753, recalls Count Georg Carl I. August Ludwig von Leiningen-Westerburg-Neuleiningen , who had ruled since 1740 and who established Carlsberg as a village.

The Hertlingshausen district is older than Carlsberg itself. The Augustinian convent Hertlingshausen had existed in Hertlingshausen from around 1160 . This was first mentioned in 1212 as Hertingeshusen . After a major fire in 1460 and looting in 1504, the monastery was given up in 1520/21. When the monastery was abolished, the place already existed as a parish was established instead. According to local tradition, most of the village was built from the stones of the monastery.

From 1798 to 1814, when the Palatinate was part of the French Republic (until 1804) and then part of the Napoleonic Empire , Carlsberg was incorporated into the canton of Grünstadt and the seat of its own Mairie , which also included Hertlinghausen. In 1815 the village was added to Austria after the Congress of Vienna . Just one year later, like the entire Palatinate, it moved to the Kingdom of Bavaria . From 1818 to 1862 the place belonged to the Landkommissariat Frankenthal ; from this the district office of Frankenthal emerged.

From 1939 the community was part of the Frankenthal (Palatinate) district . After the Second World War , the place became part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate within the French occupation zone . In the course of the first Rhineland-Palatinate administrative reform , the place moved to the newly created district of Bad Dürkheim ; at the same time, the neighboring town of Hertlingshausen was incorporated into Carlsberg. Three years later, Carlsberg became part of the also newly created Verbandsgemeinde Hettenleidelheim . In 2018 the association was assigned to the community of Leiningerland .

coat of arms

Carlsberg Coat of Arms
Blazon : "In red a continuous patted golden cross, at the top left a silver lily, at the top right a silver-armored silver eagle, at the bottom left a growing golden spearhead placed obliquely to the left, a growing green fir tree at the bottom right."
Justification of the coat of arms: It was approved on February 25, 1970 by the district government of Rheinhessen-Pfalz and corresponds to the coat of arms of Hertlingshausen (district of Carlsberg since June 7, 1969) approved by the Mainz Ministry of the Interior .

The former leiningen-westerburg village of Hertlingshausen emerged from the monastery of the same name. The lily refers to the Augustinian choir women, the golden cross in red to the Westerburg rule, to the Leininger counts the eagle. Spear and fir as symbols for game and forest characterize the landscape of the municipality.
