|Location of the municipality Eckersdorf in the district of Bayreuth|
The large community is located on the northern edge of Franconian Switzerland not far from the festival city of Bayreuth . The Sophienberg forms with 593 m above sea level. NN the highest point in the area.
The center of the main town Eckersdorf lies on a hill between the valleys of the Mühlbach and Talmühlbach. The place has recently expanded mainly to the north and west. On the other side of the Talmühlbach, a new district with single-family houses was built, the area of which by far exceeds that of the original village. This part of the community is popularly called “Brunnenwiese”. Along the Bamberger Straße and north of it, this settlement has grown together with the new development areas of Donndorf.
There are 24 officially named parts of the municipality , on Eckersdorf's website there are 22 parts of the municipality, as the Matzenberg and Fantaisie Castle are counted as part of the Donndorf municipality (population figures as of August 2, 2019, only main residences).

The place was first mentioned in the Giechburg Treaty (1143/49) as "Eckehartestorf". The patron saint of the castle chapel, Saint Kilian, suggests a connection with the diocese of Würzburg. The earliest settlement would have been before the establishment of the Bamberg diocese (1007). However, there is no evidence of a Würzburg old tenth on the community hallway.
The naming as well as the designation as a village suggests a manorial foundation, in contrast to the Mistelgau, which is probably populated with free farming associations. The courtyard south of the former castle chapel of St. Kilian in the center of Eckersdorf is probably the origin of this manorial settlement. The medieval village emerged as a cluster of villages around the two castles. However, developments of a street village along the crescent-shaped village street (today: Eckehartstraße) can also be seen. The place name is probably derived from the personal name of the founder Eckehard . His descendants, e.g. B. Uldarich, were dubbed "de Eckehartestorf".
After the end of the nobility of the von Eckersdorf dynasty, the Counts of Andechs-Meranien came into the possession of what is now the municipality and held it until they died out in 1248.
The Lords of Plassenberg acquired their first goods in Eckersdorf in 1420. A hundred years later it was given to them in full as a fief. In 1440 they were called "Lords of St. Gilgenberg" and "zu Eckersdorf". In 1457 they renovated the chapel as patrons of the church and had it decorated with Gothic frescoes. During restoration work (1983/1987), when these frescoes came to light again, two more older layers were found, which suggest that the chapel is very old. In 1519, Lorenz von Plassenberg, who was sitting on St. Gilgenberg, had a school house with an apartment for the cantor built with today's cantor council. In 1526 he had the chapel expanded and the old part redesigned as a chancel. After the Plassenbergs died out in 1552, Eckersdorf passed to the Lords of Lüchau until it fell to the Margraviate of Bayreuth in 1757 .
In church terms, Eckersdorf belonged to the Archdiocese of Bamberg in the Middle Ages. The diocese was divided into diaconates and parishes, which were responsible for a certain area. The area, which was administered by a parish, comprised several villages, but the number of inhabitants was manageable. Eckersdorf split off from the original parish of Bindlach (founded around 900) around 1200, together with the Altenstadt parish . The archdeaconate Kronach was responsible for Eckersdorf and Mistelgau. The area around Tröbersdorf ecclesiastically belonged to the archdeaconate Hollfeld.
The Bayreuth area became Protestant during the Reformation. From the 15th to the 17th century, the resident pastor had to manage the then very poor parish of Mistelgau, with varying degrees of success as a “future church”.
The center around the two places of residence was located on the edge of the Rhätsandsteinschluchten Salamandertal and Gilgen ditch. When the place expanded after the Thirty Years' War, new farmsteads were laid out along the Rhätsandsteinkante. As a result, the valuable arable land (field) was still available for agricultural use. A second criterion was the drinking water supply via draw wells, which limited the choice of location for new farmsteads due to the scarcity of groundwater directly on the edge of the Rhätkante.
The parish chronicle of 1778 lists 60 households in Eckersdorf, 13 in Forst, 3 in Hardt and 4 in Lohe.
As part of the Prussian principality of Bayreuth since 1792, Eckersdorf came to France in the Treaty of Tilsit and was sold to the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1810 . In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria, today's municipality was created with the municipal edict of 1818 .
In 1796 Jobst Christoph Ernst von Reiche named 64 houses in Eckersdorf, which, according to his cartographic representation, were in the old town on this side of the Gilgengraben and later Bundesstraße 22. In Hardt and Lohe he counted 4 houses each, in Forst 10. An official cartographic representation was made in the original cadastre from 1851/52. The house number counting of Margrave Christian Friedrich Carl Alexander , last Margrave in Bayreuth, initiated in 1777 can also be seen in both works .
In 1831 there were 36 houses and 430 inhabitants in the village. The number of properties is probably too low and also contradicts the counting of Reiches, which is probably due to the non-consideration of inheritance divisions and the residences of many families in the two castles of St. Gilgenberg and Schloßhof.
In 1833, according to the parish description , Eckersdorf had 75 houses with 125 families, Forst 10 houses with 13 families, Hardt 5 houses with 5 families and Lohe 4 houses with 5 families. At the time the original cadastre was drawn up , there were already 80 houses. The number of houses and residents increased over the next few decades due to the expansion. Settlement took place in Kanzleistraße, along today's B 22 and in the center of the village.
Eckersdorf had the greatest increase in population after the Second World War. Refugees and displaced persons from eastern parts of the former Germany established living and working places in the 1950s and formed the basis for z. B. the settlement Blauer Hügel between the hamlet of Hardt and the main town.
In 1873, Erhard Schoberth founded the Eckersdorf volunteer fire brigade, which now (as of May 2020) has an emergency fire fighting group vehicle, a portable pump vehicle and a multi-purpose vehicle. The fire brigade is stationed together with the Donndorf fire brigade on the federal road.
Social history in the 19th century
The Eckersdorf community at the beginning of the 19th century
With the community edict of 1818, a new departure began for Eckersdorf. Now there was an elected community committee, consisting of the mayor, an assessor as his deputy and several community representatives. The election was subject to civil rights; women, men without possessions and offenders were excluded from voting. Age of majority, gainful employment, tax assessment, permanent residence and until 1869 real estate or a trade were the prerequisites for acquiring citizenship - thus many parts of the population were excluded from political participation. Since the municipality was able to object to the marriage of someone entitled to a homeland in the municipality , this also explains the high number of illegitimate children in the 19th century. The Eckersdorf community and many of its residents were more of the notoriously poor at this time. The industrialization of the nearby city of Bayreuth had created jobs. However, these were not well paid, so that the workers who moved there were among the losers of this social restructuring.
The disputes between Donndorf and Eckersdorf
In the 19th and early 20th centuries in particular, there was reports of pronounced hostility between the two neighboring villages of Donndorf and Eckersdorf. It is probably mainly due to the church-administered school system. In the parish one was united, but in the church interior in St. Giles the seats were divided according to the villages through the aisle. The Donndorfer and Oberpreuschwitzer sat on the left, the Eckersdorfer sat on the right. This separation also reflects the school structure. In 1881 the old Eckersdorfer school was built on what is now Kanzleistraße. It was expanded in the early 1930s. The eponymous community chancellery was also housed there. The citizens of Forst applied to be allowed to send their children to school in Eckersdorf in order to save the longer trip to Oberpreuschwitz, as politically they belonged to Eckersdorf.
A highlight of these disputes was the official resolution of the Ministry of the Interior in 1869 to merge the communities of Donndorf, Eckersdorf and Meyernberg into one mayor's office, which failed due to the will or unwillingness of the population. Even when the municipalities were amalgamated in the course of the regional reform in 1978, there was heated argument about what the municipality should be called in future.
The construction of a new association school in 1966 in today's Schulstrasse and the merger of Eckersdorf with Donndorf, Busbach and Neustädtlein in 1978 as well as the settlement-like merging of Donndorf with Eckersdorf contributed to calming the dispute.
Expansion in the 19th century
The Eckersdorfer were popularly referred to as "stone wasps". The term probably served folk etymology to differentiate it from the Hummelgau. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, many of Eckersdorf's residents worked as stone crushers. The Rhaetian sandstone found in the main town was mined and used primarily as building material in Bayreuth and the surrounding villages. The exploited quarries along today's B 22 were used as settlement areas at the beginning of the 19th century. The former stone crusher huts have been converted into residential houses and partly into agricultural properties. The district of Brunnenwiese was created. At that time, this district was also known as Neudorf. Both names still unofficially exist in the vernacular.
In 1852 there were 81 properties and houses with house numbers, including a mill, the Protestant church of St. Giles, the school and residence of the teacher and cantor next to the church (now known as the cantor's council), a brewery with an inn not far from the church and seven residential buildings and properties in the Neudorf district. The two former castles of St. Gilgenberg and the courtyard had already been converted into residential buildings.
Hallway, house and place names
In the Rhätsandstein Gorge Salamandertal there were a lot of eponymous fire salamanders until a few years ago . The name of an inn that was operated until the 1990s was derived from this.
Not far from a sports facility with tennis courts is the so-called Zieglerswiese. The stream that cut through it was dammed in autumn until the constant water supply was provided by a water pipe. If ice had formed in winter, the brewery used it to extract blocks of ice that were used to cool the beer in the beer cellar. The name Zieglerswiese is derived from the earlier land-shaping exploitation of the meadow by a brickworks in Donndorf that was active until the 19th century. Loam and clay were also dug in other places in Eckersdorf. z. B. at the foot of the Blue Hill south of the Eckersdorfer town center. The eponymous blue clay was z. B. used to build tiled stoves.
The so-called Badersplatz is located between the Schloßhof, Kirchberg and Eckehartstraße. From the 20th century, the term Bader was mainly used for the profession of hairdresser, but there are references to an older origin. The two aristocratic residences St. Gilgen and Schloßhof each owned half a bathing room in the 16th and 17th centuries. The widow of a Bader Sündenhauf lived there in 1852 in house number 39 (today Kirchberg 1). The house name Wasser-Gräf, house number 36 (today Kirchberg 5), which was in use until the early 20th century, could also be a reference to the bathing room.
Something from Mühlweiher the Ecker Mühle, house number 33 was first documented in 1499, she was in Landbuch C . The names of the stream and the nearby Mühlbrünnlein spring also come from her. In 1956 it was demolished. Today only foundations and a millstone built into the wall on the opposite side of the street bear witness to its existence. The descendants of the last miller, Schoberth, were referred to with the addition of Mühl- even if they had other professions.
The family names Popp, Holl, Gräf and Roß were very common in Eckersdorf in the 19th century. House names after an ancestor were used to differentiate, for example. The descendants of Nikolaus Holl (house name Klosn) lived in houses number 12 and 14 (today Eckehartstrasse 11 and 13) and Hardt 4. The house names were passed down into the 20th century - partly through field names.
Other families were differentiated according to their place of residence, e.g. B. by adding the name village to distinguish them from their relatives in the outlying areas. The addition to the name of a profession, e.g. B. Bäckn, Schmied or Webers, served to differentiate families and lasted into the 21st century.
In the period from 1988 to 2018, the municipality grew from 4,860 to 5,101 by 241 inhabitants or 5%. The peak was reached on December 31, 2012 with 5182 inhabitants.
The former administrative director Sybille Pichl ( Free Voting Association ) was elected mayor on May 9, 2010 with a result of 54.7% of the vote. The opponent Manfred Präcklein ( SPD ) achieved 45.3% in the runoff election. Deputies are Winfried Parchent (CSU) and Wolfgang Haida (SPD). Pichl's predecessor was Klaus Hümmer (Free Association of Voters).
In 2014 she was re-elected. Claus-Dieter Vogel (CSU) competed against them. At the constituent meeting, Wolfgang Haida (SPD) became second mayor, and Norbert Dörfler (FWG) became third.
In the mayoral election on March 15, 2020, Sybille Pichl (FWG) was re-elected with 62.68% of the vote. Christian Parchent (CSU / Open List) received 35.25% and Michael Terwart (AfD) 2.07% of the vote.
The municipal council has 20 members:
|CSU / Open List||7th||6th||7th|

badges and flags
The Eckersdorf community has had a coat of arms since 1979.
Blazon : “Under a blue shield head , inside a striding, looking lion, quartered ; 1 and 4: red, 2 and 3: a blue pole in silver. "
Blue and yellow municipal flag
|Justification of the coat of arms: The community coat of arms combines elements from the coats of arms of noble families that were important for the development of the community (see #History ). The looking lion comes from the coat of arms of the Andechs-Meranians . The crossing of the shield indicates the Margraviate of Bayreuth, with the color black being replaced with the color red from the coat of arms of the Lords of Plassenberg . The blue pole in the silver field is taken from the coat of arms of the Lords of Lüchau .|
The community has been a member of the association for regional development “Around the Neubürg - Franconian Switzerland e. V. "
Culture and sights
- Duchess Elisabeth Friederike Sophie von Brandenburg-Bayreuth had the Fantaisie Palace in the Donndorf district built by Johann Jakob Spindler between 1758 and 1765 . It houses the Spindler cabinet, an inlay work by the brothers Johann Friedrich and Heinrich Wilhelm Spindler , in a faithful replica . The original is located in the Bavarian National Museum in Munich .
- The listed town hall in the Donndorf district dates from 1830 .
- The Siegesturm, a listed lookout tower to commemorate the war against France in 1870/1871, stands in violin wood east of the Eckersdorf forest cemetery with a view of Fantaisie Castle.
- In the Neustädtlein am Forst part of the municipality there is a former castle of Margrave Georg Wilhelm von Bayreuth.
- The Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. Aegidius in Eckersdorf dates from 1791 in its current form with the high, pointed tower. The sacristy at the east end of the church is much older (11th century) and was originally dedicated to St. Kilian as a chapel . Until the redesign in 1695, the Kilian's Chapel served as the sanctuary of the previous building. Some of the medieval frescoes in the chapel have been preserved. The previous building of today's church dates from 1695 and was extended by a few meters with the renovation in 1791. This also explains the noticeable proximity to the cantor's council.
The palace houses a museum for garden art, which is operated by the Bavarian administration of the state palaces, gardens and lakes and shows numerous sculptures and paintings of German garden art. The three most important styles of German garden art can be found in the 200-hectare palace park. The oldest part of the complex dates back to 1763.

There is a lively club life in the community with over 60 clubs.
When it was founded as a castle settlement, there were probably various sources in the Rhätsandstein gorge Salamander valley in the middle of the village for drinking water supply. During the expansion of the town along Eckehartstraße, wells were mainly used that had to be drilled 10 to 20 m deep. This remained the only water supply until the early 20th century.
In 1836 a big fire raged in Eckersdorf, triggered by a hot brick in a pigsty. Several houses and barns around the rectory fell victim to him. In addition to the distant Mühlweiher, only a small extinguishing water pond , called Hül , was available for extinguishing water supply. This was located in the middle of Dorfstrasse between the current buildings at Eckehartstrasse 28 and Schloßhof 4. It was not until the 1840s that today's rectory was rebuilt in the gardener's style. In order to be able to fight future fires more quickly, the volunteer fire brigade was founded in 1873 .
From the 1920s, a stable central water supply was set up by a water pipe fed by the spring in the Hardt district. Until then, most of the houses were still supplied by draw wells. The owners of the Schoberth and Heil breweries were particularly interested in the water pipe because they were particularly dependent on constant water quality. The multi-year construction began in 1925.
In 1995 the waterworks, supplied by several deep boreholes, was built.
In 1873 Erhard Schoberth founded the Eckersdorf volunteer fire brigade, which (as of May 2020) has an emergency fire fighting group vehicle, a portable pump vehicle and a multi-purpose vehicle. After several moves, it is stationed on the federal road in the same building as the Donndorf fire brigade.
The federal road 22 leads via Donndorf and Meyerndorf to Bayreuth (5.5 km east) or via Eschen , Busbach and Schönfeld to Hollfeld (15 km west). The district road BT 14 / BTs 14 leads via Dörnhof and Tannenbach to Heinersreuth to the federal road 85 (5 km northeast). Communal roads lead to Lohe (0.4 km southwest) and Hardt (0.7 km southeast).
