Until the church is planted

The foundation goes back to the year 787. During the time of the tribal duchies the place was in the Duchy of Franconia . In 1434, Emperor Sigismund gave Eibelstadt town charter after Eibelstädter citizens had successfully supported it in the war against the Hussites . The former winery of the Würzburg cathedral chapter of the Würzburg bishopric was, after the secularization in 1803 in favor of Bavaria, left to Archduke Ferdinand of Tuscany to form the Grand Duchy in 1805 and with this in 1814 it finally fell to Bavaria . In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria, today's municipality was created with the municipal edict of 1818 .

coat of arms

Coat of arms of Eibelstadt
Blazon : "In gold, a half, gold-crowned and red-armored black lion holding a round, curved green vine with leaves and a blue grape in its paws, open to the left."
Foundation of the coat of arms: The former imperial fief Eibelstadt belonged to the Würzburg monastery since 1096. The rule of Eibelstadt was divided between the Würzburg Dompropstei and the Würzburg Cathedral Chapter until the end of the old empire in 1803. In 1434, Emperor Sigismund granted the place city rights and a city coat of arms. The grapevine in the coat of arms stands for viticulture, which is still the main livelihood of the inhabitants. The city coat of arms is the oldest in Bavaria and features a wine motif. The lion goes back to the Bohemian lion because Emperor Sigismund comes from Bohemia. The coat of arms has hardly changed since it was awarded. From 1820 the lion was misinterpreted as a griffin for some time. The colors were unsure for a long time. Even in the 1920s, a red crowned and red armored half black lion was depicted in silver within a round, curved, green vine with two golden grapes, opened to the right (Hupp). The now valid coat of arms was established in 1987.

Coat of arms since July 3, 1434 and in the current representation since August 7, 1987.

  • Baroque office building of the Würzburg cathedral chapter. The town hall is decorated with a stucco ceiling from the time it was built. The little wine and tax bell from the 14th century in the roof tower is a reminder of the old form of tax collection. The Marian column in front of the Eibelstädter Town Hall was sculpted in the 17th century by Gregor Diemeneck, who also worked in Würzburg, with a statue of the Virgin according to the old statue scheme.
  • Parish Church of St. Nicholas. The church holds numerous treasures: such as a crucifixion group from Tilman Riemenschneider's workshop around 1505 and various late Gothic figures.
