|Location of the local community of Gondorf in the Eifel district of Bitburg-Prüm|
The local community is located in the southwest Eifel about 5 km east of the district town of Bitburg . The municipal area extends between the Kyll and the B 50 and is surrounded by a natural wall that mitigates the cold north and east winds. It covers an area of 376 ha, 55% of which, thus the majority, is used for agriculture and 6% is an extremely small proportion of forest. The Lingenhof residential area also belongs to Gondorf .
A Franconian burial ground and ceramic finds from the 2nd and 3rd centuries indicate an early settlement of the community area.
The first documentary mention as "Guendurf" comes from the year 1226. The place name ending "-dorf" can be traced back to the time of the conquest from the 8th century. Until the French occupied the area at the end of the 18th century, the place belonged partly to the provost of Bitburg and partly to the rule of Dudeldorf in the Duchy of Luxembourg . The local community has been part of the Bitburg-Land association since 1970.
The development of the population of Gondorf, the values from 1871 to 1987 are based on censuses:
The council in Gondorf consists of six council members, who in the local elections on May 26, 2019 in a majority vote were elected, and the honorary mayor as chairman. Until 2009, the council had eight council members.
coat of arms
|Justification for the coat of arms: The colors red and silver represent belonging to the Archdiocese of Trier, while the red pointed foot indicates that it belongs to the Luxembourg provost office of Bitburg. The three golden crowns in the head of the shield symbolize the three kings as the original patrons of the church.|
Economy and Infrastructure
Today Gondorf is an agricultural as well as a tourist community. A striking feature is the Eifelpark , opened in 1964 , a zoo and leisure park that takes up large parts of the Gondorf district and brings numerous visitors to the place. The town also has two hotels and a number of holiday apartments that has increased in recent years. Outside of tourism, there are still smaller handicrafts and three main agricultural businesses, so that, in contrast to most of the Eifel towns, the community has a rather strong economic structure. Nevertheless, most of the employees commute to the surrounding cities, including the district town of Bitburg .
