Keblice (German Keblitz , older also Geblitz , Kobelitz , Koblitz ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic. It is located six kilometers south-east of Lovosice on the D8 motorway and belongs to the Okres Litoměřice .


The village is located at the foot of the Dubina table, a southern foothill of the Bohemian Central Mountains in the Eger river plain . To the west rises the 245 m high Humenský vrch ( Hahnberg ), on the west flank of which the highway route passes. The next exit Lovosice-východ is one and a half kilometers to the northwest. On the other side of the motorway, on Humenský vrch, are the remains of the Windsor hunting lodge.

Neighboring towns are Lukavec and Nové Kopisty in the north, Terezín and Bohušovice nad Ohří in the northeast, Brňany in the east, Brozany nad Ohří and Rochov in the southeast, Zadní Ves and Vrbičany in the south, Siřejovice in the west and Sulejovice in the northwest.


Keblice was mentioned for the first time in 1249 in a sales deed by Wenceslas I , who removed the place from the ownership of the Osek monastery and sold it to Johann Herbert from Leitmeritz . From that time until 1848 the village was owned by the citizens of Leitmeritz. After 1550, vineyards were laid out on the slope of the Dubina table to the Egertal and the village became a wine-growing place. During the Thirty Years War the place was devastated several times.

A curiosity is the time after the abolition of patrimonial rule. From 1848 there were no large estates in Keblice and all corridors were owned by the local farmers. In 1870 the Jagdschlösschen Windsor was built on Hahnberg from the Dutch windmill, which has been documented since 1833 . In the years that followed, the owners of the Tschischkowitz estate acquired all of the land from the farmers. In 1880 about 400 people lived in the village. By 1920 the population grew to 750, of which the Czechs formed the majority. The basis of life was agriculture, with root crops and grain dominating. In addition, some of the residents worked in the Tschischkowitz brickworks. During this time the village was one of the most beautiful places in the district. After the Second World War, the large Čížkovic property was expropriated and divided up again. The hunting lodge fell into ruin.
