Seal of King Conrad II (990-1039)

The place was first mentioned in a document on May 6, 1025 as "Megelendorf" and is therefore older than Nuremberg itself. The place was initially a fortified farm on a Pegnitzfurt, through which several old streets led. It served King Conrad II as a branch of his court. On his travels from Regensburg to Bamberg, the ruler "notarized" in Mögeldorf in 1025 and 1030. 1200 appears for the first time as a high-ranking Reich Ministerial Reimarus of "Meglindorf", probably from the Laufamholzer family (see Unterbürg ); in 1213 he held the office of Nuremberg groom. The royal court and imperial ministerial seat are presumed to be in the area of ​​the Mögeldorfer Kirchhof and the neighboring Hallerschloss to the west. In the course of the late Middle Ages and early modern times, a total of seven mansions were built in the village, some of them from families of the Nuremberg patriciate , five of which have survived. In addition to Erlenstegen, Mögeldorf had the highest density of stately homes in the old Nuremberg countryside.

In addition to farmers and the usual craftsmen, several stone cutters who worked in the nearby quarries settled down later . In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance , several Nuremberg patrician families built country estates here on the Kirchenberg, idyllically situated above the Pegnitz, some of which are still preserved today. In 1561 a paper mill was built, which later became the art mill of the Satzinger family.

At the end of the 18th century there were 63 properties in Mögeldorf. The high court exercised the imperial city of Nuremberg , but this was contested by the Brandenburg-Ansbach Oberamt Schwabach and the Brandenburg-Bayreuth Vogtamt Schönberg . The Landpflegamt Nürnberg was in charge of the village and community . The landlords were the Vogtamt Schönberg (1 farm, 2 half farms, 1 estate, 7 farms, 1 house, 1 game management); the imperial city of Nuremberg: Landpflegamt (church, rectory, schoolhouse, parish servant's apartment, shepherd's house, fire house), Laurenzi forest office (1 courtyard, 10 houses); Nuremberg owners: von Ebner (1 house), von Fürer (3 houses), von Haller (2 Gütlein), von Holzschuher (1 manor, 1 half-yard, 2 estates, 1 Gütlein, 1 house), von Imhoff (1 manor, 3 Houses), vonöffelholz (2 mansions, 1 estate, 1 estate, 3 houses), von Petz (1 yard, 1 half yard), von Scheidlin (1 estate, 1 estate, 1 estate, 1 house), von Tucher (2 estate ); Freiherr von Egloffstein (2 half yards, 1 little farm).

"Megeldorf" in the 19th century

As part of the municipal edict, the Mögeldorf tax district was formed in 1808 , to which Schmausenbuck , Valznerweiher and Zerzabelshof belonged. In the same year the rural community Mögeldorf was formed, which was congruent with the tax district. In administration and jurisdiction it was subordinate to the Regional Court of Nuremberg and in financial administration to the Fürth Rent Office . In voluntary jurisdiction, 4 properties from 1825 to 1835 were subject to the Patrimonial Court (PG) Gibitzenhof , 2 properties until 1823 to the PG Großgründlach , 3 properties from 1822 to 1836 to the PG Haimendorf , 3 properties from 1820 to 1848 to the PG Kornburg , 2 properties from 1822 until 1835 the PG Lohe and Behringersdorf and 1 property until 1812 and from 1820 to 1848 the PG Lichtenhof . After 1818, but before 1840, Zerzabelshof split up with Valznerweiher and formed its own rural community. Rehhof was founded in the second half of the 19th century in the municipality of Mögeldorf. From 1862 Mögeldorf was administered by the Nuremberg District Office . Jurisdiction has been with the Nuremberg District Court since 1880 . The financial management was taken over in 1871 by the Nuremberg Rent Office ( renamed the Nuremberg Tax Office in 1920 ). The municipality had an area of ​​3.675 km². On January 1, 1899 Mögeldorf was incorporated into Nuremberg .

In modern times, Mögeldorf has remained true to its tradition as an upscale residential area and, along with Erlenstegen on the opposite bank of the Pegnitz, is now one of the best residential areas in Nuremberg. The green Pegnitztal with the Wöhrder See, the nearby Reichswald and the Schmausenbuck with the zoo guarantee the high recreational value.

The place has been predominantly Protestant since the Reformation. The residents of the Evangelical Lutheran denomination are parish according to St. Nicholas and Ulrich , the residents of the Roman Catholic denomination are parish according to St. Karl Borromeo .


The Gothic church of St. Nikolaus and Ulrich and the Protestant parish church of Mögeldorf, with the surrounding cemetery, are worth seeing . The Catholic parish church of St. Karl Borromeo , which was built in the Expressionism style in 1926/27 , is also a registered monument .

Five of the former seven mansions are still preserved. They belonged to wealthy Nuremberg bourgeois families, some of them patricians , and often changed hands:

  • The "Hallerschloss" (Kirchenberg 7–11) is a residential tower with slotted windows from the 13th / 14th centuries in the southwestern part . Century, which was extended to the east in the early modern period and topped with half-timbered buildings around 1500. At the end of the 17th century, the tall building lost its hipped roof and received a gable roof and half-timbered gable windows. In the 13th century, the Zollerischen burgraves of Nuremberg ousted the former Reichsministeriale von Lauffenholtz (Laufamholz) and claimed the rights to the small castle on the former Könisghof. However, the Laufamholzers retained feudal rights in Mögeldorf until they died out in 1568. In the second half of the 15th century, Hans Tetzel acquired the seat; In 1482 he had to undertake to sell the dwelling in Mögeldorf, which he “erect and pau” in agreement with the Nuremberg council, “and the ytzo in the paw stee” , in future only to the citizens of Nuremberg, because the council does not offer an open house for the Hohenzollern family wanted to have the gates of the city. The Feste Haus then came to Augsburg entrepreneurs Anton and Lukas Grander in 1515, presumably as a trading establishment outside the imperial city, from whom Hieronymus Rehlinger , also an Augsburg entrepreneur, acquired it. He sold it in 1555 to Wolf VIII. Haller von Hallerstein , Reichspfennigmeister of Emperor Charles V (1492–1559) and thus to a Nuremberg patrician family. In 1666 it fell to the Altdorf nurse Georg Andreas Imhoff , whose family kept it for 140 years.
  • In 1691, the "Imhoff building" was converted from a barn in the Hallerschloss to a second residential building, which was only separated from the Hallerschloss in 1857.
  • The "Baderschloss" (Mögeldorfer Hauptstraße 55) was first built in 1579 and then again from 1612. A renovation from 1795 under the Imhoff characterizes today's appearance. It got its name from the Bader Eberhard Leopold, who bought it in 1810.
  • The "Schmausenschloss" (Ziegenstrasse 12-20) is named after the red beer brewer Georg Schmaus, who acquired the property in 1667 and built a new one instead of an older one. Only his daughter Anna Susanne had a new manor house and a magnificent baroque garden built some distance away in 1682, to which a coach house was added in 1692.
  • The "Cnopfsche or Lincksche Schloss" (Ziegenstrasse 3–5) emerged from a farm in the early 16th century. In the 17th and early 18th centuries it was rebuilt several times and modernized in a historicizing way from 1878 to around 1880, whereby it received the characteristic wooden corner turrets and dormers. To the north there is a defensive wall set on the steep slope with the remains of a battlement. It got its name from the pharmacist Johann Jakob Christoph Cnopf, who bought it in 1788 and had it renovated, and from the manufacturer Carolus Linck, who bought it in 1936.
  • The "Lincksche Haus" (Schmausenbuckstraße 14) was founded around 1710 by Dr. Martin Linck (presumably from the Nuremberg family of lawyers) built as a small summer residence in a garden that was famous for its bitter orange grove as early as 1700 . The Gütle was under the lordship of the family Löffelholz and was probably granted as an inheritance loan. The building is now an inn.
  • The "Bremensitz" (Kinkelstrasse 2), built in 1574 by the merchant Anthony Brem, was replaced in 1916 by a multi-storey residential building.
  • The "Doctor castle" (Mögeldorfer main road 31-39), a three-storey Sandsteinquaderbau with corner towers, which dated back to the 14th century and owned by the Ebner and Holzschuher was, was canceled in 1972 to shortly before the entry into force of the Bavarian Monument Protection Act to build a to enable modern residential complex.

A walk down to the Pegnitz Valley, past the Satzinger mill (named after Michael Satzinger in 1869 ) and along the shores of Lake Wöhrder is also worthwhile . There is a nature experience path with over 20 stations. A little south of Mögeldorf, in the neighboring district of Zerzabelshof, is the Nuremberg Zoo, one of the largest zoos in Germany. On the western edge of the district (towards downtown) is the Business Tower of Nuremberg .


Mögeldorf has a good local supply with a supermarket and numerous small shops and inns in the old town center.

Through the district of the starting of the ring road extends from West to East State Road 2241 (Nürnberg-Hiltpoltstein) as Ostend- and Laufamholzstraße that Mögeldorf with the A 3 at the junction Nürnberg-Mögeldorf connects. The Nürnberg-Mögeldorf station is located on the Nuremberg – Schwandorf railway line from east to west and is served exclusively by the S1 S-Bahn line . This takes you to the main train station in around six to seven minutes . Mögeldorf is served by tram line 5, which joins city ​​bus lines 40, 45 and 95 at the Mögeldorf stop (at the “Mögeldorfer Plärrer”) .
