The Zollhof in Pfaffenberg

The history of Mallersdorf probably goes back to Roman times , as the first castle , which gave the place "Madilhardisdorf" its name, is said to have been built on the remains of a Roman fort . This castle was owned by Mathilde von Lupburg , the 9th abbess of the Niedermünster monastery in Regensburg , who owned extensive goods here and from whose name “Mallersdorf” is ultimately derived.

Mallersdorf belonged to the Gaugrafschaft Kirchberg during the Carolingian era . The Counts Heinrich and Ernst founded a monastery here in 1107, which, with the confirmation of the donation by the later Emperor Lothar III. , Is mentioned for the first time in 1129.

The Latin school run by Benedictine monks in the Mallersdorf monastery on the Johannisberg, which can be traced there from 1109 to 1803, enjoyed an excellent reputation. The important library was also the reason for Mallersdorf's national importance in the scientific field. The honorary title "sedes sapientiae" (seat of wisdom) attests to this position.

In the course of secularization , the monastery was converted into an agricultural enterprise with a brewery ; the library and valuable sacred objects were brought to Munich. A revival learned the monastery in 1869 as there, the Franciscans - the Order of the Mallersdorf sisters set up his mother's house. ( See also: Franciscan Orders )

After secularization, Mallersdorf received a regional court in 1840 , from which the district office , the notary's office and later the district court emerged in 1862 . In addition, there was a rent office in Mallersdorf . The place had become a district seat.


The history of the place Pfaffenberg goes back to the 12th century. In a letter of protection from Pope Eugene III. the place is mentioned in writing for the first time.


On April 1, 1971, the previously independent communities of Ascholtshausen, Holztraubach, Oberellenbach and Oberlindhart were incorporated into the community of Pfaffenberg. On July 1, 1972, the merger with Mallersdorf took place to form the new municipality (market) Mallersdorf-Pfaffenberg. The communities Niederlindhart, Oberhaselbach and Upfkofen were added on January 1, 1978.

court House

On July 1, 1972 Mallersdorf lost the seat of the district office and was reclassified to the district of Straubing-Bogen . The community was one of the few main district cakes in Germany that, as the seat of a district administration, had no city rights.
