Pfordt is a district of Schlitz in the Vogelsbergkreis in central Hesse .


The place is southeast of Schlitz an der Fulda . State road 3143 runs southwest of the village .


The oldest surviving mention of the village comes from 852, then under the place name Porta .

The current church was built in 1615 in place of the pre-Reformation building. The church tower was added in 1894 .

Pfordt belonged to the Schlitz rule . Here, the Schlitzer ordinances from the 18th century, together with parts of the Fulda law, were considered particular law . The Common Law applied only to the extent these special regulations did not contain provisions for a fact. This special right retained its validity during the affiliation to the Grand Duchy of Hesse in the 19th century. In judicial practice, however, the ordinances were only rarely applied. The particular law was replaced on January 1, 1900 by the civil code that was uniformly valid throughout the German Empire .

On December 31, 1971, Pfordt was incorporated into the town of Schlitz as part of the regional reform in Hesse .


The mayor is Herbert Schlosser (as of March 2018) .


There are two recreational lakes in the vicinity . The Fulda Cycle Path , the BahnRadweg Hessen and D-Route 9 (Weser-Romantic Road) run along the river .
