Community structure

The municipality has eight officially named municipality parts (the type of settlement is indicated in brackets ):


The Rednitz flows through Rednitzhembach , into which the Hembach flows as a right tributary and the Mainbach flows from the left . Furthermore, the Rednitz on the north-eastern edge of the district of Plöckendorf receives the treated wastewater from the Rednitzhembach sewage treatment plant as a receiving water . The Rednitzhembach municipality is bordered to the east by the Main-Danube Canal , kilometers 81 to 83 west.


First settlement

Already around the year 1000 BC Christ there was an Urnfield settlement in today's Untermainbach district. The Natural History Society of Nuremberg (NHG) found this out during excavations in the 1930s and 1970s. During these excavations, three very well-preserved spectacle spirals and a bronze ax were found in the Untermainbach district.

Modern times

Towards the end of the 18th century there were 31 properties in Rednitzhembach, as well as a parish church and a community shepherd's house. The high court and the village and community rulership exercised the Brandenburg-Ansbach judge office Schwand . The landlords were the Schwand judge's office (1 one and a half courtyard with tavern , 1 whole courtyard, 2 tavern wholesalers, 2 two-thirds courtyards, 2 half courtyards, 1 estate with forge, 5 estates, 3 empty cones , 8 empty houses, 1 house, 1 grinding and sawmill) and the Nuremberg owner von Behaim (1 half-yard with tavern, 1 empty house, 1 half empty house, 1 house).


On January 1, 1972, the previously independent municipality of Walpersdorf was incorporated.


City council and mayor

The Rednitzhembach municipal council has 20 seats, the distribution of which is decided in the local elections. The last local election took place on March 15, 2020. The turnout here was 60.5%.

The first mayor has been Jürgen Spahl, who has not been party to any party (with 87.6% in office in 2020), who has consolidated the municipality's finances and has made the municipality debt-free since 2003. This goal was u. a. achieved through the establishment of the Rednitzhembach GmbH Municipal Works, which took on part of the municipal tasks (e.g. water supply and sewage disposal, cemetery management).

badges and flags

The Rednitzhembach community has had a coat of arms since 1975.

Rednitzhembach coat of arms
Blazon : Divided ; Above in black a growing silver mill wheel above, split belowby silver and red with an applied blue wave bar . "

White-blue-white municipal flag

Foundation of the coat of arms: The location of the community on the Rednitz is represented by the wave beam, the importance of the Rednitzhembach mills by the stylized half mill wheel. In the village, the Nuremberg patricians Zollner von Brand and subsequently (from 1603) the Behaim von Schwarzbach were wealthy, whose coat of arms (silver-red split) was therefore taken over into the municipal coat of arms, which through the colors white-black on the relationship with Brandenburg- Ansbach points out.
