About this picture

Schönborn in the northern Pfalz is a municipality in the Donnersbergkreis in Rheinland-Pfalz . It belongs to the Nordpfälzer Land association.


The place is located in the North Palatinate Uplands west of the Donnersberg between Kaiserslautern and Bad Kreuznach .


Until the end of the 18th century, Schönborn belonged to the Reipoltskirchen rulership , which was directly owned by the empire and was ultimately jointly owned by the Princes of Isenburg-Büdingen and the Counts of Hillesheim .

After 1792 the region was occupied by French troops in the First Revolutionary War and annexed after the Peace of Campo Formio (1797) . From 1798 to 1814 Schönborn belonged to the French department of Donnersberg and was assigned to the canton of Rockenhausen . Due to the agreements reached at the Congress of Vienna (1815) and an exchange contract with Austria , the region became part of the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1816 . From 1818 the community of Schönborn was assigned to the Kirchheim regional commissioner in the Bavarian Rhine District, later to the Kirchheimbolanden district office, from which the Kirchheimbolanden district emerged in 1938 .

After the Second World War , Schönborn became part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate within the French occupation zone and belonged to the administrative district of Palatinate until 1968 . Since 1969 the community belongs to the Donnersbergkreis .
