Geographical location

Stadelschwarzach is located in the north of the Prichsenstadt municipality. To the north is only Järkendorf . In the northeast lies Neuses am Sand , in the east begins the district of Schweinfurt . Prichsenstadt occupies the southeast, foliage in the south. The municipality of Volkach begins with the district of Eichfeld in the north-west.

The next larger cities are Schweinfurt , with a distance of about 25 kilometers and Volkach with about 8 kilometers.

In terms of natural space, Stadelschwarzach and its area are part of the so-called Steigerwald foreland of Neuses . Characteristic for this part of the Iphofen-Gerolzhofener Steigerwaldvorland is the hilly appearance with the narrow river valleys and small streams. Several rivers flow through Stadelschwarzach z. B. the Schwarzach , the Schönbach and the Altbach .


The place was founded in the 8th century as part of the Frankish conquest . Stadelschwarzach was first mentioned in 918, when the village was called "Stadelon" when it was given to the Benedictine monastery in Münsterschwarzach. During the Middle Ages, the Counts of Castell ruled the village for a short time before it was finally assigned to the monastery in 1306. The monastery’s wine supplies were stored in Stadelschwarzach. With the secularization , the rule of Schwarzach ended in 1803.

In the 20th century, 1964, Stadelschwarzach received its own parish . In 1972 the place came to the large municipality of Prichsenstadt. The village was badly hit by the Fabienne storm on September 23, 2018. Among other things, the storm tore off the real helmet of the Bartholomäuskirche, the power supply was temporarily interrupted.

Culture and sights

The former town hall of the place

Architectural monuments

The Catholic parish church is dedicated to St. Bartholomew. The oldest element, the late Gothic tower, dates from the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries and is equipped with the so-called real helmet . In 1804 the nave and choir were added; these components correspond to classicism . In the second half of the 20th century, the furnishings were comprehensively renewed; the oldest pieces date from the 18th century.

The town hall next to the church was built in 1601. It ends with a half-timbered floor. A renaissance portal forms the entrance, a heraldic cartouche with the mark of the Munster black abbot Dominicus Otto was added in the 18th century. Several alleys have been preserved around the church, which formerly formed a fortified church.

The former administrative building of the monastery in the village dates from 1593 and is decorated with the coat of arms of the abbot Johannes IV. Burckhardt . A baroque portal bears another coat of arms. There are several small monuments, especially wayside shrines, in the village and in the area. There is a small war memorial chapel to the west of the town center .


Many years ago an unmarried man lived in Stadelschwarzach. He tried to supplement his low income by poaching in the forests in the area. One night he was caught red-handed by a forester . He fled and the forester shot the fugitive with his rifle. It hit the poacher in the heart. The villagers chopped up the ground in the shape of a cross on Schmiedsweg, where the poacher died. This is still practiced today with the annual corridor walk .

Economy and Infrastructure


Road traffic

Stadelschwarzach is now located on federal road 22 , which crosses the town from southwest to northeast. In addition, the district road KT 38 coming from Järkendorf ends in the village. It is consequently called Järkendorfer Straße in the village.

Kitzingen-Schweinfurt railway line

At the end of the 19th century, Stadelschwarzach was connected to the Bavarian railway network. In 1893 the Kitzingen- Gerolzhofen section of the so-called Steigerwaldbahn (also Lower Steigerwaldbahn) was completed, and Stadelschwarzach was equipped with a stop. The branch line connected from 1903 Kitzingen with the Schweinfurt Hauptbahnhof and was one of the longer branch lines in Germany.

Traffic on the route began to be reduced in the 1980s. In 1981 only passenger buses drove between Gerolzhofen and Kitzingen, freight traffic was given up in mid-2006. For a long time there have been initiatives to reactivate passenger traffic on the disused route. At the beginning of 2019 a fierce dispute broke out over the design of the restart, which has continued to this day, which became a political issue .
