Heiligenstadt in Oberfanken
Favorite thing: Heiligenstadt in Oberfranken is a community with market rights in the Upper Franconian district not far from Bamberg.
Heiligenstadt is located in the Naturpark Fränkische Schweiz-Veldensteiner Forst (nature park) and considered as one of the most interesting places in the Leinleiter Valley.
The community’s villages arose about a thousand years ago. Heiligenstadt itself already existed before the Bishopric of Bamberg was founded in 1007.
In the Leinleiter Valley were lordly seats of the Knights of Streitberg. In 1525, the peasants revolted and inflicted heavy damage upon the castles. In 1541, the Emperor granted Heiligenstadt market privilege.
