In 1723 a Capuchin's monastery was donated in G÷▀weinstein. It was converted in 1828 into a Franciscan's monastery.
With the resolution of the Hochstift Bamberg at beginning of the 19th century, G÷▀weinstein was annexed to the kingdom Bavaria. The church to the "Heilige Dreifaltigkeit" is dominating far away in G÷▀weinstein. It is a work of the famous baroque master builder Balthasar Neumann.
Possibly around 1240 the first parish church was built in G÷▀weinstein. Still today numerous believers make a yearly pilgrimage to G÷▀weinstein. The small town counts as the most significant Trinity-place of pilgrimage in Germany.
