Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg Things to Do: 8 reviews and 30 photos
The full name of the town is Bad Münster am Stein – Ebernburg. This dates back to a local government reform in 1970, when the two towns of Bad Münster am Stein and neighbour Ebernburg were unified. It is a bit of a historical speciality because Bad Münster belonged to Prussian land and Ebernburg was part of Bavarian Palatinate in the past, so despite being unified, the churches are not but belong to diocese Trier (Bad Münster) and Speyer (Ebernburg).
The castle which gave this part of town the name, had a prominent owner in the past: Franz von Sickingen, who played a major role in the Reformation. The castle was built mid 14th century, ransacked by Sun King Louis in 1689 and only restored as it is today after WW II. Today it belongs to the Protestant Ebernburg Association, which takes care of families’ holidays and education. And mid September it hosts the Medieval Market Ebernburg
