    The castle ruins Stollburg is the ruin of a mountain castle at 442.9 meters on the 476 meter high Stollberg, Franconia's highest vineyard, on the district Handthal, district of the market Oberschwarzach in the Lower Franconian district Schweinfurt in Bavaria.Presumably, the castle was built in the 12th century by the Lords of Stollberg, and came in 1151 as a gift from the Bishopric of Würzburg to the monastery Ebrach.According to the thesis of the home historian Gerhard Wagner, the minnesinger Walther von der Vogelweide was born around 1170 at the Stollburg. [2] [3]During a feud with the Würzburg Bishop Hermann von Lobdeburg in 1236 Ludwig von Stollberg was killed by Würzburg riders, the castle came in 1237 to the Bishopric of Würzburg and 1303 seat of a Würzburg bailiff.On May 2, 1525, the castle was destroyed in the Peasants' War and burned down, while the bailiff, Count of Castell, was called to Würzburg to defend the fortress Marienberg against the rebellious peasants.Reference and further information: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burgruine_Stollburg
