    Middle of the 8th century
    Silver jewelery rings, which were found as grave items in the former cemetery around the cathedral, refer to the middle of the eighth century and are the earliest evidence of a settlement. Saint Boniface founded the bishopric of Eichstätt in 743/45, which included Eschenbach on its north-western border.
    Mid-10th century
    Archaeological excavations in the cathedral prove that there is a small stone hall church, which in turn replaces an older wooden church.
    Mid-12th century
    A second stone hall church is being built, which reaches the considerable length of over 40 meters.
    1189/90
    Merchants from Lübeck and Bremen found a hospital community during the Third Crusade in the Holy Land, which in 1198 was elevated by the pope to a knightly order and called itself "German Order". This will soon determine the fortunes in Eschenbach.
    1200-1217
    Verifiable creative period of Wolfram von Eschenbach. The epics are "Parzival", "Willehalm", "Titurel" and a few days and advertising songs. Site and personal names in the work indicate the local Eschenbach as the place of origin of the poet.
    around 1212/20
    Count Poppo von Wertheim transfers the church patronage in Eschenbach to the Teutonic Order. Wolfram von Eschenbach characterizes the Count von Wertheim in "Parzival" as a "gentleman" who loves the good life.
