    Gemünden is a small, cozy town. A trip to the Scherenburg is worthwhile.

  • Gemünden am Main (officially: Gemünden a.Main) is a town in the Lower Franconian district of Main-Spessart and a state-approved resort. According to the Bavarian state development program, Gemünden am Main is designated as a medium-sized center.Story:
    The place was first mentioned in 1243 in a contract between the Würzburg bishop Hermann I von Lobdeburg and Countess Adelheid von Rieneck. However, it is assumed that Gemünden had already been elevated to the status of a town by the Counts of Rieneck before 1243. The local tradition assumes a fishing settlement, which was the origin of the later city. In 1317, Count Ludwig von Rieneck († 1333) received from Bishop Gottfried III. from Hohenlohe the town and the castle of Gemünden. Gemünden was the seat of the Gemünden office. From 1469, Gemünden finally belonged to the Bishopric of Würzburg. From 1500 the Würzburg Bishopric was part of the Franconian imperial circle. Prince Bishop Rudolf II von Scherenberg built it as a bastion against the neighboring territories of Kurmainz and Hochstift Fulda. In 1641, the army of Jean Baptiste Budes de Guébriant, partially plundering and robbing as far as the gates of Würzburg, stood near Gemünden. As a result of the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss in 1803, the Prince-Bishopric of Würzburg was annexed by Bavaria. Gemünden became a Bavarian district town.
    The local Schönau monastery was founded in 1189 by Philipp von Thüngen. A Minorite monastery since 1699, the monks mainly look after the monastery and pilgrimage church.
    In the course of administrative reforms in Bavaria, today's municipality came into being with the municipal edict of 1818.
