Our hometown at the foot of the Julius-Echter-Berg


The small wine town of Iphofen was first mentioned in a document in 741 AD. Its history began as a Franconian royal court, a farm whose yields accrued to the newly founded diocese of Würzburg. Iphofen was situated on the important route from Frankfurt via Würzburg and Fürth to Regensburg. The old royal road is still the axis which the B8 or the ICE railway from Frankfurt to Nuremberg run along.
