HISTORY AND MODERN LIVE
The origins of Sommersdorf are obscure. Early in the 13th century, a noble family named de Sunnemannesdorf settled here and presumably gave the village its name.
The castle is rich in history, and was built in the late 14th century by Ludwig von Eyb. His grandson Albrecht von Eyb, born at 1420 at Sommersdorf, became Germany’s first humanistic writer.
