Stegaurach is a community in the Upper Franconian district of Bamberg and the seat of the administrative community (Verwaltungsgemeinschaft) of Stegaurach.


The community of Stegaurach lies in the valley of the Aurach, about 4 km west of Bamberg. Stegaurach lies in the Upper Franconia-West region.

Constituent communities[edit]

Stegaurach’s main and namesake centre is by far the biggest of its Ortsteile with a population of 4,033. The community furthermore has these outlying centres, each given here with its own population figure and dialectal name where there is one:

  • Debring (village) 484
  • Dellerhof (farm) 17
  • Dellern (farm) 32
  • Hartlanden (village) 410, locally “Hädländ”

  • Unteraurach (village) 256, locally “Ündäaurich”
  • Waizendorf (village) 505, locally “Waizndäff”

Stegaurach itself is known in the local speech as “Aurich”.

The community also has 5 traditional rural land units, known in German as Gemarkungen, named Hartlanden, Höfen, Mühlendorf, Stegaurach and Birkacher Wald, four of which (all but the last, which is a woodland) have the same names as four of the constituent communities (it is traditional for a Gemarkung to be named after a town or village lying nearby).


Stegaurach belonged to the High Monastery at Bamberg. Stegaurach was actually part of the hereditary estate administration, a great deal of which was nevertheless made up of the High Monastery’s property or its Mediaten. Since the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss of 1803, the community has belonged to Bavaria.
