Damian Hugo von Schönborn

In 1971, two previous towns Bad Langenbrücken and Bad Mingolsheim were combined, and the town was named Bad Schönborn after Damian Hugo von Schönborn, archbishop of Speyer (1719–1743), who built Kislau Castle in Bad Mingolsheim.[2]

Archbishop Franz Christoph von Hutten founded the sulphur spa in Bad Langenbrücken in 1766.

A famous citizen is the minister of the interior of Baden-Württemberg parliament Heribert Rech, and the singer Joana Emetz.

The Battle of Mingolsheim took place near Mingolsheim during the Thirty Years' War on April 27, 1622.
