About this picture

Aumühle [aʊ̯ˈmyːlə] is a municipality in the Duchy of Lauenburg in Schleswig-Holstein .


The community of Aumühle with the districts Aumühle, Billenkamp and Friedrichsruh is located about 20 kilometers east of Hamburg in the Sachsenwald , the largest forest area in Schleswig-Holstein, which is a local recreation area for the Hamburg metropolitan region .


Aumühle was first mentioned in a document in 1350 as "Au-Mühle" ("Owmole": mill on the Black Au ), in 1750 the Billenkamp peasantry was established.

The second half of the 19th century brought great changes. After the Sachsenwald was donated by Kaiser Wilhelm I to Otto von Bismarck in 1871 , he had a former inn on the railway line from Hamburg to Berlin converted into a mansion. Here, in Friedrichsruh , there was a train station as early as 1850 . In 1884 a stop "Aumühle" was set up, in 1909 construction of the station began.

With the establishment of the villa village Sachsenwald-Hofriede in 1891, Aumühle developed into an upscale residential area. The owner of this residential area suggested the construction of a viewing and water tower while Bismarck was still alive, which was inaugurated as the Bismarck Tower in 1901 .

In 1959 the official name Aumühle-Billenkamp , which had not been used for a long time, was changed to Aumühle .

The municipality of Aumühle has been part of the Hohe Elbgeest office since January 1st, 2008 .


Community representation

Of the 18 seats in the municipal council, the UWG community of voters won eight seats, the CDU six and the SPD four seats in the 2008 local elections .

Since the local elections in 2013, the UWG has six seats, the CDU four and the SPD three seats. The Greens with two seats and the newly founded local association of the FDP with one seat have moved into the community council .

After a dispute within the local association of the CDU, which was preceded by the decision not to nominate mayor Dieter Giese again as a candidate, he - together with the former CDU parliamentary group leader Rolf Czerwinski - stood as an individual applicant. Both also won a seat in the municipal council, Dieter Giese was then confirmed as mayor in office.

After the local elections in 2018, the UWG is still the strongest parliamentary group with 8 seats. Tied for the CDU and Bündnis90 / DieGrünen with 5 seats. The SPD continues to have 3 seats. The FDP with 2 seats.
