To the north-east of the village is the Odertalsperre and to the south the Wiesenbeker Teich , a reservoir of the Upper Harz water reserve .

Neighboring communities

The neighboring communities include Herzberg am Harz in the west, Braunlage in the north and Bad Sachsa in the southeast .

City structure

Since the regional reform on July 1, 1972 , the city of Bad Lauterberg has been divided as follows:

  • Bad Lauterberg (this includes the center, the Aue and the Oder Valley)
  • Barbis (this includes Oderfeld, Altbarbis and Königshagen)
  • Bartolfelde
  • Osterhagen


The place name goes back to the Lutter river , which first gave its name to the mountain, then to the castle and finally to the settlement. This name is likely to be a derivation from Old Saxon hlûttar , which can be translated as "bright, pure, clear, louder".

The genesis of the toponym (in excerpts): 1183 “Luterberch”, 1324 “Lutterberg”, 1568 “Lautterberg”, from 1617 almost exclusively “Lauterberg”.


Bad Lauterberg around 1900

Construction of Lutterberg Castle

In 1183, Count Siegebodo II from Scharzfeld had Lutterberg Castle built on the local mountain. In 1202, around 20 years later, this was first mentioned in a document, along with other castles in the Harz region. The last count of Lutterberg Castle, Count Heidenreich III., Died in 1398, after which knight Hans von Minningerode occupied the castle for four years until it was finally handed over to the Count of Hohnstein . In 1415, Lutterberg Castle was completely destroyed as a result of a dispute between the Duke of Grubenhagen and the Count of Hohnstein and has not been rebuilt to this day.

Mining development

The County of Lutterberg was granted mountain freedom in 1521 , which gave the miners there special rights. This was to ensure that experienced miners from the Ore Mountains came to the city. A mining settlement grew out of the small town of Lutterdorf at the foot of the Hausberg. In 1619 the city received permission to hold a fair twice a year.

During the Thirty Years War , the city was looted and almost completely burned down in 1641. Only three houses were spared from the fire. After the reconstruction, the copper works in Luttertal were built in 1705 and the Königshütte works in 1733. The latter was expanded to include a foundry and a blast furnace in 1820. The foundry remained in operation until 2001. Copper mining ended at Lauterberg between 1830 and 1868. The mining of barite in the Wolkenhügel pit continued until June 2007.

Development into a spa town

As early as 1839, Ernst Ritscher recognized the need for alternatives to mining and created a cold water sanatorium. In 1900 there were 5004 spa guests and 5305 inhabitants. In 1866 the ten-year construction of the spa park began. Forty years later, the district government of Hildesheim named the place a bath and from then on bore the name Bad Lauterberg in the Harz region . Medical councilor Josef Mayer from Munich introduced Kneipp therapy in 1926 and later also the Schroth cure procedure . In the same year, the local Kneipp club was founded.

In the course of industrialization, various trades and companies settled here from the middle of the 19th century. Some of these had considerable numbers of employees. The following should be mentioned in particular: brush production (Adler, Richter, etc.); Chair and furniture production (Germania, Böhme, Blödhorn, Halthoff); Match production (Deig); Button making; Machine tool production (Kuhlmann); Steel and sheet metal processing (MIAG); Foundry and mill construction (Königshütte). The water power to be used by the slope of the Oder played a certain role as an energy source: up to the present day there are around five different water ditch systems.

In 1929 Bad Lauterberg received city rights. In the following year, work began on building the dam for the Oder dam, which was completed in 1934. At the end of the Second World War there was hard fighting for Bad Lauterberg, with 54 houses and 153 apartments being destroyed, which corresponded to a degree of destruction of 8%. The city was eventually captured by American troops, and then it became part of the British zone of occupation .

After 1945, the population grew significantly due to the influx of people who had been expelled from the east . Thousands of people from Silesia , Pomerania , the Sudetenland and East Prussia found a new home in the village. The Odertal community camp (foreign workers' camp), which was empty after the end of the war, played an important role in the settlement of the displaced. From 1949, many new residents were able to move into newly built apartments in multi-family houses in the Aue district with ERP funds. At the same time, many single-family houses were also built in the Aue. In order to use the potential of the refugees' labor force, a number of large and small production facilities were built in the period after 1945. The following are to be mentioned: DETA (accumulators); Fouchs (log houses); Drinks (insulation boards); Tailor (wood pulp); Dilinski joinery (cabinet systems).

In 1949 the spa town was officially designated the Kneipp spa and in 1968 it became a state-recognized Kneipp spa, and in 1982 it became a Schroth spa.

In 2008 the city celebrated its 825th anniversary.

Since the merger of the districts of Osterode am Harz and Göttingen on November 1, 2016, Bad Lauterberg in the Harz region has been part of the Göttingen district.


On July 1, 1972, the communities Barbis, Bartolfelde and Osterhagen were incorporated.
