About this picture

Bad Oldesloe (pronounced [ ˌbatˀɔldəsˈloː ] with Dehnungs -e , Bad Oschloe in Low German ) is the district town of the Stormarn district in Schleswig-Holstein ( Germany ). The urban area includes Altfresenburg, Blumendorf, Glinde I, Glinde II, Kneeden, Neufresenburg, Poggensee, Rethwischfeld, Schadehorn, Seefeld, Sehmsdorf and Wolkenwehe.

The area was already settled in the Stone Age. Flint tools found here were dated to 6000–4500 BC. And are known as the Oldesloer level .

After a geodetic deformation analysis of the place Treva from the ancient map series of Geographike Hyphegesis , which the Institute for Geodesy of the Technical University of Berlin carried out as part of a research project of the German Research Foundation from 2007 to 2010, this historical place was located in the area of ​​today's Bad Oldesloe.

Oldesloe was first mentioned in 1163 as " Tadeslo ". The Schauenburg Counts of Holstein-Stormarn developed the place, which is located in the Saxon-Slavic border area at a Trave crossing on the North Sea-Baltic Sea Road from Lübeck to Hamburg , into an important transshipment point. A customs post is already occupied for 1175 . Around 1238 Oldesloe received the town charter in Luebeck, and in 1370 Count Adolf VIII got the market charter. Since 1289, there was evidence of an infirmary for lepers in front of the city's Hamburger Tor , known as St. Jürgen's Infirmary.

In 1515, due to a royal privilege given to the Lübeck merchant Mathias Mulich, the first of several copper hammers was created on the Beste . In 1529 the Alster-Beste Canal was put into operation and Oldesloe was on the inland waterway connection between Hamburg and Lübeck until shipping was discontinued around 1550. With the Rethwischfeld incorporated in 1972, the area of ​​the Rethwisch Castle, built in 1699, is now part of Oldesloe. The two dukes of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Plön-Rethwisch resided here until 1729 .

On May 22, 1798, a city fire destroyed three quarters of the city.

Bath tub from the spa from 1813; exhibited as a monument in the spa gardens

In 1813 a modern spa (brine, moor and sulfur bath) was put into operation. However, the award of the title " Bad " did not take place until 1910, when the scope of the spa business was almost meaningless again. Despite the fact that it is no longer recognized as a spa, Oldesloe still bears the addition of "bath" to its name. The last salt storage facility on the Trave in Lübeck belonging to the Saline Oldesloe was sold in 1839.

With the connection to the railway network in 1865 ( Hamburg –Bad Oldesloe– Lübeck ), the traveschifffahrt, which had been important for this route until then, was discontinued. The Elmshorn – Bad Oldesloe railway line, opened in 1907 (via Ulzburg and Barmstedt ), was shut down on the Ulzburg – Blumendorf section in 1973.

In the 1930s, Mayor Friedrich Wilhelm Kieling fought in vain for the district administration of the Stormarn district to be relocated from the independent city of Hamburg-Wandsbek to Bad Oldesloe, which led to serious disagreements with District Administrator Constantin Bock von Wülfingen . In the Second World War , after the catastrophic bombing of Hamburg in the summer of 1943, the district administration was temporarily moved from Hamburg-Wandsbek to Bad Oldesloe. Bad Oldesloe itself was also affected by the air war from 1940.

An attack by the Royal Air Force on April 24, 1945 claimed over 700 lives and 300 wounded. Several hundred buildings were totally destroyed or badly damaged. At the beginning of May 1945 the Allies had occupied almost all of Germany. On May 2, 1945, Bad Oldesloe surrendered to the advancing British troops without a fight. Two days later, Hans-Georg von Friedeburg signed the surrender of all German troops in north-west Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark at Lüneburg on behalf of the last Reich President Karl Dönitz , who had previously left the last Reich government in Flensburg - Mürwik .

Since 1949 the district administration, which was only provisionally located in Bad Oldesloe due to the war, has officially been permanently in the city.


In 1928, Blumendorf was incorporated. Fresenburg followed a year later. Rethwischfeld was added on January 1, 1972. With the incorporation of Sehmsdorf on August 1, 1976, the series of incorporations was completed.

Flower village

The farming village of Blumendorf was first mentioned in documents in 1314. It belonged to Gut Fresendorf (Altfresenburg) until it was acquired by Hans von Buchwald zu Schadehorn in 1635 . This converted it into a noble estate .

Manor House Flower Village

In 1755, the then landowner Jacob Levin von Plessen built today's manor house with a gatehouse and gardens. In 1761 the Blumendorf estate came to the von Luckner family . In 1763, two years after Blumendorf, the Schulenburg estate also came into the possession of Nicolaus von Luckner . In 1794, during the turmoil of the French Revolution in Paris, he died on the guillotine. His son of the same name lifted serfdom the following year. In 1827 the estate went to Martin Johann Jenisch , who brought Blumendorf and Altfresenburg back together after almost 200 years. In 1881 the goods fell to Martin Rücker von Jenisch , who was raised to the Prussian nobility and baron status in 1906. His descendant, Martin Freiherr von Jenisch, still owns the two estates today.

In 1889 the manor district came under municipal law to the district of Fresenburg . In 1907, Blumendorf received a train station on the Elmshorn – Bad Oldesloe railway (Elmshorn-Barmstedt-Oldesloer Railway) . Freight traffic has been taking place on the remnant Blumendorf ↔ Bad Oldesloe since the end of passenger operations in 1973. In 1928 the manor district was dissolved and incorporated into Bad Oldesloe. At that time, Blumendorf had 307 inhabitants. From 1950 onwards, new settlements for refugees and displaced persons from East Germany were built on 149 hectares. In the years around 1958 the castle was used as a hospital.


Gatehouse of the Altfresenburg estate

Fresenburg goes back to a Slavic castle from the 8th century. However, it was not mentioned in documents until 1263 as a noble estate , to which the villages of Poggensee and Seefeld also belonged in addition to the Alt- and Neufresenburg, Poggensee and Schadehorn farms. In 1544 , the landowner Bartholomäus von Ahlefeld settled Mennonites who had fled religious persecution in their homeland in Wüstenfelde near Schadehorn. Even Menno Simons found a home here. Simon's printing works, the Mennokate , can still be visited today. In 1710 the von Buchwaldt family bought the estate. Hugo von Buchwaldt had the still existing manor house built by Christian Frederik Hansen in 1791 . The serfdom was abolished only 1804th With the introduction of the Prussian municipal constitution in 1889, the manor district together with the Blumendorf manor district formed the Fresenburg district . When the estate districts were dissolved, Fresenburg was incorporated into Bad Oldesloe in 1928, at that time it had 638 inhabitants. During the land reform after the Second World War , large parts of the former estate were settled.

Peter and Paul Church

In 1150, Bishop Vicelin consecrated the first known church in Oldesloes, the Petruskirche, which is the predecessor of today's Peter and Paul Church . It is believed that the Petruskirche went up in flames in 1415 when Oldesloe was cremated by Duke Erich V von Sachsen-Lauenburg . A new church was then built on its foundations, which was named "kerke sante Peters unde sante Pawels". The Lutheran Reformation has been in effect in Oldesloe since 1525 . According to an old tradition, the reformer Johannes Bugenhagen is said to have preached in the Peter-Paul-Kirche at the time. In the years before 1537, the Peter and Paul Church was largely burned down by a lightning strike. In order to be able to celebrate services again, in 1542 the roof of the church, which was destroyed down to the outer walls, was covered. Over the past two centuries, attempts were made to repair the church again and again until the decision was made to demolish the Peter and Paul Church due to security concerns. A little later on July 19, 1757, the foundation stone was laid for a new church, which was finally completed in 1763. A roof turret was on the roof of the church until around 1844. The church got its present appearance from the 60 meter high tower built in 1886 in the neo-Gothic style.

Evangelical Lutheran Church Congregation

The Evangelical Lutheran Church Congregation in Bad Oldesloe is the largest parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Northern Germany .

Evangelical Free Church Baptist Congregation

The community center of the Baptist church is located in the street Am Moordamm . It belongs to the Federation of Evangelical Free Churches .


It is estimated that around 1,500 Muslims live in Bad Oldesloe.


The Anabaptist movement was very popular in the middle of the 16th century with the arrival of Menno Simons . There was also a Moravian Brethren called Pilgerruh for a short time in Oldesloe in the 18th century .

Culture and sights

Theaters and museums

The Mennocate

The listed Mennokate from the 16th century is now a museum in memory of Menno Simons , the namesake of the Mennonites , a free church of the Reformation Anabaptist movement . It was in this building that some of his books such as the Foundation Book were printed.

The local history museum (in the building of the city library) offers a considerable collection from the oldest post-glacial finds to modern times.

Bad Oldesloe does not have a permanent theater building, but has two associations that perform with their productions in different locations. The Oldeslo Stage Association has been performing High German and Low German plays since 1966. The Bad Oldesloe Makes Theater association, founded in 2002, emerged from the Hagelstein - Bad Oldesloe Makes Theater project , which was based on the idea, concept and basic staging of the English director Tim Page. The association organizes extensive open-air theater projects in the city, including 2004 Salzgraf (director: Frank Schröder ) and 2007 Die Witwe von der Hude (director: Sebastian Urs Syrbe). In 2011, the play Marke Bölck , directed by Sven Lange, was premiered in the Kulturhof , which dealt with the factory owner Friedrich Bölck . The same director and author, now as Sven Lenz, staged the play 1848 - Freedom for Oldesloe , in the same location in May 2015 , in which the Oldesloers ' struggle for freedom under Danish rule is thematized.


Since March 1, 2006, the local music scene has been organized as "Klangstadt1". At the moment 20 local bands are organized in this group, which has already set up numerous events. On 14./15. In July 2007 the Bad Oldesloe Open Air took place for the first time , which has been called KlangStadt Open Air since 2008 .

The marketplace

The basic structure of the city, which has grown up to Beste and Trave since the Middle Ages, is still clearly recognizable, the original main streets Besttorstraße, Mühlenstraße and Lange Straße (named after Paul von Hindenburg since 1930 ) are now pedestrian zones . Demolitions and new developments, especially since the 1960s, have significantly impaired the old townscape. Only in the Heiligengeistviertel can you still feel the old town atmosphere. The embedding of the old town in its natural surroundings, on the other hand, comes into its own. The city can be explored on foot along the numerous waterways and rivers as well as in the adjacent parks. Although the spa has long since been closed, Bad Oldesloe still has the atmosphere of a spa town, especially in the parks.

Green spaces and recreation
