Middle Ages to modern times

The first written mention of the place was in 1219; The reference to a document that was issued by the monastery in Walkenried as a purchase contract for a lake near the settlement of Saxa - now Bad Sachsa - from around 810, in which the place is said to have been mentioned for the first time, is incorrect . Since there is talk of a pastor Siegfried from Sachsa in 1229, it can be assumed that Sachsa already existed at that time. The oldest preserved building is the tower of the (today Protestant) St. Nikolai Church ; its construction is dated between 1180 and 1200. On the Sachsenstein , on the Bad Sachsa - Walkenried near Neuhof railway line, there is the ruin of the Sachsenburg, which the German King Heinrich IV had built around 1070, but which, due to local resistance, was already unfinished in 1074 Part of the peace of Gerstungen had to be canceled again.

Since 1238 at the latest, Sachsa belonged to the County of Honstein , before that it belonged to the County of Klettenberg . Between 1516 and 1525 (probably 1525) Sachsa acquired city rights. After the Counts of Honstein died out in 1593 (Ernst VII left no male heir), the Counts of Schwarzburg and the Counts of Stolberg claimed the county. But the administrator of the Diocese of Halberstadt took possession of the county, which he withdrew as a settled fiefdom and lent it on to the Duke of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel (the special thing about this is that the Administrator of the Diocese of Halberstadt and the Duke of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel are one and the same person were; it was Heinrich Julius von Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel ). Although the action brought by the Counts of Schwarzburg and von Stolberg before the Reich Chamber of Commerce led to a favorable verdict, Heinrich Julius and his successors refused to sell the county. In the course of the Thirty Years War , the rulership changed several times until the county was occupied by the Swedish in 1648.

In the Peace of Westphalia , the Principality of Halberstadt and the County of Hohenstein were given to the Elector of Brandenburg. Since then, Sachsa was Brandenburg-Prussian, with the exception of the French period from 1807 to 1813. After Prussia gained considerable territories in the Congress of Vienna , the kingdom was divided into ten provinces in 1816. One of them was the newly created province of Saxony. Sachsa was in this province in the administrative district of Erfurt and in the district of Nordhausen, which was named Grafschaft Hohenstein from 1888. This affiliation remained until July 1945.

Tourism in Bad Sachsa began around 1860, and the spa business began in 1874. In 1900 there were 4051 spa guests and 2123 inhabitants. The city has been officially called Bad Sachsa since 1905 . In the mid-1920s, 3195 inhabitants were counted.

National Socialism

During the time of National Socialism , the site developed into a focus of the NSDAP in the Nordhausen-Südharz party district (the Fritz-Sauckel-Haus district training center was built here) and was heavily guarded. For this reason the children from the families of the assassins were taken into kin custody in Bad Sachsa on July 20, 1944 and interned in a children's home of the National Socialist People's Welfare (NSV).

In the autumn of 1944 the archive and the picture center of the Peenemünde Army Research Center (HVA) were relocated to Bad Sachsa under the cover name "Ostverlag". Because of the British bombing raids on Peenemünde at the end of the Second World War , the Dornberger staff with 450 rocket technicians from the HVA, including Walter Dornberger , Wernher von Braun and Helmut Gröttrup , was housed on Pfaffenberg in Bad Sachsa and in places in the vicinity from February 17, 1945 . Because of the heavy bombing raids on Nordhausen on April 3 and 4, 1945 and the rapid advance of the Allied troops, this workforce was transported to Oberammergau on April 6, 1945 under the guard of the SS .

The production of the V1 and V2 rockets was organized from January 1944 by Mittelwerk GmbH under the direction of the Ministry of Armaments and the SS by prisoners from the nearby Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp in an underground tunnel in Kohnstein near Nordhausen .

Occupation zones 1945

On April 12, 1945, Bad Sachsa was occupied by American troops after short fighting. From the beginning of July the Americans withdrew to the zone of occupation assigned to them by the London Protocol of September 12, 1944 . The following them Soviet troops left Bad Sachsa that in the Soviet zone of occupation was, but unoccupied, to British troops on July 23, the city occupied . This was preceded by an exchange of territory between the British and the Soviet high command, in which Bad Sachsa and the surrounding area (the neighboring town of Tettenborn was also affected) fell under the British occupation zone and the eastern part of the Brunswick district of Blankenburg came under the Soviet occupation zone. The district of Osterode am Harz, to which Sachsa had de facto belonged since mid-July 1945, was also de jure incorporated on September 1, 1945.

After 1945

From 1960 to 1961 the youth hostel was built on site according to plans by the architect Hans Jaeckel . The Kursaal Bad Sachsa was also built between 1962 and 1963 based on Jaeckel's designs.

Since the merger of the districts of Osterode am Harz and Göttingen on November 1, 2016, Bad Sachsa has belonged to the district of Göttingen .


On July 1, 1972, the neighboring towns and communities Neuhof (formerly Braunschweigisch ), Steina (formerly Hanoverian ) and Tettenborn were incorporated.

Place name

Former place names of Sachsa were in the years 1219 Saxa, 1232 Sassa, 1237 Saxa and 1238 Sassa. The meaning of the place name Sachsa is not clear. It is most likely to be justified with “Sahs-aha” for being allowed to see . The basic word is probably the Germanic "aha" for "water, river, brook". In addition, the developed "Sahs-" for "stone" is probably included. The name would then have meant "Steinbach". Possibly it referred to the Uffe river or the Sachsengraben as a section name that was retained in the place name.



Bad Sachsa are the Evangelical Lutheran parish of St. Nicholas and municipalities in the districts of Neuhof, Steina and Tettenborn. The parish of Bad Sachsa used to belong to the Evangelical Church of the Church Province of Saxony and was looked after by the Evangelical Church of Westphalia during the division of Germany . It was only through a contract between the two church leaderships in October 1996 that the congregation was incorporated into the Herzberg parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hanover ; With the amalgamation of the Herzberg, Osterode and Clausthal-Zellerfeld church districts to form the Harzer Land church district on January 1, 2013, the St. Nikolai parish now belongs to this church district. The community has the church of the same name on Kirchstrasse and the neighboring Luther House.

The Roman Catholic St. Josef Church is located on Herderstrasse, it belongs to the parish of St. Benno in Bad Lauterberg . As early as 1931, a small Catholic church St. Josef was inaugurated on Herderstrasse. The current church was built from 1961 to 1963. The Catholic house Tannenried on Bismarckstrasse, originally built in 1910 as a factory owner's house, was closed in 2009. There was a small chapel in the house.

The New Apostolic congregation Bad Sachsa was founded in 1977, it belongs to the Göttingen church district and has a church on the Ringstrasse that was consecrated in 1979.

The Jehovah's Witnesses have a Kingdom Hall on the Steinaer road.

coat of arms

Today's municipal coat of arms of the city of Bad Sachsa corresponds to the design of the coat of arms drawn up in 1938 by the State Archives Councilor Otto Korn in the Reich Archives in Magdeburg. But the motif is much older. As early as 1838 the city forester received a paddock with a paddock lock on which the "half oak tree with six fruits" could be seen. The oak in the coat of arms of Bad Sachsa was therefore not included as a coat of arms symbol until the “Third Reich”. The city council of Bad Sachsa decided on September 14, 1950 that the city's coat of arms in the version produced by the Magdeburg State Archives should continue to be valid. The coat of arms was approved on April 2, 1953 by the Lower Saxony Ministry of the Interior .

Bad Sachsa coat of arms
Blazon : " Cleaved shield , front in silver on green floor of protruding from the gap a half green oak tree with six golden acorns , rear split , the top of Silver a border, black , red - bezungter Hirsch , down red and silver checkered ."
Justification of the coat of arms: The front half of the coat of arms shows either a conifer or a deciduous tree over the centuries. In any case, the tree stands for the hunting rights of the city in the Harz Forest. The rear half of the coat of arms has remained unchanged since 1525. The black stag is the coat of arms of the Counts of Klettenberg , to whose county Sachsa in the 12th / 13th centuries. Century belonged. In 1238 Sachsa fell to the Counts of Hohnstein . Their tournament and battle symbols were the slaughtered shield. The Hohnsteiner gave Sachsa city rights. The family died out in 1593.

There are also courses offered by the Göttingen-Osterode adult education center .


Rail transport

Bad Sachsa is connected to the rail network of Deutsche Bahn by the southern Harz line and has a train stop on the edge of Neuhof about two kilometers from the center. Since this station was not set up until later, the station in Tettenborn was the only station in Bad Sachsa at that time. However, it has been closed and demolished.

Local public transport

Bad Sachsa is connected to the surrounding area by bus lines 470, 471 and 472 of the Verkehrsverbund Süd-Niedersachsen . One line opens up the districts of Tettenborn and Steina, the other two lines open up the district of Neuhof. All lines also serve Bad Sachsa train station. The bus service in Bad Sachsa is operated by a private company on behalf of the VSN .

Road traffic

Bad Sachsa has a connection to the B 243 . Bad Sachsa also has connections to several district and state roads. Many streets within the city are partly badly damaged, the city center is an exception. The maintenance work to date has been financed with EU funds.


Even before the border was opened in 1989, the Neuhof substation was connected to the Wolkramshausen substation via a 110 kV double line. The GDR exported electrical energy to Lower Saxony via this line . To compensate for the frequency fluctuations, a 6 MVA frequency converter was installed in the Neuhof substation.

Campsite in the Borntal

In the Borntal there is a campsite that was opened in 2001. It is located on the site of a former children's hospital that was set up in eight wooden houses in 1935/36.

A Bremen foundation erected the building to enable city children to take a cure in the southern Harz. However, the “Children's Recreation Home” could not start its work properly because the site was expropriated by the Nazi government in 1936 . A maternal convalescent home was to be built there. After the assassination attempt on July 20, 1944, 46 children of those involved were taken into kin detention there and were closely guarded by the Gestapo . In addition, the secret staff around Wernher von Braun and Walter Dornberger lived and worked on the site in 1944/45 .

After the liberation by the Americans, the children's home was transferred back to the Bremen Foundation, but after a while it was sold again. Later, a nationally known children's hospital with a delivery room , intensive care unit and an X-ray station, which was modern for the time , was set up in the building . A three-story nurses' home was also built on the site. Two of the historic wooden houses were demolished for the conversion to a campsite.

Today, large parts of the site of the former children's hospital are overgrown and some of the buildings are badly damaged by vandalism and lack of maintenance.
