The districts are located in the Saale-Unstrut-Triasland , on a plateau east of the Saale . It is located about 8 km southwest of Naumburg or 3 km south of Bad Kösen at the beginning of the most overgrown hill country around Zeitz .

Administrative history

The villages are within sight of the Rudelsburg and belonged to this property for centuries. Over the centuries, the noble families Bünau , von Osterhausen (1581–1671) and von Creutzen owned the villages.

The Gutsbezirk Kreipitzsch served as the fore-castle Rudelsburg and belonged to 1815 to float to the high pin Naumburg-Zeitz associated Office Naumburg . This in turn was under the sovereignty of the Duchy of Saxony-Zeitz between 1656/57 and 1718 , then of the Electorate of Saxony and from 1806 of the Kingdom of Saxony . With the Congress of Vienna in 1815, Kreipitzsch was incorporated into the Naumburg district in the Prussian province of Saxony . The place came in 1932 to the district of Weißenfels , which had belonged to the state of Saxony-Anhalt since 1946.

Crölpa, Löbschütz and Freiroda later belonged to the Wettin office of Camburg and Heiligenkreuz to the district office of Eisenberg . Due to several divisions in the course of their existence, these two offices were under the sovereignty of various Ernestine duchies . In 1826 the places came from the Duchy of Saxony-Gotha-Altenburg to the Duchy of Saxony-Meiningen and became part of the Camburg exclave . From 1922 to 1939 the four places belonged to the Camburg district department , then to the Thuringian district of Stadtroda until 1948 , then briefly to the district of Jena .

On July 25, 1952, Crölpa-Löbschütz, Freiroda and Heiligenkreuz became part of the newly formed Naumburg district in the Halle district as a result of the regional reform in the GDR , which ended their affiliation with Thuringia. Kreipitzsch also came from the Weißenfels district to the Naumburg district. On September 1, 1965, Freiroda was incorporated into the municipality of Crölpa-Löbschütz.

The district consisted of the settlements

  • Crölpa (September 10, 1046),
  • Freiroda (1350),
  • Kreipitzsch (April 2, 1186),
  • Löbschütz (April 2, 1186)
  • Heiligenkreuz (October 24, 1217)

The date of the first documentary mention in brackets

After the re-establishment of Saxony-Anhalt, the municipality formed part of the first Burgenlandkreis from 1994 , in which it initially belonged to the Bad Kösen administrative community , and from 2008 to the Wethautal administrative community (seat: Osterfeld).

On January 1, 2010 Crölpa-Löbschütz, Freiroda, Heiligenkreuz and Kreipitzsch were incorporated into the city of Naumburg an der Saale as districts. The joint district administration is still in the district of Freiroda.

  • Evangelical Church Crölpa-Löbschütz: The Romanesque choir tower is a remnant of the original church. The current baroque nave was built in 1799, the chancel separated from it by a high pointed arch; the originally Romanesque windows were bricked up to improve the effect of the stained glass windows that were added later, especially for the benefit of the crucifixion scene. The three-sided galleries are two-story: on the south side of the first gallery is the pulpit, the organ on the second. The weather vane on the church tower dates from 1819.
