Dippoldiswalde ([ dɪpɔldɪsˈvaldə ], colloquially Dipps ) is a large district town in the Saxon Switzerland-Eastern Ore Mountains district in Saxony . The city is centrally located in the Eastern Ore Mountains and is about 20 kilometers south of Dresden , halfway between the border with the Czech Republic and the state capital. With around 14,000 inhabitants, Dippoldiswalde is one of the three medium-sized centers in the district .

The first documented mention of Dippoldiswalde dates back to 1218, since then the city has been the administrative center of several historical territories, such as the Dippoldiswalde office in the Middle Ages and later an administrative governing body . Most recently, Dippoldiswalde was the district town of the Weißeritzkreis until 2008 (license plate DW ). Since the district seat was moved to Pirna , Dippoldiswalde has been a major district town. In addition to the core town, the town of Dippoldiswalde now includes twenty districts that were formed from formerly independent communities from the surrounding area.


The city is located in the northern Ore Mountains on the Rote Weißeritz .

City structure

The town consists of the Dippoldiswalde Dippoldiswalde nucleus and twenty hamlets, 1973-2014 incorporated were. All districts form their own district at the same time . The boundaries of districts and districts are usually congruent. In some districts there are several places that then belong to the same district. The core town has the largest share of the population of the city of Dippoldiswalde, followed by Schmiedeberg and Reichstädt , which also have over 1000 inhabitants.

From the 12th century to the end of the war in 1945

City church, choir with wooden ceiling

According to legend, Dippoldiswalde goes back to a hermit named Dippold, who is said to have lived in the Dippoldiswalder Heide on the Einsiedlerfelsen around 800 . This is said to have founded the place. The only thing behind this legend is the fact that the locator was an otherwise undetectable person named Diepold. The name of the place is traced back to this personal name, which carries the Old High German word diot (people) and soon (bold) or walt in the sense of rule.

According to many historians, Dippoldiswalde was founded as a Waldhufendorf under the direction of the Burgraves of Dohna around 1160/70. Gerhard Cheap sees a possibility that these burgraves colonized the so-called Burgwartsberg in Pesterwitz before 1206 , built the castles Rabenau and Dippoldiswalde and had villages cleared . Since a German Burgward Dohna is not documented in Gau Nisan and neither is a Burggrafschaft Dohna before 1156, this possibility is unlikely. In view of new dendrological finds in the old mine of Dippoldiswalde from 1160, even the foundation directly from Dohna is questionable. As the latest mining archaeological research shows that Dippoldiswalde is a very early mining settlement, it does not necessarily have to be a Waldhufendorf. This would then be rather unlikely.

The first documentary mention took place on June 11, 1218, when a Johannes sacerdos de Dipoldiswale (Pastor Johannes von Dippoldiswalde) was mentioned in a document of the Meißner bishop . A village church must have already existed there. In 1266, Dippoldiswalde is attested as the property of the Wettin margrave Heinrich the Illustrious , when the citizens of Dippoldiswalde had a dispute with the citizens of Freiberg over deliveries to mines. In the diploma, however, it is not stated where the mines in question were located, so this written source does not constitute evidence of Dippoldiswalder silver mining around 1266.

Nikolaikirche from 1230/1240

At that time there were already two representative stone churches in Dippoldiswalde - the Marienkirche, built around 1200 near the market, and the somewhat younger Nikolaikirche in the Weißeritzaue. Only the late Romanesque-early Gothic west tower of the Marienkirche (the Lorenz patronage mentioned in the Middle Ages is not attested) is present. In contrast, the Nikolaikirche, built around 1230/40 as a short basilica without a tower, has been completely preserved. This was built as a new building after the demolition of the original village church, which must have been a smaller hall church made of wood or stone.

As part of renovation and safety work on old mining facilities , backfilled high medieval silver mines were discovered in the area of ​​the Obertore and on Dresdner Straße, which were verifiably in operation in the 12th century. The oldest dated pit timbers come from 1158 and, although used secondarily, from 1170, numerous other timbers from the period from 1183/84. In addition, wooden shaft extensions, turned bowls, remains of rope, ceramic shards and bones from the 13th century were found. The previously discovered shafts were shortly after the mid-13th century again filled Service. A second mining phase, in which the previously backfilled mines were driven through, could be dendrochronologically dated to around 1280. Silver mines in Dippoldiswalde were explicitly mentioned for the first time in 1300, when Friedrich Clem (the illegitimate son of Margrave Heinrich the Illustrious) transferred the silver tithe to the Nimbschen monastery near Grimma .

In 1401, Margrave Wilhelm I occupied Dippoldiswalde in the Dohna feud , which had been lent to the Burgraves of Dohna by the Wettins since 1366. At this time there was still a very small amount of mining at Dippoldiswalde, which no longer produced any income, as can be seen from the mint master's accounts 1401–1405. It was not until the 1470s that mining took off again in the second mining period.

In 1429 invading Hussites destroyed Dippoldiswalde. They also destroyed the three Vorwerke Wolframsdorf (in the middle Schwarzbachtal), Schwarzdorf (in the upper Schwarzbachtal) and Ziegenrück (on the western valley slope between Ulberndorf and Obercarsdorf ), which were not rebuilt afterwards.

In 1541 the Lutheran Reformation reached the place. In 1632 the city suffered severe damage in the Thirty Years' War . As the location of a margrave castle, Dippoldiswalde took on functions as a dominant, administrative and commercial or market center for the surrounding towns at an early stage ( office ). Consequently, in 1874 the city became the seat of the new Dippoldiswalde administration .

At the end of the Second World War , on April 17, 1945, anti-aircraft guns of the Wehrmacht shot down two American planes which crashed near the Teichmühle. On the night of May 9th, a Red Army vanguard raised the victory flag on the church tower.

May 1945 into the 21st century

The first local commandant was Major Datschin. The troops stationed here were responsible for many looting and rape. In accordance with the decision of the Allies and the new state administration, large companies, land and landowners were now expropriated (→ Land Reform Act ).

New, smaller, state- owned companies emerged in the GDR era, including a fittings factory, a container construction company and a foodstuff factory . There was also an engineering school for the food industry and a state-owned estate . Dippoldiswalde became a district town in the district administrative structures of that time. After the reunification , with the reorganization of the federal states, the city remained a district town until 2008, with the second Saxon district reform, Dippoldiswalde lost this status when the Weißeritzkreis was dissolved on August 1, 2008 in the newly created district of Saxon Switzerland-Eastern Ore Mountains.

coat of arms

Seal of the city council of Dippoldiswalde

Description: A portrait in gold of a white-bearded hermit with a nimbus and a blue robe with two crossed straps. It is elevated by two diagonally crossed natural three-rooted uprooted conifers with three cones each.

Symbolism: The coat of arms contains a curiosity. The founder Dippold contained in the coat of arms is taken from a legend. This Dippold is said to have lived in the wooded areas of what is now the Dippoldiswalder Heide around the Einsiedlerstein in the Heide. This man appeared in the coat of arms from 1588. In 1669 he then wore a beret and in 1730 he received crossed ribbons on his chest. The crossed trees with the cones are based on the coat of arms of the Burgraves of Dohna (two crossed silver stag poles). The current city coat of arms was created in 1894 with the following content: The hermit is given a blue robe, the city colors blue and yellow were chosen.

Tatar grave near Dippoldiswalde

A memorial plaque also commemorates him on the residential building at Herrengasse 14. The latest research results doubt a murder: “In Dippoldiswalde it was the prison death of the local KPD functionary Clemens Holzschuh, who was instrumentalized after the Second World War to stylize another dictatorship. In the GDR, the anti-democrat Holzschuh, who had a previous conviction for various violent and explosive offenses, was declared an anti-fascist martyr. To this end, a murder thesis was constructed after 1945, which the new political leaders should serve as an anti-fascist or moral basis for legitimation. This thesis lasted well into the turning point. In 2005 the city chronicle took over sources that do not exist in the city museum [...] In fact, no evidence of a murder can be found. "
