Eisenberg is located in the area of ​​the Saale-Elster sandstone slab in a hilly landscape surrounded by moderate heights, the vegetation of which consists partly of deciduous and coniferous forest. Geologically, it consists mainly of red sandstone .

Eisenberg lies for the most part on a plateau that extends around 275 meters above sea level from west to east. In the south and north of the city the ground drops steeply into two valleys in which the Malzbach and Raudabach stream flow. In the northwest is the Beuche, a wooded hill consisting of shell limestone , which merges into the Thuringian hill country.

City structure

The city of Eisenberg consists of the historic old town and recent city extensions. The Heimstätten settlement is located about one kilometer north of the city center. In the Raudatal, south of the old town, there are eight water mills along the stream. After Eisenberg the former neighboring communities Friedrichstanneck , Saasa and finally Kursdorf (March 8, 1994) were incorporated.

Neighboring communities

Neighboring communities are Gösen , Hainspitz , Heideland , Petersberg , Rauda , Silbitz , Tautenhain and Weißenborn . Eisenberg is divided into the four districts of Kernstadt, Friedrichstanneck, Saasa and Kursdorf. The northern entrance to the Eisenberger Mühltal , a popular excursion destination, is located near Kursdorf .


The average annual precipitation from 1961 to 1990 at the Eisenberg measuring station is 646 mm and is therefore below the German average, with the exception of April and August. The driest month is February, with the most rainfall in June and August.


Origins to 1900

There is evidence that the city's roots go back to the Stone Age . Eisenberg Castle was the predecessor of the current castle. It was built in the 12th century by order of the Margrave of Meißen. It was rebuilt in the 16th century, then expanded from 1677–1692 under Duke Christian von Sachsen-Eisenberg to become the Christiansburg Castle, which is still preserved today and named after him.

In the corridor of the incorporated district of Kursdorf there is a burial mound south of the "Alte Straße", which has been damaged by former military exercises. In “Jagen 88” there are two grave mounds from the Neolithic Age.

As early as 1171 there was a city fortification. In 1219 the Eisenberg Cistercian convent was established by moving the Zwickau monastery and equipping it with the goods of the Augustinian canon monastery, which had recently moved there from Camburg . In 1219 the city was first mentioned as "civitas". In 1256 several citizens were named. From the 13th century landgrave ministerials are proven.

In 1450 the Jacob's Chapel in what is now the state forest of Hainspitz is said to have been destroyed in the Saxon fratricidal war . The stones were used at the end of the 16th century to build the church in today's Saasa district and the Hundertmark'schen house on the market in Eisenberg. Remnants of the chapel existed until the 18th century.

In 1485 Eisenberg in Electoral Saxony fell to the Ernestines when Leipzig was divided . The Reformation was introduced in 1524 . From 1681 to 1707 the city was the residence of the Duchy of Saxony-Eisenberg , after which it belonged to Saxony-Altenburg until 1918 . Eisenberg was the seat of the Eisenberg district office .

In 1880 the railway line to Crossen was built, followed by its western continuation to Porstendorf to the Saalbahn near Jena in 1905 . The line to Porstendorf / Jena was closed in 1969 and that to Crossen / Gera in 1999.

1900 until now

10 dead Eisenbergers from bombs , 8 dead Americans from bomber crash on February 9, 1945 in the Mühltal

During the Nazi era , small communist and social democratic groups resisted Nazi rule. A circle around the Social Democrats Heinz Schubert and Friedrich Singer distributed educational pamphlets that they received from Czechoslovakia through the exile executive of the SPD ( Sopade ) . During the Second World War , at least 326 forced laborers from Eastern Europe were employed in companies that manufactured armaments, in companies in the wood processing, furniture manufacturing, leather and footwear industry, metal processing, instrument and apparatus manufacturing, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and porcelain manufacturing. A memorial in the cemetery, renovated in 1974, commemorates 53 victims of forced labor from 27 nations, including 35 prisoners on a concentration camp death march . Another memorial stone commemorates 17 children of forced laborers who died.

On February 9, 1945, two US B-17 bombers ("Flying Fortresses") collided in the area between Jena and Eisenberg after one of them had been damaged by flak . The stern of the other had been torn off in the collision and he fell in the Mühltal , 50 meters north of the parish mill. Eight crew members were killed, the rear gunner was able to save himself. Before the crash, the machine got rid of its bombs over Eisenberg. Although these did not explode, they destroyed two houses, damaged others and killed ten people.

On April 9, 1945, the station, locomotives and track systems were attacked very effectively by US bombers with high explosive and incendiary bombs and by fighter bombers with bombs and on-board weapons. Houses were also hit and two people died.

Eisenberg was occupied by the US Army around April 13, 1945 and handed over to the Red Army in early July . So it became part of the Soviet occupied zone SBZ and from 1949 the GDR.

At the beginning of the 1950s, the Eisenberg Circle was formed in Eisenberg , a resistance group of high school students who, relying on the tradition of resistance against National Socialism, planned and carried out actions against SED rule.

On October 25, 1989, a prayer for peace took place in the overcrowded Luther Hall. A demonstration march then formed through Eisenberg. Every Wednesday, basic democratic rights were demanded every week, and soon the unity of Germany as well.

In Eisenberg there is the central reception center of the Free State of Thuringia for refugees and asylum seekers from all over the world. The building reflects German history for the past 150 years. It was built in 1870 as a sausage factory, later it was a retirement home, a military hospital in both world wars, then barracks for the NVA and the People's Police and (until 1979) a reception center for people emigrating from the FRG to the GDR. At the end of 2013 it housed over 500 people.

Eisenberg town hall

City council

The city council of Eisenberg consists of 24 council members. This is the specified number for a municipality with a population between 10,001 and 20,000. The 24 council members are elected by local elections for five years each.

The full-time mayor directly elected by the citizens is also entitled to vote in the city council.

The last local election on May 26, 2019 led to the following result with a turnout of 49.7% (2014: 45.9%):

Party / list Share of votes +/-% p Seats +/-
CDU 44.7% + 15.7 11 + 4
SPD 18.5% - 8.5 4th - 2nd
The left 17.1% - 8.8 4th - 2nd
FDP - - 3.0 0 - 1
BDS * 19.7% + 5.1 5 + 1

* Association of the Self-Employed, 2014: BDS / DGV Association of the Self-Employed / German Trade Association e. V.


Michael Kieslich (CDU) has been mayor since July 1, 2018.

The full-time mayor of the city of Eisenberg was Ingo Lippert from the SPD from 2000 to 2018 . Lippert was temporarily suspended from duty on June 29, 2015. Findings from the investigations into disciplinary proceedings (official offense for which, among other things, a fine of 33,000 euros was imposed by the Jena jury in April 2014) justified the assumption that "Mr. Lippert will be finally removed from the civil servant status in the context of the pending disciplinary action". The 1st alderman Götz Witkop temporarily took over the official business.

From 1990 to 2000, Burkhardt Wartner was mayor of Eisenberg.

Fulfilling Church

Eisenberg is the fulfilling community for the places:

coat of arms

City arms

The coat of arms of the city of Eisenberg consists of a tinned golden city wall with a tinned gate tower and closed gate. Behind the wall to the left and right of the main tower are two tinned side towers with red bell roofs. The center of the two side towers and the pointed roof of the gate are also in red. The base of the shield is limited by four transverse lines. Between the body of the Moor and the coat of arms there is a golden spade helmet with light decorations. The Moor's head wears a white bandage over his eyes and looks to the right. Half of the heraldic shield is framed by a blue and white saddle pad.

The city's coat of arms adorns the wall, the gate and the three towers, which stand for urban freedom, public spirit and a sense of strength, as well as a Moor's head. This goes back to a legend from the Middle Ages (around the 16th century), according to which a Moor brought by a duke from the crusades was accused of stealing a chain from the duke's wife and was supposed to be beheaded. Shortly before his execution, the countess found the alleged stolen property in her Bible and sent a messenger to the place of execution just in time, so that the innocent Moor was spared. To restore his honor, his head with the blindfold should adorn the city coat of arms.

In 1727, a statue of the Moor, who is the city's landmark, was erected behind the town hall on a fountain base.

The city of Eisenberg uses its own logo for different purposes . It consists of a geometrically constructed small Latin e, which is cut through by a cross of lines. The color of the logo is blue on a white background. The upper right quarter can be designed variably and offers space for the coat of arms or for other themed symbols.


The city's flag shows the colors blue and white lengthways with the city's coat of arms in the middle.

Town twinning

Eisenberg maintains city ​​partnerships with the following cities:

Culture and sights

Christiansburg with St. Trinitatis Castle Church
city ​​Museum
A town house from the Renaissance on the market square, seat of the Evangelical Superintendent since 1729
Stumbling block for Alma Rothholz in Burgstrasse 13


From 1680 to 1707 the city of Eisenberg was the residential city of the Duchy of Saxony-Eisenberg . Under Duke Christian von Sachsen-Eisenberg , Christiansburg Palace was redesigned into a baroque three-wing complex. Today the castle is the seat of the district administration. A special feature is the castle church of St. Trinitatis , which the duke had built from 1680 to 1692 on the east side of the castle. It is considered the most beautiful baroque church in the state of Thuringia

On the market square in Eisenberg there are three free-standing buildings as well as the Mohrenbrunnen , which is the landmark of the city of Eisenberg. The Eisenberg town hall standing in the southwest corner of the market square was first mentioned in 1576. In the 16th century, several renovations were carried out in the Renaissance style . In 1702/1703 the town hall tower was raised and an oriel was added. In 1999 the city won the federal award for the most beautiful town hall.

The town church of St. Peter is on the north side of the market square . It was mentioned as a chapel as early as 1219 in the founding document of the Eisenberg nunnery. The church consists of the late Gothic choir from 1494, the nave built in 1585 and the church tower, the date of which is not certain.

The third building on the market square is the Eisenberg City Museum in the so-called Klötzner House. The building of the wealthy businessman Karl Friedrich Klötzner (1853–1932) came into the possession of the city in 1911 and initially served as a residential building. In 1984 the city council decided to set up a city museum, which was not opened until 1992. It shows the Eisenberg urban development from early history to industrialization .

Friedrichstanneck Palace, west of the city center, is currently in ruins .

The Eisenberg zoo was opened in 1971 and shows small breeds of domestic animals, wild animals from Australia and from African mountain regions as well as native forest inhabitants.

The castle park adjoining the castle with arched garden and fountain as well as the peace park between the town hall and the catholic church are ideal for walks.


World War Memorial in the cemetery on Memorial Day 2013
Memorial to the victims of the death march in the city cemetery

In the Eisenberg cemetery on Mühlenstrasse, three objects are supposed to keep the memory of the time of National Socialism , the Second World War and the post-war period alive. A memorial commemorates 35  concentration camp prisoners buried in the cemetery. They died on a death march in Eisenberg and the surrounding area when the concentration camps were cleared in April 1945, shortly before the end of the Second World War . A memorial stone with the inscription “Here, far from home, 17 children of forcibly displaced Eastern workers between the ages of 1 and 15 are resting. Her death is a reminder of eternal peace. ”Remembers 17 children of forced laborers who died of insufficient supplies and who also found their final resting place in the Eisenberg cemetery.

Another memorial stone with the inscription “IN MEMORY OF THE VICTIMS OF WORLD WAR II, THE ESCAPE AND DISPLACEMENT, INJUSTICE AND VIOLENCE” commemorates all victims of this time.

In Friedrich-Ebert-Straße at Friedenspark and in Geraer Straße at the parking lot to the zoo there are more memorial stones for the march of the prisoners of the Buchenwald concentration camp through Eisenberg.

In the Saasa district, a grave with a plaque commemorates four young children of Soviet forced laborers who were deported to Germany during the Second World War . On the village square there is a memorial for the victims of war and tyranny (former war memorial of the First World War ).

There are two monuments in the palace garden. The Duke Christian monument is right next to the palace church. In the rear part of the park a memorial stone with its copper relief commemorates the Reichstag deputy and chairman of the KPD Ernst Thälmann (1886–1944), who was killed in the Buchenwald concentration camp in August 1944 . The Thälmann memorial is a former Bismarck memorial that was repurposed during the GDR era.

Other monuments are the Krause memorial on Krauseplatz behind the Eisenberg police station and a memorial to the atomic physicist Frédéric Joliot-Curie between the former boys' school (now part of the district office in Schulgasse) and the East elementary school.

In 1993, Jörg Petermann took the initiative to erect a memorial stone for the ten victims of the bombing on February 9, 1945 in Jenaer Strasse in Eisenberg and for the eight crew members who died afterwards in the Mühltal near the impact point of their "flying fortress" Boeing B-17 above the parish mill set.

On June 19, 2015, a stumbling block for Alma Rothholz was laid in the sidewalk in front of the house at Burgstrasse 13 , with the active participation of citizens, representatives of the city administration and the Jewish community .
