|Location of the district town of Forst (Lausitz)
in the Spree-Neisse district
Forst (Lausitz) ( Baršć in Lower Sorbian , is the district town of the Spree-Neisse district in Lower Lusatia . Besides Neukirch / Lausitz, Forst is the only place with the Lausitz suffix , other places explicitly name the respective part of the Lausitz in their suffixes, for example Weißwasser / Oberlausitz .),
The city is located 20 kilometers east of Cottbus on the Lusatian Neisse . On the opposite Polish bank is the village of Zasieki (German: Skaren , formerly Berge ) of the municipality of Brody (Pförten) , which was a Forster district until 1945.
The city is divided into the districts:
- Forest (Lausitz) with the residential areas Domsdorf (Sorb. Domašojce ), Own Scholle (Swójske Grunty) , Eulo (Wiłow) , Forestry Keune (Gólnikaŕnja Chójna) , Keune ( Chójna ; until November 30, 1937 Koyne ), Mexico and Noßdorf (Nosydłojce )
- Bohrau (Bórow)
- Briesnig (Ryaznik)
- Horno (Rogow) , since 2003 a new settlement for the village of Horno near Jänschwalde , which has been excavated by the opencast mine
- Large bathing house (Wjelike Bóžemysle)
- Great Jamno (Jamne)
- Small bathing house (Małe Bóžemysle) with the living space forester's bathing house (Bóžemyslańska Gólnikaŕnja)
- Little Jamno (Małe Jamne)
- Mulknitz (Małksa)
- Naundorf (Glinsk) with the Neu Sacro (Nowy Zakrjow) residential area
- Sacro (Zakrjow)
South of the Sorbian village Altforst with the Marienkirche, a merchant's settlement with Nikolaikirche was formed around 1150 at the transition of the important west-east road from Halle to Glogau (Salzstrasse) over the Neisse, from which the regularly laid out 14th century church has been formed since around 1265 first developed as such a city, for the prosperity of which the north-south road from Guben to Niederlausitz later became important. The council could acquire the lower courts.
In 1352 Katharina von Ileburg received the rule of Forst from the Bohemian (and Roman-German) King Charles IV as Margrave of Lower Lusatia . Since 1380, the Biebersteiners sat at the castle west of the Mühlgraben as vassals of the Lower Lusatia margravate, mostly in connection with the rule of Pförten , which held a preferred position as a free class rule in the state constitution . They stayed there until the noble family with Ferdinand II died out in 1667. In 1428 Ulrich, Wenzel and Friedrich von Bieberstein confirmed the town charter. After the Reformation in the 16th century, the Sorbian vernacular was also used in Forst . Four of the seven mayors of this century had Sorbian names. In 1626, during the Thirty Years' War, the general Wallenstein and his troops occupied Forst. With Niederlausitz, the city fell to the Electorate of Saxony in 1635 .
The cloth-making trade, which has been privileged since 1418, shaped the city's economy; since 1628 it received influx from cloth-makers from the Netherlands and the towns of Lissa , Meseritz and Fraustadt from the province of Posen , so that in 1695 the guild numbered 50 masters. In 1704, Duchess Luise Elisabeth von Sachsen-Merseburg took her widow's seat in Forst. In 1746, Count Heinrich von Brühl acquired the state lordship of Forst and reunited it with gates. In 1748 a great fire ravaged the city. The reconstruction was carried out according to plans by Brühl and master builder Johann Christoph Knöffel . After 1750, as the owner of Forst, the count set up a cloth and linen manufacture in Jahn Castle. In 1763 Count Heinrich von Brühl was buried under the baptismal font of the town church.
Around 1800 the Sorbian church services in Forst were abolished as a result of the Germanization policy pursued by the sovereigns. In 1815 Forst came to Prussia through the Peace of Vienna and was assigned to the Brandenburg district of Sorau in the Frankfurt administrative district. In 1821 the merchant Jeschke built the first spinning factory on the castle grounds. In 1832 the first Forster newspaper appeared. In 1837 the municipality and the municipality were united. The production of Buckskin since 1840 and the introduction of the steam engine in 1844 made Forst one of the most important textile cities (“German Manchester ”).
The gas factory began operations in 1863, the city slaughterhouse opened in 1888 and the waterworks in 1903. In 1875 the village of Altforst was incorporated. The grammar school was established in 1880 and the weaving school in 1891. In the same year, a devastating flood hit the city. With industrialization, the number of inhabitants rose from 2,600 in 1830 to 32,000 in 1900. In 1872 the rail connection to Cottbus and Sorau was established , in 1891 to Weißwasser and 1904 to Guben . The first parties were formed at the end of the 19th century (in 1871 the local Social Democratic Workers' Association and the local branch of the SDAP ). In 1897 the city of Forst left the Sorau district and formed its own urban district .
In 1922 the Great Neißebrücke was built, and in 1932 the river was regulated. In 1937, the city celebrated the 450th anniversary of the royal company of the Forster Rifle Guild. The synagogue , which the Jewish community built at Wasserstraße 6 at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries , was desecrated by SA men on the night of the pogrom in 1938 . It was saved from burning down by the deed of a firefighter, but it was destroyed in the war in 1945 and the rubble was removed later. A memorial plaque on the house in Cottbuser Straße 8 has been commemorating this event since 1988. In 1939, the construction of the Forst-Scheuno explosive chemical plant in the Forst-Scheuno district (today Brożek ) began.
From mid-February 1945 the Soviet army had formed a bridgehead on the other bank of the Neisse. The bombardment of the city began on February 25th. The city's defense lasted until April. From April 16 to 18, Soviet troops captured the town of Forst. When the fighting ended, 85 percent of the city was in ruins. The areas east of the Neisse (Berge district) were placed under Polish administration and almost completely devastated , and the inhabitants were expelled. A little more than 350 people lived on the Polish side in 2010.
In 1952, Forst received the status of a district town ( Kreis Forst ) in the Cottbus district . In 1964, all Forster textile companies were merged to form VEB Tuchfabriken Forst . With around 3,000 workers in the textile industry, Forst was also an important textile location in the GDR. Numerous new buildings were constructed in the city center in the 1970s and 1980s. With the change in the GDR in 1989, a restructuring of the municipal infrastructure began . In 1993, Forst became the district town of the Spree-Neisse district. In 2002 the German-Polish border bridge Forst- Zasieki ("Bridge of the European Union") was opened. In 2004 Forst was awarded the title City of Roses .
The information from 1820 is an estimate, then census results (¹) or official updates from the State Statistical Office. From 1843 the information relates to the “local population”, from 1925 to the resident population and since 1966 to the “population at the place of the main residence”. Before 1843, the number of inhabitants was determined according to inconsistent survey methods.
The figures given were prepared by the Berlin-Brandenburg Statistics Office or its forerunners and therefore only take into account the area covered, i.e. the territory of the city as far as it belongs to Brandenburg today. Therefore, the former Forster city area east of the Neisse, which came to Poland in 1945, is excluded from consideration. If this were included, the city's population before 1945 would be significantly higher. In the official statistics of the German Reich at the time of the census on June 16, 1933, 37,768 inhabitants were determined for the city of Forst; At the time of the census on May 17, 1939, the town of Forst had 44,802 inhabitants.
The population is shrinking steadily.

In 2006, Reinfeld was accused of nepotism across factions and a referendum was initiated to vote him out, which was successful on October 8, 2006 with an approval rate of 85%. On February 18, 2007, Jürgen Goldschmidt was elected as the new mayor in a runoff election with 57.4% of the valid votes, after missing the required majority on January 28, 2007 with 45.8%.

The Brandenburg Textile Museum Forst is a technology and local history museum that was opened in 1995 in a disused, heritage-protected cloth factory. The focus of the exhibition is the history of the cloth-making trade and thus closely linked to the history of the city of Forst.
The city is known far beyond the country's borders because of the East German rose garden . Traditionally, the rose garden festival takes place on the last weekend in June. Every year in spring, the Forster rose queen is elected to represent the city and the East German rose garden.
"The green season" opens with the riding and jumping tournament on the cycling track. Every year at Whitsun, a standing race is held on the cycling track .
Economy and Infrastructure
The city has a large number of medium-sized companies, including metal construction and processing companies, logistics companies, manufacturers of building materials and other service providers. There was a brewery with a cider factory until 2015.
Forst is on the B 112 federal road between Guben and the Forst junction on the A 15 ( Spreewald triangle - Forst-Olszyna border crossing). At this junction on the southern city limits, the road continues as the B 115 to Bad Muskau and Görlitz . The state road L 49 (until 2005 B 122 ) between Cottbus and the junction Bademeusel of the A 15 crosses the city in a west-southeast direction.
There is no border crossing to Poland in the city center. The Forst – Zasieki road crossing is about 3 km north of the city center.
The Forst (Lausitz) station is located on the railway line Cottbus Zary (Sorau) . There are regional trains to Cottbus and Żagań (Sagan) . There was freight and passenger traffic on the Forst – Guben railway from 1904 to 1981 and on the Weißwasser – Forst railway from 1896 to 1996. Both lines have now been closed and partially dismantled.
Until the timetable change in December 2014, the Eurocity line EC 99 served Forst station. A pair of trains ran daily from Krakow via Berlin to Hamburg . The entire line was deleted. Since then, Forst is no longer a long-distance stop.
Since May 2016, the cultural train has been running on the weekend from Berlin to the European Capital of Culture 2016 Wroclaw via Forst, which will once again offer a temporary long-distance train stop.

Forst has several elementary schools, a high school and a high school. This was developed into a European school that offers various student exchange programs as well as bilingual classes. The Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Gymnasium bears the title “School without Racism” and has a cultural-aesthetic profile.
The Forst Radrennbahn , which was inaugurated on June 17, 1906, is one of the oldest in Germany. Numerous standing races are held here every year. The European champion in the standing category has also been ridden in Forst. On 29./30. August 2009 the European Standing Championships took place again in Forst. The cycling track has meanwhile also been expanded to be used for equestrian sports, so that an annual riding and jumping tournament with international participation takes place. The stadium at the water tower was opened in 1921.
Forst also has a great tradition in football. The Askania Forst and Viktoria Forst were in the 1910s and 1920s in the championship finals of the DFB . The TV 1861 Forst became soccer champion of the German gymnastics union in 1927 . The TuS South Forest was 1919 and 1926 in the finals of the ATSB -Fußballmeisterschaft. The SV Süd Forst and the SV Rot-Weiß Forst association formed the SV Lausitz Forst association in 2011. The football teams from Forst are currently playing in the lower leagues.
The Lusatian sea sports team is one of the most powerful clubs of this sport in the sea sports all-around competition and has repeatedly provided German champions, especially in the female age groups, in recent years. This sport has been practiced in Forst since the 1960s.
An extensive network of cycle paths in the vicinity of the city enables large and small tours by bike. The Neißeauen are interesting and appealing, but so is the Niederlausitz hinterland.
