About this picture
Vogelsdorf village church

Fredersdorf-Vogelsdorf is a municipality in the Märkisch-Oderland district in Brandenburg . It emerged in 1993 from the formerly independent communities of Fredersdorf and Vogelsdorf .

Community structure

Three districts are identified for the community of Fredersdorf-Vogelsdorf:

  • Fredersdorf North
  • Fredersdorf South
  • Vogelsdorf

In addition, there is the living space at the Fredersdorf colony.

The Fredersdorfer Mühlenfließ separates Fredersdorf Süd from Vogelsdorf. Fredersdorf Nord is separated from Fredersdorf Süd by the Ostbahn .


In 1376 the villages of Fredersdorf and Vogelsdorf were first mentioned in the land register of Emperor Charles IV . The few rural residents were plagued by wars and diseases several times between the 15th and 17th centuries, and their houses and churches were destroyed. In 1710 and 1714 the villagers rebuilt their stone churches. In 1712, Siegmund von Görtzke had a manor with a manor ("Fredersdorf Castle") built. The von Görtzke , von Podewils , Henry , Torganey , Verdrieß, von Bothe and Bohm families appeared as landowners in the two villages .

In 1835 Carl Gottlob Bohm acquired the Fredersdorfer Mühle. From around 1840 onwards, he continued to expand his business in Fredersdorf, an iron foundry and a machine factory were built next to the mill. In his factory he built machines for smoothing marble or for mining. The best known was the participation in the construction of the Berlin Victory Column . Bohm later switched his company to manufacturing equipment for making spirits. He accelerated the development of the place. He bequeathed the factory to his sons Paul Bohm (Schloss-Bohm) and Otto Bohm (Fabrik-Bohm). After the Second World War , the castle and estate owner Paul Bohm and the factory owner Otto Bohm were expropriated. The castle was used by Soviet troops for military exercises until 1962 and was demolished in 1990. Today the senior citizens' home "Katharinenhof im Schloßgarten" is located here.

In 1867 the Eastern Railway was completed. On September 15, 1872, the Petershagen station (renamed Fredersdorf in 1875 ) opened, which also gave Fredersdorf and Vogelsdorf a connection to the German railway network and began industrial and economic growth. Fredersdorf built a new town hall for his local government in 1937.

In 1957 a small area of Altlandsberg (Altlandsberg-Süd) was included in the community of Fredersdorf. In 1993 the previously independent villages merged to form the community of Fredersdorf-Vogelsdorf with a total population of around 7,000. Since then, the population has grown by around 85 percent.

Fredersdorf and Vogelsdorf belonged to the Niederbarnim district in the province of Brandenburg since 1816 and to the Strausberg district from 1952 (until 1990 in the GDR district of Frankfurt (Oder) , 1990–1993 in the state of Brandenburg ). Since the district reform in 1993 , the community has been in the Märkisch-Oderland district .
