Location of Großörner in Mansfeld

Großörner is a district of Mansfeld and is located in the Mansfelder Land in Saxony-Anhalt . It has about 1900 inhabitants.


Großörner was already settled from the 3rd to the 6th century. On the outskirts of Hettstedt , gold rings, bracelets and a horse snaffle with gold sheet and silver were found as grave attachments from that time. The first written mention of the place relates to the year 973. In the year 1260 there was a transfer of ownership in the area around Großörner: “Bishop Volrath zu Halberstadt left the monastery [zum Kupferberg] with 2 Hufen land, one in Großörner and one in Kleinörner. [..] The Counts of Mansfeld transfer the property (later called Engelgarten) and accessories to Caspar Röder from Großörner as patron of the Oberwiederstedt monastery as a free inheritance. ” At the end of the 17th century, Großörner came into the Property of the von Pfuel family , who had also been in the possession of the Eisleben District Office from 1664 until they sold it to the Electoral Saxon state in 1798.

In the vicinity of Großörner there was a copper-silver smelter in which the extracted copper was desilvered from 1824 using mercury. Today the hut is operated by Mansfelder Kupfer & Messing GmbH and the fortunes of the place are still determined by copper extraction.

From 1936 a new residential area was developed and in 1939 the public mill bath was built. In Großörner all silver was extracted from Mansfeld copper shale in a volume of around 11,000 tons up to 1990. In the 1970s, a gym was built in the village, which was converted into a multi-purpose hall between 2004 and 2005 .

On January 1, 2005, Großörner was incorporated into the city of Mansfeld.
