|Location of the city of Haltern am See in the Recklinghausen district|
Haltern am See (until 2001 holders is) a medium-sized district town in the north of Recklinghausen in the administrative district of Münster in North Rhine-Westphalia . The city lies on the northern edge of the Ruhr area and at the same time on the southern edge of the Münsterland . The core city is located immediately north of the Lippe and thus in the historical area of the bishopric of Münster ; However, some districts in the south are to the left of the Lippe and historically belonged to Vest Recklinghausen . However, these parts can also be naturally assigned to the Westmünsterland .
Embedded in the Hohe Mark-Westmünsterland Nature Park , Haltern is surrounded by forest areas and has few industrial settlements. The Haltern reservoir and the forest areas of Haard , Borkenberge and Hohe Mark are used as popular local recreation areas. Only since 1929 has the core area of the municipality, which has had city rights since the 13th century, been part of the Recklinghausen district and thus nominally part of the Ruhr area.
The Lippe and its tributary, the Stever , flow through Haltern am See and, together with the lake, frame the core city area to the southeast. The Haltern Reservoir and the Hullern Dam, which adjoins it a little further to the east , with its tributaries Stever and Mühlenbach , the sailing port and the seaside resort, are the destination of many people seeking relaxation. The extensive forests of the Haard , the Hohen Mark and the Borkenberge (also grouped under the Halterner Berge ), as well as the nature reserves Westruper , Holtwicker and Sebbelheide, are made accessible by a dense network of hiking, cycling, riding and walking trails.
The highest point at 145.9 m above sea level. NN is the Waldbeerenberg in the Hohen Mark with the telecommunications tower ; the lowest point is the Lippetal in Hamm-Bossendorf at 33.8 m above sea level. NN .
The urban area is divided into the districts (in brackets the population on December 31, 2019), followed by the associated hamlets:
- Haltern-Mitte (19,670); with the mountain keepers (formerly Holtwick farmers) who grew up in the core town in the extreme south-west
- Sythen (6,345); with clay brakes, Uphusen, Stockwiese; the Sythener End in the extreme northeast has belonged to Hausdülmen since 1975
- Lippramsdorf (3,596); with Freiheit, Eppendorf, the younger settlements Mersch and Hagelkreuz and the scattered farmers Kusenhorst in the west
- Hullern (2,386); with settlement Overrath, Westrup, Antrup
- Hamm-Bossendorf (2,081); Bossendorf is now the larger of the two villages
- Flaesheim (1,918); with Westleven
- Lavesum (1,723); with Lochtrup, Ontrup, Strünkede and Granat in the far west
- Holtwick (945); with Lünzum, Hennewig, the younger settlement on Waldstrasse in the direction of the core city and Bergbossendorf and Annaberg in the extreme south near the lip
The medieval structure of the old town is clearly recognizable, only hidden remains of the building fabric (e.g. town hall, goose market) from this period are preserved. Nevertheless, the image of a typical Münsterland city emerges.
In Flaesheim, the area around the old collegiate church is reminiscent of life a few hundred years ago, while the town centers of Sythen, Lippramsdorf, Hullern and Lavesum are more modern in origin. In Hamm-Bossendorf and Holtwick there is no central town center.
Haltern borders on Datteln , Dorsten , Dülmen , Lüdinghausen , Marl , Oer-Erkenschwick , Olfen and Reken .
The spatial location is as follows:
Olfen , 14 km from
Lüdinghausen , 18 km
Oer-Erkenschwick , Recklinghausen
13 km, 15 km
Ancient and Roman rule
Along the Lippe, the Romans repeatedly moved from the west into the Westphalian hinterland and set up military camps in Holsterhausen , Haltern , Beckinghausen , Oberaden and Anreppen . The plan to make Germania a Roman province failed in 9 AD with the Varus Battle and finally in 16 AD with Tiberius' renunciation of the submission of Germania on the right bank of the Rhine after the unsuccessful Germanicus campaigns . All Lippelager, including the one in Haltern, were closed. In what is now the city of Haltern there were several partly fortified camps and forts as well as a port on the Lippe. The former Roman fort Aliso is believed to be in the Roman camp in Haltern. Many finds from this time are exhibited in the nationally important Westphalian Roman Museum in Haltern.
On February 3, 1289, what was then Halteren received the lower town charter from its sovereign and Prince-Bishop of Münster, Everhard von Diest , and thus the right to build a city wall from which the Siebenteufelsturm has still been preserved. The course of the old ramparts can be guessed from the small ring-shaped ramparts around the city center (streets outside the former ramparts: Alisowall, Schüttenwall, etc.). A flood at the turn of the year 1569/1570 caused the Lippe to leave its bed and take its current course, 900 meters south of the city center.
In addition to many other cities in Westphalia , Haltern was also a member of the Hanseatic League , from the 14th century to 1611. The activities of Haltern citizens in the Hanseatic League of Commerce can be traced back even further. Today Haltern is a member of the International Hanseatic League of the Modern Era and the Westphalian Hanseatic League, which revived the Hanseatic League with their re-establishment in the 1980s.
In a widely acclaimed witch trial , Bernhard Schwarte , Kötter from the Westrup peasantry, was the victim of the witch hunt in Lüdinghausen in 1624 .
At the time of the occupation by Napoleon in the early 19th century, Flaesheim had a central administrative office , comparable to today's district administration.
Industrialization and the post-war period
In 1963, Shaft 8 of the Auguste Victoria colliery was sunk in the Lippramsdorf district . It was one of the last operated shafts in the Ruhr mining industry , closed on December 18, 2015. Shaft 9 of the facility, which went into operation near Haltern-Eppendorf in 1990, was used for ventilation . In 1980, the Haltern 1 and Haltern 2 shafts of the Blumenthal / Haard mine were sunk in the Haard forest area . Until 2006 they were mainly used for rope travel .
Since 1908 there has been a pumping station in Haltern for pumping drinking water. Water production has been steadily expanded and reached its provisional endpoint with the completion of Lake Hullern in 1985.
In the 21st century
Since December 1, 2001, Haltern officially bears the name Haltern am See .
On March 24, 2015, 16 students and two teachers from the city's Joseph-König-Gymnasium were killed in the crash of the Germanwings flight 9525 over the French Alps.
On January 1, 1975 the previously independent communities Flaesheim, Hullern, parish Haltern (mostly) and Lippramsdorf (mostly) were incorporated. The eastern part of the dissolved community of Hamm was added.

Administration by the state government's savings commissioner
Due to severe over-indebtedness and calculation errors in the course of Haltern's participation in the so-called NRW Strengthening Pact for financially weak municipalities, the North Rhine-Westphalian state government appointed a savings commissioner for Haltern in August 2017 , who is to monitor the municipality's budget and spending policy on behalf of the state. Because of this rarely occurring measure, the city can no longer fully administer itself and is one of the few municipalities in its decisions under direct state supervision .
coat of arms
Blazon : "A stylized silver halter with a gold buckle in blue."
Declaration of coat of arms: The coat of arms of the city of Haltern am See today is a halter . The model for the design of the coat of arms was a relief attached to the old town hall from 1577, which shows a halter on a shield. On the seals of older documents, next to the shield with the halter, there is a shield bearer, including the patron of the Haltern parish church, Pope Sixtus II. The shield bearers were not included in today's coat of arms. There is no meaningful connection between the halter as a coat of arms and the place name Haltern.
