Early development

Heide market square, drawing around 1895

Heide is mentioned for the first time in 1404 as Uppe de Heyde . According to a chronicle from 1577, the villages Rickelshof, Lohe, Wesseln and Rüsdorf decided in the 14th century to build a chapel - or, according to another source, an inn - at the intersection of their areas. As early as 1434, Heide was mentioned as a meeting place for the peasant republic. In 1447 the Dithmarscher Heide elected the upper court of the forty-eight and secured the status of the place as one of the Dithmarsch main towns next to Meldorf . Up to 12,000 able-bodied men could gather on the 4.6 hectare square for the state assemblies. A St. Jürgen chapel, consecrated to St. George , is attested on its edge as early as 1437 .

On December 10, 1524, the former monk Heinrich von Zütphen , who had come to Meldorf at the invitation of Nicolaus Boie at the end of November to preach Protestant doctrine, was burned on the market square . The Reformation did not take hold until eight years later.

Even if Dithmarschen lost its independence after the last feud in 1559 and Heide was completely destroyed in the process, Heide retained its importance as a trading place and seat of the administration of the Dithmarschen region. The former meeting place now only served as a marketplace. The church, originally made of field stone , was rebuilt from bricks and consecrated again the following year. The tower was added in 1611 and renewed in 1724.

Railway connections

1877 was Heide by the West Holstein Railway Company in Station Heide first railway connections to Neumünster and Tonning , the November 1, 1878 by the integration of Marschbahn to direct connections to Hamburg and ten years later, just after Husum have been extended. From 1905 to 1938 there was the premises of the Norderdithmarschen district railway opposite the station , which opened up the district with two routes.

Political developments

From 1867 to 1971 Heide was the seat of a local court. On July 7, 1870, Heide received city ​​rights . Heide was the district town of the Norderdithmarschen district .

Heide was an early stronghold of National Socialism . In the 1928 Reichstag election , the NSDAP in Heide achieved 12.6 percent. After the so-called Blood Night of Wöhrden by the Nazis, the NSDAP's local branch in Heid recorded a strong increase in membership. In the local elections in 1929, the NSDAP came to 14 percent. In the Reichstag election in 1930 , 33.3 percent of the voters in Heide voted for the NSDAP, in the Reichstag election in July 1932, 50.8 percent.

Despite the absolute majority for the NSDAP in the local elections in 1933 with 57.7 percent, the German national mayor Hermann Hadenfeldt remained in office for the time being. In 1937, however, Hadenfeldt gave up his office prematurely and Karl Herwig was appointed mayor. After the war, the British appointed August Vehrs mayor.

During Operation Gomorrah , the US bombers of the 381st bomb group dropped their bomb load on the afternoon of July 25, 1943 only during their return flight to the North Sea over Heide.

Heide has been the district town of the Dithmarschen district, which was newly created from the Norder- and Süderdithmarschen districts, and prevailed against Meldorf in the election. As early as 1932, the Prussian government merged the Norder- and Süderdithmarschen districts, but made Meldorf the district town. The Nazis reversed the merger in 1933. In September 1967 the places Süderholm and Bennewohld were incorporated at their own request.


On October 9, 1924, the village community of Rüsdorf, which until then belonged to the parish of Weddingstedt , was incorporated. On January 1, 1968, the previously independent municipality of Süderholm was added. This corresponded geographically to the municipality of Süderholm-Bennewohld, which on April 1, 1934 was divided into the new communities of Bennewohld and Süderholm. Bennewohld was incorporated into Süderholm on April 1, 1943.

Population development

The graph shows a typical increase in the number of inhabitants for the region. After the Second World War, Dithmarschen and Eiderstedt (together under 120,000 inhabitants at the time) became the Allied internment area for up to 400,000 Wehrmacht soldiers (restricted area G). During the war and afterwards, a large number of refugees from the former eastern regions of Germany were taken in and permanently settled in Heide.

coat of arms

The municipal coat of arms of Heide was designed by the Brunsbüttel heraldist Willy "Horsa" Lippert and approved on January 31, 1952.

Coat of arms of Heide
Blasonierung : In " Rot a left border , bareheaded, gold hairy , -gegürteter and -gespornter , silver knight on the abdomen of a backward left-, four-legged, wingless, goldäugigen and -pfeilzungigen, silver kite , the right rear claw and tail comprise his right leg, the thrusting a golden spear into the dragon's mouth, on the right accompanied by a fallen golden anchor ringed above and below, on the left by a five-branched, golden-rooted, purple- flowered , green tuft of heather . "
Justification of the coat of arms: The main motif of the coat of arms of the city of Heide is Saint George killing a dragon , called St. Jürgen in northern Germany. In 1434 the representatives of eight Dithmarsch parishes “up de Heyde tho Rusdorpe” (Rüsdorf) met to hold peace talks with Hamburg delegates. This is where the town of Heide developed in the period that followed, especially since the state assemblies of all Dithmarschers took place here and from 1447 the highest court of the state also met here. The chapel, consecrated soon after 1434 and consecrated to St. Jürgen, became a church with its own parish around 1460. This gave the place the right to have its own seal; this reflects the patron saint of the church. Its oldest imprint dates from 1461. As the meeting place for important organs of the state constitution, Heide developed into the center of the Dithmarschen peasant republic. Today's coat of arms goes back to the oldest Heider seal. The focus is on the patron saint, the tuft of heather explains the place name " talking ". The meaning of the anchor is not clear.


In red, the figures of the city's coat of arms are all in white without a shield, accompanied by a narrow white stripe at the top and bottom near the edge.

Town twinning

  • Nowogard in Poland - City Friendship (formerly Naugard)
  • Anklam in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania - friendship between cities
  • Freudenstadt - friendly relations with the large district town in the Black Forest. Freudenstadt is the other city in Germany that claimed to have the largest marketplace in the country. Both cities have now agreed that the marketplaces are the same size, but Heide has the largest undeveloped marketplace in Germany and Freudenstadt the largest built-up marketplace.

Culture and sights


Heide market place 360 ​​° panorama photography

St. Jürgen Church

St. Jürgen Church from the south-east

The light-flooded church stands on the south-west corner of the market square and was built on the foundation walls of the previous building, which was completely destroyed in a fire in 1559. 1694–1696 the building was expanded and in the same century a gallery was added on the north side, on which scenes from the Bible are shown in pictorial representations. In 1724 the church was enlarged to a hall church with a new, wider choir and the tower built in 1611 was redesigned as you can still see it today. A sandstone baptismal font was taken over from the old church. The shrine of a Gothic carved altar on the south wall is presumably composed of two older altars. The pulpit from the time of construction with depictions of scenes from the life of Jesus with inscriptions in Low German comes from the time of the new building, the baroque altar from 1699. Outside the church on the south side there is an atonement stone that was made in pictures and words by one in 1567 Homicide reported.

Old pastorate

Old pastorate

The old pastor's office is located on the south side of the Heider Marktplatz, opposite the St. Jürgen Church. The building was built in 1739 by Johann Georg Schott.

Today the Protestant church office is located there.


The city has the largest undeveloped market square in Germany (4.7  ha ). The traditional weekly market has been held here for over 500 years. It is the former meeting place of the state assembly of the free and independent peasant republic Dithmarschen (1447–1559). 48 regents met every Saturday, created laws, issued justice, levied penalties, received or sent embassies.

Water tower

The Heider water tower , built in 1903 and completely renovated in 2004, with the wedding room of the Heider registry office is worth seeing.

Cultural monuments


Museum Island Lüttenheid

The Lüttenheid Museum Island is not far from the market square in the former Lüttenheid craftsmen's quarter. Since 2004 the area has housed the Heider Heimatmuseum and the Klaus Groth Museum .

The focus of the Heider Heimatmuseum is on the founding time of Heide at the time of the Dithmarsch peasant republic and the Heider world in the 19th and 20th centuries. This is illustrated by numerous original objects.

The Klaus Groth Museum is the birthplace of the poet Klaus Groth (1819–1899), who is considered the most important Low German poet. The family's former miller business was converted into a museum in memory of the poet in 1914 after the city bought and completely renovated the dilapidated building. Furthermore, the furnished house gives an impression of the living conditions of the 19th century.

Brahms house

At the Brahms House (after Johannes Brahms ) you can find a plaque under the gable on the front with a reference to the Brahms family, who owned the house from 1819 to 1887. The Brahms Society Schleswig-Holstein, founded in 1987, has created a place of remembrance for the composer here. The house is a cultural attraction and houses an exhibition and a library with literature on Johannes Brahms. Concerts, lectures and courses as well as the planning for the award of the Brahms Prize also take place here.

Fichtenhain Racecourse

For the trotting races of the Ditmarsia trotting club, founded on March 4, 1904, a 500-meter-long trotting track was built, which was inaugurated on June 16, 1907. In 1924, the Traberclub, together with the newly founded Dithmarscher Automobil-Club (DAC), decided to build an automobile and motorcycle racing track, which was completed after just seven weeks of construction and was one of the most modern and fastest autodromes in Europe. "The track was 1250 m long, 10-12 m wide and had a curve superelevation of 45-50 degrees". Up until 1932, eighteen races in various automobile and motorcycle classes took place on this oval track, some as German championships. The track record held by Soenius on the Fichtenhain racecourse is 143.2 km / h.
