Koldingen is a district of the Lower Saxony city ​​of Pattensen in the Hanover region .


The place is located in the Calenberger Land 3 km east of Pattensen and 15 km south of Hanover directly on the Leine and is connected to the city center of Pattensen as well as to the neighboring town of Laatzen to the east via the federal road B 443 .


The place is first mentioned in a document in 1253. Old names of the place are around 1220 Callegen, 1222–1227 Coldegen, around 1230 Coldege, 1298 (A. 14th century) Koldincgen and 1330–1352 Koldegen.

In the 13th or 14th century, Koldingen Castle was built as a moated castle to secure the Leine crossing. In the years from 1372 to 1380, the castle was converted into an official palace by the bishops of Hildesheim . After the Hildesheim collegiate feud in 1523, Koldingen became welfisch and became the seat of the Koldingen office . On the site of the Coldingen Castle, which was built in the middle of the 15th century, Duke Heinrich Julius had the Koldingen Official House built in 1593 . The office lasted until 1824.

In 1938, farmers were relocated to Koldingen, who had to give way to the construction of the steelworks in Salzgitter, then known as Reichswerke Hermann Göring .

On March 1, 1974, Koldingen was incorporated into the city of Pattensen.

coat of arms

The design of the municipal coat of arms of Koldingen comes from the heraldist and graphic artist Alfred Brecht , who designed all the coats of arms in the Hanover region. The approval of the coat of arms was granted on February 18, 1964 by the district president in Hanover.

Coat of arms of Koldingen
Blazon : " Red  : gold divided by tin cut , above a blue- armored and -tongued , golden lion ( leopard ) looking out , below a red scale ."
Justification of the coat of arms: This two-color coat of arms draws on the history of the town of Koldingen. It brings one of the two leopards from the oldest Guelph coats of arms, at the same time in the shield colors also the reference to longer supremacy of the diocese of Hildesheim . The scales testify to the Coldingen office, which has been granted judicial powers up to the modern age , so that the content of the coat of arms reminds of the significant past of the village, whose population has now grown to over 700 people.
