About this picture

Krummesse is a place southwest of Lübeck , in southeastern Schleswig-Holstein on the Elbe-Lübeck Canal .

Around 7.2  km² of the area belong to the district of Krummesse in the St. Jürgen district of the Hanseatic city of Lübeck , which has a good 1000 inhabitants. The rest of the 10.62  km² area is one of the eleven municipalities of the Berkenthin office in the north of the Duchy of Lauenburg . However, these surfaces are not separated from one another, but are often interlocked with one another. In extreme cases, the municipal boundaries go straight through the house. Krummesse is therefore also considered to be the municipality with the longest border in Germany when it is related to the total area.

Around 1700 inhabitants live in the municipality of Krummesse, so that the village has a total of around 2700 inhabitants. The village image has widened more and more in the past decades, starting from a rather agricultural, elongated street village through the development of numerous new building areas. Krummesse has a kindergarten, its own elementary and community school, shops, several doctors, volunteer fire brigade and a direct connection to the bus services of the city of Lübeck . The center of Krummesse forms the intersection of Hauptstrasse and Beidendorfer Weg, around this intersection are essentially the above-mentioned facilities.


Memorial stone in memory of the 800th anniversary of Krummesse in 1994

The village was mentioned for the first time in a document from the Bishop of Ratzeburg on April 3, 1194. Along with Krummesse Castle, it was the seat of the Knights of Crummesse who immigrated to Northern Elbe around 1200.

Some family members of the Knights of Crummesse began to sell parts of their possessions to the council of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck in the middle of the 14th century.

To this day, the sale of half the village by Marquard von Crummesse to the Lübeck merchant and councilor Segebodo (III.) Crispin in 1379/80 is the reason for the separation of the village into a Lübeck and a Lauenburg part with the complicated demarcation.

Gut Krummesse, whose courtyard buildings were a bit away from the village on the left bank of the Stecknitz , owned together with Kronsforde and Niemark from 1618 to 1759 by members of the von Brömbsen family , most recently the Lübeck mayor Andreas Albrecht von Brömbsen . His heirs sold it to the Hanseatic city of Lübeck.

Location of the Krummesse district (13) in the St. Jürgen district

An exchange of territory between the Hanseatic city of Lübeck and the municipality of Krummesse, announced in December 2005, the first since 1937, did not remove the complicated demarcation, but at least the beginning of an understanding was discernible. As a result of the area swap, Lübeck gained an area of ​​6.131  hectares of arable land in addition to the urban area, the Lauenburg community received the necessary planning areas in the center.

Buildings and sights


The list of cultural monuments in Krummesse includes the cultural monuments entered in the list of monuments of Schleswig-Holstein.

The Krummesser Johanniskirche was built in 1230, it is one of the few two-aisled churches in Schleswig-Holstein. If a couple gets married there, the bride and groom must separate because of the pillars in the walk to the altar.

The Krummesser Canal Bridge was built in 1900 and demolished in the summer of 2006 in order to build a new, higher bridge that enables better shipping traffic on the Elbe-Lübeck Canal . The new bridge, which was completed in 2008, has two lanes and its dimensions were initially controversial.

The lock on the Elbe-Lübeck Canal from 1900 is operated according to the Hotopp principle using only water power.

The Brömbsenmühle is a historic water mill.
