Location of Löderburg in Saxony-Anhalt

Löderburg is a town in the town of Staßfurt in the Salzlandkreis in the Magdeburg Börde in Saxony-Anhalt , with around 2,900 inhabitants . Löderburg is 34 kilometers south of Magdeburg and 58 kilometers north of Halle . First mentioned in a document in 1170, Löderburg never made a big impression. The place has been a parish since 1600 when it merged with Athensleben . Löderburg became known for the large salt and coal mining in the region. Today Löderburg is the second largest district of the city of Staßfurt, with an area of ​​19.84 km² and a population of 2896 people. The place is on the Bode and has two transitions above it.

Geography and geology

City of Staßfurt in the Salzland district

Löderburg is about 3.5 km to the north-west of the city center and about 1 km from the exit of Staßfurt. As a result of the mining, which continued into the 1950s, numerous lakes were created (some with artificial water levels), which now shape the face of the place. At the site, the Bode runs in a south-east direction. This river has its source in the Harz and flows into the Saale near Nienburg . The district road 1303 establishes connections to the state road 71 , which is only about 1 km from the village and leads to the state roads 70 and 50 in Atzendorf .

Löderburg is located on the Bode in the fertile Magdeburger Börde and is therefore surrounded by agricultural land. A narrow forest area stretches along the banks of the Bode. Around Löderburg lie Lust and Athensleben in the north, Neu Staßfurt in the east, Atzendorf and Förderstedt in the northeast and Staßfurt in the south. All surrounding places belong to the urban area of ​​Staßfurt in the Salzlandkreis.

Water connections


Löderburg is located directly to the east on the Bode . The place has a traffic crossing towards Löderburger See and a pedestrian crossing on Thie. The Bode was also one of the main reasons for the settlement and the subsequent development of the place. The weirs of Staßfurt-Nord and Rothenförde are located near the village .


Löderburg has several lakes such as the Laake, the Salzteich, the Kreuzteich and the Seemann which emerged from the former opencast mines around Löderburg, as these filled with water after they were closed. In addition, there is the Löderburger See which has been converted into a tourist center; all other lakes are used as fishing lakes; all lakes are pure freshwater lakes, since only coal was mined in the pits.


The average annual precipitation in Löderburg is around 500 mm. Measured against the overall German average, this is considered low; this occurs because the place is still in the rain shadow of the Harz Mountains . The driest month is March, the wettest month is January. The warmest month is July, according to the statistics, the coolest month is January, with 7 hours of sunshine in June and July, the average is around 3.9 hours per day.

Löderburg has a temperate climate all year round with cool winters, warm summers and mild menopause.


the province of Saxony in Prussia 1815-1945

Löderburg was first mentioned in documents in 1170 AD; at this time the Ludwigsburg near Löderburg was built, which later gave the place its name; the place also had a church and a rectory . Around 1600 Löderburg took over the administration of Athensleben , which at that time was a small place of fishermen and merchants. This later led to a merger of the places and thus to a common local lord. After the Thirty Years' War , around 46 taxable persons and their families lived in Löderburg, who largely consisted of farmers and craftsmen. At the time, there were few connections with other locations as the area was surrounded by large swamps. In 1726 and 1748 major fires broke out in Löderburg, which spread to several buildings and even the evangelical church of the community, but no one was killed.

On May 5, 1809, Ferdinand von Schill , on the way from Dessau to Dodendorf near Magdeburg , moved through Löderburg with his department of the Magdeburg garrison. There the battle of Dodendorf began . Full of zest for action, Schill joined the Löderburg citizen Heyer, who from then on did not return to Löderburg. Heyer is today's namesake for Heyerstraße am Thie in Löderburg. In 1815 Löderburg belonged to the Prussian Province of Saxony , which had a border between the area and the Province of Anhalt in the immediate vicinity . In 1861 there were already 852 residents in Löderburg.

In 1877 the district of Thie was geographically and politically connected to Löderburg via a dam, which led to Löderburg having the first village school located on the Thie.

In 1848 construction began on the first lignite works in Löderburg; At that time, around 1,050 residents lived here. After the great boom through the salt pits and the potash factory, the population of Löderburg grew very quickly, in 1880 there were already 1918 inhabitants, and the first fire brigade in Löderburg was founded by Alexander von Boremsky. And in 1900 the population grew to 5,500 people. The upswing also brought infrastructural advantages, the first real school in the community was built, a community administration was established and an inn was founded in Löderburg. But after the closure of the salt mines and coal pits, the number of inhabitants decreased again, in 1926 there were only 4200 inhabitants and 3,785 inhabitants in 1928. In 1885 the construction of the first solid roads began in Löderburg and in 1900 there was a connection to the Staßfurt tram leading to Staßfurt , but operations were discontinued in 1957. In 1945, due to the shortage of coal, more and more options for coal mining were developed in the open- cast lignite mine near Löderburg; This location was important when, for example, jogging chutes and conveyor belts were first used and were already in use around 1939, and the introduction of the short-walled wall construction (1944) and the GDR's first ascending chain conveyor in the short- walled wall (1951) began here. In 1952 the opencast mine was closed due to insufficient taxes. As a result of a mining accident in 1935, a wooden cross was erected in memory of the miners, but after a few years it fell apart and on April 26, 2004 a new 7.5 m high steel cross was erected at the exit towards Lust. After the closure, lakes were created in the pits, which are now used as fishing lakes; the largest lake is the Löderburger See which is about 400 m outside of Löderburg and is used as a bathing lake.

On July 1, 1950, the previously independent municipality Athensleben was incorporated.

As a result of the GDR era, new infrastructural places emerged in Löderburg, such as the large residential area with the prefabricated prefabricated buildings typical of the GDR , the sports field, a day-care center or school after-school care center, a department store that still stands today, but has been replaced by the NP market that was built right next to it and a secondary school , which is now used as a block of flats, and a community center, which is also used as a target practice center for the shooting club and as a voting location for local, state and federal elections. In the course of a regional reform in Saxony-Anhalt, Löderburg lost its status as an independent municipality on March 1, 2003 and has been part of the city of Staßfurt since then . The villages of Athensleben, Lust and Rothenförde also belonged to the former municipality of Löderburg, but they continue to bear the Löderburg coat of arms. From 2007 the extensive renovation program of the state of Saxony-Anhalt Stark-III ran in Löderburg, in which all streets of the core town were renovated and funding for private facade renovations was provided. Extensive renewals of the DSL lines in the core location have been taking place since 2017, which are being replaced by so-called fiber optic broadband lines by the subsidiary GlasCom of the regional natural gas and electricity provider EMS.

Name development

The name development of Löderburg can be traced back to the Ludwigsburg, on which the noble Ludwig ruled and thus led to the development of the place. This resulted in the following names, which were always based on the German spelling.

  • 1170 - Luderdeborch
  • 1180 - Luderdeburg
  • 1658 - Lödderburgk, Loderdeburgk, Loderburg, Loederburg
  • since 1700 - Löderburg

Population development

Over time, the population development of Löderburg has always been based on historical events, such as around the 20th century when a large increase in the number of inhabitants was noted shortly before, which can be attributed to the mining situation, or the resulting decline the closure of the mines and opencast mines.

Meaning of the coat of arms

Seal mark community Löderburg

The ears of wheat on the coat of arms are supposed to symbolize agriculture , which was mainly based on grain in the early days of the company , the fish stands for the fishing lakes around Löderburg with their fish population.

Subordinate local and community parts


Löderburg is administratively assigned the three districts Athensleben , Lust and Rothenförde . After the incorporation in Staßfurt these were transferred to Staßfurt at the same time, but they are politically co-administered by Löderburg.

Parish parts


The only part of the municipality of Löderburg is the Thie which takes its name from the Thie public assembly place . The Thie was connected to the former municipality of Löderburg via a dam in 1877, this place is still called Thiedamm today although there is no more dam. Before the union with Löderburg, the Thie was an independent municipality with an administration, a school, a grocery store and a sports hall. The Thie was a meeting place for domestic political decisions of the population. After the connection with Löderburg, the public facilities fell into disrepair and moved to the core town of Löderburg, at this time the open-cast mines around the Thie, which are now small ponds, were built. The Thie has since been recognized as part of the municipality of Löderburg.

Meaning of Thie's for Löderburg

At that time the Thie was a meeting point which later became a municipality. Today the Thie is a large part of the municipality of Löderburg, it has a sports hall in which the "Black Horse Square Dance Club Löderburg" is, and several fishing lakes.

Elections and polling stations

Public elections take place in Löderburg in the community and rifle house Löderburg and the elementary school of Löderburg.
