About this picture

Lohbarbek ( Low German : Lohbarbeek ) is a municipality in the Steinburg district in Schleswig-Holstein .

Geography and traffic

Lohbarbek extends south from Hohenlockstedt to the Stör . The settlement in the northern area of ​​the municipality goes over seamlessly to Hohenlockstedt. The federal highway 206 runs through the area of ​​the municipality.


In 1525 the village was first mentioned as Loobarbeke . Originally, together with Mühlenbarbek , it formed the common village of Berbeke . The name refers to a "stream that flows through a swampy valley or a grove " where "boars or bears are". Grenzbach between Mühlen- and Lohbarbek is in parts of the Ihlenbek , which could be the originally eponymous Berbeke . Count zu Rantzau zu Breitenburg bought the village from the Danish king around 1600. Until 1870 the community belonged to the lordship of Breitenburg .


Community representation

Of the nine seats in the municipal council, the SPD has five, the CDU three and the voter community FWG one seat since the 2008 local elections .

coat of arms

Blazon : "In silver a lowered, oblique left blue wave bar, accompanied above by a frontal, harnessed red ox head, below by a red oak branch consisting of a leaf and two acorns."

Following the interpretation of the name, the community added an oak branch to represent the grove and a blue wavy bar for the stream in its coat of arms. Two of the three heraldic figures refer to the place name "talking". As a farming village, Lohbarbek was characterized by agriculture , in particular livestock farming, which has remained significant to this day. The ox head in the coat of arms represents both the past and the present economic basis of the community.
