About this picture

Müllrose ( Miłoraz in Lower Sorbian ) is an official city in the Oder-Spree district in the state of Brandenburg (Germany). It is the seat of the office of Schlaubetal .


Rose waste is at the northern end of the Schlaube , a glacial resulting melt gutter . The place lies between the small and large Müllroser See . The Schlaube flows into the Kleiner Müllroser See here. Müllrose is considered the “gateway to the Schlaubetal” because of the neighboring Schlaubetal Nature Park with its nature reserves , in which diverse and rare species of flora and fauna occur.

At 14 km, Müllrose is equidistant from both the southwestern district town of Beeskow and the northeastern city of Frankfurt (Oder) .

City structure

The city of Müllrose has no districts as defined by the municipal constitution, but only three inhabited parts of the municipality:

as well as the Katharinensee and Seeschlösschen residential areas.


Garbage Rose Lake with Garbage Rose Mill

Müllrose probably became a Brandenburg-Margravial town around 1260, an assumption which is based on the fact that the town's confirmation document of April 15, 1275 Otto III. named as city founder. In 1258 he owned this part of the Lubusz country alone. On the other hand, at the time of the confirmation document, the city's 10 free years after the founding were no longer mentioned, so they had already expired. Therefore 1265 should be assumed as the latest date for the city's foundation. The "foundation" took place in the context of the medieval German east settlement in the former Slavic settlement area.

In the course of history the place developed into an agricultural town .

Place name

The place name changed over time:

  • 1275 Molrasen
  • 1285 Melraze
  • 1373 Mulraze, Melrase
  • 1377 mattress
  • 1432 Mölrose, Mülrose, Milrace
  • 1444 Melrace, Melrocze, Melrasz and Melracze
  • 1448 Melrose
  • 1558 Garbage Horse
  • 1770 garbage rose

Old documents indicate that the inhabitants obviously adopted the Wendish name of the old settlement from before 1258. The attempt at an interpretation was made again and again and is possibly based on the Old Sorbian , the personal name Milorad stands for "dear, dear, happy". Another interpretation relates to the words “brod, brad” = “ford” and “mel” for “small”, after which Melrad means “small (narrow) ford”.

Middle Ages and Modern Times

In 1275, Müllrose already owned a church with four Hufen land. Between 1275 and 1770 the castle complex existed near the Katharinensee under the name "Häsckenburg". Namesake was the mayor Wilhelm Hase. Large parts of the town of Müllrose and its castle were destroyed by the Hussites in early April 1432 .

From 1444 to around 1665, Müllrose was owned as a noble town by the von Burgsdorff family , whose headquarters were on the site of the “Zur Sonne” inn built in 1774. In 1571 the first school building was mentioned in the church records. Until 1754, Müllrose was subject to the sovereign except for a few properties. The Biegen office was temporarily responsible for the city of Müllrose.

In the Treaty of Müllrose, Emperor Ferdinand I and Elector Joachim II decided in 1558 to build a canal to connect the Oder and Spree . The construction of the first section between Neuhaus an der Spree and Müllrose took place from 1558 to 1564. It was only under Elector Friedrich Wilhelm that construction was continued and completed from Müllrose to Brieskow in 1662–1668 . It was named Friedrich Wilhelm Canal . The canal gave Müllrose a certain economic upturn at times.

In 1771, eight families from the Palatinate founded the Müllrose colony north of Müllrose . The colony was incorporated in 1907. From 1808, Müllrose was an independent city due to the Stein city code . On July 1, 1855, a public savings bank was opened. In 1868 a new school was built, and in 1869 it was connected to the telegraph network . The railway station opened on January 1, 1877. In 1900, the "Müllroser Anzeiger" was printed in its own book printing shop in the village, and there is still a printing shop in Müllrose today . The Müllrose volunteer fire brigade was founded in 1901 and has been providing fire protection and general assistance ever since . With the construction of the tuberculosis sanatorium, the place had a sanatorium from 1907 . The local history museum opened in 1933. During the Second World War , foreign forced laborers had to work in Müllrose. The armaments factories "Speerlager" and Organization Todt had locations in Müllrose. At the end of the war, the mill was used as an air raid shelter when there were bomb alarms . On April 23, 1945, the Wehrmacht blew up the canal bridge when they withdrew. Since it was not completely destroyed, the first Soviet soldiers reached Müllrose on April 24, 1945. The destruction in the city was small in relation to the surrounding places, only the church tower received a shell hit, which caused the church tower clock to stop.

After the end of the Second World War and the founding of the GDR , the state forestry company Frankfurt (Oder) took its seat in Müllrose in 1952 . In 1954 the villa of the expropriated mill owner Schmidt became the children's home "Am See" , this facility existed there until 1995. In 1955 the local history museum was reopened. From 1956 the residents could be treated in the new rural outpatient clinic , which was privatized in 1991. Kaisermühl was incorporated in 1962, Biegenbrück in 1972 and Dubrow in 1974 . The redevelopment program for the town center started in 1992 and the business park was inaugurated in the same year. The office of Schlaubetal was founded in 1993, and since July 14, 2003, Müllrose has been a state-approved resort .

In 2017, the triple murder of a psychopath of his grandmother and two policemen, Müllrose, made headlines across Germany.
