Naitschau is a district of Langenwetzendorf in the Greiz district in Thuringia .


The district is located between Greiz, Zeulenroda and Triebes on the federal road 94 . The district of Naitschau borders on that of Langenwetzendorf. It is located in the Thuringian Slate Mountains .


The district was first mentioned in a document on August 25, 1444.

Once there were two mills on the territory of Naitschau and one in the village:

  • The Leubamühle in Naitschau began operations in 1722. From 1956 it was possible to dispense with the use of water power because a powerful 20 kW motor provided the required output. In 2011 the mill was stopped.
  • The Stöckelsmühle zu Naitschau, first mentioned in a document in 1603, ended work in the grinding and cutting mill in 1930. The building was still inhabited.
  • The Perthelsmühle near Naitschau was only a cutting mill from 1530, which was then expanded to a grinding mill. The miller was once at the same time a teacher with conflicts with the authorities. The timber rafting, introduced around 1652, brought the mill less profit. In 1941 the news came from the front that the hereditary miller's son had died. In 1942 the waterwheel turned for the last time and the mill had to be stopped. The old mill building was rebuilt in 1951.



A farmer is active in the market economy in the agricultural district. There is also an agricultural machinery workshop. Craftsmen and traders have settled here. The place has 441 inhabitants.


The Naitschau State Elementary School is located in the village .
