About this picture

Naundorf is an administrative community-free municipality in the district of North Saxony in Saxony .

Geography and traffic

The community is located south of Oschatz and southeast of the Collmberg on the Döllnitz river . The neighboring towns are Oschatz (4 km), Riesa (15 km) and Mügeln (5 km). The federal highway 6 runs north and the federal highway 169 runs east of the municipality.



Naundorf was first mentioned in a document in 1241. Like many others, the area suffered in the Thirty Years' War . A document from 1656 notes that in 1637 the entire village of Zöschau was cremated by the soldiers and that the inhabitants were beaten by the choking angel, the plague, so that everything became a wasteland .

The district of Casabra was affected by the persecution of witches from 1665 to 1666 . Georg Pfütze, old and weak, got involved in a witch trial on charges of superstitious courier . The condemnation of perpetual expulsion from the country was converted into use in the fortress construction in Dresden.
