Neuses bei Coburg (officially Neuses b.Coburg ) is a north-western district of the Upper Franconian city ​​of Coburg . The town, first mentioned in 1289, has a population of almost 1,700 and covers an area of ​​2.74 km². Neuses borders on the Coburg core city and the Coburg districts of Beiersdorf and Bertelsdorf .

On April 1st, 2009 Neuses had 1673 inhabitants, which results in a population density of 611 inhabitants per km². Neuses has the character of a settlement like a suburb.


The first written mention of Neuses is dated to 1289. The place name at that time "Nvesez" or "Niusez" should mean "new seat", probably in the sense of "knightly residence". In 1346 Neuses came into the possession of Count Heinrich von Henneberg and his wife Jutta through an exchange of goods . At the beginning of the 17th century the Rosenauer owned the estate. The Thirty Years War hit Neuses very hard; after the end of the war there were only two houses left in 1638. The estate changed hands several times with Peter Popp, a ducal chamber clerk, the Nattermann family and Ratsmedicus Fischer. From the Fischer family, Neuses came into the possession of the poet Friedrich Rückert (1788–1866) in 1839 , who from 1848 onwards stayed in Neuses permanently.

The village of Neuses developed along what was then the main street (now Friedrich-Rückert-Straße), which ran in north-south direction, with Goldbergstraße as a north-western junction. The village was bounded to the west by the Lauterbach, the southern border is at the confluence of the Sulzbach in the Lauterbach. Three mills used to be in operation on Lauterbach. The church is located about in the middle of the old village on Friedrich-Rückert-Straße, next to it is the school. To the west, the former manor and the Rückert-Park adjoin Friedrich-Rückert-Straße.

Neuses was incorporated into Coburg on July 1, 1934 with 1329 inhabitants and 275 hectares of parish area.



In 1934/35 the Wehrmacht built an army provisions store for the Coburg barracks in Neuses on the railway line to Rodach . On April 8, 1945, the camp was set on fire by an SA Oberscharführer before the approaching US troops. Today BayWa is based on the site.

From 1986 to 1988 a waste-to-energy plant was built in Neuses for waste disposal in the districts of Coburg , Kronach , Lichtenfels and the city of Coburg.

The Sea-Star aquarium , which opened in 2001, was located in Neuses . It had a population of around 3200 specimens from 650 species. It was closed in September 2011.
