13th Century

Stadtkirche Neustadt, south side
Kremper Street with the Kremper Gate

The advancing settlement in the southern part of Wagrien in the 13th century and the development of the rural hinterland required the establishment of economic centers and access to the Baltic Sea trade. These include the new settlements of Neustadt (as Nighestad von Altenkrempe ) and Kiel , founded by Count Adolf IV von Schauenburg in 1244 . Altenkrempe lies inland on the shallow inland water.

Neustadt (21 hectares of building area) and Kiel (17 hectares) were designed according to the same scheme - similar to that for Lübeck (107 hectares). In the center of the village are the church and the market square, from which right-angled streets lead off. For defense, the settlements were enclosed by a wall and an outer ring of fortifications. When choosing the location, the terrain was used to protect the settlement, for Neustadt the adjacent inland water and its connection to the Baltic Sea, today's port.

The former settlement structure of Neustadt with the town church , the market square and the connecting streets is still largely preserved today. The Grabenstrasse, Waschgrabenallee, Schiffbrücke, "Untere Querstraße", "Am Binnenwasser" and the Haakengraben enclose (clockwise) the former medieval settlement. Of the old town fortifications and the three town gates, only the northern Kremper gate on Haakengraben remains. The other two gates were in the west on the ship bridge with the bridge gate and in the east on the Hochtorstrasse with the high gate.

The founding process is handed down in the old town chronicle in Low German and reads in High German translation: “The honorable prince and his advisors helped to build the streets, houses, the churchyard and market of this town as well as the ring of fortifications around it, and offered the residents of the area that they also dug the moat, which they did. ”Then the count gave the inhabitants his letter, according to which all of them and all descendants should have the Lübsche citizenship.

14th to 16th century

Hospital of the Holy Spirit - building inscription : Hospital foundation: MCCCXLIV (1344) Residential building : MDCCCLIII (1853) by Jacob Lienau
Hospital of the Holy Spirit - residential wing
Hospital Church

In 1344, the Hospital of the Holy Spirit was built on the spar at the ship bridge in front of the city based on the model of the Holy Spirit Hospital in Lübeck . It was used to receive poor and sick pilgrims who were passing through and who were on their way to the Cismar monastery , where they hoped the relics there would have beneficial effects.

The first buildings made of clay walls on the hospital grounds were a large hostel building in 1408 and a smaller, massive hall church ( hospital church ), which still exists today and was extensively renovated in 1990 and 2005. The hostel was not rebuilt in 1627 after being badly damaged by Tilly's troops .

Over time, the hospital developed into a poor house for residents of Neustadt. 1418 it also set up a "Sekenhus" ( hospice for poor and old people) a.

In 1853 a residential wing with 21 apartments for needy citizens was built on the grounds of the hospital through donations from Neustadt citizens, which still exists today. By merging two individual apartments, ten modernized apartments were created in 1987, which are still inhabited by needy citizens of the city today. One apartment was left in its original state as a museum .

The urban development experienced several severe blows of fate, in 1350 the plague raged ; in the years 1391, 1399, 1419 and 1425 fires broke out repeatedly and destroyed entire areas of the city. In 1623 the plague broke out again.

The port of Neustadt was already an important port of call for Dutch and Danish ships during the Hanseatic era . Hanse ships (universi mercatori hanseanum theutonicae) only rarely called at Neustadt port because Neustadt did not belong to the Hanseatic League, although it was right. This made the city interesting for Dutch merchants and for the Vitalienbrüder , because they did not have to observe any stacking rights. The main sources of income for small villages such as Grömitz , which is only 15 kilometers away, were agriculture (supported by the Cismar monastery ) and fishing. Villages like Grömitz also made a modest share in one of the main commercial goods - salted herring in barrels that was exported from Neustadt port. The oldest fishing guild in Germany has existed in Neustadt since 1474 .

In a letter from the Lübeck council of July 26, 1420, the people of Neustadt were accused of being in league with pirates, of providing shelter for 200 pirates and of equipping the pirates' ships. In three days, the pirates captured ten ships with Hanseatic goods. In September 1420 a looted ship from Lübeck lay in Neustadt harbor. In October 1509 the city was robbed by pirates from Lübeck and Travemünde.

17th and 18th centuries

The Frederic III

In 1623 the city was ravaged again by the plague.

Then, in 1638, the beginning of an important shipyard career at the Neustadt location (see Neustädter Schiffswerften ), Berens and Marselis received an order from the Danish King Christian IV on October 27, 1639 to build several warships for the Danish Navy. The large wood requirement for the construction of the ships, a medium-sized warship needed 4,000 full-grown oak trunks, could be covered by the wood-rich hinterland of Neustadt. The largest ship delivered to the Danish Crown was the Frederik III (named after King Friedrich III ), delivered in 1649 , which was armed with 86 to 100 cannons and 500 men.

This development called the Swedish rulers, the potential enemies of the Danish crown, on the scene. During the Torstenson War from 1643 to 1645 , the Swedish troops attacked Neustadt in the spring of 1644 against the fierce resistance of the residents, occupied the city and destroyed the shipyard. The two ships under construction and the many thousands of stored ship planks were taken by the Swedes as spoils of war and brought to the city of Wismar, which was occupied by the Swedes . In July of that year, the Swedish troops were forced to leave Neustadt by the Danes. The hill built by the city was razed before leaving the fleet. The shipyard was rebuilt shortly afterwards and put into operation, in 1647 another warship was delivered to the Danish Crown. In the 1660s Claus Reimers took over the shipbuilding and delivered more ships to Denmark until his death in 1671. For his services to the city, his name was engraved on the large brass chandelier in the city ​​church . His grave slab in the Hospital Church shows that he was only 51 years old. In 1717 the last ship was delivered to the Danish crown.

During the war Neustadt had to pay a Danish war tariff for six years. From August 1675 to 1679, the city had to pay billing and other extraordinary costs. In 1711 the plague returned with devastating consequences. During the Danish War from 1713 to 1720 , the impoverished Neustadters were again charged a high war tariff. In 1750 the city was hit again by a major fire.

On September 28, 1817, another fire broke out, which destroyed the town hall, 129 houses and 128 barns and stables within four hours. In the course of the reconstruction, the city was divided into three quarters: Brückstrasse, Kremperstrasse and Hochthorstrasse quarters. The public buildings included the town hall, the Kremperthor, the Brückenthor and the houses of the bailiff, the porter and the midwife. Neustadt had the following residents and houses during this period:

1973 16,000 2300

At the beginning of the 19th century, the city experienced an economic boom due to the port and grain trade. Between 1828 and 1834 the port facilities were expanded, deepened and renewed. The main trades of the people of Neustadt were grain trade, agriculture and, to some extent, fishing. In particular, the grain trade increased, up to 50,200 tons were exported per year.

The last naval battle of the Schleswig-Holstein uprising before the battle of Idstedt took place on 20/21. July 1850 in the Neustädter Bucht . The Schleswig-Holstein gunboat No. 1 from the Tann sank . After the German-Danish War in 1864, Neustadt came under Austrian rule like all of Holstein, and in 1866 under Prussia .

On May 31, 1866 Neustadt received a rail connection, the Altona-Kieler Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft (AKE) had opened the railway line from Neumünster via Ascheberg to Neustadt .

Neustadt / Pelzerhaken was the location of the intelligence test command since 1923 (intelligence test institute, NVA for short) for the development of radio measurement technology (radar) . In the period from 1964 to 1992, the telecommunications tower M in Neustadt / Pelzerhaken was used for telecommunications and electronic reconnaissance by the naval telecommunications sector 73 .

The Neustadt in Holstein concentration camp was located in Neustadt from December 1944 to May 1, 1945 . The complex was later incorporated into the Provincial Mental Hospital (today AMEOS Clinic).

On May 3, 1945, the former passenger ship Cap Arcona and the smaller Thielbek with prisoners from Neuengamme concentration camp were sunk by Allied aircraft off Neustadt , one of the three most serious maritime disasters in history. The inhabitants of the city themselves played an inglorious role in this context: prisoners from the Stutthof concentration camp near Danzig, which the SS had transported across the Baltic Sea in barges, were originally also supposed to be shipped to the Cap Arcona , but were turned away because the ship was overcrowded. In view of the military situation and the advance of British advance commands, the SS guards left the barges. The ships drifted ashore where the prisoners went in search of food in the Neustadt area in the early morning of May 3rd. Frightened citizens of Neustadt, members of the navy as well as a disabled unit and the Volkssturm then rounded up the prisoners in the so-called “collection action” and shot almost 300 of them, including women and children. The remainder were taken to the ship Athen , which was moored on the naval harbor quay, where several of them were killed in the air raids. After becoming aware of the massacre, the British city commandant released Neustadt for looting - probably also in order not to have to organize the supplies for the surviving prisoners of the Cap Arcona , the Athens and other ships himself.

In 1969 the city was awarded the flag of honor by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe ; Neustadt has since been allowed to call itself European City. On September 23, 2008, the city received the title “ Place of Diversity ” awarded by the federal government .



The first mayor of Neustadt, Christianus, who was mainly responsible for Altenkrempe, ruled from 1221 until an unknown date. The next known mayor was Johannes Gneningen from 1352. Until 1705, two mayors were appointed at the same time.

The children themselves have the opportunity to elect 15 members for a children's and youth parliament every two years. They should stand up for the interests of the young people in the committees and organize projects themselves. Neustadt took part in the federal project Diversity is good for you.

According to Article 28 and Section 2 of the Basic Law, Neustadt has the right to free self-administration and is therefore allowed to make and monitor decisions in matters of importance for the city within the framework of the reserve administration. This task is carried out by the city council with its committees and carried out by the mayor.

Disability officer

Since April 26, 2013 there has been a representative for people with disabilities in Neustadt who advocates their interests and submits reports to the city's committees. This post had existed since 2002, only then as a half-job.

coat of arms

Blazon : “In red a golden boat sailing on blue waves with two men, one of whom raises the hand of oath with outstretched fingers, the other leads the steering; the silver holstein nettle leaf above the boat. "

The oldest evidence of the coat of arms is the seal on a document from 1351. The bronze stamp for this seal was found after 1817 in the rubble of the city fire that was stored in a field outside the city. The seal image is the basis for the city arms.

Educational institutions

primary school

The catchment area of ​​the Neustädter Bucht primary school includes the town of Neustadt with the districts of Pelzerhaken and Rettin as well as the neighboring towns of Altenkrempe , Hasselburg , Sibstin, Klaushorst, Plunkau, Jarkau, Sierhagen , Kassau, Mühlenkamp, ​​Stolpe, Rogerfelde, Sierksdorf , Oevelgönne, Roge and Wintershagen . There are an average of five parallel classes in each of the four grade levels.

The school offers a differentiated support concept in the areas of cross-class German lessons, German as a second language, reading promotion, promotion of mathematics, inclusive and integration. In addition to conventional forms of teaching, ideas for individualized learning are developed and tested in all classes in the subjects of German and / or mathematics.

high school

The municipal high school is located a few meters from the beach on the Baltic Sea. Construction began in 1958. On February 22, 1960, the first day of classes took place in the new building. The school consists of three wings, which are connected by a hallway, and the natural sciences biology, chemistry and physics are in a three-story extension. There are two gyms, a new large sports hall and an older one. The school has a computer room and an internet café. The second construction phase was put into operation in 1963. In 2008 the cafeteria was completed; it is two-story and is located in the former courtyard of the school. The inner courtyard was made smaller by adding the cafeteria. The last change took place in 2012 with the renovation work on the new sports hall.

The headmaster (since 2014) is Mr. Karsten Kilian. The first headmaster (1959–1970) was Mr. Illing; his successors were Mr. Grewe (until 1982), Mr. Klopsch (until 2000) and Mr. Beier (until 2014). With the 50th anniversary in 2009, the city of Neustadt in Holstein took over the school sponsorship again. Since then the school is no longer called "Kreisgymnasium Neustadt", but "Städtisches Gymnasium Neustadt in Holstein - Coastal High School Neustadt". In the upper school it is desirable that every student has a laptop, since the grammar school has been a laptop school since 2004. The digital learning and working materials are often included in the lessons: Almost every room in the school is equipped with so-called whiteboards . In the future, every room should have a whiteboard. The school accesses the “fronter” learning platform, on which every student has their own account. Homework can be uploaded there or things that are important to the students can be displayed. In the entrance hall and in the cafeteria there is a flat screen on which the substitution plan is displayed. This can also be accessed conveniently from home via the school's homepage. Many projects, student exchanges and work groups are offered at the school. These include, for example, the golf and sailing company, the exchange countries France, Singapore and Hong Kong and the Comenius project . According to its own information, the school has around 40 teachers and around 600 students and has had a school social worker since May 1, 2013.

Community schools

The name of the Jacob-Lienau-Schule goes back to the Neustädter merchant Jacob Lienau . On April 1, 1939, middle school classes began in Neustadt; the classrooms were distributed among schoolhouses on Königsstrasse, Kirchenstrasse and Waschgrabenallee. On April 11, 1945, military hospitals were set up in the school buildings Waschgrabenallee, Rosengarten and Rettiner Weg. After April 19, 1946, after the Cap Arcona disaster of May 3, 1945, the situation eased somewhat. At that time there was a great shortage of teachers, as there was no replacement for the teachers who were killed in the war. After this time, the number of students increased due to the evacuees and refugees; there was also a shortage of books, exercise books, pencils and other work materials. From 1949, the catchment area of ​​the middle school in Neustadt in Holstein was reduced by the establishment of middle schools in Eutin, Oldenburg, Lensahn, Grömitz and Heiligenhafen. On December 1, 1950, the barracks building on the submarine school grounds was occupied. The time of lack of space and constant wandering was over.

In 2009 the former Jacob-Lienau-Realschule and the Hochtor-Grundschule became a community school . Both schools are in close proximity at Schulstrasse 2. In 2012, around 620 pupils attended the school, 300 of them group pupils and 320 secondary and secondary school pupils from previous years.

So far there have been six headmasters at the Jacob-Lienau-Schule:

  • April 1, 1939-10. October 1945: Karl Schulz
  • April 23, 1946-15. June 1947: Walter Raschert
  • June 16, 1947-13. March 1957: Ernst Schwarz
  • April 1, 1957-17. July 1978: Friedrich Christiansen
  • August 1, 1978-31. July 2006: Fritz Schramm
  • August 1, 2006 – January 2017 Jörg Schmidt
  • since September 1, 2017 Werner Hendricks

A trained school social worker and daily homework help are employed at this school. In 2013 a cafeteria was opened, in which cold and warm dishes are offered during the lunch break. The heart of the school is the school auditorium, in which performances by the various theater groups in Neustadt as well as guest performances by foreign theaters take place. The annual Christmas party for seniors from the DANA Ostsee Seniors Center also takes place there.

The Steinkamp School is referred to as a community school because it has been connected to the Hochtor primary school since the beginning of 2012 and is therefore considered a community primary school in Neustadt. The new school building was completed in 1965. In 1973 gyms were added and a cafeteria was added in 2001. In 2011, with a view to the merger with the Hochtor elementary school, the extension of several classrooms, washrooms, etc. began in 2012, the Hochtor elementary school was connected to the Steinkamp school. Ms. Gärtner (Hochtor elementary school) and Mr. Bohl (Steinkamp school) were in charge of the respective schools. Ms. Grave has been the headmistress of the community school since February 2012. The school yard currently measures 6000 m² and the entire area is around 1.5 hectares. The school has 35 teachers teaching 550 students in 23 classes. When the community project started, it was decided that the primary school would specialize in individual teaching so that each child would receive appropriate support. The strengths of the school are the homework and lunch supervision, reading motivation lessons and cooperation with support centers and partners outside of school, as well as equipping the 1st grade with smart boards and the intensive use of new media. The school also offers a choir and is supported by energetic parents. Investments of over 1.1 million euros were required for the entire project.

Nature conservation and citizens' initiatives

The Federation for the Environment and Nature Conservation Germany (BUND) takes care of nature conservation in the Neustadt in Holstein area . The BUND's largest project is the Neustädter Bucht greenhouse . The main building of this environmental house, which was founded in May 1991, was used for a youth development project until the beginning of 1991. It was founded by committed teachers, parents and politicians. One would rather appeal to younger children and sensitize them to nature so that they can develop a feeling for themselves and nature. The facility has three permanent employees and is looked after by the BUND. A FöJ ( Voluntary Ecological Year ) is also offered.

The citizens' initiative for a better waste concept in Ostholstein e. V. was founded after it became known that the Zweckverband Ostholstein (ZVO) wanted to expand the incineration capacity of its waste-to-energy plant in the industrial area west of the city of Neustadt from 80,000 t per year to 140,000 t. The BI advocated not expanding the system at the existing location and mobilized public resistance to the ZVO plans. In the planning approval procedure for the plant expansion, more than 5000 affected individuals raised objections . Under the impression of resistance in the population, the city of Neustadt also opposed the ZVO plans and sued the partial approval of the State Office for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Areas for the expansion of the waste-to-energy plant. The Schleswig Higher Administrative Court revoked the partial approval on February 2, 2010. Half a year after the court decision , the ZVO announced that it wanted to forego the expansion of its waste-to-energy plant.

Most of Neustadt's sports facilities are located on Gogenkrog. They consist of the Gogenkrog hall and the Gogenkrog court with a grass and artificial turf field , a long jump and shot put facility , a 400 m tartan track and shooting ranges . There are also fitness studios in the city .
