Evangelical Church in Nordgermersleben

Nordgermersleben was first mentioned in 1012 as Germeresleva and in 1209 as Garmersleve . The part of the name Germer comes from the personal name Geremar or Germer , the ending -leben means: "legacy, inheritance".

In the Middle Ages the place belonged to the Counts of Walbeck . The countess widow Kunigunde, daughter of the Margrave von Stade , moved to her estate in Nordgermersleben at the end of the 10th century and founded the first church in 995, which was consecrated in 996. The patronage was the Walbeck Abbey . After the von Walbeck family died out, the main landowners in the village were the lords of Alvensleben , von Veltheim , von Berwinkel , von der Schulenberg u. a., also spiritual foundations such as Kloster Berge , the church in Nordgermersleben or the parish of Markt Alvensleben were wealthy here. During the Thirty Years' War arson took place in the area; devastating fires in the village in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Belonging to the Alvensleben office , there was a manor in Nordgermersleben in 1818 - a manor, 90 houses, 794 inhabitants, an Evangelical Lutheran church, three jugs, a water mill, two windmills and an oil mill.

On July 1, 1950, the previously independent municipality of Tundersleben was incorporated.

coat of arms

The coat of arms was approved by the district on February 20, 2006.

Blazon : "In blue a golden wave bar, above between two golden ears of corn a ringing golden bell, below a golden natural stone fountain with a blue water level."

Nordgermersleben is divided into two parts by a ditch. The wave bar is intended to express this geographical condition. The two ears of corn symbolize the two districts of Brumby and Tundersleben, so that the bell stands for the main town (in whose church there is, by the way, a bell from 1336). In addition, the ears of corn stand for agriculture as well as for the fertile Börde in which the place is located. The fountain stands for a legend according to which the town of Nordgermersleben is said to have been founded at a source or a well.

The coat of arms was designed by the Magdeburg heraldist Ernst Albrecht Fiedler .


The flag is striped yellow - blue (1: 1) (landscape format: stripes running horizontally, lengthwise: stripes running vertically) and centered with the municipal coat of arms.

The neo-Romanesque village church , consecrated in 1905, has a Romanesque west tower taken over from the previous building and furnishings from various epochs from the Middle Ages to the 20th century.
