Nowy Dwór Gdański [ ˈnɔvɨ ˈdvur ˈgdaɲsci ] ( German Tiegenhof ) is a town with about 10,000 inhabitants and the seat of the town-and-country municipality of the same name in the powiat Nowodworski of the Polish Pomeranian Voivodeship .


The village is located in the former West Prussia , about 25 kilometers west-northwest of the city of Elbląg (Elbing) and 36 kilometers southeast of Danzig an der Tuja (Tiege) near the south-west bank of the Frischer Haff .


Tiegenhof was established as a settlement next to a domain of the Loitz family , a merchant family from Gdansk , who had to sell their property in 1572 due to over-indebtedness. Under the next owners, the Weiher family, the Tiegenhof became the main courtyard of a Starostei . Over time, the settlement grew into a market town with craftsmen, shopkeepers, jugs and gardeners. Outside the village there were two windmills and a distillery in 1664.

Tiegenhof was part of Royal Prussia and thus came in the first partition of Poland in 1772 to Prussia . On the site of the main courtyard, a Protestant church was built in 1784, which was rebuilt between 1831 and 1834 according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel . In 1848 a Catholic church was built.

After Tiegenhof had held the status of a market town from 1859, it was granted town charter in 1880 .

Tiegenhof has had a railway connection since 1881 , which was expanded in 1886 via Neuteich to Simonsdorf . Since 1900, the city has also been connected to the narrow-gauge railway network of the former West Prussian Kleinbahnen AG (today: Żuławska Kolej Dojazdowa ).

Traditional businesses in Tiegenhof were the Machandelfabrik of the Stobbe family, which had been making juniper schnapps since 1776 , and the Stobbe brewery , which had been in existence since 1784 . The Tiegenhofer oil mill and the sugar factory also had a good reputation.

The city had belonged to the Marienburg district (West Prussia) since 1818 . After the First World War , Tiegenhof was added to the Free City of Danzig in 1920 , which was separated from the German Empire . With this, Tiegenhof left the Marienburg district and became the district town of the newly created district of Großes Werder . In 1939 the Free City of Danzig was occupied by the Germans and then reconnected to the German Empire. In Tiegenhof there were two external detachments from the Stutthof concentration camp , one in the main workshop of the Kleinbahn and a second in the brickworks.

Towards the end of the Second World War , Tiegenhof, like Danzig, was placed under Polish administration. Tiegenhof received the Polish name Nowy Dwór Gdański , which means Neuhof near Danzig. Had not fled as far as the German citizens, they were in the period that followed expelled and replaced by Poles.

Between 1954 and 1975 Nowy Dwór was the seat of a powiat , and since 1999 the city has been a district town again.
