Location of Orr in Pulheim

Orr is part of the city of Pulheim in the Rhein-Erft district .


Orr is a small farm settlement east of Pulheim and west of Cologne 's Esch district . It consists of the war court and the Heinenhof, next to which there was also the Bayershof in the past. The largest branch of the economy is agriculture (including goose farming), followed by the timber industry. The rural environment consists of extensive fields, meadows and forests.


Similar to Kerpen-Horrem or Dormagen-Horrem , the name Orr is derived from the Old High German name Horo ( swamp ). The first written mention dates from the year 1096. Like the large estates in the area, the farms that made up the town were fiefs of Cologne monasteries and did not come into private ownership until the end of the 18th and 19th centuries. Belonging to France since 1794, Orr became part of the Prussian mayorship of Stommeln in 1814 and thus became part of the Pulheim office from 1934 . From 1964 Orr belonged to the community of Sinnersdorf and together with it became part of the new community of Pulheim on January 1, 1975.


The Orr manor is noteworthy . It was built in 1838 according to plans by the Cologne cathedral builder Ernst Friedrich Zwirner and fell into disrepair in the 20th century. Efforts to preserve it have been ongoing since the mid-1980s; from 2010 it was restored by a private owner and is at events of the Förderverein Rittergut Orr e. V. accessible. The scale according to English models Park is just like the mansion under monument protection .
