Queis and its current districts of Kockwitz, Klepzig and Wiedersdorf belonged to the Electoral Saxon and Royal Saxon Office of Delitzsch until 1815 . As a result of the resolutions of the Congress of Vienna , the four towns became part of Prussia and in 1816 they were assigned to the Delitzsch district in the Merseburg administrative district of the province of Saxony , to which they belonged until 1950. In the course of the first district reform in the GDR in 1950, the four places such as the city of Landsberg were assigned to the newly tailored hall circle , which in 1952 became the new hall circle in the Halle district . At the same time as they were assigned to the Saalkreis, Klepzig, Kockwitz and Wiedersdorf were incorporated into Queis on July 1, 1950.

The lignite stored in the area south of Landsberg at a depth of 40 meters had been earmarked for mining since the 1970s. After successful test drilling, the construction freeze on Queis was imposed in 1981, as the government of the GDR was planning to open the "Hatzfeld opencast mine" south of Landsberg in 1990. After the opencast mines Delitzsch-Südwest and Breitenfeld, this would have been the third of five opencast mines in the area between Delitzsch in the north and Leipzig in the south. However, the economic change associated with German reunification in 1989/90 led to a drastic decline in the demand for lignite, which resulted in the early, rapid closure of the already opened open-cast mines Delitzsch-Südwest and Breitenfeld by 1993. The exploration of the Hatzfeld opencast mine planned in 1990 was not carried out and the construction freeze for Queis and its districts was lifted. This created new residential areas between Queis and Klepzig.

The community Queis with the districts Kockwitz, Klepzig and Wiedersdorf was separated from the administrative community Kabelske-Tal on January 1, 2005 and merged with the city of Landsberg. As a result, the administrative community Kabelske-Tal was dissolved.


In Queis, in addition to the commercial area located at Bundesstraße 100 near Landsberg and now fully occupied, there is another large industrial and commercial area, which is currently being expanded again for around 35 million euros.

The city of Halle operates the industrial area Halle-Saalkreis on the A 14 with the city of Landsberg and the municipality of Kabelsketal . Valuable archaeological excavations of an earlier settlement were carried out as part of the development work.


A sports club has existed in Queis since 1909. Founded as "TuS Queis und Umgebung", gymnastics was initially practiced before a handball department was added in 1926. Since then handball has been practiced in Queis. The highlights in the 1970s and 1980s included the promotion to the GDR district league several times, in which the championship was won in 1982. In the same year they managed to defeat the then second division club from Freiberg in the FDGB Cup.

After the reunification, the club, which had now been renamed SG Queis, played for many years in the Association League Saxony Anhalt-Süd, but had to relegate to the district league in the 2008/2009 season.
