Location of the Röhrsdorf district in Klipphausen
Röhrsdorf lies roughly in the middle between Meißen and Wilsdruff in the Meißner highlands . State road 177 leads past the town immediately to the west . Röhrsdorf is located at the upper end of the Regenbach Valley. The Regenbach flows to the east and flows into the Wilde Sau above Constappel . As a forest hoof village , the place has an elongated basic structure in an east-west direction. In addition, after 1990 there were several locations for new houses and apartments as well as a 15 hectare industrial area.
Röhrsdorf was first mentioned in 1250 as "Rudingistorf". The place name means "village of a Rüdiger " and is named after a locator . In the middle of the 15th to the middle of the 16th century the place name was preceded by the addition "Groß-" in order to distinguish the village from the neighboring "Kleinröhrsdorf", today's Klipphausen. In 1875 Röhrsdorf carried the addition "near Wilsdruff" to distinguish four places with the same name in Saxony.
The village shape of the Waldhufendorf is typical for a foundation by Franconian-Thuringian-Lower Saxony colonists in the 11th / 12th. Century. Mostly farmers lived in Röhrsdorf; there were also several flour mills, the last of which ceased operations in 1974. For centuries the village was divided into up to five manors , including the manors Scharfenberg , Limbach and Taubenheim . Around 1840 Röhrsdorf became an independent rural community and on January 1, 1994 part of the community of Klipphausen. Its district is a good seven square kilometers.
The spread of phylloxera brought about the cessation of viticulture towards the end of the 19th century; Parts of the old vineyard walls have been preserved. Until around 1930, the syenite found there was mined in several quarries on the Regenbach. The Ullendorf-Röhrsdorf station, located on the Wilsdruff-Gärtitz narrow-gauge railway, served freight trains until it was closed in 1969.
There is an old stone cross on the churchyard wall, which was probably made in the 15th or 16th century. The monolith, with an average height of 87 centimeters, was discovered in 1896 at a depth of three meters at the intersection of Dorfstrasse and Naustadt-Klipphausener Weg during excavation work for a drain. It was buried there at an unknown time. Its original meaning is unknown. By decision of the Röhrsdorf church council, the accidentally rediscovered cross was erected at its present location in 1896 as a war memorial.
In addition to the church, several other buildings in the village are protected as cultural monuments (see list of cultural monuments in Röhrsdorf ).
The largest tree in town is the Friedenslinde with a trunk circumference of 5.40 meters. It was planted in 1855 on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg religious peace.
