Sievershausen (Lower Saxony)

Location of Sievershausen in Lower Saxony

Sievershausen is a village belonging to the town of Dassel on Solling in the Northeim district in the south of the state of Lower Saxony .


Solling barn

The place is first documented in 1356 under the name Sydageshusen.

The first documented building of a church was completed in 1577, after the introduction of the Reformation in this area. As stones with medieval traces of work were found during renovation work, it is assumed that the building took place on the site of an older chapel. In 1585 Sievershausen had 413 inhabitants according to a census initiated by Duke Julius . In the Thirty Years' War , about half of the population was killed. In the following century, numerous new settlements, mostly Brinkitzer and cultivators , led to a significant increase in the population. In 1730 the church building erected in 1577 was replaced by a new building. One consequence of the increased population was the expansion of the original village, i. H. of today's lower village, towards the west, d. H. of today's upper village. Another consequence was a general impoverishment, since the agricultural areas were initially kept unchanged in size. In 1832, 53 people emigrated. Nevertheless, the number of inhabitants increased to 1644 by 1845. Therefore, the village boundary was expanded by clearing the Solling edge. The main focus of the clearing was the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. They partly followed small streams, which is still reflected today in the course of the municipality boundary on the municipality-free Solling . In 1872 the dilapidated church actually had to be rebuilt. The builder was Conrad Wilhelm Hase . At the same time, the cemetery near the church was moved to the south-eastern edge of the village, but was not equipped with a chapel until 1965. As a result of urbanization and a cholera - epidemic that killed 1,854 people 83 victims a year, and the 41 fallen soldiers of World War I , the population increased to 1925 from around the 1000th After the Second World War , around 800 displaced people settled in Sievershausen. Since then, urbanization and the demographic transition have been the main drivers of population development.

On February 1, 1972, part of the dissolved community-free area of Solling (district of Einbeck) with then about ten inhabitants was incorporated. On March 1, 1974 Sievershausen was incorporated into the city of Dassel.


The Abbecke settlement emerged as a workers' settlement at the end of the 18th century. The establishment, which took place around 1780 as the Abbecke colony , was in the interests of the Hildesheim monastery , which hoped to stabilize its southwestern border in line with the settlement policy of the time. The place name was taken from a Solling map in which Johannes Krabbe had entered the Abbeck River in 1603 . The idyllic surroundings of Abbecke have been preserved to this day, as the number of inhabitants has remained roughly constant since it was founded.

Abbecke is the highest district of the city of Dassel and one of the highest in the Solling.


Gate to Gut Friedrichshausen

The Friedrichshausen estate already existed in the Middle Ages and in 1666 became the ancestral seat of the von Garmissen family . The exact first documentary mention is difficult to assign due to possible confusion of names. Friedrichshausen was politically incorporated into Sievershausen in 1928. The Friedrichshaeuser Bruch is named after the place.
