In addition to the historic city center east of the Straussee, the actual city of Strausberg includes the following parts:

This means that the city has a south-north extension of almost 15 kilometers, while the east-west extension is only about three kilometers.


Before the first mention

Old town
city ​​wall

Traces of Bronze Age settlement (1200–700 BC) have been found in the urban area of ​​Strausberg. Between 600 and 1200 AD there were Slavic settlements in the area around Strausberg.

middle Ages

Around 1225 a castle was built on Straussee and a market settlement on Lindenplatz was created during this time. The city of Strausberg was founded around 1240. In 1247 Strausberg is mentioned in a document under the name Struceberch . In 1254 the city was fortified and the city wall built, remains of which are still preserved today. The city wall was originally 1,600 meters long and made of field stones. She owned 24 Wikhäuser . The oldest building in the city also dates from this period. Parts of the Marienkirche in Strausberg are more than 750 years old.

The Protestant parish church of St. Marien is not only the oldest, but also the tallest building in the city. The church is an early Gothic pillar basilica built from field stones with three aisles. It was built around 1250 and is one of the largest preserved churches of the 13th century in the Mark Brandenburg . In addition, the Buchhorst was included in the city during this time, a street with this name shows how far the city reached back then. In addition, a Dominican monastery was founded, the Margrave Otto III. Founded in 1252 by and existed for almost 300 years. In 1267 the founder of the monastery was Margrave Otto III. solemnly buried in the monastery church.

The Nikolaikirche was located on today's Lindenplatz. In the spring of 2005, human graves were discovered and recovered during archaeological investigations on the Schulstrasse 1 site. These were the oldest burial place in the city, the Nikolai churchyard. Little is known about the Nikolaikirche. Presumably it fell into disrepair in the middle of the 16th century. Burials took place only occasionally during the Thirty Years' War. In 1787 the last remains of the church were removed. The 62 recovered skeletons date from the first half of the 13th to around the middle of the 16th century. They were examined by the anthropologist Bettina Jungklaus . 24.2% of those buried died in infancy up to the age of 7 and 22.6% between the ages of 20 and 39 years. The expected highest mortality around the age of 50 turns out to be rather low here at 17.7%. The mean life expectancy was rather low at just 27 years. Comparisons with other medieval towns in the Margraviate of Brandenburg showed that the residents of Strausberg died earlier on average, which indicates rather unfavorable living conditions. The high child mortality rate of almost 39% indicates a generally worse life situation. The examined section of the population showed a high surplus of men. Medieval cities were dependent on constant immigration from rural areas, as mortality was higher here than in the countryside. Above all, simple servants and farm workers hoped for a better livelihood and social advancement opportunities in the cities, which fits the proven surplus of men. 41% of all children show traces of hemorrhagic / inflammatory meningeal reactions .

In 1339 the first town hall of Strausberg was built. With the conquests and occupations of the city of Strausberg around 1348, the Black Death (probably the plague) came to Strausberg. The false Waldemar and the Pomoranen occupied the city, and Ludwig the Elder tried in vain over the next few years to regain Strausberg. With the occupation, Strausberg lost its legal confirmation (Strausberg law). It was not until 1354 that Strausberg received all of his rights and goods back from Ludwig the Roman .

South of the old town at today's Lustgarten tram stop was the St. Georgs Hospital, first mentioned in a document in 1367, an infirmary and hospital for plague sufferers . This included the George Chapel and a cemetery. In October 2004, burials were discovered during road construction work in the area between August-Bebel-Strasse and Walkmühlenstrasse. These could be assigned to the Georgenkirchhof, which is recorded in the city map from 1834. In 1633 the hospital was destroyed in the course of the Thirty Years War. Only the chapel remained. It stood desolate for about 100 years and was prepared for church services again from 1730. From the middle of the 19th century, the site was converted into a park and the chapel into a café. At the beginning of the 1970s, the chapel was in the way of redesigning the street and was demolished without further ado. A small section of the cemetery was the subject of archaeological research in 2004 in the run-up to earth attacks. 55 body graves were documented and recovered on an area of ​​34 m². Most of the graves lay in two layers on top of each other. Due to the ceramic finds and the burial customs, the burials were assigned to the early modern period with a focus on the 16th and 17th centuries. The skeletons were examined anthropologically . Most people died of advanced adulthood between the ages of 40 and 59. The proportion of people over 60 was also quite high. 78% of those buried were adults, which corresponds to the conception of a hospital population. Twice as many men as women were found. In 86% of the buried, abnormal changes in the bones could be seen. This percentage was comparatively high. Numerous deficiency diseases , degenerative and inflammatory changes in the vertebrae and diseases of the teeth such as caries with inflammatory apical processes were found. Some people had particularly serious illnesses, such as venereal syphilis . A suspected leprosy case was found. A 55 to 65 year old man shows massive bone growths that have been interpreted as the result of a serious injury from torture on a rack .

In the years 1393 to 1399 Strausberg concluded a protection and defiance alliance with other cities to protect themselves from the robber knights . In 1432 the city was stormed by the Hussites and partially destroyed.

Modern times

The introduction of the Reformation led to the abolition of the Dominican monastery in 1541. His treasures were plundered by the sovereign and the land was assigned to an electoral council. Between 1549 and 1598 the plague raged several times in Strausberg. Hundreds of citizens of the city, including the pastor and Brandenburg chronicler Andreas Engel , died.

In 1626 and 1627, the imperial military leader Wallenstein visited Strausberg several times. In 1631 the Swedes made Strausberg a mustering point, and many citizens followed suit. On November 12, 1633, the city was attacked and plundered by imperial families, so that in 1638 only 32 bourgeois families lived in Strausberg. In 1643 the Great Elector asked the other cities to protect Strausberg from destruction. In 1714 the military history, which continues to this day, began with the stationing of a company, later up to three companies of the 23rd Infantry Regiment in Strausberg.

In 1772 the monastery was transformed into a city school. In 1787, the construction of the rural poor institution began on the foundations of the monastery and was opened in 1792.

Old town hall on the market, built 1819–1825

In 1805 the town hall on the south side of the market was demolished except for the foundations and the cellar. The start of the new construction of the town hall was delayed due to the war against Napoleon . A Strausberg battalion went to war against Napoleon in 1806. The new town hall was not completed until 1825 in the classicism style.

In 1808 the city regulations were introduced in Strausberg. As a result, the citizens were allowed to elect city councilors for the first time in 1809 . These elected city councilors in turn elected the mayor and members of the magistrate.

In 1817, the Jewish community , whose forerunners had been in the city since the 14th century, built their synagogue .

In 1867 the first passenger train on the Berlin – Küstrin line stopped at Strausberg station . On October 1st, the Eastern Railway opened there. The connection between the city and the train station was established by private hauliers and the royal post office. The district court building was built in 1885 and the post office was built in 1890 . In 1893 the Strausberger Railway (then still Strausberger Kleinbahn ) was opened. The Straussee ferry has existed on the Straussee since 1894 and has been operated with low electrical voltage from an open overhead contact line since 1914.

In 1901 the school building for the boys' school was built, in 1902 the public library was built. In 1904 the elementary school building was built in Hegermühlenstraße, which today houses the Hegermühlen elementary school. The local history museum of the city of Strausberg was founded in 1908.

Railcar of the Strausberger Eisenbahn at the terminus of the S-Bahn station , January 2011

In 1921 the electrical operation of today's Strausberger Eisenbahn GmbH began . On June 27, 1922, there was a general strike in Strausberg over the murder of Foreign Minister Walther Rathenau .

Immigration had increased the number of Catholics in the 1920s to around 1,100, so that a church was urgently needed. The St. Joseph Church in Weinbergstrasse was built by the diocesan master builder Carl Kühn and consecrated on October 21, 1928 by Auxiliary Bishop Josef Deitmer .

During the Nazi era , the synagogue in Jungfernstrasse near Müncheberger Tor was destroyed by the Nazis during the November pogroms in 1938, as was the Jewish cemetery on the Straussee promenade as an extension of Wallstrasse. In 1935 an ammunition factory was built in Hegermühlenstrasse under the name of Märkisches Walzwerk . A year later, the construction of a military airfield and air force barracks began. From 1940, forced laborers from all over Europe worked in the Märkisches Walzwerk. By 1944 there were around 1,500 forced laborers and prisoners of war . From 1941, the Sachsenhausen concentration camp external command managed the ammunition factory.

On April 19 and 20, 1945, most of the residents of Strausberg fled from the approaching Red Army . One day later, the 32nd Rifle Corps of the Red Army moved into Strausberg. By July 1945, most of the people who had fled had returned.

GDR time

On October 31, 1948, the Berlin S-Bahn was extended to Strausberg station. In 1955, a newly built line to Strausberg Nord was put into operation, and from June 3, 1956 it was operated electrically as an S-Bahn.

In 1954 the main staff of the barracked People's Police was stationed in Strausberg Nord, in the former barracks of the Wehrmacht air base. It was transformed into the Ministry of National Defense (MfNV) in 1956 with the establishment of the National People's Army (NVA) . The reorganization was accompanied by the creation of a news operations department, which later became the main news center of the MfNV.

In 1957 the command of the air force / air defense was established in Strausberg in what is now the Barnim barracks near the Strausberg train station. In this barracks complex (from 1967: Lambert-Horn barracks ) was also the Hugo Eberlein NVA guard regiment .

In Strausberg, the Rüdersdorf cement works built and maintained a children's holiday camp for the children of its employees .

In 1960 more residential construction began. In 1985 the Strausbergers celebrated the 750th birthday of their city. On November 12, 1989, 15,000 citizens demonstrated in Strausberg for more democracy .

Upper School Center Strausberg

With the district reform in 1993, the Strausberg district became part of the new Märkisch-Oderland district with the district town of Seelow . Hohenstein, Ruhlsdorf and Gladowshöhe became districts of Strausberg in 1995.

In 1990 the MfNV was dissolved and units of the Bundeswehr began to be stationed . Strausberg temporarily became the seat of the Bundeswehr Command East . In 1994 the German Armed Forces moved their Academy for Information and Communication (AIK) from Waldbröl ( North Rhine-Westphalia ) to Strausberg. This was followed by Area 5 of the Center for Inner Guidance and in 1995 the Social Science Institute of the Bundeswehr . The GSSD garrison said goodbye to the townspeople after 49 years of stationing. In 1998 the AIK complex was expanded to include the building for the military library. In 2001 the Bundeswehr and the city of Strausberg signed a sponsorship agreement. Until the dissolution of the military area administration in 2013, Strausberg was the seat of the military area administration east of the Bundeswehr.

coat of arms

The city's coat of arms was approved on January 26, 1994.

Blazon : "In blue over a green three-mountain, a turned to the left, opposed, golden armed silver bouquet , over the back of which a silver shield, covered with a golden armed red eagle, hovers."

It is believed that the shape of the Strausssee contributed to the naming of the city and its choice as a heraldic animal. The lake adjacent to the old town center has the elongated, narrow shape of a bean. The Slavic strutch ( dt ., Pod ') has a phonetic similarity to the German word Strauss. The definition of the heraldic animal is a folk etymology , a so-called " talking coat of arms ".

The ostrich coat of arms was also used in the association badge of the Strausberg-based IVth Battalion of the Air Force Training Regiment.
