Tanneberg is a district of the municipality of Klipphausen in the district of Meißen , Saxony . It consists of Alttanneberg and Neutanneberg.


Tanneberg is located in the south of the Klipphausen municipality. It is located in the middle between the two district towns of Meißen and Freiberg , about twelve kilometers west of the city limits of Dresden . Neighboring districts of Klipphausen are Rothschönberg in the northwest, Perne and Groitzsch in the north and Schmiedewalde in the northeast. The Wilsdruffer districts of Limbach and Blankenstein are neighboring to the east and south-east, respectively.

In the Tanneberg district are the places Alttanneberg and Neutanneberg. The latter is on the edge of the district, about one kilometer southeast of Alttanneberg. The strip between the two places is used for agriculture . Alt- and Neutanneberg are located in the Meißner highlands on small left side valleys of the Triebisch valley, which gives the municipality its name. The Triebisch runs at Tanneberg through a narrow, unspoilt and wooded section of the valley on the 50 meter high slopes, which is known as Tanneberger Loch . Federal motorway 4 ran through this until it was relocated to the plateau in 1999 . Tanneberg does not have its own motorway exit; the next junction is Wilsdruff. The A4 bypasses the Tanneberger Loch just north on several bridges, including the Triebischseitentalbrücke and the Triebischseitentalbrücke . The old route has been renatured .

State road 36 (Wilsdruffer Straße), which connects Leisnig with Freital , runs through Tanneberg . In Alttanneberg, the S 196 (Neukirchner Straße) branches off from it in the direction of Freiberg. Other streets in Alttanneberg are the Pfarrweg, the Bauernweg, the Flurweg and the streets “Am Teich” and “Am Rittergut”. In Neutanneberg there are also the streets “Markt” and “An der Triebe”. The bus route 334 (Wilsdruff – Nossen) of the Dresden regional transport and the bus routes 413 (Meißen – Tanneberg) and 414 (Meißen – Schmiedewalde) of the transport company Meißen stop in Tanneberg .


The oldest reference to Tanneberg is the mention of "Wernherus et Pribizlaus de Tanninberch" (Werner and Pribislaus von Tanneberg) in a document from 1227, which suggests a manor in the village at that time. In 1282 a "Gebeharus de Tannenberg" (Gebhard von Tanneberg) was mentioned. The place Tanneberg itself appears in 1334 and 1378 as "Tannenberg", in 1547 it is called "Tannabergk" and in 1551 "Thonberg". Then a distinction was made between "Alt Tanneberg" and "New Tanneberg" (both 1791).

Alttanneberg is a forest hoof village on a forest hoof field of about 483 hectares in 1900 with manor blocks. Several three and four-sided courtyards have been preserved in the village . In Alttanneberg there is also a former manor with manor house, whose origins date to a medieval , built around the time 1200-1250 castle back. The ground monument is located on a small spur in a valley niche and contains the remainder of a moat , but was built over by the manor house.

The owners of the manor exercised the manorial rule as well as inheritance and jurisdiction in the village. After the aforementioned lords of Tanneberg, Tanneberg belonged to the Altzella monastery . In the early modern era, the Ritterhof, mentioned in 1438, was owned by the Freiberg mayor Peter Alnpeck and members of the von Staupitz , von Heynitz and von Hartitzsch families . In 1660, the family acquired from Miltitz the neuschriftsässige manor, 1675 it became the property of the family of Schoenberg and stayed with it until the expropriation 1945. Maintained was Tannenberg from 1547 from Erbamt Meissen . In 1843 it was the responsibility of the Meißen office. Since 1856 the place was subordinate to the court office Wilsdruff and from 1875 to the administrative authority of Meißen .

The Neutanneberg, first mentioned in a church book in 1607, was created as a loose house removal in the Tanneberger corridor. In 1900 the Neutanneberger cottagers had a total of nine hectares of land. Alt- and Neutanneberg, which were rural communities according to the Saxon rural community order of 1838 , united in 1910 to form the community of Tanneberg. The Tanneberg Volunteer Fire Brigade was founded in 1944 . A year later, the manor was expropriated with its 200 hectares of usable space, which until then had still belonged to the von Schönberg family. On January 1, 1973, Rothschönberg was incorporated with Perne. On January 1, 1999, the municipality of Tanneberg joined the municipality of Triebischtal, which had been formed five years earlier. With the incorporation of Triebischtal on July 1, 2012, Tanneberg became a district of the Klipphausen community. The districts of the former municipality of Tanneberg, i.e. Tanneberg, Rothschönberg and Perne, form a village within the municipality of Klipphausen with its own mayor and nine-member local council.

Culture and sights

Several buildings in the village are protected as cultural monuments (see list of cultural monuments in Tanneberg ).


Manor Tanneberg, manor

The mighty, three-story mansion with its twelve window axes and the mansard hipped roof is located in Alttanneberg on the street "Am Rittergut". It was built in 1744 under the rule of Adolf Ferdinand von Schönberg (1685–1758). Its right wing goes back to an older building from the 16th century and was redesigned in 1879 under Carl Wilhelm von Schönberg-Pötting. Its previous owner, Karl Friedrich Rudolf von Schönberg-Pötting, had a park built around the manor house based on the English model . After the expropriation of the von Schönberg family, the manor house was used for residential purposes and as a kindergarten and youth club. After that it was empty.


Tanneberg Church

On the northern edge of Alttanneberg, next to the manor, stands the Tanneberg Church, surrounded by a small cemetery. The previous building was mentioned as a parish church in 1539 , but it burned down. In 1630, at the time of the Thirty Years War , the church was rebuilt in its baroque form , which has been preserved to this day. Since 1925 it was a branch church of Blankenstein, today it belongs to the parish of Burkhardswalde-Tanneberg. In 1967 donations and work made it possible to purchase a new bronze bell. Next to the church is one of the oldest preserved rectory in Saxony, which was built from 1654. The rectory is in Burkhardswalde ; Church services take place in Tanneberg every two weeks.

The bell consists of three bronze bells, the bell cage is made of steel. Below is a data overview of the bell:
