|Location of the community Vollersroda in the Weimarer Land district|
Vollersroda is a municipality in the south of the Weimarer Land district and part of the Mellingen administrative community .
In 1262 the place Vollersroda was first mentioned in a document from Volrad von Kranichfeld for the monastery of Oberweimar as "Volradshrode".
The lords of Schleidnitz and von Lichtenberg owned goods and rights in Voylesrode in the 14th century . Later the place came into the possession of the Counts of Weimar-Orlamünde and from 1428 belonged to the Counts of Schwarzburg . In the years 1440 and 1508 there were other mentions of the place. In the Saxon Brotherly War (1446 to 1451) the place was completely destroyed and declared a desert. In 1598 the place was sold by the Saxon Chancellor Marcus Gerstenbergk to Duke Friedrich Wilhelm of Saxe-Weimar . Vollersroda survived the Thirty Years' War tolerably, while the Weiheroda settlement about 500 m to the east was destroyed. From the beginning of the 19th century, the place was part of the Grand Duchy of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach , district court district Jena and after 1945 became part of the Soviet occupation zone and the GDR with the state of Thuringia . Since 1990 the place belongs to the newly founded state of Thuringia.
- The village's → village church from the 18th century has a choir tower with a half-timbered tower that is characterized as “defensive” and has been included in the monuments list of the Weimarer Land district. It was also painted several times by Lyonel Feininger .
- On the way to the guard hill you come across the horse pond - a natural, water-filled depression in the hallway of the village. According to a legend, this was a resting place for carters, who always had to give their horses and themselves a break after having passed the Buchfahrter Berg before they could reach the village.
