12th to 16th centuries

Around 1200 the place was founded by farmers from the Lower Rhine and the church was built in the 13th century. Waltersdorf was first mentioned in a document in 1352 as in villa Woterstorp . The Kreuzangerdorf appeared as Wolterstorff , Walterstorff and Walterstorf teutunica in 1375 in the land book of Charles IV . At that time it was 78 hooves in size, of which the pastor was entitled to two duty-free parish hooves. The Schulze continued to live in the village , 13 cottagers ; there was a jug and already a mill. Before 1375 the village belonged to the von der Liepe family. She held half of the higher and lower jurisdiction and half of the church patronage . Your stood income from 40 hooves "with full rights" to, plus a share of Bede , the Kossätenzins, the pitcher interest and the mill rate. The second part of the jurisdiction came from before 1374 until after 1521 to that of Groeben . They also received the income from seven hooves, a share of the jug interest and a farm with four hooves. The heather with half the heather hooves, two farms, a yard with two hooves and a free sheep farm with three hooves belonged to the other property. The lease and interest on four other Hufen went to the Bertkow zu Altglienicke family around 1375; then to the Mußlow family (Musolf). The Nikolaikirche in Berlin was also involved in the village and received lease and interest income of four Hufen around 1375.

In 1450 Waltersdorf consisted of 73 Hufen, two for the pastor and one for the church. Four of the Krewitz family's hooves were desolate and apparently no longer cultivated, because only one year later six hooves were already desolate. In the same year the von Liepe family increased their property by four free hooves, while the von Groeben family received lifts from the mill in 1472 . However, these were pledged in 1519, 1520 and 1521 as pension payments to the von Reiche and then probably fell to the von Liepe or the von Thümen. In 1472 there was a free sheep farm with three hooves in Waltersdorf. The share of the heather and the heather hooves belonged to the farm of the Hönow family from Berlin. Four more hooves were owned by the von Britzke family before 1473 . In 1480 the von Liepe had 14 hooves; 1535 a courtyard. Waltersdorf was a total of 73 hooves (two for the pastor and one for the church), 14 other hooves lay desolate, the other 42 paid interest. There was still a mill, but the jug was no longer mentioned. The Groeben share came to the citizen Hönow after 1521. In 1553 the von Liepe's share came to the von Thümen family . She received the upper and lower jurisdiction, the patronage, the residential courtyards, the outworks, the sheep farms and two windmills. In 1571 the von Thümen with two windmills was reported about the residential courtyards, farms and sheep farms. Mußlow's share came to the elector in the 16th century, who passed it on to the Flans zu Altglienicke and Großmachnow family from 1539 to 1620. He probably came into the rule of King Wusterhausen with the Großmachnow estate .

17th century

Before the Thirty Years' War there were 18 Hufner , five Kossäts and already its own blacksmith, a lease shepherd, a blacksmith as well as 66 Hufen and six rulership. From them three yards with nine hooves went off, which were ransomed. In 1652, the Viceschulze survived the war with one son, seven farmers with six sons and a farmhand and six kossa with two sons and a farmhand. In 1676, von Thümsche's share was in the resalable possession of von Berne (von Beeren), who only held it until 1697. Like the Britzkesche share, it fell to the elector and was passed on to Count Kolbe von Wartenberg in 1700

The property also included two windmills and a dairy that was built on Waltersdorfer Heide - what would later become the Vorwerk residential area . The elector continued to hand over the shepherd's justice, "all subjects", a vineyard, the brewery jug, the smithy and the upper and lower courts along with church patronage. There was a large pleasure garden and orchard as well as a pond. In the meantime there was a separate jug with a free beer bar, a vineyard in front of the village and fishing on the Spree. In 1711 the count's share of those von Wartenberg came to the office of Köpenick and, via the Crown Prince, from 1736 to 1872 into the rule of King Wusterhausen. At the time of the transfer to the office, Waltersdorf was 57 hooves tall. The ten farriers, five farmers, the blacksmith, the shepherd, the three pairs of householders, the shepherd, and the large and small farmhand each paid eight groschen per hoof in taxes.

coat of arms

With the choice of a heraldic stylized church representation, the municipality draws on a central motif of the municipality's history, in which the church was not only the religious, but also the cultural and architectural center of the municipality. The five cornflower blossoms symbolize the five parts of the Waltersdorf community. There are Hubertus, Kienberg, Siedlung, Vorwerk and Waltersdorf-Dorf. The cornflower is known as a blue flowering cereal weed. The cornflower blossoms in the coat of arms indicate the frequent occurrence of the blue daisy family in the parish corridor. Indirectly, the motif also refers to agriculture as the main historical source of income for the people of Waltersdorf.

The community colors are gold (/ yellow) –black.

The coat of arms was designed by the local heraldist Frank Diemar.
