Züllsdorf is a district of the city of Herzberg (Elster) in the district of Elbe-Elster in Brandenburg .


Three streets connect the town in the south with the old post road Leipzig – Frankfurt (Oder), today's B 87 . With the two places Löhsten (3 km) and Döbrichau (5 km), Züllsdorf forms a large arable island in the middle of the Annaburg Heath . The landscape is an old marshland between the Elbe and the Schwarzer Elster . To the west of the village is the triangle between the federal states of Brandenburg , Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt .


Place name and first mention

The Angerdorf was first mentioned in a document in 1284. Presumably expanded by German-Flemish settlers, alongside a Sorbian indigenous population. Earlier spellings are: Czolstorff, Zulsdorff, Sulzdorf, Zülßdorf, Zilßdorf .

Local history

From the 15th century to 1815, Züllsdorf belonged to Lochau , which later became the office of Annaburg and thus to the Electorate of Saxony . In 1550, 22 “possessed men” lived here, including 18 coaches ( Hüfner ), 3 gardeners and 1 lieutenant judge .

In the Middle Ages, the settlements Erbleih, Friedewald and Große existed in the western part of the district, which have been mentioned as "desert brands" since 1550. Züllsdorf probably emerged from these settlements. The new settlement was also repeatedly destroyed in the many wars.

In addition to farming and meadow use, the inhabitants lived from the wood of the Annaburg Heath as well as from the extraction of lawn iron stone and from pitch burning. The names of the paths “Pechweg” and “Pechdamm” are still a reminder today. The Pechhütte was run for generations by the Schlobach families, who also provided several heads of office. In addition to the pitch burners, there were also a few Zeidler, the beekeepers of that time, because wax for the candles and honey for sweetening were very popular. From 1816 (after the Congress of Vienna ) the place belonged to the Torgau district and thus to the Prussian province of Saxony in the administrative district of Merseburg. After the political turnaround in 1990, the approx. 650 inhabitants (the largest part of the municipality of Herzberg apart from the core city) decided in 1992 to belong to Herzberg and thus to the state of Brandenburg.

Until 1815 the place belonged to the office of Annaburg. In 1912, the Saathain manor swapped farm forests in Züllsdorf for a royal forest district in Oppach .

Culture and sights

Village church

A separate church is documented for the place as early as 1339. A half-timbered building burned down in 1637 during the Thirty Years War . After the war a church was built again in 1670. This half-timbered building fell victim to a fire in 1855. A follow-up building was built on the village green for two years. The building that can be seen today is a neo-Gothic style church made of field stones, which was inaugurated in 1857. The then Torgau building inspector Dolscius was responsible for the designs. The church is now registered in the local register of monuments.

More monuments

Another registered monument can be found at Züllsdorfer Mittelstrasse 2. It is a house built in 1821. At the rear of the half-timbered building is a stable building with an upper arbor.

Immediately next to the church is a memorial to the victims of the villagers who died in the First and Second World Wars .
