Zerzabelshof , also called Zabo , is a district of Nuremberg in the eastern outskirts (statistical district 95) on the eastern outskirts between the Dutzendteich in the southwest and Mögeldorf in the north and northeast. The neighboring districts to the west are (from the north) Tullnau , Weichselgarten and Gleißhammer . For the residents, the term "Zaboraner", sometimes also "Zaboaner" or "Zabonesen" is used.

The mostly relaxed design with numerous single and two-family houses and many gardens as well as the immediate vicinity of the Nuremberg zoo and the Lorenzer Reichswald make Zerzabelshof a preferred residential area for families.

The district of Zerzabelshof is located on the Lorenzer Reichswald to the east. The Goldbach , a tributary of the Pegnitz, flows through the village . To the northeast of Zabo lies the 391 m high Schmausenbuck - known for the zoo there with its spacious ponds, forest and meadow landscapes in the former quarries of the Nuremberg Castle Sandstone.


Mettingh Castle

The name Zerzabelshof goes back to the administrators of the forester's house , Gotz de Sternzagelshouve and Leovpoldus de Sternzagelshouve, mentioned in a document in 1309 . In the later centuries, the landlords Waldstromer von Reichelsdorf , Löffelholz von Kolberg (1563–1837) and Mettingh (1861–1906) expanded the forester's house into the Zerzabelshof manor and expanded it into a small village.

Towards the end of the 18th century there were 17 properties in Zerzabelshof (1 castle, 6 estates, 2 estates, 7 houses, 1 community shepherd's house). The high court exercised the imperial city of Nuremberg , but this was disputed by the Brandenburg-Ansbach offices of Schwabach and Schönberg . The village and community rulership and the manorial rule over all properties was held by the Nuremberg owner von Löffelholz .

As part of the municipal edict, the tax district and the rural community Mögeldorf were formed in 1808 , to which Zerzabelshof also belonged. In the voluntary jurisdiction, 1 property was subject to the Patrimonial Court of Haimendorf from 1822 to 1836 and the remaining properties to the Patrimonial Court of Zerzabelshof until 1835. After 1818, but before 1840, Zerzabelshof broke up with Valznerweiher and formed its own rural community, which was subordinate to the Nuremberg Regional Court in terms of administration and jurisdiction and the Fürth Rent Office for financial administration . From 1862 Zerzabelshof was administered by the Nuremberg District Office . Jurisdiction has been with the Nuremberg District Court since 1880 . The financial management was taken over in 1871 by the Nuremberg Rent Office ( renamed the Nuremberg Tax Office in 1920 ). The municipality had an area of ​​0.762 km². On November 1, 1923, Zerzabelshof was incorporated into Nuremberg .

From 1947 to 1950 the Moll-Bahn ran through Zerzabelshof , a narrow-gauge rubble railway that transported the overburden from Nuremberg's old town, which was 90% destroyed, to Fischbach . The depot and the locomotive sheds were located on the current site of 1. FC Nürnberg in the south of Zerzabelshof at the Valznerweiher .

After the Second World War , the population increased sharply; it is around 13,000 today. Zerzabelshof was originally an independent city district and was assigned to Nuremberg District 5, the Oststadt, in 1995.

In 1954, the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts moved into the new building designed by Sep Ruf in Bingstrasse by the Nuremberg Zoo.

Zabo and the club

1. FC Nürnberg has been based in Zerzabelshof since 1913 and celebrated numerous successes in the club's own sports park Zerzabelshof , or Zabo for short . A total of eight German championships and three cup victories were able to cheer the clubbers in the old Zabo , of which only a memorial stone in Kachletstrasse today reminds us. In the north curve of the Zabo there was a memorial erected in 1925 for the club members who died in the First World War , which remained there even after the renovation of the Zabo Sports Park at the end of the Second World War . Thanks to the success of the soccer department, 1. FC Nürnberg was able to set up an “exemplary sports park” for all departments of the club in Zerzabelshof by the Second World War. With the introduction of the Bundesliga, the club decided to move to the municipal stadium . The old Zabo was sold. In 1966 the stadium was demolished, and in 1968 the villa-like clubhouse, as 1. FC Nürnberg was building a new training ground in the south of Zerzabelshof, at the Valznerweiher . The old club area in the Kachletstraße and Jochensteinstraße area was built over with apartments. To this day there is a close connection between 1. FC Nürnberg and the Zerzabelshof district, which is also discussed in a variety of ways.
