More about the History of Ahrensburg

The town dates back to the 13th Century, when the Counts of Schauenburg founded the village of Woldenhorn (which later became the town of Ahrensburg) and the neighbouring villages Ahrensfelde, Meilsdorf and Beimoor. Woldenhorn is first mentioned in the year 1314. The village came into the possession of the Cistercian Reinfeld Abbey in 1327, and Woldenhorn became the seat of the monastery reeve until the middle of the 16th century.

The construction of the railway between Hamburg (Hamburg vacation rentals | Hamburg travel guide) and Lübeck (Lübeck vacation rentals | Lübeck travel guide) in the year 1865 made Ahrensburg a well loved destination for outings outside Hamburg and the number of inhabitants increased. By 1910, the population had reached 2750. The incorporation of various surrounding communities in the year 1928 lead to an increase in the town area to about 5 km². Building of the settlements "Daheim/Heimgarten" (partially on the territory of the current community of Ammersbek) and "Am Hagen" (originally called "Franz Seldte Settlement") commenced in 1933. The rush of settlers from around Hamburg lead to the creation of the current relaxed housing layout. When Ahrensburg received city rights in 1949, the town had some 17 775 inhabitants - around half of which were refugees from the former eastern German regions. The town infrastructure was greatly improved and expanded during the following decades. At the same time many companies settled at the edge of town and helped make Ahrensburg a well known business centre in Schleswig-Holstein.
