More about the History of Grossbeeren

Großbeeren was first mentioned in a 1271 deed. It was devastated in the Thirty Years' War and again in 1760, when Russian and Habsburg troops in the course of the Seven Years' War burnt down the church and several houses. On August 23, 1813, the Sixth Coalition under Crown Prince Charles XIV John of Sweden and General Friedrich Wilhelm Freiherr von Bülow (Bülow vacation rentals | Bülow travel guide) defeated three corps of the Imperial French Army under Marshal Nicolas Oudinot in their advance on Berlin (Berlin vacation rentals | Berlin travel guide) at the Battle of Großbeeren. A memorial tower in the village centre was erected on the hundredth anniversary in 1913. Furthermore, a fieldstone pyramid from 1906 on a pasture west of Großbeeren is dedicated to General von Bülow.

In September 1942 the Gestapo established a labour camp in Großbeeren, where at least 1197 forced labourers from Belgium, Czechoslovakia, France, Poland, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union were killed. Werner Seelenbinder was imprisoned here in 1943. Großbeeren shared its borders with the former West Berlin, and so during the period 1961-1990 it was separed from it by the Berlin Wall.
