More about the History of Sommersdorf

From the summer of 1208, Sommersdorf belonged to the Chen village and the influence of the Archbishopric of Magdeburg (Magdeburg vacation rentals | Magdeburg travel guide) from 1680 in the Duchy of Magdeburg for Prussian Brandenburg. From 1807 to 1813, the city temporarily belonged to the Kingdom of Westphalia until farmers pressed for the removal of a large part of the tax burdens.

On 12 April 1990, the border crossing to Büddenstedt-Hohnsleben opened. After the political changes of 1989 many jobs were lost: the lignite mining in Wulfersdorf closed in 1989 and the power plant in neighboring Harbke in 1991. Finally, in 1992, the production of the briquette factory Völpker also closed. The massive job loses lead to major problems in Sommersdorf. In the summer of 1992 the village renovation program began which included new roofs, heating systems and windows. Also important is a central drainage system in operation since 1999.
