From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Großkorbetha is a village and a former municipality in the Burgenlandkreis district, in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. Since 1 September 2010, it is part of the town Weißenfels. n a resulting between 830 and 850 directory of the tithe of the monastery Hersfeld (large) Korbetha first mentioned as a tenth place in the Curuuati Friesenfeld documentary. The second entry in the same directory refers to the Kotbetha near Schkopau. Kleinkorbetha appears only as a parvi corvete in 1430, but it is older, since already 1330 corvete superius is handed down, which thus presupposes the existence of the small Korbetha beyond the Saale. The place name can be traced back to Germanic cart wading, which is topographically confirmed by the existing already in prehistoric times Saalefurten between both places or between Gniebendorf and Kleinkorbetha. At that time, the Saale shared here in several flat arms, which made it possible to pass or drive through. Some dead remainders and hollows are still recognizable. Over the centuries, the spelling changed several times. So in 1458 is the Korwetha speech (still colloquially "Korweete"), 1545 Great Corbetha. From 1593 the inscription Grosscorbetha can be found in the church bell; since 1933, the village finally bears the name Großkorbetha, which is still valid today. In 1293, the construction of the church in honorem sancti Martini (in honor of St. Martin) began. In 1433, large parts of the town were flooded by the river Saale, destroying forty houses. During the Thirty Years' War, the village was set on fire by Swedish troops for unpaid contribution. In 1804, a conflagration destroyed a large part of the village. Großkorbetha, Gniebendorf and Kleinkorbetha belonged until 1815 to the Electorate of Saxony and the Kingdom of Saxony. Kleinkorbetha on the eastern bank of the Saale was subordinate to the Hochstift-Merseburg office Lützen, which was under Electoral Saxon sovereignty since 1561 and 1656/57 and 1738 belonged to Sekundogenitur-Principality of Saxony-Merseburg. Großkorbetha and Gniebendorf west of the Saale were located in the north of the Electoral Saxon office Weißenfels [Burgwerben court), which belonged between 1656/57 and 1746 to Sekundogenitur-Principality of Saxony-Weissenfels. Through the decisions of the Congress of Vienna came the three towns with the western part of the Office Lützen and the Office Weissenfels in 1815 to Prussia. In 1816 they were assigned to the administrative district of Merseburg in the province of Saxony. While Kleinkorbetha was assigned to the district of Merseburg, Grosskorbetha and Gniebendorf came to the district of Weißenfels. In 1856, the Grosskorbetha station was put into operation, which became crucial due to its location as a hub for passenger and freight traffic and for the further development of the town. In 1981, the inhabitants of the village celebrated the 1100th anniversary of the first mention. Twenty years later, on the 7th of December, the Saale bridge between Groß- and Kleinkorbetha was inaugurated. At the first district reform in the GDR Kleinkorbetha was reclassified on July 1, 1950 in the district of Weissenfels and incorporated into Großkorbetha. With the second district reform in 1952 Großkorbetha came to the district of Weissenfels in the district of Halle, which in 1990 again became the district of Weissenfels and in 2007 in Burgenlandkreis rose. On September 1, 2010 Großkorbetha was incorporated with its hamlets Kleinkorbetha and Gniebendorf to Weissenfels.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
