HistoryEdit

  • First Steimbke document is from 1175.
  • During the Thirty Years' War Steimbke was taken by catholic Tilly temporarily.

In development of the village, the industrial union "Gewerkschaft Brigitta" had the greatest share in 1934 by beginning oil production. "Brigitta" established an estate for industrial workers with bounteous sports facilities, a stadion with flood light and an indoor- as well as an outdoor swimming pool. In the meantime, the reduction of oil production has resulted to the abolishment of the pumpjacks that in former times have been Steimbke's landmark. As of 30 June 2005, Steimbke had a population of 2.739.
